Chronic Pain Workshop - Help for people with long-term pain

August 13, 2013

(Greater Brunswick Area – August 13, 2013) Spectrum Generations is offering a 6-week Chronic Pain Self Management workshop from September 19 through October 24, 2013 from 1:00-3:30 pm (Thursdays) at its location in the People Plus building located at 35 Union Street in Brunswick.  

 

The workshop is for adults who have long-term or chronic pain lasting longer than 3 to 6 months, or beyond the normal healing time for an injury who want to learn ways to better manage their pain and health concerns.  Participants of this interactive workshop also learn ways to deal with frustration, fatigue, poor sleep, and isolation. 

 

Studies have shown that participants of the Chronic Pain Workshop gain immediate benefits, such as more vitality and energy, reduced pain, a more independent lifestyle, improved mental health, more involvement in everyday activities, and more overall satisfaction with their lives.

 

The workshop cost $75, which covers all materials. Some scholarships are available.  To register, call Tina DeRaps at 620-1657 or tderaps@spectrumgenerations.org.
