Beth Israel's Department of Pain Medicine and Palliative Care is offering
therapy programs (.pdf) for people who suffer from chronic back pain or
osteoarthritis. Our therapists will help you learn new skills--such
as relaxation exercises and new ways of thinking--that can reduce the
stress of living with chronic pain.
The groups are open to all persons with chronic pain. Family members
are invited to participate.
