The American Society of Pain Educators (ASPE) announces the launch of an educational Webcast series on chronic pain with leading health specialists and Olympic Games gold medalist and chronic pain sufferer, Nikki Stone. The first in the three-part series, "Keep Moving! Persistent Chronic Pain Doesn't Have to Hold You Back" is available today at http://www.painawareness.org.
The first Webcast addresses the benefits of exercise for individuals with chronic pain and provides practical tips by leading chronic pain expert, Dr. Warren A. Katz, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Associate of the Rothman Institute. The importance of exercise for people with persistent chronic pain was underscored in the recent PRICARA® Chronic Pain Barometer online survey of 500 American chronic pain sufferers 18 years or older, which evaluated the impact of chronic pain on exercise, diet, relationships and intimacy. In addition, lack of exercise was identified as one of the top three problems affecting the lives of people with chronic pain, while over 40 percent reported that exercise helped manage their pain, in addition to other tools.
