Yesterday, Dr. Michael J. Amendolara (http://www.FreedomNowMD.com) joined Martin Pytela and I on a Blab about pain. We did discuss Fibromyalgia as well as the Mind/Body connection. The topic of how our subconscious mind works to ‘protect’ us from ‘feeling’ our emotions by distracting us also came up and it is ‘must listening’ by anyone frustrated by lack of progress towards living an active life.
Dr. Amendolara has been a licensed Medical Doctor since 1989 and has been a Board Certified Family Physician for more than 20 years. During his career as a medical doctor so far, he has spent many years practicing as an Urgent Care Physician and a General Primary Care Physician. Most recently, for the past 4 years, he specialized in Therapeutic Injections treating arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and many other musculoskeletal problems. He has done more than 40,000 joint injections for osteoarthritis of the knees with amazing success.
He received a Bachelor of Science degree in BioMechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a Grade Point Average of 3.97. He was admitted to membership to the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society and the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. He then attended UMDNJ: Robert Wood Johnson Medical School with a Full Tuition Scholarship. After medical school, he completed his medical internship and Family Medicine Residency at Somerset Medical Center in Somerville, NJ.
