Specialized chronic pain support groups

Within the chronic pain community, specific populations face unique challenges as they navigate their or their loved ones’ health conditions. Pain Connection currently provides tailored chronic pain support groups for veterans and active military, caregivers, and LGBTQ+ individuals. We hope to continue to expand the special populations served.
