Lincolnshire Pain Café
As part of our ongoing work to support people in Lincolnshire experiencing long term persistent pain, Lincolnshire’s NHS has launched a new virtual pain café.
There will be 10 virtual events throughout the year that people can join from the comfort of their own home and join others experiencing similar persistent pain, to learn new techniques, share experiences and look at alternatives to medication.
The sessions take place once a month on a Wednesday, over the course of 12months and will be around 20 mins of teaching. There will also be some face-to-face sessions hosted in various locations across the county and more details will follow once confirmed.
The sessions will follow the 10 steps of the nationally recognised Live Well with Pain programme, with time to ask questions and share experiences where people feel comfortable.
These are open to anyone experiencing persistent pain and people can be an active participant, or sit with camera off and just listen, whatever they prefer.
Whilst the sessions have already started people can join at any time. email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and dates.
Session 4 taking place on 20th March from 12.30pm will look at Setting Goals and Getting Active. Hosted by Grainne Daniels, a specialist physiotherapist in Pain Management. Teaching covers the role of the brain in how we experience pain and how this can inform our approach to pain management.
These are group activities and by registering and attending the session people should be willing to share information provided at registration or during the session with all participants. These are not one to one confidential appointments and more a friendly and supportive gathering where people come together to share experiences and get practical tips for managing pain in daily life. The focus is on helping each other and finding ways to live a fulfilling life even with ongoing pain.
