Pain, Performance, Rehabilitation and Life

Our Symposium this year will focus on pain; with unmissable keynote speeches from experts in the field and presentations and workshops that will enrich your knowledge.
Focussing exclusively on pain and all its forms and manifestations it will be vital for practitioners to help manage and manipulate pain and help people from all walks of life.

Our unmissable range of speakers includes Richmond Stace who is leading advances in understanding and treating pain and has created the pain coach programme – pain neuro-science based coaching and treatment to overcome pain, he has clinics in Harley Street, Chelsea and Surrey.

Richmond will look into the importance of the first point of contact, how we can gain information from the first few words.

We have a range of workshops including "Gold from Rio"- BASRaT Sport Rehabilitator, Hannah Crowley helped Ed Clancy on his road to recovery from a back injury and to his gold medal win at Rio.

Our closing keynote "Pain, the Brain and a little bit of Magic" will be presented by Professor Anthony Jones. Professor Jones is an MSK pain specialist and leads the Human Pain Research Group. His talk will include identifying potential mechanisms for increased resilience to chronic pain and explain how existing therapies may modify these mechanisms.
