What to expect on the course
This proven digital therapeutic covers all the elements of an intensive Pain Management Programme (PMP). You'll be led through 24-steps comprising of pre-recorded videos, exercises and assignments to practise in your own time.
We recommend you aim to complete the course in a month, but it can be done at your own pace, taking breaks when you need to. There are also set break points within the course to help you pace yourself.
