Explore Our Four Pillars


At the core of IOCH's mission is groundbreaking use-inspired research focused on understanding the interplay of factors that contribute to chronic pain and movement problems. Projects include those related to measurement, personalized care, and clinical reasoning. We aim to explore impact focused research topics for generating real societal change.


IOCH is at the forefront of developing innovative software solutions aimed at revolutionizing chronic pain management and support. Our key developments include the Biopsychosocial Process Based Case Management Software (PB-CMS) and the Chronic Pain Empowerment Network (CPEN), a prosocial learning and support ecosystem.

Clinical Services and Outreach

Our clinical services continue the foundation established by DMR Move, a rehabilitation practice renowned for its clinicians trained in the Human Rehabilitation Framework (HRF). Now under the acquisition of IOCH, we are expanding our reach through initiatives such as workshops, public health campaigns, and partnerships with healthcare providers to enhance care standards.


IOCH offers a comprehensive suite of educational programs for healthcare providers, patients, and the community. These programs aim to disseminate knowledge about effective pain management strategies, promote psychological flexibility, and foster a supportive community for those affected by chronic pain.

At IOCH, Your Path Matters

OUR Approach

IOCH was established with a vision to inspire hope and promote personal growth.

In the United States, a significant portion of the population faces ongoing challenges with pain and movement. Traditional methods often emphasize the musculoskeletal system and biomechanics, important yet limited facets of a much broader spectrum of factors influencing pain and movement difficulties. This narrow focus has possibly led to the limited success of existing treatment models, leaving many individuals in continued distress. Recent scientific advancements highlight the intricate link between our physical, cognitive, and emotional experiences and these health challenges.

At IOCH, we understand that your health concerns encompass more than just the physical aspects; they are intertwined with your entire being. This understanding is the cornerstone of our practice, fully embodied by the Human Rehabilitation Framework (HRF). The HRF represents a pioneering, process-based rehabilitation approach, deeply rooted in the Biopsychosocial Model. It emerged from a collaborative effort with global pain and movement specialists, bringing together cutting-edge findings in pain science, rehabilitation, behavioral science, and psychological flexibility techniques.

Our commitment to the HRF has enabled us to guide numerous clients and patients through their health challenges, including those who had previously seen little to no improvement. Regardless of whether you are facing new pain and movement issues or have been battling them for years, IOCH is dedicated to your journey towards better health.
