In this post I am trying to highlight the importance of not waiting too long to get help, when it comes to pain, or any health condition.
Many people, myself included, with long term pain, chronic health conditions, often have higher than normal pain tolerance and can often leave things too long before seeking professional help. The problem is that the long a health condition is left, the longer pain is left, the harder it can be to treat, or manage on a clinical level.
I know I have spoken about this previously on many posts and why I am very passionate about early intervention for any health condition, especially pain.
During the last couple of weeks I have heard of people leaving things too long and actually ending up dead because of it. Just today, I have had two patients diagnosed with cancer, after leaving symptoms too long before seeking help. It just hits home the importance of seeking help early for any health issue we all face.
Have a listen to my latest post as to why we should not wait too long to get help.
