CHARLESTON SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTER TALK


By Nikki Claiborne, Site Director


Please remember to check on your neighbors with the temperatures getting so high!!


Aug 15 th , Patty Clark from UAMS came to the Charleston Senior Center to give a Caregiver Meeting on Pain Relief. She talked about alternative methods of pain control. Here are a few methods she discussed:


1. Acupuncture


2. Aromatherapy


3. Exercise.


Did you know that exercise induces release of endorphins, which help decrease our perception of pain? Endorphins can also act as a sedative that can help relax the body.
