What you'll learn

Are you one of the 25% of people who suffer from chronic pain? Do you need more help in managing your pain?

Then this is the course for you.

Pain is the most common reason that people go to the doctor. Your pain probably isn't visible. You might be suffering in silence. You've likely tried all sorts of treatments - pain medication, physical therapy, acupuncture - to reduce your pain.

If you're still suffering, we're here to help you learn evidence-based tools and techniques to manage your pain.

In this course, we cover:

  • The difference between acute and chronic pain, and why chronic pain requires a specific and unique management plan
  • Why your pain continues even when your original injury or illness has "gone away"
  • Evidence-based tools and techniques you can use daily and immediately - broken down into the biological, psychological and social spheres of your life
  • How you can set realistic goals for the management of your pain
  • How you can best pace your daily activities to build sustainable improvements in your life
  • How you can build the best support team around you, and how you can make best use of the wide array of resources for those with chronic pain

You'll finish this highly interactive, two-hour course with clear goals specific to your pain and an evidence-base plan on how best to manage your pain.
