Pain Coach™ can help you set short-term and long-term goals and also offers tips to help you meet those goals. There's also a library containing WebMD content for your specific condition.
Pain Coach™ is free and available for iPhone and iPad.
Technology has become an important tool in improving the care you receive from your medical team, as well as helping you manage day-to-day living with chronic conditions. Apps like Track+React and Pain Coach™ can be excellent partners in helping you live well with arthritis and chronic pain. Tracking triggers and symptoms as you experience them throughout the day will help you identify patterns. Being able to predict what intensifies or decreases your symptoms can help you change behaviors and treatments and ultimately improve your quality of life.
