Potomac, MD (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
Healthy Directions, LLC, today announced that it has joined with pain management specialist Joseph Pergolizzi Jr., MD, to provide consumers with expert guidance and a safe, innovative product that delivers quick and long-lasting pain relief.
Dr. Pergolizzi joins Healthy Directions’ team of health experts who are leaders in the field of alternative and integrative medicine and whose recommendations and nutritional products are based on years of study, research, and clinical practice.
“We are pleased to have Dr. Pergolizzi join our roster of prestigious doctors,” says Healthy Directions CEO Connie Hallquist. “He has worked as a top medical consultant to develop nearly every major prescription pain relief product that has come on the market in the past 15 years, and he is highly regarded by his patients, which include members of law enforcement, doctors, professional athletes, celebrities, and others who are suffering with chronic and acute pain.”
Dr. Pergolizzi received his MD from Ross University School of Medicine and also has a BS in Physical Chemistry from St. Johns University. He completed a clinical research fellowship in the Department of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he currently serves as an Adjunct Assistant Professor. Dr. Pergolizzi is Chairman of the Scientific Research Abstract and Poster Committee for PAINWEEK, and is an executive member of the international pain consortium CHANGE PAIN. He also serves as the Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Association of Chronic Pain Patients. Dr. Pergolizzi has authored more than 200 peer reviewed articles, abstracts, platform presentations, and book chapters.
“I am especially glad to be working with Healthy Directions because of their established credibility in the healthcare community and their relentless dedication toward providing the absolute best-in-class, cutting-edge products for their customers,” says Dr. Pergolizzi. “Healthy Directions also provides consumers with safe and effective options, and in the field of pain management, we need options because pain is very personalized and there is no one ‘golden bullet’ that works for everyone.”
Dr. Pergolizzi’s pain relief product, along with his related expert guidance and educational content, is scheduled to debut in August.
