Understanding Pain – Rethinking Pain, Community-based pain support
The Rethinking Pain team are delighted to invite you to attend our Understanding Pain sessions!
Attending ‘Understanding Pain’ is the first step to a better quality of life when you have pain everyday. This is a great opportunity for you to get to understand more about pain and how your body responds to it. As well as finding out about ways to cope with day-to-day pain, rather than relying on pain medications and clinical treatments alone. You’ll also have a chance to meet and chat with others who also live with persistent pain.
You can attend in person, or for those of you who may find this difficult, we are also running online sessions.
After attending, and if it’s of interest, you will also be able to get more support from us with other pain related issues that may affect you. For example, help with diet, sleep, pain medications and flare ups, safe ways to remain physically active, emotional and relationship support and more!
This is what a participant said about attending Understanding Pain:
“Understanding Pain felt like a first step to me having more tools to help with my pain than just pills, it’s like building me back up! I learnt lots and it made me aware of other ways to deal with my pain day to day. It also gave me an opportunity to talk about my situation with people who understand, because they are experiencing similar pain issues, which was a real help”.
We really hope you’ll take up this invitation and a chance to meet some of the Rethinking Pain team, and remember you can bring someone along with you (if that helps).
