There are 2 parts to every story and pain is no different. In this blog I will be telling you the secret every clinician doesn't want you to know.

Have you ever had that recurring pain? You know the one where “you’ve slept funny”, or “pulled something again”. Have you ever caught yourself saying those types of things? Well I'll let you in on an industry secret… they’re not true. You haven’t slept funny, or picked something up wrong or tweaked a muscle. There's a reason your symptoms keep returning, and get this, you can stop them!

Have you ever heard the expression “The harder I work, the luckier I get”? Health is no different. It’s no coincidence that when clients first come to see us they “sleep funny” 3 times a week and wake up with a stiff neck. Then after 1 chapter of care they no longer “sleep funny”, better still they begin to sleep great, “better than i have in years” they tell us. In life there is no such thing as coincidence. 

So what is the best kept secret amongst healthcare professionals? You can prevent recurring aches and pain from happening. 

“How do I do that?” I hear you scream. Don’t take no for an answer. Speak to your healthcare provider and ask them, “Instead of coming back in 2 months when my pain has returned, could I see you more often to ensure my pain doesn’t return?” Don’t let the scope of your clinician dictate your health and happiness. 

If you go to buy a car and the car dealership doesn't have the spec and quality you want, do you buy a car you're not happy with? Or do you go down the road, to a better dealership, where you can have the best car you can afford? 

“I know I really wanted a brand new red Ferrari that can do 0-60mph in 3.4 seconds, but this 2002 Toyota Yaris with a tape deck is the best this dealership has, so I suppose I’ll have that then” … said nobody ever. 

 

Don’t put up with aches and pains when there’s a solution out there. Don’t limit the health and happiness of your future because that’s all that has been offered. 

Instead ask your healthcare provider what can we do together to ensure these challenges don't come back, and if “Nothing” is the answer. Go to the dealership down the road and buy yourself that Red Ferrari instead of settling for a beat up Yaris.
