Resources for Health Professionals
A collection of useful information to help professionals work with people in pain
Explain Pain Supercharged
Like Explain Pain, only "supercharged" for clinicians
This book is jam-packed with everything you need to provide effective, memorable, evidence-based, individualised pain education and treatment.
"One theme that has emerged time and time again is the need for another resource... Many have pleaded in frustration for something that takes them beyond Explain Pain but doesn’t put them to sleep or intimidate the whoopsies out of them. So here it is, Explain Pain Supercharged."
Moseley & Butler, 2017
