I've never purchased any online course, and we've been approached often over the years to promote certain courses but can't do that as it's so subjective.

The real issues are that the treatment for CP differs so much from person to person. It's my opinion that almost any "course" must be tailored for the individual and I'm unsure how that can be managed purely online.

Please donate to help continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

I would not go for that either. I would do better reading some online articles from some reputable clinic like the Mayo Clinic for example, or asking the Ortho or Neuro surgeon for some pamphlets or videos pertaining to your own medical problems. What ever you decide to go with, remember that pain come in different shape and sizes and affects each individual in different ways. When it comes to pain, there is not a cure all for it....Edie
Chronic pain throughout the spine caused by osteoarthritis (DDD). Started at neck, spread to thoracic, and lately to lumbar area. Most of my spine is affected by bulges, disc height loss and dehydration, bone spurs, annular tears, foraminal stenosis, probable nerve impingement, and degeneration at end plates and facets.

The disease extends from Cervical C2-3 to C7-T1. Thoracic T4 to T10.
Lumbar T12-L1 to L5-S1.
It is all non operable.

Other conditions
TKR R Knee.
Torn ACL, MCL L knee,
Pain on legs and calves
Deep vein thrombosis
Migraine headaches
Painful spots all over scalp
Chronic Hyperventilation. Caused by anxiety or stress
Chronic depression and insomnia
