5 Key Points for a Healthy, home working environment Make up for lost steps Take a break from the digital world Be a creature of good habits Set up to last Take on new opportunities   1 – Make up for lost steps Keeping moving is one of the most essential parts of being a life-long healthy human being.

Why Do I Keep Getting Injured?

Posted by on Jan 26, 2021 in Injury, Pain | 0 comments

Ever wondered why you keep getting injured? More often than not, pain and injury comes out of nowhere and as much as you scratch you head looking for reasons you just cant find one.. We call these insidious onset injuries or spontaneous injuries, as a opposed to traumatic (which may instead result from a fall or motor vehicle accident). To understand why and how these insidious injuries occur we must take a look at a concept known as load tolerance. The phrase “load tolerance” is something that you will hear frequently used in our physiotherapy clinic. But what does it really mean? Load tolerance is determined by two factors , the “load” and the “tissue capacity”. The load (or Loading) refers to the demand placed on the body, it is the intensity of the task that we are doing,...

The 3 Biggest Causes of Pain

Posted by on Jan 21, 2020 in Pain | 0 comments

Back in December 2019 Scott Cook and I decided to record a video on the subject of pain and sensitivity for our patients to view,  what was originally meant to be a 10 minute talk ended up being a 30 minute discussion that was divided into three shorter 10 minute videos. We tried to get inside the patients head and talk in a way that hopefully non-medical people will understand. When someone is in pain there are lots of unseen or an acknowledged reasons for the pain to present itself in the way it does and in many cases to persist for the length of time. In our short physiotherapy sessions it is often difficult to get these points across, so recording them on video allows us to share them with our patients and for the patients to view...

The 3 biggest mistakes people make when treating shoulder pain

Posted by on Oct 22, 2019 in Shoulder, Sports Injury, Uncategorized | 0 comments

We have seen so many sore shoulders this month we have started calling it shoulder month! We see lots of people who have experienced failed treatment or shoulder surgery. However when we delve deeper it turns out that the treatment and rehabilitation provided just hasn’t been good enough, or that the person has simply given up too early as they they thought it just would not get better. Shoulder problems are tricky to fix and people often dive into surgery too soon (mainly because they have given up on the normal rehabilitation and healing process). However with the right approach and a great deal of patience shoulders are very fixable…The most common shoulder problem we see is Shoulder Impingement closely followed by (and often as a result of) is Capsulitis (“frozen shoulder”).  Dan has created 2 short videos on the subject matter which are listed below. If you or...

FIFA World Cup Fever

Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy, Podiatry, Sports Injury Prevention, Pilates, Healthy Backs   From the die-hard football supporters, to enthusiastic players and children in the park, it’s unlikely that you’ll manage to escape the hype that comes with the FIFA World Cup. Even if you’re not an all year-round supporter/ player you’ll probably find yourself drawn into watching a few matches during the football event of the year. Football has the power to bring the nation together. Like the Olympic games, it is a human experience that can bring many nationalities and cultures together with no other commonality than the joy of sport. Football is an international language. FIFA suggests 270 million people play soccer which equates to 4% of the world’s population. But if you take into account the casual kick arounds in the parks, or on the dusty patches...
