Are you experiencing pain? See how we can help
At Sports & Wellness Physical Therapy we love to help people get back to living the life they deserve. Which means a life free of painkillers, doctor's appointments and the inability to do the things you love. When something like chronic pain strikes in your knee, lower-back, neck or shoulders, or if you experience an injury from sport or exercise; we know it’s very tempting to leave it and hope it’ll simply “go away on it’s own” with time and rest… That you’ll wake up someday and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened in the first place - but that’s usually not the case, often the pain ends up worse than it was when it first started.
We also know it’s very easy to reach for painkillers, and take them whenever pain strikes so it eases off fast - but all those painkillers are no good for your health long-term, and do nothing but mask the pain instead.
Or, maybe you’re left feeling confused, even skeptical because you’ve sought advice from other Healthcare professionals, or a Physical Therapist in the past, and nothing they seemed to say or do helped.
Can you relate?
If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. At Sports & Wellness Physical Therapy we hear this all the time… In fact people who come to see us have often:
- Thought the pain would go away on it’s own - but it didn’t
- Paid several visits to the Doctor, only to be told to “rest” and “take some painkillers” - then weeks later go back to see the Doctor again,
only to be prescribed MORE rest, and an even stronger dose of painkillers
- Tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn’t do a thing or aggravated the pain making it 10 times worse
-Thought it would be a good idea to rest because the pain was so bad, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight
- Been told by a family member or friend that “everybody gets aches and pains as they get older” - making it easy to accept it’s “just a part of life”
Any of those sound familiar?
If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book an appointment for a discovery Visit or speak to a Therapist to see if we can help. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next.
