Cullman Regional hosting Water Therapy for Chronic Pain seminar Sept. 20

CULLMAN - Cullman Regional is hosting a Water Therapy for Chronic Pain seminar on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

One of the most debilitating conditions a person can endure is chronic pain, which is any type of pain lasting for more than six months. Chronic pain can occur in many different parts of the human body, and it often prevents sufferers from performing key functions in life such as work and social activity.

There are various treatments for chronic pain, but one of the most effective is aquatic therapy. When the body is submerged to the chest, 80 percent of the body’s weight is reduced from the equation. This allows a patient to retrain muscles and joints in a soothing setting where the body can heal faster and exercise more easily.

Join the Cullman Regional Therapy Services department as they give information on water therapy offered right here at Cullman Regional.

The Water Therapy for Chronic Pain seminar will be held on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Colonel Cullmann Room, located in Professional Office Building 2 on the Cullman Regional Campus (1912 Alabama Highway 157, Cullman, AL 35058).

The cost of this lunch and learn program is $5 for Healthy Life members and $8 for others. To reserve your spot, register online at www.cullmanregional.com or call 256-735-5600.
