With local virus numbers climbing it is not always easy to know when a visit is advisable. Whilst our clinic is as safe as it can be, close contact work can never be 100 percent risk free.
So a good guideline is that an appointment would be appropriate if any of these apply:
You are in pain and feel like it is increasing or you are not coping or becoming very worried about it.
Your condition is stopping you from sleeping.
You are struggling to work or to do light exercise.
You feel that your condition is affecting your mental well being.
If you are unable to access a usual line of support such as physiotherapy via the nhs.
However, if you tick any of these
– You are supposed to be shielding or you have a medical condition that means you may be more vulnerable to severe covid .
– You are over 70 years of age and are not yet vaccinated.
– You are coping reasonably well with your symptoms but feel that you would benefit from professional advice or guidance .
Then we advise that you opt for a telephone or video consultation. Get the help you need without the risk .
If in doubt call and arrange to speak to one of our practitioners for specific guidance.
