It's important to note that your pain will still be there at the end of the digital Pain Management Programme. PMPs are not a curative treatment. However, Pathway through Pain will teach you how to effectively manage your persistent pain, so that although the pain is still there you will have more confidence to manage it on a daily basis, feel emotionally stronger and more able to cope psychologically.
To access this digital programme, you will first have a consultation with a Circle clinician so you can be assessed for the suitability for the programme. This can be either a face to face or telephone appointment. If the clinician feels you are suitable for the programme, they will ask for your email address to send you a link to register onto the toolkit. Once you have registered with the program you retain life-time access.
