Research Interests: 

Dr. McGeary's clinical and research interests primarily involve developing and assessing multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary treatment strategies for a variety of chronic health conditions (most notably, musculoskeletal and neuropathic chronic pain). He has a strong interest in empirically-supported pain treatments involving strong behavioral self-management components (e.g., functional restoration), as well as the identification of factors that contribute to resiliency to mental and physical illness. The majority of his experience and expertise has been focused on chronic pain rehabilitation research and clinical work in multi- and interdisciplinary environments. He is also significantly interested in translational research (e.g., practical behavioral trials) focusing on adapting clinical research findings into functional clinical programs. Finally, he is skilled in multimodal biofeedback and am one of only a few professionals trained to provide fecal incontinence biofeedback training for the military.
