Welcome to the Pain Toolkit Website
For people who live with persistent pain
A persistent pain problem can be difficult to understand and manage on an everyday basis.
The Pain Toolkit is a simple information booklet that could provide you with some 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 it and take on board some of the suggestions.
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 the Bradford pain Rehabilitation Programme team and NHS Kirklees PCT.
These tools have helped many people and could also help you too!

Professor Paul Watson and his dog Midge running from John OGroats to Lands End
Midge and I have decided to do the big one; John O'Groats to Land's End 1200 miles on footpaths. Why Blind Faith? Because Midge is now blind but he has the faith to follow me anywhere. We are doing this to raise funds for Hounds for Heroes. I chose this charity because I think Midge himself is a bit of a hero, blindness makes little difference to him so I thought this was appropriate.
