oa caused by lazyness says physio!
Hello, I've not been on for a while as I've been recovering from a particularly unpleasant vist to the physio. A young lad, certainly no older than 30 was so rude and unsupporting that I am seriously considering making an offical complaint. He sat me down and in a voice loud enough for the other patients and therapists to hear, told me that I had nothing wrong with me, apart from oa brought on because I didn't do enough work and didn't have a job. This he told everyone was due to the fact that I sat and watched TV all day!!! :x He said he if this were not the case then the multipule xrays, mri's, blood tests and physio would work. He said that I was on the cusp of becomeing unable to do anything as my joints became set in a bad posture position, which was responsible for all the problems I have. OA is nothing more than getting lazy as we get older!!! :x I wasn't examined or looked at until I said i'd better just go, if he felt like that. Then all he did was look at me upper body standing, force it into the 'proper' position and tell me to do this 100 times a day for a month and come back . I insisted that I tell him my history of how I'd recovered using physio exerices and gym referral but on going back to work, became ill again and my gp signed me off and works doctor had given me a full pension but, refused to redeploy me as I was unsafe to work in any capacity. Today I am in pain from the position he forced my body into unsure if I'm doing the exoercises properly and feel, afte he read my consultants reports out loud to the owhold rom along with a list of my medication I feel like either I'm mentally ill and an attenion seeker or just a waste of space lazy and work shy. Sorry to rant, just feel so awful husband wants me to comeplain but I'm going to see my GP. Love Sue
