This website has been put together by hospital consultants, GPs, physiotherapists, people living with persistent pain, volunteer organisations, and clinicians with a special interest in managing persistent pain.
The site represents their agreed approach to sharing knowledge and skills for people living with persistent pain and takes into account the latest national and international best practice guidelines on pain management.
It should be used in conjunction with advice given to you by your GP, physiotherapist or pain specialist.
The website has been designed as a one-stop advice site for people in Sheffield to find out about persistent pain, how to manage it and what to do to prevent further problems.
Every effort has been made to avoid any influence from commercial bodies. Where recommendations are made for resources, these are based on quality and where authors believe they offer best benefit for patients.
