Description

Pain University is a 6 week interactive class designed to teach you about your pain and get you moving again. 

Every week you will learn more and more about your pain in a small group setting. We will use the latest research and apply it in an easy-to-understand format. Once you understand why you hurt, then we can individualize your treatment. What you would like to do again, if you did not hurt?

The second half of the class is all about movement. You will learn to gradually move again in a safe, healing environment. Our bodies are made to move. But when you have been in pain for so long, it can be challenging. The thought of moving again may provoke a significant amount of fear. This class is designed to help you overcome those fears in a gentle, but effective way.

At the end of the 6 weeks, you will come away with an individual treatment plan, based on movement and knowledge. This plan will give you the first steps in taking control of your life again. There is also an optional one on one session with a physical therapist. These therapists are specifically trained to help someone in chronic pain. This optional visit may include specific exercises as well as other treatment strategies focusing on the neuroscience of pain.
