Tame the beast

Really lovely video here explaining how modern pain science has changed the way we think about pain, especially persistent (chronic) pain.  

Prof. Lorimer Moseley explains that the way we actually think about pain does change our experience of it, and this gives exciting possibilities for sufferers.


Pain Science

Paul Ingraham, a former massage therapist in Vancouver turned to science writing in 2010. His website is absolutely vast and he has written about a great many musculoskeletal pains and really looked hard at the evidence relating to many available therapies. Paul’s contribution in assimilating huge amounts of research into readable essays is considerable.

When I first became suspicious that my massage training may have been seriously flawed, this was an excellent goto resource, and one I still refer to often.

It is written simply enough for anyone to read and heavily referenced for professionals. The essays are long, very long, but well worth the effort.


Pain Toolkit

The pain toolkit was created by Pete Moore, a patient with persistent pain. Pete does talks for professional healthcare providers giving valuable patent-perspective insight.

I’ve met Pete, absolutely top bloke! His practical and helpful booklets are available to buy online.


PAIN-ED group

The PAIN-ED group are an international group of multidisciplinary clinical researchers attempting to translate scientific evidence about pain to both the public and health professionals.
