    We all experience pain from time to time – from headaches to muscle strains. But many people live with ongoing, persistent pain – known as chronic pain – that comes from injuries or conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, nerve damage, and others. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 11% - 40% of the U.S. adult population has chronic pain that impacts their physical and mental health and is one of the most common reasons that people seek medical care.

    That’s the bad news. The good news is that help is available for people in Portage County. Healthy Living with Chronic Pain -- an evidence-based program for people living with on-going, persistent pain – will be offered at Lincoln Center beginning Thursdays, April 2, 2020 and running through May 7, 2020 sponsored by the United Way of Portage County. The program provides information and strategies for reducing and managing pain and has been researched and proven to decrease pain, improve mental health, and increase confidence in one’s ability to manage pain down the road. Each weekly session is 2-1/2 hours long and provides a venue for mutual support and sharing among participants. The suggested donation for taking this workshop is $30 to cover the cost of the textbook that participants receive.
