The WellSpan Spotlight

Chronic Pain Management - Ephrata (Virtually)

Event Image


Is chronic pain holding you back from living the life you want to live? Are you looking for ways to manage your pain in addition to medications? There are many non-medication tools that people can learn and use to significantly lessen their suffering associated with chronic pain. WellSpan Philhaven offers groups designed to help individuals learn ways to train their minds and bodies to reduce stress so they can do more of the things they want to do. In-home exercises are also provided. In addition to learning CBT techniques for pain management, members of the group will have an opportunity to connect with others whose lives have also been significantly impacted by their medical conditions.   Group sessions will focus on: 

  • Learning tools to manage chronic pain 
  • Support with disease adjustment 
  • Practicing new skills and techniques in session 
  • Providing a safe and friendly environment to discuss or process individual experiences of pain and the use of pain management coping skills 

Current Philhaven patients should talk to their provider. For new Philhaven patients, please call (717) 279-2760 or (800) 459-7497.
