The repercussions of improper treatment stretch beyond the discomfort of undue pain. Those who have had to endure this unfortunate occurrence often have to contend with a loss of earnings due to protracted periods of absence from work. In many cases, time away from work can have psychological implications, as you grow increasingly frustrated with your predicament. Depression and anxiety issues can arise as a result of extended periods of absence whilst in excessive discomfort. All of these factors can result in the need for counselling to help you to recover.

The right treatment
Many people visit osteopaths with lower back problems, and it is widely recognised that osteopathy is the most successful treatment for this particular ailment. There have been cases, however, where misdiagnosis by an osteopath has meant the wrong area has been treated, leaving patients in more pain and discomfort than they were in initially. All osteopaths must have received a sufficient amount of training (generally a four-year science degree that is very similar to a medical degree), and along with this they must be proven to adhere to all health and safety regulations and must conduct themselves in a respectable and professional manner. Any inconsistencies in the above stipulations can lead to an investigation as the result of a personal injury claim against the osteopath.
In order to find out your rights during the claims process, Accident Advice Helpline can provide the information you may need if you are receiving counselling. In cases of this type it is common for treatment of a rehabilitative and therapeutic nature to be ongoing. It may be possible for our lawyers to recoup the expenses that a patient is being forced to pay if NHS treatment is unavailable. Other costs may also be covered by the personal injury claim. In order to understand more about the process involved in a variety of different case studies, Accident Advice Helpline’s website contains a range of useful information.
