Yes sometimes. Our success measure is not freedom from pain but that you can live well, purposefully and meaningfully and the majority of people will change their pain experience or have an improved quality of life.
Your case history and assessment may indicate that your condition is not suitable for treatment or needs further investigations. With your agreement you will be referred for appropriate help elsewhere and a referral letter will be written.
With some people we agree a trial of three treatments and if no progress is being made we will agree with you to refer for alternative treatment or investigations. We always aim to help you have a greater understanding of your symptoms and the different aspects that may be causing those symptoms.
If you do not make progress with treatment we will not continue.
We support people to reach and maintain their goals, not providing endless ineffective treatments.
