The Pain and Stress Management Program was developed by HSS in response to the nationwide opioid crisis. Its goal is to educate patients about complementary and integrative health treatments for coping with chronic pain and pain-related stress. We offer educational programs for our local community, the public, and HSS patients which incorporate self-management skills and proven strategies to help reduce pain and stress and improve quality of life.
The Pain and Stress Management program offers programs designed for patients of the HSS Ambulatory Care Center orthopedic and rheumatology clinics. Please reach out to your social worker at HSS to register for these programs:
