We provide support and information for people with injuries due to repetitive motion, i.e. carpal tunnel, tendinitis. etc., or any repetitive movement, and dealing with chronic pain that can persist. Local and internationally known experts address our group each month. For 2013 we will be meeting on the 1st Tuesday of the month.
