Living with pain on a daily basis can be physically and emotionally
exhausting, not just leaving you in severe discomfort but also
influencing your mood and overall sense of wellbeing. There is an
overwhelming amount of information out there on what to do, or
not do, and so much advice that it can be hard to know where to
start, so we’ve put the following resource together.

It also includes 3 posters you can print out
If you suffer from chronic pain, you’ve probably at some point been told that you’re supposed to stay as active as possible. However the thought probably makes you cringe, especially when sometimes, just getting through the day at home or work is hard enough. This is where a physical therapist can help. They can give you a personalised strengthening and exercise plan, and help you learn how to manage your daily life and reduce pain through certain treatments.
When a pain becomes chronic it can have far-reaching effects on your life; affecting your sleep, reducing activity levels, impacting on work and social life, causing fatigue and mood alterations, and even causing severe disability. So, how can regular physical activity
reduce your pain and improve your quality of life?

A very professional service, from online booking through to aftercare, Richard certainly knows his stuff. He is very thorough in assessing the whole body, not just your injury. His aftercare advice is also excellent. Highly recommended.
