Living with neuropathic pain brings many challenges including changes in function, sleep, mood, and quality of life. While exciting basic science work is being carried out, developing effective new medical treatments for neuropathic pain has been challenging for several important reasons. This interactive presentation will discuss practical self-management strategies (and the rationale behind these practices) for managing neuropathic pain, fostering hope, and living a meaningful life.

Exercise yields many benefits for chronic pain. Image source: Dr. Victoria McArthur

Dr. Vic has a passion for exercise, mostly the kind that is used for rehabilitation of muscle injuries, not the heavy weightlifting, crazy 6 days a week kind! Dr. Vic works with many seniors with the GLA:D program for knee and hip arthritis and chronic pain. Exercise has always been something humans do – now more than ever! But why is it such a trending topic? What are the actual benefits of movement and where does one even start? Let’s talk about that!
