GILLETTE, WY – Campbell County Health (CCH) professionals are hosting a
Chronic Pain Management Symposium to offer tips and tools to help participants improve function and regain
areas of life that were once enjoyed. Dates the symposium is offered include:
- Friday, September 21, 2018 from 1-3 pm at the Campbell County Senior Center,
701 Stocktrail Avenue, Gillette
- Thursday, September 27, 2018 from 6-8 pm at the Campbell County Public
Library, 1201 S. 4-J Road, Gillette
During both two-hour sessions, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists and
physicians will demonstrate and talk about coping strategies, flare-up management,
how food and lifestyle impact pain, how to change the fight or flight
response to pain and other alternatives. Both sessions are free and open
to all adults with chronic pain.
“Medication does work when taken and used correctly; however, human
beings are strong creatures and as healthcare professionals, we want to
help our chronic pain population learn other ways to help them retrain
their brain and its response to pain,” says Symposium coordinator
and CCH nurse, Marcia Saunders.
Chronic pain is a life-altering and debilitation condition that affects
thousands of people all over the world. Chronic pain is defined as a pain
lasting six months or longer, is ongoing and lasts beyond the expected
time for healing.
