The Pain Points Series ~ what is pain?
#upandrun 2019 is raising awareness of the problem of pain via a series of marathons and ultramarathons. Further, 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 recent blogs written by Richmond, ‘The Pain Points’ so that you can begin understanding your pain. 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.
