Welcome to

PG platform images (7)_edited.png

...a global community of readers, clinicians and thinkers. 

Open Textbook in Library

Pain Geeks is a place to explore the science and philosophy behind the phenomenon of pain. Together, we look at new and classic resources, discuss, and find support for integrating this information with our existing understanding.

We are a group of clinicians passionate about understanding pain and dedicated to drawing on philosophy, science, rehabilitation and the humanities to help inform our skillset to supporting people experiencing pain. 

What's included in Pain Geeks?

Monthly Discussions

Structured community discussions with other Pain Geeks from around the world. Together we explore the  readings and share our thoughts.

Video Library

We meet regularly with pain experts and leading researchers to film discussions for you to enjoy at your leisure. We often do the discussions live so members can attend to ask questions in real time! There are included in the Super Geek Membership, but are also for individual sale here

Journal Club

New readings curated for you every month exploring pain from a particular theme. Readings are from a wide variety of scientific fields, including philosophy, humanities, sociology and biology. This is to help us develop our understanding of pain from a wide context. 


Pain Geeks offers courses in-person in Amsterdam, and live-streamed online. Check out our course page to see who is coming to teach next!




Book Club

Every 3rd month on Pain Geeks, we dedicate the month to a book related to pain and/or the humanities. Read along with us as we make our way through the piles of pain books on nightstands around the world - we know you have them!

Meet The Team

The Pain Geeks team currently consists of Laura and Christine. We love what we do here on here Pain Geeks! Every member of the community really feels like family and we are so grateful for the kindness that is shown in every single meeting. This community is full of clinicians who go the extra-mile for their patients and for themselves. It's a really cool place to hang out.
