Karen Hummel is a wellness coach whose passion is helping others with pain. She holds a masters degree in Health Service Management and a baccalaureate degree in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology. Karen is a Certified Personal Trainer with eighteen years of training experience and has served as a Wellness Director for several large corporations.

In 1998, after years of perseverance to reach her own fitness goal she was seriously injured in an automobile accident and told prior to surgery that she would almost certainly be a paraplegic. Karen refused to believe this and after three surgeries her surgeon told her that had it not been for the muscles she had developed from years of exercise she would not have walked away.
Several years later after excruciating pain, doctor’s visits, and medical tests, a piece of hardware from her original surgery was found to be piercing the spinal canal. This had caused tremendous nerve pain throughout her spine and eventually the loss of feeling in her right leg. Another surgery was scheduled but the chronic pain continued. One year later, testing found that a second device in her back had broken and the area had not healed properly., Karen had her last back surgery to correct the problem in 2006.
Karen has made tremendous improvements since her last surgery and is happy to be back at the gym, but still lives with chronic pain daily. She is in the process of writing a book about her experiences and hopes it will be an inspiration to others battling pain. More information is available at: http://www.karenhummel.com
