Pain management in Montrose

A FREE self-management to help people living with pain to have an improved quality of life is due to start in Montrose in October.

Beginning on Tuesday, October 9, the eight-week course will be delivered by Angus Community Health Partnership supported by Pain Association Scotland in the Links Health Centre’s health education room.

At the first meeting Phil Sizer from Pain Association Scotland will talk about some of the benefits of self-management and explain about the pain management course in more detail.

This course is for anyone suffering with chronic pain who would like to find out what they can do to self-manage their pain more effectively. Designed to be very relaxed, the course encourages friendly interactive participation from members with questions and answer sessions and informal discussion groups, giving them the opportunity to hear how others cope with their pain.
