We have been designing and running clinical trials since the late 1990s, in diverse areas: chronic pain, clinical depression, and academic and behavioural performance in at-risk children.
More recently we’ve chosen to focus on chronic pain, since this is an area we believe can have the most impact on quality of life, encompassing within it so many other factors.
This paper takes a very detailed look at all treatments currently in use for chronic pain and shows quite clearly that none are providing relief for the great majority of people, but are wasting many billions of dollars every year on what are essentially wild goose chases, and harming patients at the same time.
This paper sets out the evidence for a new and far more useful understanding of chronic pain, as well as evidence for far more effective treatment.
This paper is in the process of being written and will be completed once results of the trial have been catalogued and analysed. Participants can commence the trial at any time, and referrals are welcome.
