"OC Pain Matters" is a peer-to-peer support group at the Hoag Neurosciences Institute and will be held the beginning of every month. Millions of people deal with challenges associated with pain and finding others who can relate with this experience first-hand is therapeutic in helping to live a happy and productive life.
This is a peer-support group format and will meet to discuss a variety of topics and learn from others how they manage pain to help us manage our own. Topics that will be discussed will include pain conditions, treatments and therapies, the emotional experience, how the family is affected, medications, addiction, lifestyle changes, exercise, finding the best doctors and much more.
Occasionally we will have guest speakers share and educate us on a variety of options and resources available.
Come and meet others who can relate and inspire group participants to feel more empowered to face the daily challenges of living with chronic pain.
