Chronic pain is at epidemic levels in Canada with one out of five people reporting that they live with pain. Chronic Pain is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a disease in its own right. It's not "just" an ache. It needs to be taken seriously. You need to take it seriously! And you have the power to overcome your pain- you just need to choose the path that works for you.

There are several pathways you can take to overcome your pain, and through this event we aim to connect you with all the various options so you can learn more, ask questions, before you find the right fit for yourself.
A Key Note By Anne Klausner
CEO, Exercise with Care
Anne Klausner is passionate about changing the way we think about chronic pain and balance.
Exercise with Care is unique in the field of personal training because of Anne’s education in the neurology of movement. As an Exercise Therapy Specialist Anne creates programs tailored to each individual. Past injuries, surgeries and life experiences all affect the way you move and feel today. Neurology based exercises are extremely effective at reducing pain and increasing strength and balance.
In 2016, Anne Klausner founded Exercise with Care in order to spread her vision of health and wellbeing in the community by combining her experience in the field of rehabilitation with the skill of a personal trainer and knowledge of neurology. Programs include daily drills to keep you progressing towards your goals. After all, exercise is about feeling better every day, not just on “gym days”
As a certified Exercise Therapy Specialist Anne works with individuals of all ages to improve their quality of life.
