This is a 6-week workshop for those who want to learn ways to better manage their pain and health concerns. The workshop is held once a week for 2 1/2 hours for adults who have long-term or chronic pain lasting longer than six months, or beyond the expected healing time for an injury.
Participants of this interactive workshop learn ways to deal with frustration, fatigue, poor sleep, and isolation.
You will also learn:
- appropriate exercises for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, endurance
