Nurses Joan Altman and Jennifer Taglich of the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) will discuss pain and provide methods for treating chronic pain, focusing on both medical and non-medical interventions. Pain measurement and types, as well as heat, ice, massage, acupuncture and other non-medical modalities, will be part of the discussion. Coping strategies and ways we think about and react to pain will be explored, as will the roles sleep and activity play. The speakers will lead a short meditation to promote relaxation which can decrease pain.
