Called the best doctor you’ve never heard of by Forbes magazine, Dr. Sarno is a pain and rehabilition specialist who has pioneered a succesful treatment approach to chronic pain.

The impact is startling. We have also spoken to numerous other pain specialists and sufferers, including Dr.Gabor Mate, Larry David and Howard Stern who provide their own experiences with pain and Dr. Sarno’s treatment.
