Scottsdale, AZ. (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
August 14th, 2012 - - September is Chronic Pain Awareness Month – a time to work together in raising awareness about the affects chronic pain has on those who suffer from it. In honor of Chronic Pain Awareness Month, Arizona Pain Specialists (arizonapain.com), the premier pain center in Phoenix, AZ, will be hosting a series of free “Chronic Pain Awareness” expos that will be open to the public. These events will take place at the three Arizona Pain Specialists Clinic Locations: Sept. 8th at the Glendale clinic, September 15th at the Chandler clinic, and September 29th at the Scottsdale clinic. All events will go from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and will be for patients as well as caregivers, to learn about various ways to better manage pain and their overall health.
The events will highlight a variety of chronic pain topics like alternative therapies, interventional treatments, mental health, cutting edge studies, and much more. Various health and wellness vendors will provide attendees with some great information regarding medication management, nutrition, rehabilitation, free product samples, etc. Representatives from local support groups will also be available for patients and caregivers to talk to.
“Our message is simple,” says Patti Koblewski, a patient Advocate and Educator who is helping coordinate the expos. “If you are one of the many people suffering from chronic pain in the surrounding Phoenix areas, you are not alone, there are various treatment options besides pain pills, and there are doctors who are willing to listen and work with you to help you find the best combination of treatments to successfully manage your pain."
According to the American Academy of Pain Medicine, over 100 million Americans in the U.S. suffer from Chronic Pain. Oftentimes, for chronic pain patients, it can be overwhelming for patients to know where to start in seeking help. Through these free outreach events, Arizona Pain Specialists hopes to provide educational resources for people, so that they can begin finding the help they need right here in their own community.
“Part of our obligation to our local communities is to support patient education and awareness programs,” says Joe Carlon, Arizona Pain Specialists CEO. “We are proud to be opening our doors to the Phoenix community and offering patients and their families an opportunity to learn about the vast resources available to help those who suffer from chronic pain.”
