Pain is one of the main symptoms of arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions. For some people, the pain is long-lasting and interferes with their daily life.

Our self-management information will tell you about different approaches to pain relief and who you can ask for support. It includes activities to help you record and assess your experiences.
