WebMD's new app is a mobile companion to coach consumers through daily health and wellness choices so that they can better manage their pain while living a healthy life. It offers patients a personalized experience by delivering daily physician-reviewed tips about managing their specific condition(s) to their mobile device. With the app, WebMD helps consumers take control of their lifestyle choices by enabling them to easily review their pain patterns so they can understand triggers, set goals and share progress with their physician.

"WebMD recognized that many who suffer from chronic pain have more than one condition, which is why WebMD's Pain Coach™ uniquely enables tracking of multiple chronic pain conditions all within one app. With WebMD's Pain Coach™, users can track and view symptoms, triggers, treatments and goals on a daily basis, further monitoring progression," said Dr. Michael Smith, Chief Medical Editor at WebMD. "WebMD Pain Coach™ is also a portable reminder and checklist for patients to reference when communicating with their physician at the point of care, enhancing patient-physician communications to help with health decisions and treatments."

According to the Institute of Medicine of The National Academies, there are over 100 million Americans suffering from a chronic pain condition. WebMD Pain Coach™ provides tools and resources to help those suffering from chronic back pain, neck pain, nerve pain, fibromyalgia, migraine, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, with customized information based on their condition, treatments and lifestyle.
