Pain Treatment Options For Patients

Help What Hurts was founded on the premise that when given appropriate and reliable information regarding their conditions and pain treatment options, patients will make the choices that are right for them.

With the internet, collecting information about health conditions and treatment choices is like “sipping from a fire hose.” There is simply too much information for the average person to sift through to make a decision, and much of it is biased, outdated or inaccurate. Help What Hurts is composed of experts with decades of clinical experience in the fields of chiropractic, medicine, acupuncture and physical therapy.

We plow through the scientific literature to bring you unbiased accurate information about your condition and your pain treatment options, including the things that matter most to patients:

  • How well does it work?
  • How safe is it?
  • How much does it cost?

With that information, you can actually make decisions about what you want to try for your problem, rather than relying only on what other people tell you to do.

Help What Hurts constantly adds new experts to our panels, and we invite experts with opposing points of view to provide us with their viewpoints and the scientific citations to back them up.
