Pain Revolution is going global and now is your chance to be part of it. Join Le Pub Scientifique, Lorimer Moseley and Pain Revolution to see how you can get involved. This is the first of a series of fundraisers for Pain Revolution – half of all proceeds are going towards transforming the future of global pain education and care.

First up…

Ever wondered what a Pain Revolution public event looks like?

We have! And we are super excited welcome Local Pain Educator, Abbie Norrish to demonstrate live how they are changing people’s understanding of pain on a grand scale.

Abbie’s personal journey from lived experience to pain educator is an inspiration in itself, she’ll be ‘on the couch’ with Lorimer sharing her story; the highs and lows, the challenges and rewards of being a key part of the Pain Revolution.


Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall in Lorimer Moseley’s clinic?

Yeeeesss! Lorimer Moseley invites you to join him for what promises to be an enlightening and entertaining clinical encounter. See Lorimer as never before, how does he put a patient at ease? What questions does he ask? How does he cope with challenges?

Followed by…

How was it for you?

Lorimer and his patient will be interviewed about the encounter and invited to open up about how it felt from both view points.

And finally…

We’ll be wrapping up with details about you can get more involved with Pain Revolution from ‘Peaks for Pain’ to free online patient events.

So…what are you waiting for? Grab your ticket and join the revolution!

Pain Revolution

Pain Revolution started in 2017 with a group of clinicians, researchers and advocates in Australia riding into the outback to provide support to local health professionals to become pain experts and spread the word in their community.

Riding 870kms in a week is a big effort. So is living with Persisting Pain. We’re taking health and care out of the clinic, and meeting the communities that need help and support, so we can work together to create solutions for better pain management and education

A Must listener – Stephen McMahon at PRF

Musings on the Progress of Pain Research: A Podcast with Stephen McMahon


You could spend 45 minutes in a whole bunch of worse ways…
“McMahon discusses his early days in the pain research field, what it was like to train with Patrick Wall, the gate control theory of pain, central sensitization, and much more”

“Not the smartness of people but the smartness of nature, I still think that there are many thinks to be discovered from the natural world that would greatly help in our efforts to develop analgesics”

Why is Pain Painful?

Why is Pain Painful

This is not an easy questions but we love to philosophy. Laura Rathbone – one of our team members sharing her thoughts.
Pain is painful because it is pain. Painful feelings are painful because they are full of the experience of pain. Seems tautological to me because pain is simply the language we’ve decided to give something we experience and mutually agree upon.
I don’t think one can reasonably make any argument that doesn’t include an evolutionary perspective on the merit of feeling some sort of unpleasant experience tied to an increased likelihood of danger wether it be physical or psychological
Pain is pain because evolution has deemed it quite helpful…otherwise we likely wouldn’t be here and we wouldn’t see nocifensive behavior across just about every other living creature.
What pain (that word we ascribe that somewhat mutually defined experience to) means to each person is of course different…and in part I firmly believe that is mainly due to environmental/lifestyle, psychological, and sociological evolutions in humans that have far outpaced physical evolution
