Chronic Pain Management

If you suffer from long-lasting (chronic) pain—from an injury, surgery, or health condition—you are not alone. About 100 million Americans are living with chronic pain. That’s more than are living with diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined! But there are many things you can do to manage your pain—and we can help. Our Healthier Living Workshop for Chronic Pain can help you learn ways to reduce pain, deal with related issues like having trouble sleeping, and more.
