Welcome to the Pain Toolkit

For people who live with persistent pain

A persistent pain problem can be difficult to understand and manage on an everyday basis. This Pain Toolkit website has been developed from the Pain Toolkit, a simple information booklet that provides you with handy tips and skills to support you along the way to managing your pain.

It is not meant to be the last word in pain self-management but a handy guide to help you get started - all you need to be is willing to read and use it and take on board some of the suggestions.

I found the ‘pacing’ tool most effective for me. I was one of those people who always did an activity until the pain became too excruciating and only then I would stop. Now that I pace my activities, I feel I can do more without the pain increasing. Keeping a pain diary also helped me to see where I was doing too much.

These tools have helped many people and could also help you too!

Pete Moore, who has persistent pain, asthma and osteoarthritis, has put these tools together with the help of friends, family and health care professionals - special acknowledgement to Bradford Pain Rehabilitation Programme team & NHS Kirklees PCT.

The Pain Toolkit concept originated back in 2002 when Pete Moore was writing a self management article for pain health care professionals in Europe. Living with pain himself, he recognised while writing his article, that he had developed a toolkit of pain management skills to enable himself to become an active self manager and to lead a better life.
