Pain Reframed

Apr 11, 2019

This week on the Pain Reframed podcast, Dr. David Hanscom joins Tim Flynn and Jeff Moore to discuss the strategies he uses to help chronic pain patients, and why recovery is ultimately in the hands of the patient, not the clinician.

Dr. Hanscom is an orthopedic complex spinal deformity surgeon who now understands that most chronic pain from any source is solvable – usually without surgery. He is the creator of the DOC (Direct your Own Care) program, which is the subject of his book, Back in Control: A Surgeon’s Roadmap out of Chronic Pain. He also publishes a weekly blog and maintains a website,, to provide resources for chronic pain patients and their families. Dr. Hanscom distinguishes himself from many spine surgeons in that he strongly encourages non-surgical solutions for his patients, a belief which stems from his own battle with chronic pain.
