If you’re experiencing pain – whether it be from an accident, a sports injury, or just sitting in an uncomfortable office chair all day – you might have had physiotherapy suggested to you. There’s a lack of awareness about it in the general public, so many people believe that they have to put up with certain aches and pains as a natural result of aging or lifestyle. However, all pain which involves joints, bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, or nerves can usually be treated with physiotherapy, and significantly lessoned if not cured completely.
There are many common complaints that people don’t seek therapeutic help for, mostly because they don’t know such things are treatable. Headaches, for example, are the bane of many lives, but the mainstream consensus is that the only cure is painkillers. However, a skilled physiotherapist will be able to diagnose a cause, such as nerve irritation in the upper neck.
Neck pain, lower back pain, sciatica, jaw pain, and sports injuries are all similarly common issues which can also be diagnosed and treated through physiotherapy. So no matter how ‘normal’ it might seem, if you’re experiencing frequent or chronic pain, you needn’t grin and bear it.
Some practitioners care more about booking patients than helping them get better. To this end, they treat their patients in busy cubicles, use impersonal machinery, and offer little to no help outside of these sessions. But at Get Better Physiotherapy Centre, the focus is on comfort, education, and detailed, long-term plans to alleviate as much pain as possible. The insured and experienced therapists believe in a hands-on approach, which is personalised to every patient. This means you will have step by step guidance that extends beyond your treatment at the clinic, to ensure that you remain pain-free in the future.
