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.
Support and education, including:
Each workshop session is 2 ½ hours, once a week, for six weeks.
People living with chronic pain for more than 3 to 6 months. Some chronic pain conditions are: musculoskeletal pain (neck, shoulder, back pain, etc.), fibromyalgia, postsurgical pain that lasts beyond 6 months, neuropathic pain, and poststroke pain. This workshop can also benefit people with persistent headache, Crohn’s disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, or those who experience severe muscular pain from conditions such as multiple sclerosis.
Let a Regional Coordinator near you answer your questions.
