Pain is like getting lost in a Forest
Have you ever gone into a forest?
Did you find your way easily?
Did you stick to the path?
Did you follow the signs?
Or did you end up in the thick of it and get lost?
Pain and chronic pain can be just like getting lost deep in a deep, dark forest….where the more you hunt for answers the more confused and ‘lost’ you become.
You end up going around in circles, thinking you’ve found a way out, only to end up back where you started again.
My purpose as a physio is to be your guide.
Hack through the undergrowth, find you a path you can follow, re direct and re route if it gets a bit scary and crazy and your footing is loose, and guide you back onto the right path.
When we have back pain or body pain, it’s a bit like playing around the edges of the forest.
We may lose our way a little but we still see the exit, we’re not straying too far from the path, and we can still “get out”.
Chronic pain is where we have gotten a little lost. We ask for directions, look at the map (maybe Dr Google) and end up a bit further in after a couple of wrong turns.
We may lose our footing and slip over the edge as we try new paths (different management choices) and as we slip further we end up deeper until we see no way out.
We’ve ask for help, sent out the distress signal but we are going nowhere fast.
We can be that guide that leads you out.
We’ve done it so many times that we know the different routes you can take.
Sure, some can take a short cut, some may need a major detour because they have gone so far they need to back track, others just want a slow steady pace they can manage some are in a hurry and have a deadline so will push harder.
We can do whatever you need and whatever you’re ready for.
We can go slow on the bits you’re worried about and pick up the pace on the straight paths.
You just need help finding your way.
And the help you’ve had before only got you in deeper.
We will find YOUR path.
You don’t need to stay lost.
If you’re ready for your forest guide, to find you way, we’re ready to navigate.
