If you live in or near the Charlotte NC area, there is a fantastic pain program at Presby Rehabilitation Center. It takes quite a bit of committment to complete it. It is 4 days per week 8am-12pm. Consists of physical therapy, informational session and group therapy sessions. Very good physical therapists and a psychologist on staff. I just completed this program and highly recommend it. It helped with my range of motion, strength and gave me a lot of good coping skills. I was actually able to reduce the pain from a recent flare up ! It's not a cure, not medication based and not easy, but very helpful....If you are interested just post a reply for details.
