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!) I thought I’d follow up with more detail about the physio route, as that’s my personal preference (obviously!). All backed by modern science I should add.  Images aren’t necessary unless there’s something odd (we call them red…

The knee-back connection - is your knee causing your back pain?

The Knee / Back Connection

Your body works as a whole unit. A team. And that “work” of moving you forward still needs to be done even if one part doesn’t function that great. So another area picks up the slack.
