Mind-Body Medicine | David Schechter, MD

Mind Body Medicine Physician David Schechter MDMind-Body Medicine is a fascinating field that I am very passionate about. My mentor in this area was John Sarno, M.D. a true pioneer. He was my inspiration as a medical student at NYU years ago. Sarno is a unique thinker who has written four popular books linking chronic back pain to emotional tension.  Dr. Sarno died in 2017 after a long, fruitful career and a long life.

Sarno’s diagnosis of TMS (tension myositis  or myoneural syndrome) has led me to develop a clinical program, written materials, a workbook, a web site, an audio program and help develop, a non-profit Research Foundation (inactive) under whose auspices I did research for several years about this approach. Regardless of your problem, I believe that having a doctor who understands the mind-body link is a big plus.
