Conquer your pain challenge to help those who live with chronic pain

Join UniSA’s team in the Ride for Pain, 15 November 2015

Giuseppe Laspina

Are you prepared to take on a pain challenge? UniSA’s Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and Chair in Physiotherapy, Lorimer Moseley, leads an Adelaide wide consortium called PainAdelaide. On 15 November they are participating in the Ride for Pain - a challenging community cycling event that aims to raise awareness of chronic pain and show support to those in our community who live with chronic pain.

Chronic pain is the planet’s most burdensome health issue. It costs our communities more than cancer and diabetes combined. Not to mention the massive social, economic and emotional burden on sufferers and their families – over 15% of Australians have a chronic pain condition that reduces their quality of life.

Scientific evidence shows that the first step towards reducing this massive burden is to increase understanding of the problem and its solution. The Ride for Pain is about giving you an insight into what it is like to have chronic pain and what it takes to recover.

Adelaide is one of the most important pain research and management centres on the planet. Now it is your turn to get involved. Take on your pain challenge.

Can you ride for six hours? Four? Even two? The Ride for Pain is all about YOU conquering YOUR pain challenge.
