Episode 39 - Richmond Stace - I Want To Break Free
My guest in this episode is Richmond Stace, a leader and pioneer on pain management, a fellow Podcaster and a soon to be published author. Richmond is uniquely qualified in pain science, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, sport science, nursing and coaching and in his own words his goal is to "help people understand their pain and move on to shape a positive future”. Getting to that point has been an interesting and fascinating journey involving time in nursing, four University degrees and youthful stints packing sausages and being a failed Private Detective. 11 years at University is a clear sign that Richmond is an inveterate learner and its one of the reasons why two years ago he started #upandrun where he runs an Ultra Marathon every month! That's one heck of a way to find out more about yourself, your body and pain. His musical choices are all around the theme of "Freedom" and whilst he didn't pick the Queen track “I Want to Break Free” it felt like an appropriate title for someone who is passionate about people being themselves, finding their own way and living their own lives. He is someone who walks (and runs) the talk and is genuinely inspirational. If you would like to get in touch with Richmond or find out more about his work then these links should help: Twitter& Instagram : @painphysio Facebook : @thepaincoach Web : http://www.specialistpainphysio.com/ He also recently started a Podcast called "Positive Encourager" We are both fans of and have benefited from the work of Mike Pegg and you can find more details on that at https://www.thepositiveencourager.global/mike-pegg-the-art-of-strengths-coaching/ In the episode I talk about the work of actionforhappiness.com of which I am a big fan.

On this episode I interview Richmond Stace the Pain Coach and one of the co-founders behind Understand Pain. Richmond is a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in treating and coaching people to manage and overcome their pain. His purpose is to improve the world by reducing the suffering caused by chronic pain, measured by people living their best lives. His vision is a world that understands pain, which would mean less suffering and more living. Where it began Richmond started out training to be a nurse before he progressed into physiotherapy. Through working with people who were suffering, he made a conscious decision to focus his time and energy on pain. He explores with his clients (and his audience) what he calls a 'complete' approach to pain and suffering. He treats the person as a whole; combining biology with psychology as he sees them being dependant of each other. Richmond talks about the importance of mindfulness but not from the point of having a chilled out life, being calm or sitting cross-legged on a cushion! For him, it's about becoming familiar with the way you think, how that's embodied and becoming skilful with that and being able to let go of things that are unhelpful. Fascinating and inspiring, Richmond is on a mission to change the way we think about pain. Here's some final words of from Richmond; "When you understand pain, you're starting to change your pain. Understand your pain to understand your potential."

In this episode, I speak with pain physiotherapist and pain coach Richmond Stace. Richmond became interested in the area of pain while working as a nurse in his younger years. He went on to obtain a rehabilitation and science degree, a physiotherapy degree and a Masters in pain science at King's College London. He then jointly set up Understand Pain – a social enterprise that aims to help society have a greater understanding of pain and what can be done to improve our lives. We speak about how our perceptions inform our reality; understanding why people react differently to the same experiences; narrative influencing pain (and life); acceptance is not giving up and focusing on what you can do (not what you can’t).
Richmond Stace - beyond the biomedical model of pain
