When even the small things are hard – Testimonial

This lovely lady came to see me a few months ago. She’d been in pain a long time and so frustrated with her situation. She only had a few days before they were leaving on a big trip and so we had a tight deadline to work to! She and her husband sat on our terrace, talking and thinking (having one of Emmie’s special coffees!) for over an hour while…

Frozen Shoulder Treatment at Bodyworks Clinic Marbella

Frozen Shoulder

Sadly this version has no princesses or catchy tunes! But with a bit of help you can “Let it go” (sorry I couldn’t help myself!). Adhesive Capsulitis This is when the “capsule” that surrounds the shoulder joint becomes stiff and tense (adhesion). So the shoulder joint becomes “frozen” and painful to move.

If you understand what’s happening within your own body, why you feel the way you do and react the way you do, then you understand why I make the recommendations that I do. And you make an educated decision about how to proceed. Either…

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…

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…

Osteoporosis and Magnetic Resonance Therapy

Osteoporosis – are drugs the only answer?

When is a broken bone not a broken bone? Bones are alive and continually changing – worn out bone being replaced by new.  In fact you get a completely new skeleton every 10 years! Bones have a thick outer shell and a honeycomb mesh inside – when the gaps in this internal mesh become bigger, making the bone fragile and brittle, this is osteoporosis. Surprise! Osteoporosis is often called a…
