Rethinking Pain Education

Chronic pain is increasing globally with 10-20% of the population reporting chronic or recurrent pain. However, chronic pain is often very difficult to treat. Given the rise in diagnostic imaging and rapidly evolving treatment options, it is worth considering why the number of individuals reporting chronic pain is increasing. In this course, we discuss pain science and offer practical strategies to use when teaching patients about pain, as well as advice to help them devise effective exercise programmes. With chronic pain on the increase, it is time to re-think pain education.
