Pain researchers in Australia need help understanding pain in people with spinal cord injury.

Kimberly Talaber, a physiotherapist and PhD candidate at Griffith University, is exploring what it means to have pain following spinal cord injury. Findings of this study will be used to guide further research and improve non-pharmacological pain interventions. This survey will be open until the end of September 2021.

 The survey explores pain and its impacts, what people believe may cause it, and treatments that people have found helpful or unhelpful.
