Reduction and Management of Pain
After an injury, managing pain in your day-to-day life can prove to be difficult. It can prevent you from taking part in certain activities or tasks that are a necessity as well as preventing you from taking part in Sport where the affected area is required. An example of this could be if you suffered from a fracture in your hand, you may not be able to type on a keyboard as well as you usually could because of the pain of the movement in your hand. This could affect your performance at work as well and could leave you with a heavier workload towards the month. Physiotherapy supports you to be able to manage that pain and will help you to bounce back to regularity in your day-to-day life. This will improve the quality of your life quicker and more efficiently. Physiotherapy can help you to manage pain at any scale, chronic or minor.

Your Physiotherapist will set you a number of therapeutic exercises specific for your problem between each session for you to practice at home. A large number of people believe that once they are shown these exercises, they no longer require assistance or help from their Physiotherapists. That statement is false. It is vital that following these exercises you return to your Physiotherapist so that they can analyse the progress of the exercises and can give you additional support. During an appointment following one where the exercises are set, our professionals will check for improvement and continue their treatment. We strongly advise that you continue your treatments until you have fully recovered and do not try to attempt exercises that haven’t been recommended. Doing exercises that have not been assigned by a Physiotherapists could potentially make your problem worse, leading to further complications. This is why it is so important to only complete exercises that have been recommended by a professional. If you are finding the exercises that you have been assigned difficult, our Physiotherapists will find the exact reason why and come up with a better solution to speeding up your recovery.
