Pain Care App is an on-the-go toolkit for people living with chronic pain. Designed to help users regain control of their lives from pain, it offers calming meditations, evidence-based training strategies, breathing tools, and tracking functionality – all at your fingertips. Use it to Relax and Reflect.

Relax: Expand your skillset for living well with pain through daily practice of relaxation exercises and pain strategies. Choose from a variety of guided mediations geared specifically towards relaxation, or play calming music to help you release the tension that often comes with chronic pain. Practice box- breathing skills on demand when pain is at it’s worst.

Reflect: Track how you are feeling each day with the interactive survey wheel to better understand your evolving experience with pain. Result summaries show how your pain affects your mood, sleep, and anxiety over time. The app also integrates with Apple Health app, and displays information about your physical activity (e.g. steps, flights climbed, and walking distance), allowing us to show you summaries to help you meet your goals. Try different pain strategies for relaxation and view your progress at finding comfort.

This app also serves as a companion to Pain Care VR to reinforce the key learnings from virtual reality and practice the same skills on-the-go. Unlock audio and video recaps that allow you to revisit the VR experiences outside of the headset to get back to loved activities and live better with pain.

Two thumbs up

Solid app. I deal with a lot of chronic illnesses. One of them being migraines. The only thing I wish is that the background would change to “dark appearance” on my iPhone like my other apps do. That would help me greatly with my light sensitivity. Still a very helpful and easy to use app.

They should charge!

Hardly anything out there that helps with serious chronic pain. I have quite a lot of apps that promise and don’t deliver. There are a lot of different parts to this app but my real goto is one called Power Over Pain/Releasing Pain. I listen to that every night.

Lot to explore in this - I hope they will keep adding to it. These are people who know pain.

This was really helpful, particularly the pain education. The woman who provided the education gave me a different way to think about my pain. The exercises were convenient and fit into my schedule.

Developer Response ,

Great to hear! Dr. Darnall is great. She's got even more helpful videos on her website too.
