Dorset Community Pain Service provides group programmes which are designed to help you recognise the many areas of life chronic pain can affect. For some people the prospect of being in a group can seem quite daunting.

It is ironic that though human beings have always experienced pain, our scientific knowledge still can't explain some of the pain conditions people suffer from.
Pain management programmes are not aimed at treating your pain, though this may well be the result. They are aimed at providing you with tools to develop new ways of dealing with pain, different attitudes towards managing it, new skills, strengths and activities to replace ones you can no longer participate in, all of which bring a level of pleasure, accomplishment and self-esteem back into your life so that you can truly 'Soar above pain'.

Do you need extra help?
You can opt to be contacted by a trained pain coach (somebody who knows what it’s like to live with daily pain) who can offer you additional support to help with your goals if you need it.
We are very sorry but due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to offer any new pain coaches at the moment but will endeavour to get this back up and running as soon as possible.
