What is ComExPain project?

The overall aim of this research project is to design a programme to support people with chronic musculoskeletal pain to undertake community-based exercise.

Researchers recently asked CPI members to complete a survey to understand the barriers and facilitators to involvement in community-based exercise for people with chronic pain, and to identify the features of an ideal community based exercise programme to meet their needs.
