Elizabeth Reilly's Search for the Answer to Chronic Pain

  • 18 March 2015 7:30-8:45pm

After falling awkwardly on a country stile, Elizabeth Reilly suffered years of chronic pain in her groin, pelvis and back even though no specific injury could be identified. Frustrated by the lack of solutions offered her, Elizabeth decided to find her own answers and set about investigating a range of pain relief options.

Elizabeth will talk about her trawl through myriad treatments from the conventional options of physiotherapy and chiropractic manipulation to the little known options of Rolfing, myofascial release, prolotherapy and InterXtherapy.

Her book, Fighting Back: One Woman’s Search for the Answers to Chronic Pain is an engaging, human story told with humour.
