Major trauma occurs when a person sustains serious injuries to one part of the body or injuries to several parts of the body at the same time. Many people experiencing major trauma have injuries to their legs. Pain immediately after a major injury is common and can last many months. Some people also experience pain after their injury has healed. Pain after a leg injury can lead to difficulties with recovery. The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of delivering a new treatment that aims to improve the management of pain after injury. The treatment involves supporting people after injury with advice from a health professional and the use of a special website that has been developed by clinical experts and patient representatives.
