CPH's Fibromyalgia Support Group Meets May 2, 2017

Potsdam, NY—Canton-Potsdam Hospital's Fibromyalgia Support Group will meet on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, 6:30 – 7:30 pm, 59 Main Street (Room 2003, Clarkson Hall), Potsdam.

Facilitator Dr. Leslie Russek will lead this month's discussion entitled "You want to exercise more, but it hurts too much!" Exercise is recommended as a key part of managing chronic pain, in general, and fibromyalgia, in particular. However, many people find that exercise is too painful to start or stick with. This session will explain the importance of exercise for pain management, the common reasons why people have trouble keeping to a regular exercise program, and ways to overcome those challenges.

The support group is held under the direction of Dr. Leslie Russek, PT, DPT, PhD, OCS, Associate Professor in Clarkson University's Physical Therapy Department and physical therapist specializing in chronic pain management at Canton-Potsdam Hospital. All are welcome to attend. For information, please contact Leslie Russek at lrussek@clarkson.edu.
