Injury and pain can negatively affect how you feel and what you can do in your personal and working life. If these effects continue over time, they can affect your mental, social and physical health, and ultimately, your experience of who you are and how you fit into the world.
Everyone’s experience of injury and pain is different, and only you will know how it feels and effects you. But we can: listen, help you make sense of what you are experiencing, and guide you through the process required to return to normal life as quickly as possible or to enable you to find the new you that can live a fulfilling life despite any continuing restrictions.
