Upcoming local Move with Ease courses to help with chronic pain

ARKADELPHIA — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends exercise regimens as a treatment for chronic pain. The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture in Clark County is offering a restorative movements class, Move with Ease, to help adults with chronic pain improve flexibility, increase joint mobility, and practice deep breathing.

This 12-session program is structured to provide a safe and low impact physical activity option for individuals with chronic pain. Sessions will include training on low-impact, restorative movements to aid in chronic pain management. Information on nutrition, overall wellness, and self-reflection will be implemented as well. Previous participants commenting on the Move with Ease program have said, “This class is great! Get in if you can before it fills up!”

Starting Feb. 6, the 1.5-hour sessions will commence twice weekly at 9 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at the EHC Outback Kitchen on the Clark County Fairgrounds. The class will be instructed by JoAnn Vann, County Extension Agent, who has been trained to lead the program.

To participate in the program, you must be 18 years or older. Space is limited, so sign up now by contacting the Cooperative Extension Office at 870-246-2281 at 640 S 6th St. in Arkadelphia or by email at jvann@uada.edu by the registration deadline February 1st.
