Chronic pain is no fun and unfortunately many people suffer from it. learning how to manage this issue is, for many, a life long process once it begins. The app, Curable, wants to give patients who suffer from chronic, physical pain, another tool in managing and perhaps even moving past it.
This app was developed using research from pain science as well as evidenced based techniques to help people approach their pain and combat it. It does this by focusing on the brain which is what tells the body to feel pain. the app hooks you with with your own digital coach to help you get through the flare.
The developers are not saying that chronic pain isn’t real or that it’s “all your head” only that what the body is going through is not necessarily the injury itself but the brain continuing to send pain signals even after healing has taken place due to damaged nerves. This is an app made to offer some help but when dealing with medical issues it’s always best to consult with your doctor and medical team before starting any new treatments. You can download the app on both Apple and Android products, there is a monthly fee that starts at $12.99.
