Changing how people understand pain in rural and regional communities in Australia

1 in 5 Australians lives with Persisting Pain.

Less than 10% get the help they need to recover.

We want to change how people understand pain in rural and regional communities in Australia.

We're providing support to local health professionals to become pain experts and spread the word in their community, and we'll mentor and support them to do that.

Our Goals

Pain Revolution is a movement charged with changing how people understand pain in rural and regional communities in Australia.

We’re providing support to local health professionals to become pain experts and spread the word in their community, and we’ll mentor and support them to do that.

Chronic pain is a huge burden that we can do something about, we know enough now about recovery and we can do something about it if we flip the way we think about and understand pain with a whole of community approach.

There are no quick fixes that we know about for pain, but the recovery journey is back on the table, and we’re supporting people all over Australia to take steps towards living well again.

How big is your protective buffer (and are you too well protected?)

We often think of pain as an alarm signalling damage to the body.

Injury. Boom! Pain…simple, right?

Maybe not. We have all felt pain at times where there is no injury – this isn’t some nervous system quirk we only observe in the lab. Have you ever been out in the cold and banged your knuckles? Or stubbed a toe and momentarily lost the ability to walk or use clean language? Or even the other way around – have you ever noticed bruises or cuts that you don’t recall receiving?

In the clinic, we see many cases where people are suffering tremendously without clear or identifiable damage to their body. This may include widespread pain like fibromyalgia, headaches, or even a lot of back pain. If viewed from the notion that pain requires some kind of harm or lesion to the body, these people’s pain seems perplexing. They may have been told it’s ‘psychological’, all due to stress, or worse: implied that it’s all made up.
