What's FUTUREPAIN?
Chronic pain is a big problem--it affects over 30.7% of adults and makes daily life difficult. FUTUREPAIN is a safe, accurate tool developed by UC Berkeley researchers to check your risk for chronic pain. After you take the survey, you'll be invited to an intervention that can either prevent your pain from happening or treat existing pain.
While there are many pain tests out there, most check if your pain will become long term. FUTUREPAIN is the only one that can predict your chronic pain before you get it.

How the survey works
The FUTUREPAIN survey predicts your risk of having chronic pain in 7-10 years--either the risk of getting chronic pain if you don't have it, or the risk of continuing to have chronic pain if you already have it. There are 17 questions that cover key risk factors like childhood experiences, mental health, and physical health.
Our algorithm calculates your risk of chronic pain on a scale of 0 to 100. Scores over 16 suggest you're at risk for having chronic pain in 7-10 years (either getting chronic pain if you currently don't have it, or continuing to have chronic pain if you're already experiencing it).
