Are we done with New Year’s resolutions yet? No? Here’s an easy one: “I’d like to not hurt as much in 2013.” That’s a no brainer, right? Sure.
Humboldtians who live with chronic pain -- whether dealing with long-term health issues like diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, chronic pain, etc. -- have a no cost way to potentially ease their torment. Aligning Forces Humboldt will be launching a bunch of free, six-week-long Our Pathways to Health workshops across the county. The classes, which aren't specific to any one condition, provide attendees tips to self-manage their pain.
