My Live Well with Pain has been created by a group of clinicians who specialise in working with people with persistent pain.
After many years of working with people with pain, they have recognised that one of the keys to living well with pain is self-management.
When people self-manage their pain, their quality of life improves. Eventually it stops dominating their day and they begin to get more out of life. Managing your pain is not automatic – but it is something that can be learnt. That’s where this website comes in.
My Live Well with Pain is a collection of resources that are designed to help you learn the skills you need to become an effective self-manager of your pain. They are full of tried and tested ideas and methods – many suggested by people who are themselves living well despite their pain.
By using the resources in this website – and with support from your GP or pain specialist – you will be able to learn how to do this too. They aren’t an instant fix. Learning to self-manage pain is a journey and takes time.
The resources in this site are simply designed to help you your way. Use them wisely – and share what you learn with your pain specialist, and other supportive people around you. They’ll be able to give you more encouragement, so that your journey is a successful one and you can truly live well with pain. Good luck!
