Changing
Pain
Medicine.

Most medical treatments for chronic pain fail. That’s because pain isn't a purely medical issue – it's also cognitive, emotional and contextual.

This means that effective treatments must target the brain in addition to the body.
Rachel Zoffness Smiling

Effectively supporting people with pain means bridging the gap between medicine and psychology, body and mind, through better education and care.
