In a world experiencing an epidemic of chronic pain and increasing evidence of the failure of synthetic drugs, simple but extremely powerful educational tools can effectively target the natural pain treatment systems within us all.

Knowledge is power. In the new series of Explain Pain courses delivered by NOI instructors around the world, contemporary pain sciences are made accessible and understandable for all.

We know more about pain in the last twenty years than in the thousand years before and it’s all providing answers to “why do I hurt the way I do” and “what can I do about it”. The knowledge is applicable to young and old, from back pain to hemiplegia and general aching to the complexities of phantom pain and complex regional pain syndrome.

Explain Pain works to reduce catastrophisation and negative pain beliefs and when combined with active treatment, reduces pain and enhances return to work and play. Explain Pain has no side effects, is available around the clock, and you can share the knowledge and strategies with others.

Don’t miss this opportunity. NOI Explain Pain courses are fun, intellectually stimulating, based on evidence, always challenging, and integrate the Explain Pain ecosystem of Explain Pain, The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer, and Explain Pain Supercharged. You will come away with the most impressive therapeutic tool set ever!


A strength of the Explain Pain course is that participants come from many professions, so come with an open mind.

In 2010 Bart completed his Masters in Physiotherapy after which he developed a special interest in complex and persistent pain states. He is passionate about the benefits of pain education for both clinician and patient and he is currently involved in research at Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, working on the development of an Explain Pain curriculum for clinicians and patients. This research includes a RCT in an CBT + Explain Pain intervention in order to fit the Explain Pain heritage in the usual care program of a multidisciplinary pain centre. In the near future he will be enrolled in a PhD program in order to get Explain Pain methodology to a higher level and even more applicable for the clinicians. Bart teaches physiotherapy both at undergraduate and postgraduate level with a focus on pain topics and as a Noigroup instructor he presents Explain Pain courses across the Netherlands and manages the Noigroup NL shop.
