Chronic pain program offered
GRASONVILLE – The Grasonville Senior Center will host a Chronic Pain Self-Management Program on Tuesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. April 19 through May 24. Classes will meet once each week for six weeks.
This free workshop is designed to help anyone with chronic pain to better manage their health, including friends or family who may want to show support. Participants will learn the tools needed to be in better control of their health, feel better physically, and help them to do the things they want to do in life.
Classes are interactive and highly participative. Class instructors believe mutual support and success builds confidence in the ability to manage one’s health and maintain an active lifestyle. Past participants report many benefits upon completing the program; these include relief from pain and fatigue, more energy, more confidence, and a greater sense of calm.
Topics of discussion include: pacing activities, healthy eating, learning and practicing a gentle “Moving Easy” exercise program, better management of medications and their side effects, relaxation techniques and getting a good night’s rest, communication skills and problem solving techniques to deal with frustration and fatigue, goal setting and much more.
The Grasonville Senior Center is located at 4802 Main Street, Grasonville. Advance registration is required. To register, contact Ann Martin at 410-827-6010, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
