It’s no secret that PAIN can play a major role in the lives of many CMT patients.
Despite its prevalence there is still little guidance on how families can identify and address the wide spectrum of pain our community continues to experience.
HNF aims to help close this gap with a new CMT-Connect Webinar Pain Series. Each episode will focus on a particular type of pain, its common causes, available treatments and future treatments on the horizon. Patient panelists and practicing experts will share their extensive knowledge and personal experiences via interactive presentations and discussions on Zoom.
Types of pain discussed will include, but are not limited to:
- Orthopedic / Skeletal
- Nerve Pain
- Muscle Cramping
- Emotional Pain
“Pain is a multi-faceted topic and must be broken down into smaller, digestible pieces if we’re going to successfully identify and treat it appropriately. No one knows your pain better than you… so, the better you are at recognizing its cause and communicating about it to others, the better your chances are of treating it”. – Estela Lugo, CMT-Connect Moderator
PART 1: “Does My Pain Mean I Need Surgery,” featuring CMT Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Wayne Berberian aired this month and can be viewed on the HNF YouTube Channel.
Stay tuned for Part 2 airing in 2021! *Date TBD
