So many patients have an attitude towards injuries that they will get them fixed one day ? Right now they don’t have time, they don’t have money, or heck it will just get better.
It isn’t until the pain or restrictions has reached a level of daily impact do clients make a move to seek treatment.
Why are we so programmed to be reactive to pain rather than be proactive? We are lucky to be in a country where we have the opportunity and access to many versions of health care yet many are content with pain being a part of their daily lives.
Is it that we get use to having pain? Do we believe this is as good as it will get? Does age stop up from making a change ? So often I see clients who urgently need treatment because an injury or pain has reached chronic levels. A small injury or concern often builds to become a more chronic long term issue.
To take time for yourself, block it out of your day is a self-centred, challenging and essential deed to taking care of your health and wellbeing. Procrastinating health is far easier than having to admit pain and take time to correct those niggles before they build into surgeries.
A pain which could have been a small treatment suddenly builds into a far more serious long term management scenario. Our value for health is scathingly nominal, yet it is the one thing that keeps us doing the things we love.
