  • Melissa Benoit had a terminal lung infection, she waited an unprecedented 6 days without lungs whilst waiting for a transplant. This left her muscles unable to even support her head, but thanks to physiotherapy she can now walk again…

  • It’s easy to talk generally about rehab, ‘strengthen x,y and z’, improve movement control etc but we don’t often expand on what this means exactly. This is a brief look at an exercise programme I used recently for a patient with Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome.

  • The idea of using an exoskeleton to enhance a human body has been around for a while but for many reasons they are impractical so how about exosuits? 

  • Although sports injuries occur through a variety of tissues and in different areas of the body, they do possess common denominators; namely pain, trauma and soft tissue involvement. As a result of these common denominators so to speak, physiological factors, such as the inflammatory process which influences healing and recovery, are also shared. Acupuncture as a modality has been shown in a variety of studies to positively influence pain and inflammation without significant side effects. This makes it an ideal intervention when managing sports injuries.
  • Victoria has a long history of medical complaints including significant lung disease and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (severe hypermobility). Prior to her involvement with PhysioFunction, she had been hospitalised over 200 times with the latest admission lasting nearly nine months. During this period, Victoria had developed profound muscle weakness and required a team of four physiotherapists to help her stand and walk with the aid splints and a frame, and Oxygen. She had lost her sense of “midline” and balance. 

  • In May 2015 Gary, a 42 year old professional golfer, had a fall from his bike. He had no obvious injuries except for some shoulder pain the following day. A few days later, whilst in the pub with friends, Gary collapsed. He suffered a severe stroke, paralysing his left side.
  • Kinesiology tape is the generic, non-branded term for elastic tape made of tightly woven elasticated cotton and nylon fibres. It is worn on skin in an effort to reduce pain, aid injury recovery, and improve movement. Kinesiology tape has enjoyed a meteoric rise in recent years. Many of the world's top athletes have been seen wearing it, and it has become common place in most physiotherapy and chiropractic clinics.
  • Andy was told he was as good as he was ever going to get. Neurological Physiotherapy and Andy's sheer determination proved otherwise.
  • Golf Injuries...

    23 Aug 2016

    Golf injuries are usually a result of the collective effect of factors such as incorrect stance, poor posture, a weak or over-tight grip, idiosyncratic swing mechanics and untrained or overused muscles. The cumulative effect of these characteristics make it difficult to isolate one overriding factor.

  • The FHT is pleased to announce that sports massage has been added to its Accredited Register, which is independently approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, a body accountable to Parliament.
