People suffering from chronic pain have another option to help them cope:
classes in pain management. St. John’s Medical Center is offering
a complimentary eight-week session of classes designed to help people
learn new skills to improve their quality of life.
“You can use your brain to help manage your pain,” said Holly
Richert, MS, neuropsychology technician at St. John’s Cognitive
Health. “Research shows that changing how we think about pain can
help reduce pain and change brain structures. This free class is open
to anyone with chronic pain who wants to learn new skills to improve their
quality of life.”
The next session of weekly pain management classes will be held on Wednesdays,
September 11–October 30, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at St. John’s
Medical Center. For more information and to register, call 307-739-7589.
