The iBeatPain application helps teens with chronic pain and other symptoms. Are you a teen who has suffered with pain for months or even years? Have you limited your daily activities because of your symptoms? Teens with chronic pain or fatigue sometimes struggle to attend school every day, participate in daily physical exercise, and have fun with friends. For chronic pain to improve over time, teens need to slowly get back to their normal daily lives and participate even when they are not feeling well. This recommendation can be difficult or even overwhelming. The iBeatPain app helps teens and their parents by providing step by step guidance on their journey to wellness. The iBeatPain app identifies the goals and the small steps that teens need to take on a daily basis in order to get back their lives and return to normal daily functioning.
Every teen is unique and has different strengths and challenges. The iBeatPain application allows teens to select goals that are important to them. The app provides “Tips” for each goal to help teens set goals that are specific and achievable. Teens can create their own goal or select from several goals known to be both challenging and important for many teens with chronic pain, including
Engage in Self-Care (etc., brushing teeth, showering, eating meals)
Participate in School
Set Regular Sleep and Wake Times
Exercise and Stretch
Improve Sleep Quality
Choose Positive Self-Talk
Beating pain and other chronic symptoms can be tough. Some teens find that it helps to have inspiration on their journey toward wellness, so the iBeatPain application provides an inspiration box into which teens can place positive quotes, photos, or videos that lift, motivate, or empower them. We have preloaded this box with quotes that help us get through tough times, but teens may wish to add their own motivating quote from a friend, video of family cheering them toward health, or a photo of someone special. The ‘Inspiration Box’ provides teens with inspiration and motivation to help them reach their goals.
Connecting with other teens:
Teens who have pain and other symptoms sometimes feel alone and think they are the only teens dealing with these difficulties. The iBeatPain application provides a doorway for teens with chronic symptoms to start talking with other teens with pain or fatigue through a link to Mayo Clinics Connect site with the same title, “iBeatPain for Teens.” From this link, teens can meet others with pain, hear helpful advice from Mayo physicians who specialize in pain, and read patient education materials produced at the Mayo Clinic.

I love the app but it stopped working
I really hope someone can help me fix this because I love this app. Ever since I’ve updated my phone it won’t let me past the main loading page. Now I can’t use the app at all and it genuinely helps.
Could not get pass the loading page
So actually 0 stars because I downloaded the app, and literally all I got was the loading page and that’s it. And I would have used this app... kind of really stupid 😠😤
Hope you can fix!
I saw this app mentioned in literature at my doctor's office, and was excited to try it. Unfortunately, it will not function past the home page on iOS 10.2.1. I hope this glitch can be fixed!
Developer Response ,
I'm sorry you faced this issue.
It has been fixed in the recent update to version 1.2.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
