I hope that one day the clinic can help you or if we already have, that's even better. Sometimes the most important changes that help prevent/ reduce your pain or even improve your daily life do not always require treatment. You may think as I own a business specialising in treatment I am crazy for saying that however, I have a strong belief in sharing knowledge and helping people and this is a core value that I live by. That's why I have created some free information below for you to follow and think about before taking your next step.
Try not to worry.
Whether you have a new pain or have been struggling with your pain for a long time, don't panic. If you have been receiving treatment or information and it hasn't worked, don't let that get you down. If you haven't been doing your exercises, don't feel you've blown it. It is never too late to find the right information, find good treatment and begin your rehabilitation.
Don't blame yourself.
Too often we see patients who are led to believe that their bodies are just simply getting too old or because they are doing something such as work or a sport, that this is the cause of their injury and must be stopped. Getting better is as much of a mind-set as it is physical or biological and let's be honest sometimes it can take a bit of work to get there.
It really isn't too late.
Pain is complicated, however it is becoming far more understood very quickly. Some conditions can become chronic, your body can adapt and become even more prone to pain. However, just as it has adapted to be more prone to pain, it can learn to manage pain better. It's a case of the right information, the right mind-set and in some cases, finding the right therapist to help you get there.
You deserve good advice.
Good advice is still overlooked by so many can be hard to come by, especially if you don't know where to look. We treat people with our hands and the effects do not last forever. Good advice however, can help people for a lifetime and have long-lasting benefits. Great advice gives patients solid foundations of how to understand and control their own pain and reduce the need for treatment over time, this of course saves money.
You deserve first-rate service.
If you do need specialist help in the beginning, it needs to be good, no question. Healthcare costs are rising along with almost every other cost and forking out for therapy isn't necessarily what anybody wants. Your treatment should be effective and advice should be available whenever you need it. You should be getting better and visiting less and less as time goes on until you are able to manage your pain or be completely pain-free.
