Know Pain,

A few facts and misconceptions

Pain is a good thing


Pain is an alarm: It allows us to recognize when we are ill or injured. Prolonged pain however can reinforce neural pathways and increase overall sensitivity. Physiotherapy can help reduce pain and sensitivity and help restore normal range of motion and function. 

It's not always your age


A common misconception is that if you are hurt or sore, it's probably just because you are getting older. This isn't always the case.  These conditions are often influenced by several factors other than your age and should be investigated properly. Pain is derived from several sources including anatomical limitations, context, personal beliefs and past experiences. Education and treatment are the keys to becoming pain-free. 

Pain control


Pain can be disruptive and distracting to everyday life if not properly managed. Suppose you are unable to participate in everyday activities that you normally do. In that case, your pain isn't being adequately managed and it is time to seek help to manage or eliminate the pain that is causing the restriction. Physiotherapy uses exercise, stretching and Strengthening, to restore function and get you back to what you love.  

Masking Verses Fixing


Many people with pain or injury try to manage the pain by ignoring the symptoms or trying to mask the symptoms with painkillers or medication. Often attempting to mask the symptoms without investigating the root cause of the problem results in the symptoms persisting. Physiotherapy is designed to assess the cause and shorten the healing time, returning you to regular activities.

You are not  alone
