If you’re in pain and ready to make a change, this program is for you. This may include people who are dealing with arthritis, old injuries, degenerative changes, pain conditions, and/or are frustrated, scared, or confused about their pain. This pain program is comprehensive, individualized, skilled physical therapy in a group setting. It combines the latest research of three approaches to pain: movement, mindfulness, and pain science education. This is an 8-week program consisting of sessions 2x/week. Contact your doctor about a referral to physical therapy concerning your pain. After talking to your doctor, call 541-451-7125 to set up an evaluation with a physical therapist specializing in pain to determine if this class series is right for you.

Movement: Individualized gentle movement programs may include aspects of yoga, tai chi, balance, stretching, strengthening, dancing, walking, and/or light hiking. Each movement or activity is specialized for the individual. There is a focus on goal setting and formulating home exercise programs.

Mindfulness: This helps us to get back in tune with our bodies to know when it is safe to challenge the body and when it is best slow down. It also helps to calm the body’s nervous system to decrease pain.

Pain Science: Participants will learn about what pain means, the purpose of pain, the nervous system, why pain persists, and practical daily strategies to decrease pain overall to meet their goals and increase quality of life.
