On Friday 29th April at 1:30pm Liverpool Pain Relief Foundation will be hosting an interesting event which is currently touring the region.
Pain, the Brain and a Little Bit of Magic is an empowering performance talk which takes alook inside the brain, exploring how we feel pain, how pain is signalled in the body and how we develop chronic conditions. Based on pioneering research, ‘Pain, the Brain and a Little Bit of Magic’ offers an optimistic message of how chronic pain may be better understood and treated.
Pain, the Brain and a Little bit of Magic is a performance for chronic pain sufferers and the people who support them, medical professionals and absolutely anybody who wants to know more about what makes the brain tick.
“When people are more informed about their condition they are able to develop coping mechanisms to deal with it on a daily basis. Pain, the brain and a little bit of magic gives patients and medical professionals an insight into the nature of pain and a greater awareness of its effects on people’s everyday lives.” – Val Derbyshire – Salford Fibromyalgia Support Group
