If you live or work in a remote location, and sustain a musculoskeletal injury, it is important to know when the injury requires more than your own basic management, and where to go for help. Injury management can be more difficult in remote locations, where the desire to act fast often competes with the upheaval and cost of increased travel for specialised services.
Take Flight, Website or Sit Tight? is a 28 page booklet written by Australian Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, Karen Finnin. Finnin lists simple cues to assist injured people to know when their injury warrants travel to a health service, when an online health consultation can be appropriate, or when their own management and monitoring will suffice.
