The mission of the Psychophysiologic Disorders Association (PPDA) is to end the chronic pain epidemic and opioid crisis. Advancing the diagnosis and treatment of stress-induced medical conditions suffered by millions worldwide, our work provides a new approach to eliminate (not just manage) chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraines, irritable bowel, chronic fatigue, pelvic pain and much more. Our evidence-based treatment approach is demonstrably safer, more affordable and more effective than traditional methods or alternative medicine.
Aside from supporting clinical pain and neuroscience research, we educate health professionals and the public about the mind-body connection and the brain's powerful ability to generate real physical symptoms. In doing so, we increase the number of professionals around the world who can better diagnose and treat chronic pain and medically unexplained symptoms, and provide resources to patients to recover from home without opioids.
