Are you a healthcare provider or someone living with pain? Get Trained in Pain Science


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

Supporting people with pain means bridging the gap between medicine + psychology, brain + body, through better education and care.
