    The ultimate aim of neurological rehabilitation is the integration of acquired movement into function and activities of daily living. Neurological rehabilitation is based on the principles that within the central nervous system we have representational neuro-anatomy. Therapeutic approaches aim to elicit and or facilitate desired movements to drive neuroplasticity. For the acquisition of skilled movement repetition and practice is required. Increasingly over the last decade or so Rehabilitation Technology has provided the means for mass practise and repetition.

  • Treating an injury-prone international rower

    06 Sep 2017 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.
  • 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.

  • Is the modern lifestyle sustainable?

    01 Sep 2017 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.

    We spoke to Sue to find out how she first got into ultra-marathons and endurance running, and why recovery is crucial for someone who puts their body through such intense physical activity.

  • Hollie Webb and her GB Hockey teammates shot to fame in 2016 after taking gold at the Rio Olympics in one of the most tense climaxes to a tournament in living history.

  • 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.
