#174 Become Pain Free and Take Control of Your Health with Dr Deepak Ravindran

23 Nov 2022

My good friend Deepak is back on the podcast today speaking with Sakina. I had the most wonderful conversation with Deepak on the podcast before.

Dr Deepak Ravindran is a boundary spanning ‘upstreamist’ with a trauma informed approach to pain practice. He has over 20 years of experience in Pain Management and is Clinical Lead in Pain Medicine at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in the UK. He is also one of the very few consultants in the UK who holds a certification in musculoskeletal, pain medicine and is board certified in lifestyle medicine. Longcovid, Pain Medicine and Trauma informed practice are subjects that Deepak is passionate about and today Sakina chats to him about:

  • DIY vs DWY medicine
  • Sleep and it’s impact on chronic pain
  • Setting the circadian rhythm, sunlight and caffeine
  • Making complementary therapy more accessible

He hosts the PainSpeak podcast and is the author of the Best Seller “The Pain Free Mindset” released in 2021 and it’s by far one of my favouroite books. It’s aimed at patients suffering with pain but it’s also immensely useful for all healthcare professionals in understanding all the recent advances around pain management in a trauma informed manner.
