Are your injuries ongoing?
Although suffering any type of injury can be painful and frustrating, if your injury won’t fully heal, you may have to cope with it for the rest of your life. For example, many people who injure their back find that they will continue to suffer from back pain, even though the initial injury may have partially healed.
Whilst some injuries may simply leave a weakness or a tendency to suffer the same injury again, some people must endure ongoing pain because of the initial injury itself. In some instances, doctors will be able to provide ongoing treatment which may help. Physiotherapy, for example, can be very beneficial for people suffering certain types of injuries.
If you don’t find that conventional medicine is helping your injury, you may want to try out complimentary therapies, such as acupuncture. Although these aren’t always available to patients on the NHS, many people find that they are useful in dealing with chronic illnesses or chronic pain.
