About the event

Injury and pain often prompt us to be more curious about how our body works and seek help. But pain can be a formidable obstacle to recovery when it overrides our curiosity and leads us down a road of reduced activity, restricted movement, and stress – and more pain. How can we escape the cycle?  We learn more, and practice new ideas.
