Persuading a stubborn old soldier to see a Physio

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone suggest a physio, near Salisbury/Shaftesbury, who is a middle aged man with experience managing stubborn old soldiers?

    My father’s shoulder dislocates too often. He previously saw a young female physio and there was no listening, mutual comprehension or cooperation between them – so he stopped going and gave up the exercises.

    Many Thanks

    if its that often then get him refered to a specialist via the doctor, while physio is meant to build up the muscle and tighten the join it sounds like he needs a suture to hold it in place as its probable the ligament which holds it together is snapped. my brother had this at welbeck and suffered ever since

    you/he can go down to the4 local physio dept and ask to see a specific type of physio if it must be a middle aged man.

    I had similar regards the plate in my wrist, physio said good grip and movement so she didnt see why I was there, she didnt understand the constant pain which led to the plate coming back out again.
