When Pain Strikes Whilst Your Chiropractor Is On Holiday

As of the 20th August 2014 I will be away on a London adventure. I have the incredible opportunity of experiencing London chiropractic whilst I am in the city. I will be working out of two clinics, one is in Fenchurch and one is in Highgate. I look forward to writing a little London report for you all – roving reporter style :O)

So, what to do if you have a pain flare whilst the clinic is closed:

  • Use your at home exercises/stretches to try and loosen the affected/painful area off
  • Feel free to call the clinic for advice – I am in clinic until 9pm on Tue 19th Aug and Will is in clinic until 8pm on Thursday 21st and is available for emergency appointments until then should you require one. I will be checking the clinic voice mails each day from Friday 22nd and will return emergency calls – please leave a number so that I can call you back
  • Use Ice – 20 minutes at a time, 2-3 times per day for 2-3 days
  • If you are able to take anti-inflammatory medication – use of over the counter ibuprofen and/or paracetamol
  • If the pain does not resolve with the above it may be worth giving your GP a call for advice/an appointment
  • Travel to London for an appointment with me and have a London adventure too

We hope that you find the above information useful. I’m sure you will join me is wishing Happy holidays to Will who has been an excellent addition to our clinic and has thoroughly enjoyed his first six months in practice. He is making the transition from graduate to chiropractor a seamless one.
