Physiotherapy non contact and private - MRT

No contact physiotherapy

The “new normal” starts here! And while many things are back to something like normal there are still many people who are wary about close contact with others, visiting medical centres or hospitals unless needed and wanting more privacy and space. Not all of that sits with our usual image of physiotherapy does it? Picture a conventional physiotherapy session and you probably think hands on contact right? Here in Spain,…

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. And often you don’t get a referral to a physiotherapist or other support and help until AFTER the operation. And if that operation is delayed or postponed because of a crisis (here’s looking at you Covid-19!) then you get stuck.…

Bodyworks WORKS

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…

5 Reasons your knee isn't getting better - Knee Specialist Estelle Mitchell at Bodyworks Clinic Marbella

5 reasons your knee isn’t getting better

Earlier this month I had a gentleman come in complaining of long term (5+ years!!) pain in his knee. He’d had 2 rounds of surgery on the knee with no improvement. During my assessment I found that he had an even longer history of lower back pain and hip pain. So rather than focus on his knee, we focused on his back, I taught him a couple of little tricks…

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. With 3 bones, over 10 muscles groups and numerous ligaments and tendons the shoulder is a hugely complicated…

And today we are going to look at another one of those conditions that can cause similar symptoms – Piriformis Syndrome. This may…
