On the 22 May, 2014 Susan Altham, Physiotherapist attended a course entitled, Serious Injury-Serious Pain presented by Irwin Mitchell Solicitors.

The day was informative providing an overview of chronic pain, key factors to consider in chronic pain management, including discussion regarding the crucial role of full holistic assessment. Treatment options were reviewed and the audience were given legal guidance regarding how these cases are managed and also investigated.

Sue reported “The day reinforced the holistic approach that Neurological Physiotherapists take with their clients on a daily basis. It is key that the individual is seen as a whole when supporting their overall care, to ensure that the best possible outcome for them is achieved. As Neurological Physiotherapists I think that is something we do well’.
