Take Control of Your Pain: Boston is a little over one week away! Take Control of Your Pain events are free, daylong seminars for people with pain and their caregivers to hear from experts in pain management and connect with other pain warriors. The event, which is cohosted by U.S. Pain and the Academy of Integrative Pain Management in conjunction with the academy’s annual conference, will take place Nov. 10 from 10 am to 3:30 pm at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School.
The day will feature talks ranging from a renowned pain specialist offering insight into communicating with your care team, to the perspective of a Boston Marathon survivor and pain warrior, to live demonstrations with a new virtual reality program for pain management.
In addition to educational presentations and workshops, attendees will have the chance to win one of five exciting prizes: a Quell device starter kit ($299 value); an Oska Pulse device ($399 value); one of two Ergo21 seat cushions valued ($80 value each); and an Aloe MD gift basket.
Please note that the event is created with pain warriors in mind. There will be numerous breaks for rest and stretching. In addition, attendees are encouraged to bring any assistive devices or supports that will help make them comfortable, whether special pillows, chairs, braces, etc.
