Tip number 3: What about the other 30%?
In order to be more specific we need to talk about different types of pain.
That is, acute pain and chronic pain.
Acute pain is when you break, tear, pop or sprain something. It is usually enough to stop you in your tracks and often results in visible bruising or swelling. Chronic pain is that constant, reoccurring, perhaps more invisible pain like headache, back ache or arthritic pain.
In my opinion the most highly qualified therapists to treat acute injuries are Physiotherapists. This is a generalisation but if you have to rehabilitate a tear, break or are recovering post surgery then physiotherapy is for you.
If you are suffering from chronic pain like headaches or reoccurring back pain, think Myotherapy or Osteopathy. Although Myotherapy manipulates muscle and Osteopathy manipulates bones, both these therapies are great at getting to the bottom of those long term reoccurring pains, just in different ways.
If that niggling back pain still persists, your trusted Physio, Osteo or Myo may in some cases refer you to a Podiatrist to assess your gait and prescribe footwear to help you on your road to recovery.
Finally once you are fit and ready to rock, be sure to introduce your exercise with a quality personal trainer who is willing to engage with your therapist and ensure long-lasting results.
