TAO Connect Announces New Chronic Pain Management Course

TAO Connect, a digital health company focused on mental health therapy, announced this week the availability of its chronic pain course to transform the way patients manage their pain.

The course helps patients learn more about how their condition works within the brain and also provides guidance in using behavioral strategies to manage it.

It’s available through the company’s suite of online mental health tools and can be accessed through its self-help feature or with the support of a case manager or behavioral health provider.

TAO Connect’s program consists of 12 engaging online sessions educating its users about everything from the basics of medication and pain to the dangers of long-term use of opioids. The course explores research on alternative treatments such as massage, acupuncture and biofeedback, while also providing behavioral interventions such as cognitive-behavioral strategies, meditation, acceptance and commitment therapy and more.

“Our society has fallen victim to the notion that chronic pain can only be effectively managed through the heavy prescription of opioids alone, but this dangerous perception of pain-killers is fueling addiction rates and strengthening the opioid crisis as a whole,” said Dr. Sherry Benton, founder and chief science officer of TAO Connect. “Knowing how to manage chronic pain through behavioral health treatment is incredibly important, which is why we made it easily accessible to everyone who needs it.”
