CJ's Story

Pain Management Patient Story“Severe pain from an automobile accident was ruining my life until I saw Dr. Cheatle and the staff at The Behavioral Medicine Pain Management Center.”

- Dr. CJ Rhoads, M.Ed., D.Ed

Dr. CJ Rhoads, a noted speaker, author, expert technology consultant, and Kutztown University professor, suffered for several years from debilitating neck and back spasms, as well as a mild traumatic brain injury that left her discouraged and desperate.

After receiving treatment from Dr. Cheatle and his team, she learned techniques to manage the pain and to regain her cognitive skills. Although she’ll never be completely pain-free, she credits her team with returning her to normal activities. She was recently named one of Pennsylvania’s Best 50 Women in Business. “I couldn’t have done it without them. They taught me what I needed to know and now I have a fabulous life.”

The Behavioral Pain Management Center provides patients with the skills necessary to optimize function and foster a healthier lifestyle through education, exercise, counseling, and peer support in a safe and nurturing environment.

Physician referrals are necessary.
