I so enjoy summer!
I really enjoy the warm, dry weather and the long days. To me summer is all about being outside and being active – going for walks with my dog and husband along the river, going for a run in Richmond Park even doing some yoga in the garden. They are all so much more enjoyable, for me, when the weather is fine, and I take it for granted that I can do them. If you are limited in what you can do because of pain doing anything can be difficult, uncomfortable, and extremely frustrating.
I recently worked with a lady that had been told by her consultant that ‘this is it’ with reference to a 2-year history of low back and hip pain she was experiencing. As you might imagine she was quite upset by this comment, and she didn’t want to believe him. When we met, she told me she wanted to be able to play tennis and dance with her children, go for walks with her husband, sleep well at night and be more comfortable when she sits at work. We have worked hard together to overcome and understand her pain experience and now I believe she can enjoy the summer weather in the way that she wants! She can play tennis, go for walks, and she has even started running again. Long term pain doesn’t have to be, and I am passionate about helping people find the pain relief that they are looking for.
