REMOVING OBSTACLES

Join our pain care therapy groups.

Quality pain care does not have to come partnered with financial distress.

The strain chronic pain can place on a person — on their life, their family, their dreams — is immeasurable. And yet, it's estimated only 10% of pain sufferers ever receive access to effective pain care.

For years, our team have been searching for ways to make quality care more accessible to those who need it most. Our pain care therapy groups are our solution — and our way of giving back.

SOLVING FOR SOCIAL ISOLATION

The added value of group-based therapy.

Research shows social isolation reliably predicts poor recovery.

Studies performed on people living with persistent pain suggest social isolation is not only correlated with, but also causative of, increased pain and disability. Meanwhile, activities that encourage social engagement and interpersonal connection actually improve recovery rates and quality of life.

This makes social engagement a valuable therapeutic strategy for solving pain.

The Research: Social isolation and persistent pain.

"Our study provides evidence that the impact of pain is reduced in individuals who perceive a greater sense of inclusion from and engagement with others. This study enhances the understanding of how social factors affect pain and have implications for how the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions may be improved. Therapeutic interventions aimed at increasing social connection hold merit in reducing the impact of pain on engagement with activities."
