We are angela + sarah, the co-founders of the painspace, and like you we are chronic pain sufferers.
The research tells us that using technology to send regular messages to support, educate and motivate people who are living with chronic illness changes health related behaviour and improves outcomes.
You'll receive 4 messages a week. The messages distil the essential components of everything we've used to help ourselves and one another, which will help you access the endurance and personal agency you need in order to successfully and powerfully navigate life, despite persistent pain.
The paradox is; as a pain sufferer you have to actively do this work of pain management yourself, no one can do it for you ... but it's too hard to do alone.
You don't have to this this on your own! We'll be there like a guide, friend and support person on your side, as you learn to cultivate a way of living that's meaningful and has purpose for you.
HOW THE APP WORKS
This App is like a resource in your pocket that you can use wherever you are, whenever you need. You can trust that it's possible to put pain in the back seat of your life. But it's not a one time fix or permanent state, it fluctuates, and you need to respond accordingly.
We will walk this journey with you (you're probably wondering how we can do that through technology). It's our voice from real lived experience that we hope will resonate with your lived experience.
WHO THE APP IS FOR
This App is for you if you're someone experiencing chronic pain.
We know the messages in the App will be of help to you if you're someone who answers yes to any of the following.
I've been diagnosed with:
Ankle and Foot pain

I'm waiting for a surgical intervention
I've been through a pain clinic program already

I'm exploring allied and alternative therapies
I've had to stop work

I'm waiting for my legal compensation case to come through

This App is NOT for you if you are looking for a quick fix or a magic wand and it's not for you if you want to run from your pain.
No matter what you're going through, you have the power to make changes to your current reality. So rather than waiting for the pain to go in order to change your life, you can make changes in your life and your thoughts which gradually, little by little, make changes to the pain.
