We’ve all been there – you get up from your desk at work, you bend over to pick something up, or you go to do that one thing you do at work over and over. Even though it seems like a simple, routine thing, this time you feel an intense pain. Did you do something wrong this time? Maybe. Or maybe this has been the result of a long line of little mistakes?
Just about everybody has to deal with pain at one point in their life or another. However, some of us have to deal with pain on a regular basis.

There is, in fact, such a technique and an increasing number of physiotherapists are becoming trained in it, sparing their precious hands and their patients’ pain thresholds at the same time.Read more

Many patients with pelvic dysfunction are suffering in silence, not aware that help is available. So we think it’s time that we devoted a little more space to the problems that no one wants to talk about.
Tendinopathies are an incredibly common type of injury, yet they are often poorly understood by the general public. In this article, we take a look at deeper look at tendinopathies – what they are, where they occur and what can be done about them.Read more
