If you’re suffering neck pain then you know far too well the huge impact it can have on your life.
Neck pain hits all the notes… emotionally, socially and economically. Frustrating, isolating and restricting. It can keep you from doing the things you love to do. It can interfere with your ability to mingle with friends or be present with your family. It can reduce your productivity at work or keep you from it entirely. If you can relate to any of this then it’s time to do something about it!
It’s time for you to do what anyone in pain does… Pull out your phone and ask Dr Google!
Question: “Who to see with neck pain?” Answer: A Physiotherapist!
Physiotherapists are elite health professionals. They are highly skilled clinicians and are considered the masters of the musculoskeletal world. Being first contact primary professionals since 1976, they are trained in detecting sinister causes of a person’s pain and have the ability to refer for medical imaging if necessary.
We at 8th Ave Physio are considered integrative physios. This is what sets us apart from other physiotherapists. Whilst we have a strong understanding of the physiology of your injury through years of study and learning, being an integrative physio means considering all of the other contributing factors that may be impeding your health and your injury.
These are the things that aren’t normally taught in universities and textbooks, yet they play such a major role in how you respond to your recovery. Some of these factors include the internal and external stresses you have in your life, what your injury restricts you from being able to do and how these challenges are driving your symptoms. Once we understand this, we can better gauge how to guide you out of pain and back to doing what you love!
At 8th Ave Physio, this patient-centred approach is the fibre that binds us to get you the best outcomes. We take the time in ensuring you get the most out of your experience at our clinic.
The first time you come into the clinic, your integrative physio will complete a thorough assessment of your history, an in-depth goal & value setting process and some additional physical testing.
The key to practising client-centred care is through ‘listening’! Your physio will then provide a diagnosis and detailed explanation of what factors may be driving your pain, followed by a comprehensive treatment plan to recalibrate your body’s environment to heal itself. We will focus on you as a person and try our very best to have you actively engaged in your recovery!
