Gentlemen, are you bravely soldiering on with an everyday, sports or work-related muscle or joint injury? You may not realise that this strategy could be costing you more in the long term.
We osteopaths notice that men tend to put up with a lot of things, like aches and pains and especially bad backs, and they tend not to do anything until their partners get so fed-up with hearing about it and book an appointment for them. The problem with this is that, firstly, aches and pains tend to get harder to treat the longer you have them and, secondly, that, as good as your body is at compensating for a problem, it can eventually reach a limit and shore up bigger problems for the future.
So, what’s stopping you from getting treatment? Maybe you think you need to be stoical and not ask for help because it will “sort itself out”. If it’s a pain that you’ve had for a while and really aren’t sure what to do about it, maybe your body just needs an expert hand to guide it towards the right direction.
So, in recognition of Men’s Health Week we are offering any man who books an appointment this week a 15% discount on their first and follow-up appointments (worth £95). Who knows, you might end up feeling better than you’ve done for a long time. Contact First Call Osteopaths
