6 Things to Consider Before Scheduling an Appointment:
- Understand what has happened.
- Acute injuries need attention immediately.
- Chronic or continued pain that’s not new can be handled slower.
- Is it serious?
- Don’t over or underestimate the problem. A rolled ankle IS something we can deal with immediately in the office even though many people assume it will take weeks to heal.
- Be honest with yourself. Acknowledging pain is not admitting defeat.
- Remember that procrastination IS a decision to delay the solution.
- What time frame are you working with?
- If you have an important event coming up, have a 24-48 hour plan for treatment.
- If you are in the off season, you have more time to experiment with self-treatment
- If it is a new injury and you want to observe it for a bit, use these three measuring tools:
- Frequency of pain.
- Intensity of pain.
- Duration of pain.
- Can you self-treat the problem?
- Do your research and see if there is something simple you can try to resolve the problem.
- Set a time frame for resolution of the problem.
- If you can’t solve the issue on your own, seek professional advice.
- If you need an expert, choose a provider that matches your philosophy
- If you are only concerned about a quick fix, pick a solution that matches that goal.
- If you want long term resolution, be prepared to modify your schedule temporarily.
- Ask questions and work with your physician to come up with a solution that matches your needs.
