WHAT IS CHRONIC PAIN? AND HOW BEST TO MANAGE IT!  Join us to discuss how to manage chronic pain.

This event is sponsored by RWJBarnabas Health, and is free and open to the public.  Registration is does not require a Sayreville Library card number.

In its most benign form, pain warns us that something isn't quite right, that we should take medicine or see a doctor.  At its worst, pain robs us of our productivity, our wellbeing, and, for many suffering from extended illness, our very lives.

Pain is a complex perception that differs enormously among individual patients, even those who appear to have identical injuries or illnesses.

Chronic pain persists over a longer peiod of time than acute pain and is resistant to most medical treatments.  It can, and often does, cause severe problems for patients.  It can be made much worse by environmental and psychological factors.
