Please advice on cost of MRI scan for Achilles tendon on one leg. Thank you
April 29, 2014, 5:38 pm
Hi Richard, as it explains in the article we don’t do MRI scanning here at the clinic. We can help you arrange it if that is what is required. Perhaps it would be best to give me a call at the clinic and then I can help make sure you get the right thing? Thanks, Estelle
May 27, 2014, 9:18 am
Good morning. I would like to know the cost of an initial basic consultation at the knee clinic.
Also, if possible, the cost of each MRI treatment. Thank you. Lynn.

Thats a lovely workout for the feet……thanks a mil……love the idea of the ice bottle, as my feet tend to get very hot. Will try it and let you know how I find it 🙂
July 2, 2014, 9:47 am
Hi Maria, thanks for the comment! I love the ice bottle trick in the summer too, so relaxing after a long day on your feet. Keep those toes wiggling! Estelle

Im in Malaga for the next 4 days and would be very interested in doing the intolerance/allergy test if you could fit me in.

It’s so important for people to understand that inserts and orthotics are not the same thing. I get inserts to give extra padding when I run or ice skate, but I don’t have any major problems with my feet. My brother on the other hand has had orthotics since he was a young child. If he ever tried to work out with just inserts, his feet, ankles, and back would all bother him. If your inserts aren’t helping relieve pain and discomfort, it may be important to go to a specialist to see if you need more than just average inserts.
March 17, 2015, 12:31 pm
You make a great point. There is a world of difference between an insert or generic insole and a medical orthotic. For some people they do just need a bit of something extra, but for many, something a little more is required. A specialist can help you find the right insoles or orthotics for you. That, in my opinion, is the whole point of taking the time to have an appointment and assess someone, so that you can find the right solution for them.
Knee Pain Treatment
May 4, 2015, 3:57 am
I’ve been looking for a knee pain treatment for a long time now. Tried everything I could think of and nothing worked but never thought of this.
May 7, 2015, 1:39 pm
I hear this so often from patients – often by the time people get to me they feel like they have “tried everything and seen everyone” without making any progress. MRT can often be a ray of light at the end of a long and often expensive tunnel. And the results speak for themselves. Maybe you should think about a little holiday in Marbella? 😉
December 4, 2015, 11:22 am
I really enjoyed reading your blog, you have lots of great content. I look forward to reading more posts from you.

That’s a good, simple tip about the wallet. I think I’ll just start carrying mine in my front pocket. I tend to collect a lot of business cards, so it gets big. I don’t want my commute to be painful anymore.
carpal tunnel syndrome in Melbourne
December 18, 2015, 8:23 am
This is truly unique and excellent information. I sense you think a lot like me, or vice versa. Thank you for sharing this great article.
February 1, 2016, 9:09 pm
Very informative post. It’s nice to know what to look for and when you should be worried about frozen shoulder. Thanks so much for sharing!
February 20, 2016, 6:10 pm
I have what I believe to be”carpal tunnel syndrome”. It started with a pain in my wrist which I couldn’t allocate to an injury. I had pain in my hand and forearm at night which would slowly ease during the day but reoccur at night. It has eased a little but I now have an inability to clench my fist in the morning and a tingling in thumb and two forefingers all day. I have heard a cortizone injection to the tunnel itself will “cure” it. I do a fairly repetitive job as a gardener and I think this may have brought on the inset of it.
Can you help? Do I need a doctor? Will this improve in time? It has now been 2 months.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Pizarra, Andalucia, Spain.
February 23, 2016, 8:51 am
Thank you for getting in touch.
From what you’ve said it does sound like you have compromised the nerve that runs from your neck to your fingers and hand. However there are a LOT of other junctions along the route before we get to your wrist that we would have to investigate.
Cortisone is an anti-inflammatory and would, therefore, reduce inflammation (and pain) where it was injected. However the effects usually only last about 6 – 8 weeks and then the symptoms return, often worse as you have been “ignoring” the problem and continuing on as normal.
The short answer is yes, I can help, we would need to do a proper, clinical assessment to determine where along the chain the problem was coming from and then look at the options to resolve it.
It’s unlikely to go away “all by itself” as nerve irritation can linger without help.
Perhaps give me a call on 952 883 151 or drop me an email for more information?
Take care, Estelle

Driving can cause a lot of back pain if you are sitting incorrectly. I would highly suggest trying to follow these tips, because having to deal with the pain is not pleasant. You can always go to a physiotherapist to help take care of it, I have heard nothing but good things from those who have.
April 20, 2016, 5:42 am
Thanks for taking the time and talking about orthotics too many people tend to criticize the notions about orthotics and what can be done with it. However, I think that inserts are the best choice for foot pain relief.
April 23, 2016, 8:34 am
I am guilty as I work in this manner. I should start practicing proper posture. Thank you for posting about this; I am enlightened.

Hi my name is Ayfer, I am 42 years old, I have been suffering for the past 2 years with ilio tibial scatica, do I go to a gp for a good thorough understanding of my symptoms, or do I need to go to a podiatrist or pyshiotherapist? I live in Melbourne,Australia, and I hope i can find the right help for me.Traveling to Spain will not be possible. Thank you for listening.
April 26, 2016, 12:57 pm
Thank you for getting in touch!
I would strongly suggest that you see a physiotherapist, especially in Australia they are highly trained and very competent (you have some of the best physios in the world!). They will be able to do a full assessment and then, if needed refer you to a podiatrist for orthotic support.
You can also use Formthotics (a New Zealand product) if you can’t get an affordable pair of tailored orthotics – http://www.formthotics.com/ If you contact them directly, mentioning my name (I’ve used them for a long time!) then they will be able to point you in the right direction of someone locally who can help you.
Best of luck, and I’m always here if you fancy a long flight!

I have been attending a knee specialist in Dublin with regard to a torn cartilage sustained during a bout of jogging last August. Surgery is planned for the 13th May. I would be delighted to meet Dr Lepistö and listen to his suggestions. Would it be at all possible to get an appointment today (Tueaday) or tomorrow (Wednesday) as I leave early on Thursday morning.

How refreshing. It is so rare, even in the vast online community, to see any kind of discussion around chiropractic care or physiotherapy as a remedy for migraines. We do use chiropractic care (including cracking) but we have also started to incorporate Magnetic Resonance Therapy, and we’re seeing great results.
Keep up the good work. You’re doing your community and the world a great service by offering natural remedies to chronic migraines.

Hi, when I sit on the floor with my legs forwards in front of me,my legs are appear bent as everyone said. But for me I already straightned them! I noticed the back of my knee and my calf did not touch the floor. Can using these exercises help realign my legs? I never had injury or surgery of legs before. I am also flexible so tight hamstring shouldnt be a problem as I can do the splits. Thanks!

Hello……loved your info on working with breast conditions. Have you ever tried and / or heard breast cupping……wondering if that would be similar?? It’s working with the lymphatic system as well. Anything you can share I’d appreciate it……Thanks
June 23, 2017, 12:01 pm
Hi Barbara, I don’t know much about breast cupping as a technique, there are many different ways of activating the lymphatic system – some more effective than others!
As with any medical treatment always check that they have proper scientific studies to back it up and are properly qualified and insured to treat you (just in case!).
Take care and good luck,

Hi. I am wintering here in Nerja Spain. I am from Ottawa Canada and have Parkinson’s. As part of my physical therapy program I attend three sessions a week. I use a variety of exercise tools including work with an exercise/balance ball.
I would like to buy a balance ball for my exercise here I n Nerja. I am continuing to have 2/3 sessions per with my trainer. I have searched the internet and visited local shops in Nerja but have not found a place that sells these balls.
Would you know of a shop in the area that sells these exercise balls? I am prepared to travel into Malaga if I can get one.
I thank you for your help.

Very interesting. I’m a 65 years old female, a retired osteopath from UK. I am constantly being told that I look much younger. I try to excercise and eat healthily, but I have a few aches and pains which a sometimes unbearable . Would like to know if you have a clinic in the uk or if there is a similar aproach in health fitness as yours. If there is, I will be heading there immediately.
Keep the good work, it sounds amazing.
Mrs N. Cargill
March 23, 2018, 3:49 pm
Thank you so much Mrs Cargill for your kind words!
I am sure there are many clinics in the UK with a similar philosophy, I know both David Butler and Lorimer Moseley have trained many UK practitioners of many different professions. Unfortunately I don’t know any that I could recommend personally near you.
We will still be here if you ever make it to Spain though!

Do you do treatments for cervical spondylosis? It’s treating the referred pain I get down my arms and hands as well as my neck. I used to do a lot of resistance training (weights) but am unable to do that any more. I also used to cycle a lot but can’t hold my neck up now without a lot of pain. I’m 60 yrs old and have had this condition for about 7 years.
August 13, 2018, 11:38 am
We can indeed treat cervical spondylosis! I will reply via private email with more details.

Interesting article re neck manipulation/stroke risk.Apart from cranial osteopathy and massage how do your osteos solve neck problems? Thanking you
September 3, 2018, 11:36 am
We are mainly a physiotherapy clinic so don’t have any osteopaths (just cranio sacral).
Therefore we use a wide range of evidence based techniques which don’t include spinal manipulation of the neck. Massage is one of them, there are a wide number of other mobilisation techniques which focus on muscle, myofascial and neuro mobility within manual therapy, there are also a broad range of electrotherapy techniques as well as home management. It depends on what is best suited to the patient, their history and current mobility levels.
Sadly many people believe that massage and spinal manipulation are the only tools available – there is a HUGE range of other physical therapy techniques, both manual and electro, which can be applied depending on the requirements of the patient.

Hi! I am a therapist in Oslo, Norway. I have been working with Bicom for almost 20 years. I travel to Spain in the winter time and want to be there more often and drop the cold and hard winter in Norway. I’m looking for a clinic near Marbella, known to Bicom, who can think of a colleague who can take patients for Bicom testing and treatment. I am also representative of Regumed and Bicom in Norway. Feel free to hear from you if you know someone who would like a cooperation.

Yes I m wondering the same thing. The back of the knee not touch. Could it be a function of the shape of the calf and hamstring muscles and not an indication of a bent knee? Would looking at the front, quad, knee cap and shin be a better measure of straightness for some people
August 19, 2019, 11:47 am
Hi Alexander and SamSam,
For some, if you have a very developed calf muscle (think professional sports person!) then yes, there may be some interference with putting your knee straight onto the floor.
For the rest of us, while there will be a small gap underneath the knee, the back of the knee should be straight. The muscles can create an optical illusion but this is why your physiotherapist has tools to check!

I have been diagnosed with fibromialgia in 2017 already, but they need someone to say is it possible the car crash caused the fibromialgia and eye problems I now have since that crash.

which exercise is best to helps in reducing in back pain?
September 20, 2019, 10:05 am
The honest answer is the best exercise for back pain is the one that you do! Find one that is comfortable, enjoyable and that you can do on a regular basis. There is no right or wrong way to exercise your back! Go easy, work so that you are comfortable and give your body a chance to adapt.
And make sure you are enjoying it!
Movement is the best, anyway that you like!

what is the root cause of tinnitus and what are the effects of tinnitus if we have suffered from this?
January 17, 2020, 1:55 pm
Tinnitus has a wide variety of root causes, it’s why a detailed medical history is so vital to any treatment.
The effects of tinnitus vary depending on the intensity and how much the noise interferes with everyday life.
We’d probably need a more personal conversation to be able to give you more help.

Hey i am a 35 yr old fisherman and have always had mild forms of tinnitus here and there since teenager but usually when coming back from work(on a fishing boat,so always some sort of a noise) to quiet home it would disappear pretty quick and maybe pop through a day here and there for few minutes,however during qaurantine it came on 1 day in 1 ear and has never left. I did have a bit of a bad neck and went to a masseuse and the pain went wuickly but had no effect on my tinnitus,nor did I expect to. But reading about what you said I thought I should mention it

I am a US based physical therapist with more than 20 plus years experience and I used to own my own practice as well. I am looking to moving to the south of Spain and I am wondering if my US license would be easily transferrable and if you know this would support a self employed / entrepreneurship visa route to getting Spanish residency. Just exploring my options. Not having to start from scratch and having the option to build your own clientele within an already established business is a great idea. Aside from my doctorate degree in Physical Therapy, I also have a business degree (MBA) from a top US university.
