Osteoarthritis - 5 facts backed by science

Osteoarthritis – 5 facts based on science

In my newsletter last week I went through a detailed description of injections for knee pain which prompted more questions about options. (Don’t forget you can sign up over there on the left!)

Private Air Conditioned Treatment Rooms – why they matter

It’s funny isn’t it the things you take for granted. Things that are so obvious to you that it never occurs to you that someone else might feel differently.

What to do if your knee operations is postponed - with consultant at Bodyworks Health Clinic Marbella

Knee Pain as your knee operation has been postponed?

If you are waiting for your knee operation it can get a bit disheartening. It can feel like limbo – you aren’t getting better, just . . . . waiting.
