Navigating the Journey to Recovery: From “Simple” Tendinopathy to Complex Cases

8th November 2023

At our clinic, we recently had a client with a straightforward case of tendinopathy, and it felt like slipping into a comfortable pair of pyjamas. However, it also made us realise just how much our clinic’s profile has evolved over time. These days, our typical clients often present with highly complex and entrenched conditions, conditions that have defied the efforts of several other practitioners.

By this stage, it’s not just a physical battle anymore; it’s as much a mental one. We find ourselves not just treating their bodies, but taking them on a journey toward recovery emotionally. Often, the rehabilitation itself is relatively simple. It’s a matter of showing the client how to soothe the irritation in their tissues and then helping those tissues regain their tolerance in meeting the demands of daily life.

But when you have a client who has lived with constant pain for months, or even years, it’s not always that straightforward. It becomes a journey of building trust, both in us as professionals and in the process of recovery itself.

Admittedly, not everyone is ready to take those steps towards change. There are times when clients may become disillusioned, especially with long-term injuries, as various factors often surface while we work to unravel the root of the problem. However, for those who have faith in the process, the results speak for themselves.

If you’re living with persistent pain or an injury that just won’t go away, no matter how many professionals you’ve consulted, we invite you to reach out for a free 20-minute consultation. We’re here to guide you on your unique journey to recovery.

On the flip side, if you’re dealing with a simpler injury resulting from a sudden “ouch” moment, don’t hesitate to get in touch either! We love helping you speed up your recovery process. Your health and well-being are our top priorities, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Just as a reminder we’ve spent time helping clients recover from the following sorts of issues: tendinopathy, scoliosis, broken bones, recovery from operations, arthritis, painful cramps, trapped nerves, rotator cuff injuries, neck and back spasm, Plantar Fasciitis, hammer toe, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, sciatica, disc problems. We’ve also guided clients with injuries who also live with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and ME to name a few.
