New program in Niagara focuses on chronic pain

Written by: Michelle Nicols

Chronic pain caused by disease or injury can have a devastating physical and emotional toll. With strategies to manage pain, however, sufferers’ quality of life may improve. Last fall, Bayshore Therapy & Rehab launched a six-week outpatient program in Ontario’s Niagara region for people with chronic pain. “It went extremely well,” says Katie Schinkel, Director of Therapy & Rehabilitation. “People felt they benefited from working with the facilitators, and particularly from the group dynamic – learning strategies from others with chronic pain.”

The program also focused on making use of community resources. As a result, says Schinkel, “People had tools and strategies they could apply to everyday life, making the transition easier.”
