Health Days by HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital

Take Charge of your Pain: Safer pain management with physical therapy

Physical therapy programs, like those available through HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Outpatient Therapy, address the overuse of opioids by patients through expanded pain therapy programs and education about the benefits of therapy and the limitations of opioids. Research shows understanding pain through education and exercise are two of the most effective treatments. The public is invited to learn how to effectively manage pain, understand the benefits of physical therapy as well as the side effects of opioid use for pain. The event is free to attend but registration is required.
