Chronic Pain

http://www.rqhealth.ca/department/health-promotion/livewell-with-chronic-pain-and-livewell-with-chronic-conditions-programsThe LiveWell with Chronic Pain Program is a peer-led, community based, self-management program to help adults who are experiencing a wide range of chronic pain conditions including:

  • Repetitive strain injuries or whiplash injuries
  • Persistent headaches
  • Chronic musculoskeletal pain (such as neck, shoulder, back pain)
  • Chronic regional pain or pelvic pain
  • Fibromyalgia or neuralgias
  • Neuropathic pain (often caused by trauma)
  • Post-stroke or central pain

This program is currently offered in four health regions in Saskatchewan – Regina Qu’Appelle, Saskatoon, Prairie North and Kelsey Trail – as part of the provincial LiveWell with Chronic Conditions Program.
