A certified Therapeutic Pain Specialist is a health care provider that has completed post professional training in the area of Pain Neuroscience Education (PNE). PNE is an effective, non invasive and innovative way to approach complicated chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome / reflex sympathetic dystrophy, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, and chronic back or neck pain. Improving patient understanding of "how pain works" empowers the patient to regain mobility and function with less fear and apprehension.
Ellen has developed a special interest in working with patients who have chronic medical conditions such as dysautonomia (POTS), chronic fatigue syndrome, post covid syndrome and connective tissue disorders; specifically joint hypermobility syndromes such as Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. She regularly treats general orthopedic conditions including post operative rehabilitation. She enjoys applying her knowledge of ergonomic assessment and modifications for desk workers and is available for contract to provide industrial ergonomic assessments for manual laborors and material handlers.
