Why are we creating free online pain education?
Chronic pain is a big problem, affecting about 1 out of 5 people. Over the last 10 years there have been many important discoveries that help explain what causes chronic pain, as well as new research about which treatment approaches are most effective. Sadly, many of these discoveries sit quietly in science journals, inaccessible to the average patient. We believe that pain patients throughout the world deserve access to accurate and up to date information about pain rehabilitation, and that is the mission of our organization.
Does this site replace the need for a doctor or therapist?
No! This course is meant to be used in addition to the care you get from your medical team. Before applying anything you learn from this course, please check with your personal health care team to make sure it is safe and relevant for your individual situation.
How do you use this course?
The course is free, and is viewed entirely online. We recommend you view it slowly, in small sections. This allows time to review and apply the material.

We are extremely appreciative to a generous group of clinicians and community members who have volunteered their time and talent to make Retrain Pain accessible to a global audience.
