Why we made this course


There is a massive human cost of chronic pain and we need to take a different approach. Together we can bridge the gap between research and what is done in practice with evidence-based treatments that work.

Dave Moen - Director & Clinical lead

Dave Moen is a Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapist in Adelaide, South Australia.

After working with Prof. Lorimer Moseley’s pain research group, Dave created Tame the Beast and then started Form Physiotherapy in 2015. Since then, his group have worked with leading pain scientists to deliver clinical trials and treatment resources using best-practice pain science.

Permission to Move is the most recent project. The online course and individual coaching are an outcome of these years of research and investigation in chronic pain.

Prof. Lorimer Moseley – Leading Pain Scientist

The Permission to Move “approach is informed at a deep level by modern pain science, behavioural change science, and self-efficacy theory”.

It “has pulled in an impressive array of experts, and in each case … taken the best of it and built a blended model of care that is both sensible and doable”.

Listen to our patients tell their stories of recovery from pain


“You train your brain and it’s more powerful than any opioid you could take. You need to see that light at the end of the tunnel and make a beeline for it.”


“I just had to work through with the pain - training was the only medicine that would help… I’ve been running a lot now, playing soccer again, kicking goals, I’m the fastest on the team.”


“It’s such a huge journey in such a short amount of time. I genuinely never ever thought I would be doing the things that I’m doing and I never thought that they would be pain free.”
