The Pain-Free Mindset –
7 Steps to Taking Control & Overcoming Chronic Pain
Are you ready to take back control & overcome your pain?
Pain management is a complex process. Typically, pain control is managed by medications including powerful painkillers such as those under the Opioids umbrella; the broader group of pain-relieving drugs that work by interacting with opioid receptors in your body.
With mounting concern in the UK regarding unnecessary prescriptions and a country facing a crisis in Opioid addiction, taking action is a must. We know that opioids like morphine or fentanyl rarely work in chronic pain – or did we? The number of prescriptions handed out to patients in 2018 was a staggering 141 million (Telegraph, UK).
We are told to assume, and believe that surgery will ‘fix’ the problem. However, 1 in 4 surgeries will fail to achieve a pain-free outcome. Patients continue to suffer and, in some cases, go on to be worse off than before.
So, surgery rarely solves the problem. The number of surgical procedures performed on average per year across the UK is approximately 4.7 million. This means that the number of people every year with chronic pain is a concerning 800’000!
The powerful approach in The Pain-Free Mindset, where NHS pain consultant Dr Deepak Ravindran brings his 20 years of experience to offer you an effective set of techniques that will help take back control and overcome pain.
Currently, there is no effective cure for chronic pain within the present medical care system – a hard fact to stomach. With mindset management, tips and tricks, inspirational stories, and a wealth of medical expertise, Dr Deepak Ravindran is set to cure pain, his way.
