Initially the course didnt seem to be helping, but as it went on, it all gelled together and became very helpful. I am continuing with the exercises and relaxation techniques to help my pain.

The pain I am in can change from day to day, the weather plays a big part When it’s sunny, I think everyone feels happy, when the sunshine’s for me it’s the warmth as the cold plays massive on my day to day living. I am unable to bath, while I can get in I am unable to get out !! So I have to shower, I struggle to wash myself, so I have adapted a way that I can manage, I don’t shower when in the house alone, as I’ve fallen out several times, I am unable to wash an dry my hair,!so am reliant on family luckily for me my granddaughter lives with me which helps a lot. I am not going to ramble on what I can’t do, I try to think positive on the things I can/try to do, I don’t let the bad things out way the good things that I managed to do. Sometimes I do the most silliest of things which causes me to fall, or go shopping for for 2/3 things end up getting to much which I am unable to carry so have a melt down an someone has to come an get me then the next day I have a flare up an I’m unable to do anything for the next day or two, lesson learnt don’t go to shop alone, I keep trying it’s the not being able to walk pain free that gets me down I had ankle fusion 3yrs ago, I have scoliosis so this has made it worse, due to one leg longer than other, this pandemic halted a lot of things in my life I have a wedge now which helps, I bought myself a back brace which I wear for 30/ mins to a hour a day to try to correct my posture with this comes pain discomfort I feel if it helps I will still continue to use, I say to myself stand straight pull your shoulders back Gina when I walk, walking is a journey In itself steep roads are a stopping starting process, I get there in the end !! Basically it’s don’t go shopping on your own so I am stuck indoors hence, the sunshine helps as I can sit in the garden I had pneumonia also aug/sept which knocked me back as I am never poorly I’m going to stop now ha ha

To make the most of this course, I found that the key is to set aside time once or twice a week specifically to dedicate completing the steps. Once I did this I progressed quickly. I learnt a lot about the physiology of pain and welcomed the opportunities provided to challenge my thoughts about the pain I experience in relation to how it makes me feel and how I go about trying to best manage it. I enjoyed trying out new techniques to help manage pain, for example I find the guided meditations particularly helpful. The resource library within the programme is an excellent idea, as if the activities were not collated there I would probably either forget to use them altogether or forget where I can find them. If I were to give advice to someone just starting the course, I would say set dedicated times once or twice a week to complete a step. I would also recommend submitting weekly entries to the journal so that I could track my progress and use this to reflect back on.

Overall I found the course very good, however I now need to practice all that's been thought for a month. Which I will continue do, maybe except the deep relaxation.

This course was used as a refresher course, as I had a face to face one a few years ago. The information was clear and understandable but I have such difficulty in concentrating that I probably didn't take on board as much as I should have done.. Re-watching doesn't improve my concentration - the Covid lockdown and the weather has not helped either.

Personally I would have liked more information on pacing as I feel this would have been beneficial to me if it was explored further. I have also found the section on stretching helpful and was hoping for more content in regards of how to increase physical activity.

I found the Pathway Through Pain Course to be most useful. Firstly, it made me feel less alone knowing that the Doctors and experts understood how difficult it is dealing with pain. The different tasks were all most useful and have helped me considerably. I would recommend the course to anyone who suffers from chronic pain.

I've suffered with chronic pain for 2 years now after ending my carer as a entertainer as I couldn't hardly walk or move much. After lots of scans and xrays, then going from one specialist to another being diagnosed with hsd/fibromyalgia osteoarthritis and degeneration disc disease. But a month ago having a ultrasound scan they discovered hamstring enthesopathy, so I was like oh no more problems! However, I now have a amazing p.t who has taught me the right exersises to do and my legs are getting stronger! I do have to pace with all my conditions. Then I was given this course and it's helped me understand pain a lot more.

I have enjoyed this journey very much and found it very helpful. It is clear and informative. Well explained and reinforces things you may have been thinking yourself. Stretches and relaxation meditations are brilliant.

The course has helped me to find even more ways to relax and overcome the pain. I also learnt a lot from the talks from the experts. It is also nice to have the meditation lessons to use. The final one in the series is brilliant it can be used for complete relaxation or to help with sleep. I have learned a lot more techniques to overcome my pain. I do physio and Tai Chi every day but have now added the stretches and exercises to my regime. It is well worth the extra time every day and is enjoyable. I have also discovered a new mind set to cope with my pain through going through this course to the end. It has definitely changed my life and I am sure that over the coming months I will get even less pain as all that I have learnt from this course works it’s wonders.

The course was informative and easy to follow. It felt like they were a group of people who genuinely understood what life is like for people trying to live and cope with pain. The advice makes sense. I am pleased I will have access to the online materials so I can try not to slip back into old ways of thinking. I know this will take a lot of time and practice and felt the team really understood this. Thank you to everyone involved.

I found Pathway through Pain to be a very useful resource. As a back pain sufferer for some 50 years, I have become very familiar with my pain and after many procedures, medications and manipulations have learnt to live with it to the best of my ability. A lot of what is covered in the course I was already aware of, and some of the exercises already using. Most beneficial to me were the guided meditations which have helped me slowdown and give time to myself. Thanks everyone. John.

I found the course to be a gentle, empathic support. It has been motivating and reminded me of my own power to 'self help'. The authoritative yet compassionate expert guidance has given me the motivation and support to become more active in improving my state; both mental and physical.

I have found the meditation videos particularly useful; they have helped me set aside some time for myself and relax more, put things in perspective and ultimately manage pain better. I would definitely recommend this course to others - there is certainly no downside to giving it a go.
