    When you finish the CPB, your CPB Report will be immediately ready for you to read.  We strongly recommend that you Print and Save your Report as soon as it is ready.  In any event, this must be within 10 days as your information and CPB Report will be deleted from this website after that time for security purposes.  You will be the only one who has access to your results and it will be your sole responsibility regarding who you make it available to, if anyone.

     It is important for you to understand that the accuracy of the results and findings in your CPB Report are based on the information you provide. No test such as this can always be 100% accurate in all situations.  The statements, descriptions and recommendations in your CPB Report are based on inferences and probabilities, and therefore are suggestive rather than conclusive and should be understood and viewed in that context.  No decisions or actions related to your pain problem should be based solely on the results of the CPB.  It is always important to discuss all questions, concerns or possible actions regarding your medical problems with your health provider(s).

     By purchasing the CPB you will be agreeing to be solely responsible for the use of any information obtained from the CPB or from this website and that neither Pain Resource Center, Inc. nor any of its officers, board of directors, owners or employees are responsible, or have any liability, to the test taker or anyone else for any decisions made or actions taken based on the results of the CPB or information from this website.
