RAF Centenary - Celebrating 100 years

RAF100 – Military Training!

So, in case anyone missed it, I trained in the RAF. This was/is a big deal to me, without that opportunity I couldn’t have become a physiotherapist at all. The fact that the training I received, the people I had the opportunity to work with, were so unbelievably excellent is just the huge dollop of icing on an already fabulous cake! And this year, on April 1st, the RAF turns…

Golden Oldies - enjoy life longer at Bodyworks

Twinkles in your wrinkles!

Now many of you are familiar with me and my minor obsession with Prof Lorimer Moseley but he also has a wonderful partner in crime called David Butler who I was lucky enough to train with, many, many moons ago when I lived in the UK. In fact I would go so far as to say that his training played a major role in the kind of physio I am today.…

Vionic Summer Shoes 2018

They’re here!!! This summer’s range of sandals and summer shoes. We spent quite some time oooooing and aaaahing over this season’s range. I’m definitely having a philosophical discussion about just how many shoes one physio (who basically lives in trainers . . . ) actually needs! Each and every shoe and sandal has an in built orthotic with Vionic’s newest biomechanical innovation. Incorporating a deep heel cup, a contoured arch…

Achilles Tendonitis - 10 things NOT to do

10 things NOT to do if you have Achilles Tendonitis

Or any other tendon issue in your hips, knees or ankles for that matter! In every joint tendons attach muscles to bones. They most resemble a rope – lots of strands altogether. So they can (and do!) fray and get inflamed, just like a rope they can get rubbed and pulled and tend to get hot and bothered when that happens! But, they can and DO heal albeit slowly. They…

ACL injuries and what to do

ACL Problems – the quickest way back to your sport.

ACL issues are common in many athletes, professional or keen amateur – sudden twisting, over extension, falls, a bad landing or sudden stops . . . these can all cause ligament injuries. And only 1 in 3 patients return to their sport. That seems to me a worryingly LOW number. What is the ACL? A ligament is the fibrous connective tissue that joins bones together in a joint. The ACL…
