Fight Fatigue & Pain – Free Event, Sat 28th Jan.

People who are experiencing exhaustion and chronic pain are invited to a free drop-in event on Saturday 28th January.

Between 12pm and 2pm anyone is welcome to find out more about Fighting Fatigue & Pain, a project run by Letchworth charity Herts MS Therapy Centre.

Extreme fatigue and chronic pain can result from many conditions, including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and ME – and many others.

The Herts MS Therapy Centre in Letchworth helps anyone with a long term condition, not just Multiple Sclerosis. It offers Physiotherapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, APS Pain Reduction Therapy and Functional Rehabilitation exercise and fitness training to help people improve their quality of life. Free taster sessions are available on 28th January.

Brian H said: “I did the six week APS Pain Reduction Programme and it worked for me.  I have had pain free mobility for the first time in nine months. I finished 3 weeks ago and so far I am still pain free, despite moving furniture last week! “

Oxygen Therapy helps some people recover faster after injury, surgery and cancer treatments. It’s also great for increasing energy. Some people find it reduces pain, especially people with Fibromyalgia. On 28th January you can see Oxygen Therapy in action – or try it for free!

Rachel B says: “Without my Oxygen Treatment in Letchworth I would still be in agony from Fibromyalgia and probably jobless and depressed.  I can’t even begin to explain what a difference it has made for me.”

Nicki H has MS. She adds: “Also, it’s great to meet other people who have an idea of what you’re going through. It’s nice to have a chat with other people at the Centre.”

Other organisation will also be at the event:

Coloplast – offering products and services that make life easier for people with very personal and private medical conditions.

British Polio Fellowship – helping, supporting and empowering approximately 120,000 people in the UK living with the late effects of Polio and Post Polio Syndrome, (PPS).

Fibromyalgia Action UK – providing information and support to people with Fibromyalgia and their families.

Personal Cooling Clothing – cooling body wear to help with heat intolerance

Mark Boscher, the Chief Executive of Herts MS Therapy Centre added: “If you, or someone you know, lives with long term pain or fatigue – from any condition – maybe we can help them to gain more energy and feel less pain. Please come on Saturday 28th January.”
