I found the course very interesting. I've learnt a lot about my condition and how to handle the pain. I found the exercises and meditation helped a lot. Thank you.

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.

I must admit I was a little sceptical about how much I would get out of this course, however I have been suprised. Although it is very early days I have seen some improvement with regards to my pain and the big help has been the relaxation and mindfulness parts of the course. It's allowed me to understand my pain much better and how to deal with it. I would like to thank everyone on the course for the insight and help and I will continue to implement as much as I can and hopefully return to having some form of enjoyment out of life.

Make sure you are as alert as possible each time you start a new step, in order to absorb and remember what you are being told in the videos. You can replay a video, but can't go back to it once you have moved on to the next step. I have found the course quite helpful particularly the meditation and exercises. I tried to reduce my meds without too much success. That's something I'd like to be able to do in the longer term. I still have pain, but it's easier to work through it. Doing this course in virtual lockdown and in the busy run up to Christmas was not the best time, because anxiety levels for me are higher during the pandemic and it was difficult to remember to log on to the course with all the distractions of Christmas. Overall, the course has been helpful and I'm glad I took part in it.

The pathway through pain is definitely worth participating in no matter what your circumstances or level of pain. You will probably already have tried or will be using some of the tools and techniques described but there is always the chance you'll find something new to try. The positive yet realistic approach of the specialists providing the course is great and helps you relate to them and encourages you to try what they suggest. Not everything will help or be useful but many things will be and if just one thing improves your quality of life and/or helps towards reducing your pain levels or coping strategies then it will have been worth it.

When I first heard about this course I was in some doubt that it would actually help. Surprisingly I am happy to say this course has been enlightening! I have thoroughly enjoyed the expert videos and the helpful tips. The course is easy to do and manage at ones own pace. I would highly recommend that others who suffer from chronic pain try the course as there is a lot of good advice and tips on how to try and improve your quality of life and to manage the pain better. The course also addresses the impact pain can have on one's mental health also, which is very helpful. I am glad I decided to take this step and will be sure to access the resources in the library online as a way to continue with pain management.

I found the course easy to do and I was keen to complete each new step. The information was clear and easy to follow and I found the meditation videos very helpful and easy to engage with.

The course overall has been very helpful. It has taught several useful methods I can use to try and limit my pain, though the limit to which it can help depends on how bad my pain is at any given time. My only comment regarding the course itself, is that asking questions with a simply range of options to choose from, I feel does not allow the individual to have the ability to give some feedback on how they feel; found something useful or simply give a more precise response. I don't know if any of the returns are reviewed by someone, but if they are, it might give them a more accurate insight on how a patient might feel or how helpful the course is. The latter would give developers, how well the course helps patients and areas of possible improvement for future users.

Thankyou for the opportunity to participate in the course, I have really enjoyed the process and have found lots of fantastic information on improving my thoughts about pain and the way I can manage it. I have started to integrate these into my daily stretching and strengthening routines I currently perform and have seen there is light at the end of the tunnel. I will need to keep practicing some of the techniques, especially the meditation and relaxation side of things, I struggle to relax and have a young family so finding the time to perform these activities, or get the peace and quiet to do it can be tricky! I was prepared for a longer term improvement so am happy to continue with the routines and advice given and am determined to continue my improvement.
