Pathways Pain Relief - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, we had prior web and app development experience before creating Pathways. That was really helpful, as Pathways was quite a complex project.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The two most challenging aspects of developing this app were, first, creating the content for our various pain relief programs. Then it was handling all the different types of content in the app. From video and audio to text-based challenges, quizzes, and beyond. Handling the way all these different types of content is served was a challenge.

Sandip is the founder of Pathways. After dealing with chronic pain for many years, and then recovering, he decided to dedicate his time to creating a product that could take a pain sufferer like him, back to full health.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Calm and Breathe. Once you load those apps, you almost immediately start feeling a sense of calm and relief come over you. That’s what we hope to do in Pathways.

How long have you been working on this app?

From the initial version to now, 2.5 years.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

That the user is probably in pain, and they’ve probably tried many solutions for their pain. So in the shortest amount of time possible, we need to show that we can help pain sufferers alleviate pain with our mind-body techniques.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

I believe we’re the most comprehensive digital pain product. Some products help pain sufferers with the mental aspect of dealing with pain. Some help with the physical. We aim to help pain patients in every way they need. From learning mindfulness and meditation to practicing physiotherapy and yoga, while tracking symptoms over time. No other pain product offers all that we’re able to. And I feel like we’re just getting started!

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Next, we’re adding an SOS panic button for when pain sufferers are going through a spike of pain. This will include guided breathing, and simple, but powerful, relaxing experiences. We’re then going to begin the development of our web app, as well as patient-doctor connection features. Later in the year, we plan to start developing guided, relaxing VR experiences.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

If you suffer from persistent pain, download the app. Or if you know someone that’s dealing with pain, let them know about our app. It might change their life!

Pathways Pain Relief

About App:

The Pathways pain relief program has helped hundreds of patients reduce, and sometimes even get rid of persistent, aka chronic pain.

When pain lasts for longer than 3 months, our body's pain system can start becoming overactive and overprotective. Sounding the alarm (pain!) all too often. But there are steps we can take to retrain your brain, and turn down the volume on pain.

We've helped patients with all different types of diagnosis reduce pain. The most common diagnosis include:

  • Back pain
  • Migraines/headaches
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Neck Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Joint Pain
  • Digestive Issues
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Here are some of the key techniques you'll find in the Pathways program:

  • Pain science education
  • Diaphragmatic breathing
  • Visualizations & Graded Imagery
  • Physical Exercise
  • Meditations
  • Mindfulness Exercises
  • Stress Reducing Exercises
  • Your personal pain therapist will take you on your own journey to understanding why you feel pain, and work to break the pain cycle.

    You can track how your pain develops over time, and focus on the pain relief techniques that work for you.
