The first step to injury management is doing all you can to prevent an injury in the first place. Our Osteopaths and Physiotherapists are not solely focused on the assessment and treatment of injuries – they are also experts in the musculoskeletal system and in the prevention of human movement disorders.
We cannot stress enough the importance of working towards preventative health and the ways in which our team can assist with this. Here are four reasons to see us at Osteohealth before you get injured.
1. Prevention is better than a cure
It’s a cliché, but it’s true. Don’t wait for pain before attending to your health. You can make the choice to work towards preventing declining health and tissue damage by working with your osteopath/physiotherapist now, before pain strikes. Acting sooner rather than later means better outcomes in a more timely manner.
2. The absence of pain does not mean the absence of injury
The danger with using pain alone as a reliable indicator of injury or sickness is that more often than not it’s a delayed sign – by the time you feel pain, damage may have already been done, making it harder to treat. Pain is generally not a sudden reaction but the result of a problem that builds over time.
3. Good health is an investment
Just as you would invest time and money into maintaining your vehicle, treat your body with the same care. Consider your body a vehicle that is engineered for a long life of peak performance and needs regular maintenance with your osteopath or physiotherapist to avoid breakdown.
4. Optimal health is better than just being okay
If living an optimised physical lifestyle is important to you, then consider the meaning of wellness as ‘performing at your best’ rather than just feeling okay or without pain. While most of us now enjoy a longer life, if you are committed to optimal health you have the opportunity to make it a better one.
