Dr Joris Van der Lugt at Bodyworks Clinic Marbella

A surgeon I actually want to recommend . . . .

I know, the idea shocked me as well! Recently I declared 2020 to be the Year of the Hip. Today I’d like to tell you why. Through the mists of time Back when I was a very VERY new physiotherapist I was extremely fortunate. One of my patients was getting a hip replacement! While incredibly common now (over 35,000 per year on the NHS) they had only just started to…

This curious (and clinically important) phenomenon is known as referred pain. I’ve been talking a lot lately…
