2nd “Painday” in Vienna

No, it is not a convention for S&M-lovers nor a death metal music festival, though both might be reason to visit the event: the second Viennese “Schmerztag” (transl. painday) will be held on 2nd of March in the Rathaus.


Presentations and talks will touch all kinds of pains, preventions and reliefs of pain, from fear of the dentist to urology and that tick in the knee you feel after three hours of jogging in the Prater. According to some figures almost two out of five people in Vienna live with some chronic pains, so that should make for a big crowd. Various health care services are being offered for free, like Hara-Shiatsu, lung function testing and advisories on several medical issues.
