Find the Right Information about Persisting Pain
Most of what you’ll find on the internet about injuries and pain won’t help you recover.
There’s lots of conflicting information that’s difficult to navigate when you’re struggling with pain and need actionable and trustworthy guidance. You’ll find scary information about all of the damage that is happening inside your body. You’ll find sources trying to sell devices, supplements and other unproven quick-fixes that are not backed by an up-to-date scientific and medical understanding of pain.
Most people that need help don’t get the full story about what pain is and how you can get back to living well again.
