When Should You See A Physiotherapist?

It’s very easy to dismiss aches and pains as the natural way of things and just something we should accept as we get older. It’s also very easy to assume that issues will resolve themselves over time.

And, of course, this is certainly the case from time to time, but it’s important to make sure you listen to your body and pay attention to the cues it gives you, as it’s possible that aches and twinges can get worse and become an even bigger problem, one that may be potentially difficult to sort out.

Physiotherapists are always on hand to help if you’re feeling any kind of physical pain, stiffness or soreness, but it can be difficult to know when to book an appointment. To help, here are just a couple of signs that you may find physio beneficial.

 

  1. Pain worsens with particular activities or movements

If you find that your pain gets worse when you move in a certain way, it suggests that there’s a mechanical problem that needs to be addressed. A physio can help you by providing you with different exercises and techniques to address the root cause.

 

  1. Pain is severe and impacting movement

Any pain you have that’s stopping you from going about normal everyday activities, that’s affecting your sleep or which is preventing you from going to work, a physio assessment can help you find out what’s wrong and advise you on how to restore full function over time.

 

  1. Your pain is constant

When you’ve injured yourself, the pain associated with this usually resolves itself as the tissue heals, but sometimes this doesn’t happen and the pain becomes chronic. Seeing a physio can help ease your pain through targeted exercise and rehabilitation programmes.
