10 tips to avoid back pain when driving

With Easter / Semana Santa coming many people are driving long distances – either home for the summer or arriving here for the warmer weather. And long distance driving often results in back pain.

6 thing your doctor got wrong about back pain

6 things your Doctor got wrong about back pain

The wonderful, glorious thing about medicine is that it is constantly improving and changing. But it means that keeping up to date on what really works is a job in itself. A British Medical Journal article once estimated that family doctors needed to do 60 hours of reading a WEEK just to have a broad understanding of the changes involved.

And you, the patient, end up frustrated that you keep doing all the “right” things but aren’t making progress. But don’t give up hope! Because it could be that one of these simple changes could make all the difference. Get…

Ankle injury - sprain or fracture?

Ankles – a “sprain” or something more?

Out walking, on the playing field or tennis court, you fall and hurt your ankle. Annoying and painful, definitely. But now what? Feet up on the couch or off to A&E? Fracture or Sprain?
