Only those people who have suffered from chronic pain truly understand its impact on a life, says chronic pain expert, Caroline Hoogerwerf. As the result of back injury, she has been a chronic pain patient for over 5 years. During this time she has been on a waiting list for treatment for more than one-and-a-half years. Caroline has been sent from pillar to post, discovering mistakes in her file and many other issues along the way. She has tried countless therapies to overcome her pain, and through her efforts, discovered remedies she could take into her own hands—tips she wishes to share with others.
Caroline has a degree in biology and works as sports massage therapist, sensi-therapist, and breathing coach, which has allowed her to regard chronic pain through the lens of both patient and therapist. Through her work, she bridges the communication gap between doctor and patient. What questions does your doctor ask you? What should you tell your doctor and what shouldn’t you tell him or her? How can you prevent mistakes in your health records? And how do you own your pain and take the control of your healing process into your own hands? Because of her experience as a chronic pain patient and through the experiences of other chronic pain patients, Caroline puts her finger on the weak spots and offers healing solutions.
Caroline’s mission is to decrease the waiting time for pain patients by 50% and to bring the healing process into their own hands. Ten percent of the profits of Caroline’s book will go to the Klara Foundation to help children in Kisumu Kenya.
