Making an Appointment
A frequent question we get asked by patients is "When should I make an appointment".
Occasionally this may not be as obvious or clear as it may sound. Pain is often the primary motivator to make an appointment. But what if the pain comes and goes..?
Problem keeps reoccurring?
If your problem keeps returning or if you are experiencing painful problems in different places, clearly there is an issue that needs to be treated and resolved. Don't leave it any longer.
Never had a problem?
If you have tried everything to ease it and this has not worked don't leave it for more than four days, as maybe it's not going to go away.
Some people experience a low grade ache all the time. This may be due to a long term injury that never got resolved.
Other people often understand the importance when they require treatment during training sessions.
In these situations we often find patients like to have a regular appointment. These appointments vary from each individual from once a month to every 6 to 8 weeks. I have a method of working out this frequency, I suggest how often, discuss it with you and together we put the management plan into place designed to meet your individual needs.
These may be sudden and acute while participating in your sport. If you are having problems i.e you can't walk properly or in constant pain then contact us for advice. If you have a reoccurring problem after you have participated, i.e later afterwards or the next day. This means there is something mechanically not right. You need to do something about it before it stops you and becomes a more long-term problem.
