Inflammation

The problem with waiting times is that prolonged inflammatory changes can often make conditions worse.

Further damage

Damaged tissue can progress unless advice and appropriate self management is implemented.

Long term pain

The longer a person has an experience of pain, the more likely they are to develop side effects from pain medication.

...and more pain

Pain sensitisation, chronic pain, stress and anxiety all have there origins in over-use pain medication and delays in the appropriate treatment.

Waiting, really is bad for you.

Why diagnosis is important

Before treatment, it is important to establish a specific diagnosis. Injection therapy for example works to suppress inflammation and therefore for it to be of benefit there must be an inflammatory process at work.

Sometimes the pain experience is mechanically driven. In this situation exercises and tissue mobilisation are essential to restore best alignment, strength and functional movement patterns.

In order to determine diagnosis a clinical examination with ultrasound scan provides a detailed analysis as what your condition is.

Once a diagnosis is established then treatment options can be discussed.

Guided injection therapy

There are many conditions that affect the body and cause an excessive inflammatory response.

When this is identified then guided injections are both safe and effective.

Chris Creaghan strongly advocates that injections are administered under guidance to ensure the medication is injected into the right tissue.

With guided injections there are several types of medication that can be used. Please visit the 'injections' page to see more details on treatments that are available and how they could help you.
