Dr. Amy Novotny: How can stress influence pain in our bodies?
Welcome to episode #118 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast! Today we have with us Dr. Amy Novotny! Amy founded the PABR® Institute with the mission to provide pain, stress and anxiety relief to those who seek a naturalistic form of treatment when other treatment methods have fallen short. Her unique approach comes from her experience treating in a variety of settings and with a wide range of patient populations over the past 11 years. Her background in orthopedics, sports, geriatrics, balance disorders, nerve injuries, and most recently, chronic pain.
We find out why Amy chose Arizona State for her undergraduate experience, how she got into helping people out of pain and stress through breath work, why people believe that pain is synonymous with aging, how she helps entrepreneurs perform at a higher level, how stress influences pain in our bodies, how Amy got to travel around the world using these methods, how she was able to run 50 miles pain free, how college students who have experienced trauma or abuse can get relief, and Amy’s favorite restaurant in Scottsdale. Enjoy!
