A recent study by Nuffield Health (http://www.csp.org.uk/news/2013/12/18/more-50-uk-adults-risk-injury-self-diagnosing-pain-without-seeking-physiotherapy-adv) has revealed that more than half of adults live with unnecessary pain by trying to self diagnose and treat rather than seeing a qualified practioner such as a chartered physiotherapist. Even one appointment to help diagnose your aches can help remedy your problem and avoid it becoming chronic and affecting your lifestyle.
