Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain
Ended March 22
Aging Resource Center

Developed at Stanford University, this evidence-based, six-week interactive workshop was designed to enhance treatments already in place for participants dealing with chronic pain. The program, facilitated by two trained leaders, teaches participants a host of skills needed to manage health while staying active and involved in their own lives. Some topics to be discussed in the workshop include: 


1) techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, isolation, and poor sleep;


2) appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance;


3) appropriate use of medications;


4) communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals;


5) nutrition;


6) pacing activity and rest;


and 7) how to evaluate new treatments.
