- PainStory – On this site, you can learn about different aspects of pain in more detail, including the science behind pain, and how to control it.
- PBS: The Painful Truth – What happens when lives are dramatically torn apart by chronic pain? The Painful Truth takes us behind the headlines of addiction and beyond the controversies of the war on opioids – and provides an intimate view of patients’ frustrations, setbacks, and goals as they deal with chronic pain. We hear patients tell us their stories … and we understand the social barriers and prejudices they face.
- Pain News Network – Its reporters and columnists cover the latest research, regulations and treatments for chronic pain, as well as the many social and financial challenges faced by pain sufferers during what is often a lifetime illness.
- How to Talk to Kids about Their Pain – A wide-ranging summary of how to talk to children about pain, from the Hospital for Sick Kids.
- Understanding Pain in Less than 5 Minutes, and What to Do about It! – A great, easy-to-follow video about chronic pain. It helps you understand what current research has been saying about chronic pain – that it’s not a joint or muscle problem, but a ‘re-wiring’ of the brain’s perception of itself. In other words, the brain has become more sensitive than before.
