The Pain Points Series ~ what is pain?
UP’s purpose is to share the facts about pain as we know them right now. There is a huge difference between what is known by science and what is known in society. UP seeks to close the gap.
Below are links to brief articles, The Pain Points, written by Richmond. This will help you start to understand your pain. There is more to know, but this will be an initial step.
Ideally, you will spend time with a clinician or therapist who has specialist knowledge of pain (it is a specialist field). Together you can explore the reasons for your pain, how it is emerging in you and what you can do to shape a positive future.
This is the first step to feeling safer and in control so that you can use a range of skills and practices to move on to living a fulfilling life.
