Getting to know your pain

Many people like to joke that the niggling aches and pains we experience as we get older are simply a part of getting old. But pain is more complicated than that and it should never become such an issue that it stops you from living your life to the fullest. The body can experience all kinds of pain, from troublesome muscle spasms that keep you awake at night to pain consistent with sports injury.

The more you know about your pain, the better understanding you will have about it, placing you in a better position to help us, help you. Not all of our referrals come through doctors, sometimes patients come to us on their own and this is why knowing your pain is so important.

These are some of the most common types of pain that patients seek treatment for:

Neck pain

Our modern lives are often one of the biggest culprits when it comes to neck and also back pain. Many of us spend hours sitting at a desk, and it goes without saying that the way we sit is often detrimental to our posture and as a result, our muscles get tense and stiff. Neck pain might not be the muscles in your neck but rather a problem radiating from your back. Causes of neck pain vary and along with pain, you might even find that your neck movement is limited.

Shoulder Pain

Discomfort in your shoulder or upper arm can stop you from doing even the most basic day to day tasks. Shoulder pain can be attributed to a tendon, a muscle or even a joint, and each will feel different. This is one of the more common pain complaints and the reasons for this pain may vary. For instance it could be a traumatic injury or an injury caused by overuse.

Back Pain

It’s generally only once you’ve hurt a part of your back that you realise just how often you use those muscles. Back pain is without a doubt the most common type of pain and the various regions of the back can represent different types of problems. This pain is not the type to show up out of nowhere, so if you have back pain it’s important to think about what activity could have led to the pain you are now experiencing. Back pain will likely require plenty of rest as well as physio to heal up completely and because you are using your back for just about everything you do it can feel like it is taking ages to heal.

Regardless of the type of pain you are experiencing, accurate diagnosis followed by the right treatment provided from our experienced physiotherapists in Pretoria East, will have you fighting fit.

Why Work with a Physiotherapist in Pretoria?

When in pain, why not pop those pain pills instead of going to the professionals? A lot of people treat the symptoms of the problem without being aware of the cause and pain killers simply mask the problem; they won’t necessarily solve it. So while the pain might be gone for a couple of hours, getting your hopes up that the complaint is now healed, once the effects of the pills wear off, and the pain returns, you can feel more despondent than ever.

It is best to rid yourself of the pain once and for all and the best way to do this is to consult a physiotherapist. A few of the things a physiotherapist can help you with include:

  • Rehabilitating sports or gym injuries as well as rehabilitate the effects of disability and disease.
  • Assist with managing acute and chronic pain.
  • Prevent injury and disease.
  • Promote physical activity, wellness and good health.
  • Improve and maintain mobility independence and peak physical performance.
  • Providing information and education to assist patients in preventing re-occurrence of the pain or re-injury.

The team at Just Physio is skilled at assisting patients of all kinds in their goal to live a more healthy, pain free life. We operate in Pretoria and Pretoria East. Contact us today to book your consultation with a fast and effective physio in Pretoria East.

I struggled with chronic headaches for years and the amount of painkillers I had to take was becoming a health risk.
