When helping children and young people with sports injuries, it's important to remember that children are not just little adults, and this is something that is often forgotten or overlooked. A child’s physiology and psychology are different, and these differences are important in sports medicine and sports injuries, in the assessment, diganosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of sports injuries in children and young people.
Although the wider world has largely stopped using face masks and other forms of PPE, as Sports Therapy is a close contact service with a high duty of care to all our patients, we have NOT been advised that we can stop using PPE. And from a personal perspective, I feel that the higher levels of infection control achieved with PPE are worthwhile continuing for the longer term, even for more common infections such flu and the common cold. As such, I will continue to use PPE for the foreseeable future, and I will also continue to ask all patients to wear face masks for all Sports Injury assessment, therapy and rehab appointments.
Healthcare cash plans are insurance policies that instead of covering for treatment of acute medical conditions, help pay for the cost of routine healthcare such as going to the dentist, opticians, physio or in some cases, sports therapy and sports massage. You will be required to provide a receipt to your plan provider in order to claim reimbursement, and I am happy ro provide this.
