When a new patient comes into Geelong Spine Centre, we hear the "story" of their symptoms. It often contains a worsening of pain over time, or a pattern of pain coming and going for years.
In this "story" of their pain, we often hear a list of things a patient cannot do because of their symptoms. It consists of more and more things that they can't do, out of fear that the pain will return, worsen, or "skyrocket".
Before getting treatment at Geelong Spine Centre, patients have told us that due to the fear of pain, they did not:
bend, lift, walk, use the stairs, use the computer, empty the dishwasher, drive the car, sit during meals, cut the grass, golf, surf, garden, etc
The list goes on and before you know it, these patients can do almost nothing.
They tell us how they tried to get used to it, and how their spouse and family learned this list of "can'ts", but nobody was happy about it. Constantly remembering all the things you can no longer do is never fun.
At our Geelong clinic, we have helped many patients who thought they could never find relief for their symptoms. We have many rehab techniques that can be very effective in reducing pain and symptoms without drugs or surgery.
Contact Geelong Spine Centre at 5229 9888 to see if we can help with pain that has been limiting what you can do and keeping you from living your life. We have your pain relief!
