Traci Patterson

Dr. Traci Patterson is the Founder and Executive Director of Advanced Pathways, the Creator of the Holistic Centered Treatment (HCT) protocol, and the Creator of CRPS Hub.  She is a clinician, certified instructor, clinical hypnotist and is an expert in CRPS and chronic pain.  Specializing in the treatment of chronic pain patients, Traci, is helping individuals regain their lives with HCT. 

Traci has a dynamic background from a perspective that few if any other clinician, physician, or healthcare provider can offer.  Her background as a chronic pain patient diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), someone that utilized mind-body medicine (hypnosis, neuroplasticity training, working with limbic system, etc.) to get into remission, and is now treating other chronic pain patients is rare.  She has patients, pediatrics to geriatrics, which contact her globally searching for answers and relief.

Patterson was diagnosed with a very aggressive, volatile case of type 2 CRPS in 2007.  She went through all of the traditional treatment regiments prescribed by a top pain management doctor in Orange County, California.  This included physical therapy, medications, local blocks, regional blocks, lumbar sympathetic blocks (LSB), etc.  After several years, traditional treatments failed to help and only progressed the condition.  Spinal cord stimulator(s) (SCS) caused the CRPS to move into her back, and caused a build-up of scar tissue on the dura.  It was at that time that she opted to have the SCS removed permanently.

During her journey, Traci, tried many treatment options including HBOT, mudpacks for pain, IV treatments, ultrasound and other modalities - none of which provided relief.   

Following the removal of the SCS she turned to integrative treatments in Germany and Mexico for several years to help decrease her pain and manage her condition.  These treatments helped to decrease the inflammation in the body, decrease the pain levels by half, diminish the area of the CRPS, but did not hold long-term.

Late 2013, Traci completed a week long Intensive in the US utilizing hypnosis, biofeedback, light/sound therapy, etc... to regain her life and gain long-term remission.  This was the jumping off point for Advanced Pathways.

Traci is well known within the CRPS and chronic pain communities as a patient advocate.  She is very passionate about ensuring the chronic pain community is not left behind.  

Traci consults with physicians, clinics and universities as a ‘Patient Expert’ and CRPS expert on a global basis.  In addition she’s a keynote and motivational speaker, published author, blogger and photographer.  Traci has dedicated her life to helping other chronic pain patients.
