Pain Management with Donna Piercy – Part 1

Donna Piercy spoke at the CNA September 2017 meeting. This is still one of our favorites!

Quote by Donna Piercy "I'd rather have a vet for a doctor, they know more about chronic pain.

A chronic pain sufferer herself, she provides helpful insights into the importance of self-management and ways exercise and other self care activities can help both the mind and body when dealing with chronic pain.
