Event description

Description

We all suffer pain, right?

Well actually that is not entirely true.

There are a very small number of people on this planet who genetically do not have the ‘wiring’ for pain. As a result, they have mangled bodies from multiple injuries that they didn’t even know they had! These people prove the point that pain is an important protective response.

I am a sports and exercise physician with over 30 years’ experience and have managed all sorts of injuries in athletes at all levels, and in non-athletes as well. I have also been heavily involved in workers compensation and transport accident injury management.

It was only when I discovered the fascinating science of pain itself, that I could understand why the context of an injury is a far greater predictor of the outcome than the injury itself. This revelation also informed that many standard approaches can be unhelpful. It helps explain why decades of fantastic developments in technology and pain targeting treatments have coincided uncomfortably with increasing statistics of people with chronic pain.

Understanding pain in this way is empowering and improves health outcomes.

That is why I am part of the pain revolution.

‘I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey …’

Come along and see what it is all about.
