David Butler

David Butler is an educationalist, clinician and researcher. His professional love is devising ways to take the complex ‘gifts’ of neuroscience to students, clinicians and sufferers in ways that change their lives.

“One theme that has emerged time and time again is the need for another resource... Many have pleaded in frustration for something that takes them beyond Explain Pain but doesn’t put them to sleep or intimidate the whoopsies out of them...
So here it is, Explain Pain Supercharged.”

Explain Pain Supercharged, Moseley and Butler 2017

Supercharge your understanding and treatment of pain

Explain Pain Supercharged is jam-packed with everything you need to provide effective, memorable, evidence-based, individualised pain education and treatment.

Realign your thinking.

Theories govern much of our clinical behaviour. Learn to recognise and question your own theories, form solid theories and set up a reliable and methodical way of thinking.

Enrich your therapeutic narrative.

Metaphors colour and widen our language – but they can also guide our thoughts and beliefs. Recognise metaphors and learn to enrich them as part of your therapeutic narrative.

Supercharge your pain biology.

Dive headfirst into the intricacies of the somatosensory system including the role of all skin receptors, ion channels, nociceptors, neuroimmune coupling, inflammation, central sensitisation 2.0 and much more.

Develop your own accessible pain stories

A collection of therapeutic narratives translates complex science into digestible nuggets and novellas. Check out our stories, ready to be adapted and taken into the clinic tomorrow.

Tailor information to your learner.

Conceptual change science provides the key for lasting, effective education strategies to explain pain. Find out which level of misconception the learner holds and how to target your individual education to them.

Adapt and create new Explain Pain curricula.

Curricula are the cornerstone of education. We’ve provided multiple in depth, ready to use examples and we’ll also guide you through developing your own for special situations.

Is Explain Pain Supercharged right for you?

Where Explain Pain and The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer are specifically designed to help patients understand their personal pain experience, Explain Pain Supercharged is designed for students, researchers and clinicians who want to go deeper into the complex biology of pain.

Explain Pain Supercharged has been constructed as an up to date and highly practical text book that you can refer to over and over as you construct pain interventions. It expands your knowledge base as a clinician and helps you apply the complex concepts effectively in your everyday practice.

Explain Pain Supercharged is extensively cross referenced with Explain Pain and the Handbook so that you’ll be able to enrich the Explain Pain journey no matter where your patients are at.

Yes, if you just want to gain the most up to date knowledge about pain biology that is available. However, if you are a clinician and are treating people experiencing pain, you’ll want to know Explain Pain front to back and back to front so that you can construct a unique Explain Pain curriculum for your patient and understand exactly what they are reading.
