CPH's Fibromyalgia/EDS Support Group Meets May 7, 2019
Potsdam, NY—Canton-Potsdam Hospital's Fibromyalgia/Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Support Group will meet on Tuesday, May 7, 6:30-7:30 pm, 59 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Clarkson Hall, Potsdam. Attendees may park in "Patient Parking" at the front of Clarkson Hall.
Canton-Potsdam Hospital's Occupational Therapist Claire Richardson will speak on "Strategies for Managing Brain-Fog." Fibromyalgia, EDS, POTS and MCAS all commonly result in "brain-fog," or difficulty concentrating, remembering, and thinking clearly. For some people, brain-fog can be even more disabling than pain. Through discussion of specific daily challenges, Ms. Richardson will present various strategies that can be implemented to help manage brain-fog.
Claire Richardson, OT, specializes in neurologic conditions that affect cognition and thinking skills, and holds certifications in concussion recovery and Parkinson's disease.
All those who manage chronic pain are welcome to attend and share their challenges and successes. Family and friends are welcome as well.
Group facilitator Leslie Russek, PT, DPT, PhD, OCS, specializes in chronic pain management at Canton-Potsdam Hospital and is an Associate Professor in Clarkson University's Physical Therapy Department.
