Why we care

Chronic pain is a burden suffered by millions worldwide.
Its effects are complex and far-reaching, leaving patients and their families often without effective therapy – feeling helpless.

PainSolve is a research community for all those interested in tackling the burden of chronic pain.
It is a resource and platform for pain research; together, we want to better understand pain and work towards better pain solutions.

We are openly sharing our extensive knowledge in several areas of pain.
This includes our interactive body map of almost 100 pain conditions.
