Organized by Alicia Gambetta, coordinator of the Mental Health and Well-being Project, we had the opportunity to learn about various ways to manage pain and how to prevent it.
Dr Andreia Negron, a specialist in pain management, provides her valuable services at the Three Boroughs Health Inclusion Team.
She explained to us in depth, a few necessary facts in order to understand pain and its relationship with stress. She did this through demonstrating a series of practical exercises, including the correct postures for sitting and lying down.
Dr Negron, who has spent many years dealing with physical and mental well-being and recovery of refugees and asylum seekers, has vast experience concerning the treatment of pain in its various forms; moreover, she does so with a large dose of love and understanding.
Thank you to everybody who has made such a valuable and educational workshop possible. I have found it more effective than traditional medications and more valuable because it’s not sold in a pharmacy, but given from the heart.
