Why is ACRM committed to supporting a new PAIN REHABILITATION Group? Click to read an informative interview with Virgil T. Wittmer, PhD, Past Chair of the Pain Rehabilitation Networking Group 

You’re invited! Get involved with the ACRM interdisciplinary Pain Rehabilitation Networking Group (PRNG). Help identify the critical rehabilitation issues this group will address, recruit colleagues in the field, or step into a leadership role as chair of a task force.




The ACRM Pain Rehabilitation Networking Group (PRNG) will attract the best clinicians and researchers in the world to promote and study interdisciplinary pain rehabilitation.  We will use the information from research and collaboration to reduce the emotional and physical suffering associated with pain.

The PRNG recognizes that chronic pain is a major cause of disability, and thus recognizes that ACRM is the best organization to advance interdisciplinary research and education.


Thank you for being a member of the Pain Rehabilitation Networking Group! We would like to invite you to join the next Pain Rehabilitation Networking Group All Member meeting!

We will discuss the upcoming ACRM Annual Conference, current projects and opportunities for research and collaboration to reduce the emotional and physical suffering associated with pain.

The third and final wave of submissions for the 2023 ACRM Annual Conference is now open. The PNG has the goal and opportunity to fill seven symposium slots during this meeting. Please consider submitting a symposia and be sure to select “pain rehabilitation” as the primary area when submitting.

We hope you are able to join us!
