Visit from Physiotherapist
Angela arrived with a foam neck brace. Rachael felt this pulled her neck muscles painfully and said this would be no good. Angela said she would take it away with her. Angela said she would make an urgent call to orthotics department at B Hospital so a custom-made neck collar can be made for Rachael. Rachael said her hands were also causing her a lot of pain. Angela said to do range of motion exercises on hands and suggested a prescription of pain relief. Rachael declined until all positional remedies had been tried first. Angela said Preston Wheelchair Services would be the best people to speak to about positional remedies. Angela could not give any advice to relieve neck pain, that Rachael is not already trying.
