Self-management of chronic pain should enable patients to regain an acceptable quality of life, autonomy, and reduce the number of consultations. These strategies are increasingly available on mobile applications, which have been evaluated for their content and effectiveness in several reviews. The vast majority of applications offer only one self-management strategy, few opportunities for interactions, and have not involved patients and healthcare professionals in their development. It is therefore still difficult to determine their effectiveness in the self-management of chronic pain. However, mobile applications should not be neglected. On the contrary, it is necessary to develop validated applications in French considering the five criteria classically recommended for self-management. Then such applications can be prescribed by health professionals as part of the multimodal management of chronic pain.
