Helen Wynn-Evans, a West Yorkshire PCSO, recently attended the Treatment Centre in Harrogate following an ankle injury during a charity run. Helen was fortunate that she was only put on restricted duties for a couple of days but the pain she was experiencing made it difficult to carry out her daily foot patrol, an important aspect of the job.
Helen shared her experience at the Centre:“After two doctors’ visits and four months of physio, the Treatment Centres picked up additional nerve damage around my knee, which had been causing the continued discomfort, and treated this straight away. While it sounds silly, I didn’t realise how much the injury was affecting me ‘mood wise’, just by someone confirming that I had actually injured myself made a huge difference! Then reassuring me that things do take time to heal and it’s okay to be patient. On top of that, being encouraged to try other activities that I would not have usually considered proved that I still had the mobility to maintain my fitness whilst not causing further pain by pushing myself too much.”
Helen was one of the PTC’s first PCSOs through the door so it was interesting to hear her
comments regarding how she felt being around other Officers: “I think the fact that there is no rank structure at the Centre certainly makes a difference as everyone is an equal. It is a very relaxed environment, which in itself makes a difference in aiding one’s recovery.”
