Pain is the largest global health burden. Those who suffer persisting pain will understand why, as the impact of pain creeps into every corner of your life. Fortunately we have a far greater understanding of the science of pain now, and hence increasingly effective ways of tackling the problem.

My background is in pain neuroscience and physiotherapy. I have also studied rehabilitation and general nursing, and the blend of these four disciplines has led to my modern approach to dealing with pain, and in particular chronic or persisting pain. The treatments, the rehabilitation strategies and pain coach concept have been created on the basis of the latest sciences and my experience in healthcare for over 20 years.

The treatment, training and coaching programme

I focus on working with people who suffer persisting pain. This is not limited to musculoskeletal pain, but any chronic pain problem, for example irritable bowel syndrome and migraine. Together we comprehensively explore how you have come to be in a state of persisting pain, identify the pain mechanisms and the factors in your life that influence the pain. This creates the opportunity to tackle the pain at a number of levels. This is important as we know that pain is multi-system (pain involves all body systems) and multi-dimensional (the dimensions are physical, cognitive and emotional; these interact and are not exclusive). To fully address the pain problem, all of these factors must be considered, which is why your programme is detailed and bespoke according to your needs and circumstances.

Change your pain and live your life

Change your pain and live your life

You may have decided to deal with an on-going problem or you may have tried different approaches before. Whatever your start point, the over-arching aim is for you to understand your pain and to learn how you can overcome the problem with a range of strategies, treatments, and training. The programme is built for you, allowing you to become your own ‘coach’ so that you think clearly about your pain and make decisions that lead to long-lasting and transformational changes to your life. You will be inspired and motivated by the work we do in your sessions to take the healthy choice, creating a sense of wellbeing so that you live a meaningful life.

About Specialist Pain Physio

Specialist Physiotherapist & Pain Coach

In 2006 I started the Specialist Pain Physio Clinic concept in London and Surrey to deliver innovative, neuroscience-based physiotherapy to tackle chronic pain and injury.

The treatment, training and pain coaching programmes are based upon the latest sciences and understanding of pain. The biopsychosocial approach that I use is the contemporary way of addressing persisting pain and suffering — considering the biology, psychology and social impact.

About Richmond

I am a Chartered Physiotherapist and registered with the Health Professions Council. Originally training as a Registered General Nurse, I developed an interest in pain whilst observing the varying responses in recovery after operations. I continued to train as a physiotherapist, I have a further degree in Sport Rehabilitation and a Masters Degree in Pain Science. My passion is in providing the best journey for you by using the latest therapies for chronic and complex pain. Seeing and hearing about your relief from symptoms, your development of healthy habits and sustained change is my aim for you.

Outside of the clinic, I write and talk about how we can globally change pain by understanding it, communicating about pain accurately, creating a definite plan and how to implement the plan in the most effective way.

I am part of the editorial team for the Physiotherapy Pain Association (PPA), a member of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), The Royal Society of Medicine and the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.
