Patient's Story: Richard W.


Hi, I’m Richard and I suffer from a herniated disk and back pain. I had a hip replacement a few years ago, and ever since it’s been very painful to sit or stand for a long time. I am really trying to spend time with my son and support my family, and having chronic pain makes it hard.

PainScale has helped me learn about treatments that I can ask my doctor about to help ease my pain, and avoid taking more and more medication. When I look at the learn tab there are always a lot of amazing articles, and I read about new things every time I log onto the app.

I think that PainScale is a fantastic tool to learn about what treatments are out there, and it helps me manage my pain better so I can spend time with my family.
