Everyone has pain at some point in life. Some of us deal with cornice pain for years. Pain can be complicated, but there are some simple tools that can help relieve pain. Research shows that understanding how pain works can help us begin to get out of pain.

Come learn small steps you can take to reduce and manage pain without drugs or surgery with Maggie Downie, author of Keep Moving: Take Steps to Relieve Pain & Improve Your Life.

Sponsored by a partnership between Berlin-Peck Memorial Library, Wethersfield Library, Lucy Robbins Welles Library and Cora Belden Library.
