Pain Neuroscience Program Starting in January

Manitowoc, Wis., (January 10, 2022) – Holy Family Memorial (HFM) Wellness Center is offering a new Pain Neuroscience Education Program to help individuals take control of their chronic pain and health, and get back the life they want.

Chronic pain and symptoms can impact many aspects of a person’s life. Fatigue, brain fog, memory issues, difficulty controlling emotions, significant health care costs, increased stress, fear of movement, and time away from work can accompany the pain.

Pain Neuroscience Education (PNE) is an educational strategy that focuses on teaching people about pain and the body’s processes involved in the pain experience. This program will combine pain neuroscience education along with other strategies and exercises for treating pain.

Research has shown that learning about pain with pain neuroscience education, combined with movement and exercise, can improve chronic pain, increase function, and reduce health care costs.

The first program will start on Tuesday, Jan. 25. This six-session program runs over the course of a month and is held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. A multidisciplinary team including a physical therapist, behavioral health provider, registered dietitian, and group exercise instructors will facilitate the program.

The cost is $50 for Wellness Center members and $75 for non-members. To register or for more information, contact Eric Rebne, DPT, at 920-320-5201 or [email protected].
