Research Study: Have You Overcome Chronic Pain?

RA Guy Community News 4 Comments

Millions of people suffer from chronic pain every day. Some are able to overcome their pain problem; and we are interested in learning from these individuals in order to help others.

This study has been constructed to allow individuals to record their own stories of overcoming chronic pain. These stories will be studied to search for common themes and patterns. It is our hope these stories will help us develop future therapeutic regimens for chronic pain sufferers.

To be eligible to participate in the study, candidates should be at least 21 years old and have overcome a daily pain problem that lasted a year or longer. Interviews typically last from 30 to 60 minutes and can take place in person (Columbia, Missouri) or on the phone.

For more information, visit or call (573) 303-6886.

    A close friend of mine is one of the co-investigators of this study. If you feel like you’ve overcome your chronic pain, it would be great if you could help them reach their sample size of 100 participants by participating in this study and sharing your experience.
