  • A ‘stinger’ in Rugby: a transient episode or something more sinister?

    07 Sep 2017 by: Keith Burnett MSc, PGCHE, FHEA, MSTA Lecturer and Practitioner in Sports Therapy

    A 22-year-old male amateur rugby union player misplaced his shoulder in a tackle during the final quarter of a game resulting in his head being laterally forced away from his dominant tackling shoulder causing a stretch of the brachial nerve in the neck, defined as being a ‘brachial neuropraxia’ or ‘stinger’ injury.

  • Running injuries

    06 Sep 2017

    Most running injuries occur in the lower extremity, although upper body injury, as a result of a fall, is not uncommon. Upper body injuries normally occur due to runner fatigue, change in running surface, inappropriate footwear or poor technique which results in a fall and subsequent injury. Nonetheless, most runners tend to report lower limb injury (specifically from the knee downwards) as a result of their running activity. The knee is the most common injured site on runners, followed by the lower leg, foot and upper leg.

  • Treating an injury-prone international rower

    06 Sep 2017 by: Mike Antoniades
    Franki describes herself as an injury-prone international rower who had ‘bashed’ her body over many years.  When she first walked through the doors of The Movement & Running School, she had residual pain in her recently operated hip as well as in her right adductor, lower back and ribs/upper abs -  all of which stopped her from either walking, running or cycling.  As a person who loves to train and do sport, this was very frustrating to her.

  • Is the modern lifestyle sustainable?

    01 Sep 2017 by: Dr Jonathan Bloomfield

    A third of the country now report that they sleep for fewer than six hours per night, and cases of sleep disorders being logged with GPs have never been as high. As the general health of people in the UK has declined for the past 60 years and the NHS has stretched to breaking point, we must ask ourselves if this is coincidence or a sign of a problem with the modern lifestyle.

  • Alex Tait has represented Premiership rugby team Newcastle Falcons for his entire 10-year career. Over the length of his career he has witnessed the development of the professional game, with an ever-increasing focus on making performance gains. To help him get the very best out of his rest and recovery time, he recently bought a Mammoth mattress.

    We caught up with Alex to talk about hard graft, the importance of recovery, playing against New Zealand legend Carlos Spencer, and getting a degree in Chemistry.

  • Sue is the current British 100km running champion and currently ranked number 7 in the world for her event. Remarkably, she has clocked up enough miles to circle the Earth twice . . . and she’s still going strong.
