Workplace Transformation: A Paradigm Shift in Chronic or Persistent Pain
By Dr. David Schechter M.D. and Mia Khalil, Integrative NLP Coach

In today's fast-paced corporate environment, the well-being of employees is more crucial than ever. Yet, there's a silent issue that often goes unnoticed: chronic or persistent pain. Affecting up to 40% of American workers, chronic pain is more than just a personal health issue; it's a significant workplace concern, impacting productivity, morale, and overall corporate health culture.

The Hidden Cost of Chronic or Persistent Pain

The financial burden of chronic pain on American employers is staggering. Annually, it costs the United States an estimated $560 to $635 billion, including both direct medical costs and productivity losses. Beyond the numbers, the human cost is profound: decreased job performance, concentration issues, and strained relationships in the workplace.

A Paradigm Shift   

Recognizing this pressing issue, we've developed the Chronic or Persistent Pain Education and Recovery Program. This initiative isn't just another wellness program; it's a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to transforming how organizations handle chronic pain.

Scientifically Proven Approach

Developed by experts, Dr. David Schechter, clinical psychologist Dr. Justin Barker, and Mia Khalil, our program combines medical insights with psychological understanding. It's an integrative, online, self-paced journey rooted in the latest research in chronic or persistent pain recovery.

Customizable Solutions

Each individual experiences pain differently, which is why our program offers a range of modalities that are tailored to specific needs and symptoms. It's not a one-size-fits-all solution; it's a personalized path to recovery.

Supporting Leadership

A unique aspect of our program is the Manager Module. It educates leaders and managers on chronic or persistent pain and how to effectively support team members struggling with it. This module is crucial in fostering a supportive and empathetic workplace culture.
