The Belgian Pain Society, Belgian chapter of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) and the European Pain Federation (EFIC),  is a multidisciplinary scientific association which brings together medical and non-medical professionals involved in the management of chronic and acute pain. The goal of our association is to support education for the treatment of pain, stimulate pain research, improve patient care by creating a network optimized for the correct pain management, and participate in the public health care.

EFIC on the Move

The theme for 2017-2020 is ‘EFIC On the Move’ focusing on the importance of physical activity in preventing primary and secondary pain. Physical activity has well known health benefits including a reduced risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and improved mental health. What is less well known is that greater levels of physical activity and exercise are also associated with a lower risk of developing chronic pain.
