Navigator Tool

Chronic pain impacts more than just the body. We know that for people living with pain, raising concerns about wider aspects of health in appointments with their health-care professional is not always easy and their concerns and worries do not always feel relevant. Doctors can also find it difficult to introduce wider issues around pain during routine appointments. Our research (which you can read here) shows how exploring wider aspects of pain can benefit people’s ability to self-manage their pain


Our leaflets are free to download. If you would like to order printed leaflets for individual use – or bulk order leaflets for distribution in clinics, GP’s surgeries and community groups – please add to your basket and checkout free of charge.


Our radio programme Airing Pain brings together people with chronic pain and top specialists to talk about the resources which can help.

Pain Concern produces a new Airing Pain programme once a month, which you can hear on Tuesday and Sunday evenings at 8pm via Able Radio. Podcasts are then available to listen to on demand via our website. You can subscribe to the Airing Pain podcast on Spotify, iTunes and through most podcast apps.

Transcripts are now available for most of the programmes.

Pain Matters

Pain Matters, the magazine for people living with chronic pain, contains news, features and comment on pain management, research into treatments and personal experiences of living with pain.


We have produced a range of videos related to Self Management, including our series about the Breaking Barriers research project and the Self-Management Navigator Tool that resulted from the research.
