Falling for you….

23rd January 2023

It’s that time of year!

Pavements, roads and paths are slick with ice, mud or half rotten leaves. Falling can be embarrassing at the least, painful for most and life changing for a few. Typically now is the time that we start seeing fractures, dislocations and sprains from falls. So if you, or a loved one, has fallen over recently and is struggling with pain and / or injury, then please do get in touch. We’re here to help guide you through all phases of recovery.

We regularly get shoulder dislocations in the clinic due to falls. Some were partial, others were pretty major occurrences that involved surgery and long term rehab. It’s not just the trauma of the actual injury, but the pain, worry and fear of getting it diagnosed and treated. Some client’s come to us are really traumatised by the setting of a dislocated shoulder! So rehab is not always that simple.

Other clients are recovering from broken ankles, legs, or arms and wrists. Often, once the bone’s declared healed, clients are left to their own devices with no clear idea on how to get their bodies moving again. 

So if you’re struggling to find a way back to normalcy after falling over, then please get in touch for a free 20 minute consultation!
