You have chronic pain. You are suffering.
We understand what you are going through, because we have been there…
Developed by a former chronic pain sufferer, Brain Changer is a daily app-based tool that empowers you, the chronic pain sufferer, to structure your day so that you pace yourself safely through the many activities you need to do. Importantly, the app puts into practice the pain science to help you recover.
Our users say it’s changing their lives…see Jackie and Gabby’s testimonial below.
Feedback from GP’s, pain psychologists and physiotherapists is that it’s the missing piece of the pain rehabilitation puzzle…see below testimonial from Kerrianne Abbott Psychology Services, Canberra.

In just over three months of using Brain Changer I am having pain free days. I have increased my activity incredibly, my brain is clearer and I’ve reduced my medications. I am starting to plan for a full rich life that has options, where I can do whatever I dream!
Gabby, chronic pain sufferer for 17 years
My chronic pain scores are now 4-5 out of 10 compared to 7-8 out of 10 when I start using Brain Changer. I’ve cut my opioids medications down by a third since January! I’ve started having long periods of almost no pain and can recover quickly from flare-ups, which are lower than before. I’m certain now I’m going to become pain free this year and will be off medication in 7 months. That’s my plan.
Jackie, chronic pain sufferer for 3 years
Brain Changer is a truly amazing tool that I have been using with my pain management clients for some 6 months. It has assisted greatly in the application of pain management principles, which some clients struggle to implement into everyday life.
The notion of Brain Changer being the ‘hand-rail’ for people to use as they regain control over their pain is one of the key features. There is also a huge focus on the importance of safety, confidence and repetition, which is what the brain needs to reprogram itself from chronic pain.
