Embracing Change presentation introducing our new Kaiser

Understanding Pain Through the Mind-Body Connection


If you, or someone you know, lives with persistent pain, you can learn to better manage pain and have an improved quality of life.  This presentation will address:
•    Differences between acute and chronic pain
•    Connection between mood and physical pain
•    Discussion of neuroplasticity and how it relates to chronic pain. How psychological/cognitive-behavioral techniques and pain management skills help retrain your brain
•    Review the proven methods that can reduce chronic pain symptoms, enabling individuals to feel better over time
