About Nikki Stone, Olympic Games Gold Medalist

Best known for being the first American to win a gold medal in inverted aerial skiing, Nikki Stone understands what it is like to be living with persistent chronic pain, after experiencing a back injury from a skiing accident. Months after the injury, Nikki's pain continued on a daily basis and made it difficult for her to perform once simple activities. Her doctor diagnosed her as having persistent chronic pain and worked with her to develop a pain management plan. The plan that worked for Nikki included a prescription medication, which helped manage her pain so that she could participate in physical therapy to strengthen the muscles in her back. With the combination of medication, physical therapy, doctor supervision and tireless motivation, Nikki was able to work her way back to competing and became the first American to win a gold medal in inverted aerial skiing. Today, Nikki hopes to motivate others suffering with chronic pain to speak with their doctors to find a program to manage their pain.
