The DOC Journey

The DOC Journey is a collection of resources that provides information, tools, strategies and support that enables you to develop a game plan around your unique set of issues and circumstances.

Through awareness, hope, forgiveness, and play, you will learn methods that stimulate physical changes in your brain (neuroplasticity) and re-direct your nervous system to optimize your body’s reaction from one of threat... to one of safety... to one that's free from pain.

"Helping patients heal from chronic pain has been 

the most rewarding phase of my medical and surgical career."

Meet Dr. David Hanscom

Orthopedic Spinal Surgeon

I’ve been there.
That's why I used the knowledge acquired in my medical background, my own struggle with chronic pain, the experiences of hundreds of my patients, and the vital research underway in the field of neuroscience, to develop a program that works for me and other people that are suffering.
Stress isn't the problem, it's your reaction to it.
  • Your body reacts to stress with physiological changes that create mental and physical symptoms.
Avoiding stress increases stress.
  • Learn to minimize the impact of stress on your body. 
Take back your life
  • This course is a sequence of lessons that reflect my journey, my patients' journeys, the best clinical practices, and the wisdom of modern neuroscience.

Dana's Story
"The Q&A sessions I attend 2x per week are such an important part of my support system as I've started navigating the DOC Journey.  I've suffered with chronic pain for over three years, and after two spine surgeries that provided no relief of my symptoms, I felt very alone and confused.  I found this special community during a time when I felt little hope, and I know the timing was providential."
Laura's Story
"I met David about ten years ago and learned of his book back then. I’m really enjoying taking part in the groups as much as I can. I’m pain free these days, and I have the doc journey to thank for that!"
