The LiveWell with Chronic Pain Program is a peer-led, community based, self-management program to help adults who are experiencing a wide range of chronic pain conditions including:

  • Repetitive strain injuries or whiplash injuries
  • Persistent headaches
  • Chronic musculoskeletal pain (such as neck, shoulder, back pain)
  • Chronic regional pain or pelvic pain
  • Fibromyalgia or neuralgias
  • Neuropathic pain (often caused by trauma)
  • Post-stroke or central pain
  • Crohn’s disease or irritable bowel syndrome
  • Severe muscular pain due to conditions such as multiple sclerosis
  • Postsurgical pain lasting longer than six months

This program is currently offered in four health regions in Saskatchewan – Regina Qu’Appelle, Saskatoon, Prairie North and Kelsey Trail – as part of the provincial LiveWell with Chronic Conditions Program. The program has been adopted from the Stanford Self-Management Program developed for people who have a primary or secondary diagnosis of chronic pain.

You can refer yourself to the program or you can be referred by your health care provider, family members, or support persons.
