Resources for Medical Information about Chronic Pain

Chaplains On Hand® is not a site that provides medical information. There are many excellent sites that do provide medical information and advice about living with chronic pain. Two are:

  • The Pain Action Alliance to Implement a National Strategy (PAINS) is an alliance of leaders working in professional societies, patient advocacy organizations, policy groups, people with pain, payers, and the private sector working together toward a common vision and mission. On their website you will find a section on Understand Pain that provides numerous resources including Pain 101, Kinds of Pain, and Your Right to Pain Management, Treatment Options, and a Glossary of Terms.
  • The American Chronic Pain Association, as part of their mission, facilitates peer support and education for individuals with chronic pain and their families so that these individuals may live more fully in spite of their pain. There you will find Conditions A to Z information, Medications and Treatments, and Pain Management Tools.
