Free seminar on how to manage pain
AN estimated 20 per cent of Australian adults are experiencing chronic pain, with more women than men suffering.
Juniper is holding a free seminar on how to manage chronic pain, looking at why we experience pain, various types of pain and managing it without medication.
“It is possible to effectively manage 70-80 per cent of chronic pain, however only 10 per cent of those affected are receiving adequate treatment,” said Juniper’s community nurse Janet Anderson.
“This is will be a beneficial seminar for those suffering from chronic pain or caring for someone who suffers from chronic pain.”
The one-hour seminar is on Wednesday, February 24 at 2pm at Sutton Community Centre, Juniper Rowethorpe, 4-10 Hayman Road, Bentley
