The PainSupport website was founded by Jan Sadler in 2000. Jan has lived with the challenges of back pain and sciatica for many years and so understands the experience of living with chronic pain. She lives in the UK where she has been working with people in pain since 1990.
Jan was awarded an MBE in 2012 for her work with PainSupport and her services to pain management.
Jan is a teacher and the author of books and CDs including ‘Pain Relief Without Drugs’, which is packed with self-help techniques for reducing pain and stress. Her innovative ideas and imaginative techniques have a proven track record over many years.
The PainSupport website is recommended by many NHS hospital-based Pain Management Programmes and Pain Clinics.
Jan designed the PainSupport website to share her information on pain management with others. She writes in a straightforward way that is easy to understand. Jan also recognises the importance of contact with other people in a similar situation and the enormous benefits from the mutual support and understanding gained. For this reason, as well as the many pages of pain reducing techniques, the site features a Discussion Forum and also a Contact Club which enables people to find new friends.
The PainSupport website aims to help people in pain move forward in their lives with better pain self-management, with or without drugs, and to live a fulfilling and meaningful life, despite having pain.
