#2 How exercise and movement can help manage pain
#3 How medicines may help manage your pain
How the foods you eat affect you and your pain
#4 How understanding your pain can help you manage it better
You can start Pain School at any time. You may drop in, or ask your Primary Care Team to refer you to Pain School. Pain School is also offered via video-conferencing at your local CBOC. For more information contact Joyce Compton, RN at 304-263-0811 extension 6111.
