Chronic pain management workshop announced

Published:

The Area Agency on Aging will hold a Chronic Pain Self-management Workshop beginning Nov. 7, 1-3:30 p.m., at the Area Agency on Aging Region 9 office in Byesville, Ohio.

The Chronic Pain Self-Management Program is a valuable tool to anyone who is living with chronic pain, no matter what the reason.

Many times doctors tell their patients that they will have to live with chronic pain, but the program will offer tips on how people deal with it when they are suffering on a daily basis.

The Chronic Pain Self-Management Workshop covers chronic pain from a variety of conditions, such as: those with low back pain, neck pain, fibromyalgia, accidents, injuries and numerous other life events that can cause one to be living with chronic pain.

Learning how to manage pain to live a full and satisfying life can be a daily challenge.

Everyone with chronic pain is different; there is no one treatment that will fit every person.

Each workshop runs for six weeks, meeting weekly for two and one half hours per session.

Sessions begin at 1 p.m. and run until 3:30 p.m.

The six weeks will show different techniques to help manage the pain better and will also show new ideas that may really work for particular types of pain.

Adults of any age are welcome to attend this workshop.

For more information about the program and to register for the upcoming workshop, contact Carol Baker at 800-932-7277, Ext. 4704 or 740-435-4704.

The Area Agency on Aging Region 9, Inc., is located at 60788 Southgate Road, Byesville, Ohio.
