Pain Matters contains news, features and comment on pain management, research into treatments and personal experiences of living with pain.

We explore the self-management techniques that can help you to get your life back on track: from mindfulness to TENS machines.

We share the inspiring personal stories of people living with chronic pain conditions who have found practical ways of coping.

We look in-depth at the issues raised on our Airing Pain radio show in interviews with people living in pain and top experts from around the world.

We review books and other resources on these topics and our ‘In your own words’ page provides space for your views and comments.
