My background is a blend of over 20 years experience in pain neuroscience, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and nursing. The culmination of this experience is the approach that I take to chronic pain as a specialist pain physiotherapist.
You don’t need to put up with the suffering. Understand your pain and learn how to get back to living your life with practical strategies and specific training.
My vision is a world where we understand pain, and hence communicate about it and deal with it effectively.
Understanding pain (UP) is a pain awareness campaign that I have co-founded with Georgie Standage. The aims are to raise the profile of the problem of chronic pain, the largest global health burden, and to send out a new message: you can overcome chronic pain with the right knowledge and skills. We will be providing the latest information and thinking in pain science, creating a way forward for the huge numbers of people suffering across the world. For further information, please call 07518 445493, read Georgie’s story, and follow @upandsing on Twitter; www.understandpain.com
