2019 #upandrun series for UP Understand Pain started with the Brighton Marathon on April 14th. Next UP Richmond runs the Isle of Wight Challenge on 4/5 May. This is to raise awareness of the problem of pain, the No1 global health burden
Are you suffering chronic pain or injury? Does your pain persist despite trying different treatments? Is your life disrupted and limited by pain? Are you unable to do the things you love?
The Pain Coach Programme >> practical tools, coaching and treatment to understand your pain and move on to a fulfilling life. From pain to purpose.
Start now >> focus on how you want to live your life, doing the things you want to do and the positive steps to take each day to achieve results.
The 3 principles:
1. Understand your pain
2. Treat your pain
3. Build your wellness
“Richmond Stace is my go-to clinician for any person in pain, and he’s completely re-shaped the way I think about pain as a Doctor. He’s guided the recovery and empowerment of so many of my patients who’ve trapped for years by the way that their pain had made them think, feel and move. The most amazing part is that it’s all based on awesome science – yet he makes the process so ‘human’. He’s an inspiring speaker and coach, and a day spent learning from him is likely the be the best day of education you’ll ever have.” Dr Cath Spencer-Smith

Testimonials and stories of overcoming pain
“Finding Richmond six months ago was the start of a journey that has gotten me back doing the things I love and most importantly, feeling myself, something which I didn’t think would be possible.” SA, 2018
“I am now back to exercising as I wish – impact sport and running. I am confident and happy. I am very grateful for the help Richmond provided and I feel as though I would have been stuck in that rut for a long time otherwise. Although I was sceptical initially, I was quickly proven wrong and it was an invaluable experience.” AM, 2019
“Definitely I can say that I feel more hopeful and I have more energy to invest in what matters most for me in life.” AT, 2018
“I can’t thank Richmond enough for everything that he did for Olivia – and for me! He has restored her confidence and has taught her good coping strategies for the future. Her hand is now fully functioning, she aced her exams, passed her driving test and has got amazing offers from top universities – all things that 6 months ago looked impossible to achieve with the dystonia.” LM, 2016
