This week we welcomed Abi Twomlow to present a workshop about chronic pain management. She covered areas including the impact of chronic pain on our lives, association with self esteem and confidence and in turn how this impacts upon our mood. Abi discussed how pain was produced and how this can develop in an unhelpful way.
Chronic pain management can provide strategies and positive steps to take back control, identify how our own beliefs may be impacting and coping methods to deal with these problems. It was concluded that small changes can make a big difference to not only how you feel but also how you live. The workshop aimed to get chronic pain patients back onto the path of thriving not just surviving!
The next pain management workshop by Abi Twomlow will be held next month. Details will be published soon.
