NEW – printed booklets for practitioners

We are often asked by practitioners whether it’s possible to buy printed versions of our publications for them to use in their work. We are pleased to announce that we can now offer multiple copies of some of our most popular booklets (minimum order 50 copies). Visit our printed resources page to find out more.

How do our resources work?

More than a third of the population live with persistent pain. It is a long term condition and cannot be ‘fixed or cured’. Traditional medical treatments such as pain medicines are now recognised as having only limited value.
Instead, a different way of living with persistent pain is growing in influence. It’s called a ‘self-management’ approach.

Who is behind Live Well with Pain?

Live Well with Pain is run by an alliance of healthcare professionals working in pain management and people with lived experience of persistent pain.
They share a passionate belief in the power of self-management to improve life for people with pain.
By combining their professional and personal experience they have developed a range of self-management resources that have been tried and tested over many years.
They have built this website to share these resources with others.
