• We are closing that gap.


    Revolution by revolution.





  • It's time for a Revolution
    in Chronic Pain Recovery

    We're getting the science of pain out of the clinic and into the community.
    We're cycling into rural communities, running community education events and providing ongoing help and support to professionals working with people in pain in rural and regional areas.


    "We need to engage with this massive problem in a new way, give people the resources to recover and find the best methods to prevent persisting pain"


    - Professor Lorimer Moseley

    A rider's eye view of the 2017 Pain Revolution Ride

  • Pain Revolution 2017

    The first Pain Revolution ride in April 2017 was led by some of Australia's leading pain scientists and clinicians. They took on their own physical challenge, riding their bikes through rural Australia. They stopped at regional centres en route to share the latest discoveries in pain science, and learn from clinicians and communities who are facing this massive health problem every day.

  • The Brain Bus

    Connecting communities with the cool science of Pain

    The Brain Bus is an opportunity for people to learn about pain, and the science behind it, in community locations along the Pain Revolution ride route. In 2017, Dr Tasha Stanton and Dr Dan Harvie drove the bus, and followed the ride to Ballarat, Lorne, Warrnambool, Mt Gambier and Murray Bridge. The Brain Bus gives people the opportunity to understand pain by experiencing some of the cool science that explains how and why we hurt, and some new ways we can think about the path to recovery.

  • Local Pain Educator Network

    Connecting local communities in pain together


    The Local Pain Educator Network is our ongoing program of education and support for professionals and people in pain in rural locations. It builds on the awareness raised by the Pain Revolution ride and the Brain Bus, to provide ongoing help to change the burdern of persisting pain in country areas.


    We're using a whole community approach to educate and empower local health providers and people in pain to re-think, re-engage and recover from persisting pain.
