HANDI Highlights: Pain Management Resources
The holiday season is quickly approaching, and while it brings family and friends together, it is also often a frenetic time of “festive prepping,” with extra cooking, cleaning, shopping and traveling to loved ones. While these are often key ingredients to a wonderful family gathering, it is important to remember not to let self-care be lost in shuffle. As we all know pain, unfortunately, does not take a holiday. HANDI, NHF’s information resource center, would like to highlight some resources to help you better manage pain and better enjoy the season!
