Free registration for consumers to customise their pain page which receives recommended lessons, articles and tools that match their pain profile.
This website is of a medium to high level in its complexity. It encourages the consumer to have their own (free) login/username and password. Questionnaires are used to tailor pain information specific to the user. This is therefore an excellent interactive tool for the customer to develop their own management plan by utilising the resources, pain monitoring programs and information available.
The site does not support external advertising, nor does it allow users to directly post content. All resources are referenced to the appropriate professional health organisations.
