Don’t Wait to Address Minor Aches, Pains and Strains

June 20, 2023

Waiting to address minor aches, pains, or strains can lead to several negative consequences, including:

  1. Worsening of the condition: Ignoring minor discomfort can allow the underlying issue to worsen over time, potentially leading to more severe pain or even chronic injury.
  2. Reduced mobility and function: As pain and discomfort worsen, it can become more difficult to move and perform everyday activities, which can have a negative impact on your overall quality of life.
  3. Increased healthcare costs: Delaying treatment for minor issues can lead to more complex and expensive healthcare interventions down the line, such as surgery or long-term medication use.
  4. Emotional impact: Living with chronic pain or discomfort can take a toll on your mental and emotional well-being, potentially leading to anxiety, depression, and decreased quality of life.

By addressing minor aches, pains, or strains early by seeing a New Life Physical Therapist, you can prevent these negative consequences and improve your overall health and well-being.

New Life Physical Therapists can assess both acute (new) injuries to determine if xrays or other imaging may be needed, provide split or supports, and get you on a path to quickest recovery. They can assess more chronic conditions (ongoing pain) to determine the root cause of the problem and not simply provide a simple cover up.

There are easy access points to be seen early including direct access (no referral needed from a physician), self pay options for those with high deductibles, and telehealth in addition to traditional in-clinic visits.
