Welcome to Pro-Active Being
We are dedicated professional healthcare providers.
With our combined years of clinical experience, we have helped many people suffering from injury and pain.
Quite often we hear that people feel disempowered and fearful when it comes to their body aches and pains and that they don’t know what makes it better. We want to show you how you can take control by learning self management strategies that will help to get you out of pain.
We want to inform you about how to self manage musculoskeletal issues. Why…
Research suggests that more than 50% of pain related consultations are due to Musculoskeletal issues. Simply, musculoskeletal refers to muscle and bone. Approximately 80% of adults will experience back pain and approximately 30% of children. To date, most research into chronic low back pain is focused on diagnostic imaging and structural abnormalities of the spine, however the correlation between symptoms and diagnostic imaging is weak. Those with a new episode of back pain, less than 1% will actually have a case where a serious cause requires specific treatment e.g. such as a fracture or disease. Read more here.
To help identify if any symptoms have serious implications or if seeing a doctor or physical therapist is required, watch our Health & Wellbeing Guidelines (Red Flags) video (4 mins) or read the blog here.
The correlation between symptoms and diagnostic imaging is weak as diagnostic imaging can not tell you where the pain is coming from. This means that peoples symptoms are not necessarily related to abnormalities, which is great news, because it means that it is perfectly possible to self manage the majority of pain issues.
