HALLOWELL — Spectrum Generations will offer a six-week chronic pain workshop beginning on Friday, May 24, from 9 to 11:30 a.m., at the William S. Cohen Community Center.

This workshop is for adults who have long-term or chronic pain lasting longer than three to six months, or beyond the normal healing time for an injury, who want to learn ways to better manage their pain and address health concerns.

Participants will learn appropriate exercises for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, endurance, techniques for pacing activity and rest, how to evaluate new treatments, appropriate use of medications, as well as ways to deal with frustration, fatigue, poor sleep, and isolation, according to a news release from Spectrum Generations.

A donation of $20 for the whole series is suggested. Scholarships are available. For more information or to register, call Tina DeRaps at 620-1657.
