Two searchable pain management directories are Poweroveryourpain.com and Pain.com. Both sites allow patients to enter criteria to locate the closest pain specialists in their areas.
Sites such as Poweroveryourpain.com and Pain.com also include information kits, patient stories, forums for interaction with other patients, dietary advice and videos. The St. Jude Medical Patient Ambassador Program offers the opportunity to connect directly with another patient who is currently visiting or has visited a pain management clinic. Patients can enroll in the program by telephone or on the Internet, and it connects each individual to another person with similar circumstances, states Power Over Your Pain.
