Pain Relief & Management

Joerg Kuehn

(Executive Coach)

I absolutely loved the clear diagnosis and explanation provided by my therapist as it helped me to understand how I could contribute myself to ensure the pain reduces. Denis helped me to develop a dedicated muscle training program, based on which I was able to go back to play football regularly only a few weeks after I had visited PhysioActive.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I tell the difference between soreness and pain?

An activity that places an unaccustomed load on your muscles may lead to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). This type of soreness develops as a result of safe, microscopic damage to your muscle fibres. During this time, your muscles may be tender to touch and feel tight and achy. Movement may be uncomfortable but DOMS should only last 3-5 days.
In contrast to muscular soreness, pain can be experienced with or without an activity. This may feel sharp and could be located in your muscles or joints. A pain may linger without going away fully even after a period of rest. This may be indicative of an injury.

How does Physiotherapy help to relief pain?

Your physiotherapist can provide pain relief through a variety of treatment techniques, such as:

Shockwave therapy
Dry needling
Manual therapy
Clinical massage
Exercise therapy
Thermotherapy & Cryotherapy
Taping & Strapping

Should I see a doctor or a physiotherapist for my pain?

In the case of musculoskeletal pain/injury, a physiotherapist will often possess a more extensive set of skills and is able to offer immediate treatment.
Should your pain not fall under our expertise, we can also refer you to our network of medical specialists, ensuring that you get the best care.

Is pain a normal part of aging?

We often assume pain is a normal part of aging that we just have to learn to live with but this is not true.
Our bones may deteriorate over time due to wear and tear, typically in our hip, knees and feet. However, chronic pain that exists every day for at least six months could be very much due to other factors such as lifestyle choices.
Pain is not normal, nor is it a part and parcel of life. Get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan today if you suffer from pain.

What happens when I ignore pain?

A pain may sometimes signal something worse so it is always best to have it checked.
Chronic pain can also impact your quality of life when you stop doing things that you enjoy, e.g. playing sports and hanging out with friends.
Take charge of your pain and live a pain-free life you deserve today.
