Learn more about your pain
and how to manage it.

Pain? We believe you, and you’re not alone!

Scientists have learnt a lot more about how pain works over the past 50 years. This new research can have game-changing results for people affected by long-term pain.

The information below can help you get to grips with the latest (often surprising) science of pain, so you can manage your pain better.

People who watched the webinar said:

“I really benefited from this. It has boosted my confidence in the hope that I will be able to eventually do the activities I want to do.”

“Having the two people with experience of dealing with and ‘flipping’ their own pain was the icing on the cake, showing how this worked for real people!”
