Our clinic Your Health Sport and Spine has been located in the Dural area for almost 10 years and our new venture Dural Health kickstarted at the start of 2021.
Even prior to this Dural and the local area has always held a special place in my heart as I went to school up the road at Redfield College. We’ve been able to grow over this time into a clinic able to provide a raft of healthcare services including physiotherapy, chiropractic, exercise physiology and dietetics. Like any small business we are only successful via the support of the local community and without you, we simply wouldn’t exist.
The recent lockdowns and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on a lot of businesses and families around the area so our team and I want to be able to give back to the community that has so often supported us. To help the local community who has so kindly supported us, we would like to offer our Physiotherapy and Chiropractic services at no cost to those who are currently out of work, or have lost their job due to this current lockdown. We can provide 2 sessions to each person affected to help with any injuries and make sure it does not get any worse.
Don’t Let Injuries Hold You Back.
Injuries suck! There is no doubt about it. One of the most common things we hear around the clinics in Dural is, “I’ve got X but I wasn’t sure whether I needed to see someone about it. This thought is really common, your life is busy, the kids, need to be here, there and everywhere and you don’t really have a huge amount of time to spend on yourself anyway.
So we have 4 simple questions for you:
1. Have you had the same injury 2 or more times in the last 6 months?
2. Is it affecting your sleep?
3. Is it having a significant impact on what you can do at home and/or work?
4. Has it been going on for more than 2 weeks?
If you answered yes to any of these questions it’s probably a very good time to get in contact with us at Dural Health or Your Health Sport and Spine
Not every injury needs something done about it right away and a lot of the time these things have a habit of sorting themselves out after a week or two. However, if it really is taking a toll on what you do or keeps coming back
Stay well, stay safe, and we
will get through this together!
It’s time to take control
Clinically we can break down patients into two groups when it comes to muscle and joint pain injuries.
• Passive Copers
• Active Copers
Your passive copers, generally look for therapies and strategies that are done to them, ie massage, painkillers, hot showers etc. It places control of their health on other people or things. Whilst your active copers as the name would imply look for more active approaches to managing their pain, for example, they might go for a walk, or find some exercise that helps their injury. If we look at the outcomes for these two groups The active copers fare much better, stay injured for fewer periods of time and are less likely to be injured again.
In other words, don’t let something or someone else control your health outcomes, pop into the driver’s seat and take control!
So at the end of the day, the take home message is simple:
• Don’t leave it too long
• Take control of your health
• Find a clinician you can trust
