The pain toolbox: putting together your own person pain relief toolkit

  • Are you living in constant pain?
  • Do you feel you cannot do as much as before, because of your pain?
  • Is your pain making you feel frustrated or stressed or anxious?

If you’ve answered “Yes” to these questions, then you may find this illustrated toolkit very useful! This widely accepted and widely used toolkit was developed by an author who himself lived in constant pain.

All of the individual tools have been discussed extensively on this site.

But the most important aspect of a toolkit is actually following it! In order to do that, you could copy these points and save it on your mobile. Or, print this page and pin it up on your fridge or office board to remind you about it.
