Chronic pain is often hard to describe, depending on the cause. But it estimated that about ten percent of people in various countries have chronic wide-spread pain. Those who have it may find it frustrating to explain how they are feeling. An app may be just what they need. The University Health Network in Toronto enrolled patients in a study of the Manage My Pain digital app. It helped patients tell their story to caregivers by recording their daily activities and rating their pain, especially important in rural areas where medical facilities may be limited. There may be other methods of managing chronic pain, but the Manage My Pain app showed significant improvement in several challenges faced by chronic pain sufferers.
