Are you suffering from Back pain?? Back problems affect 80% of people at some time in their life and is a tremendous problem in modern society. There is no specific reason why some people suffer with back pain more than others. Back pain can be acute or chronic, which may reoccur and become very painful.
There are many types of back pain which include :
2. Disc herniation
3. Facet joint sprain
4. Muscle ruptures
5. Lumbar insufficiency
6. Sacro-illiac pain
7. Paravertabral trigger points
At current the health and fitness industry is booming but are you exercising and moving correctly?
Biomechanics and faulty movement patterns such as poor lifting technique, repetitive loading without rest, poor posture are just a few risk factors that can expose your back to injury.
Don't live with pain, come in and see our Sports Therapist Karla for an assessment and diagnosis of your back pain.

💥CI Injections & Plantar Fascitis💥
👨🏻💻The purpose of this study was to compare the combination of corticosteroid injection and physical training to each treatment separately.
🧠This was a single blinded randomized controlled superiority trial conducted in 2013–2014 with a 2-year follow-up, recruiting 123 patients. 90 patients were randomized to 3 groups: (1) 3 months strength training and stretching (n = 30), (2) corticosteroid injections with monthly intervals until thickness < 4.0 mm (maximum 3 injections) (n = 31), (3) combination of the two treatments (n = 29). The main outcome was improvement in Pain at function on a 100-mm VAS score and in Foot Function Index (FFI, range 0–230) at 6 months.
💪🏻All groups improved significantly over time, but the combination of corticosteroid injection and training (strength training and stretching) had a superior effect at all time point.
🗣The authors suggest that the best treatment for plantar fasciitis is the combination of corticosteroid injections and training (strength training and stretching).This combined treatment is superior both in the short- and in the longterm.

Prescribing Training & Competition Load.
Evidence is emerging that poor load management with ensuing maladaptation is a major risk factor for sports injury. The limitation of data to a few select sports and athlete populations, combined with the distinct natures of different sports, make it difficult to provide sport-specific guidelines for load management.
Scientific monitoring of the athlete's loads is key to successful load management, athlete adaptation and injury mitigation in sport.
Psychological load management
Psychological load (stressors), such as negative life-event stress and daily hassles, can significantly increase the risk of injury in athletes. Clinical practical recommendations centre on reducing state-level stressors and educating athletes, coaches and support staff in proactive stress management.
Monitoring of injury
The use of sensitive measures to monitor an athlete's health can lead to early detection of symptoms and signs of injury, early diagnosis and appropriate intervention. Athletes' innate tendency to continue to train and compete despite the existence of physical symptoms or functional limitations, particularly at the elite level, highlights the pressing need to use appropriate injury monitoring tools.

Kicking off this day doing what I love, empowering people to take control of their body and rehab plan, one whiteboard at a time 👊🏻 Real questions is do my patients love them as much as I do ... 😂 #youwillthankmelater
💪 Leg Pull In Prone Level 1 💪.
Can’t Plank? This is a great way to start developing some scapulothoracic stabilisation, increase your upper body strength, and some ab work too 💪 and will help start to develop into a full plank.
Start in 4 point kneeling, knees under hips and hands slightly forwards from the shoulders. Push through your toes and gently hover the knees off of the ground. Hold for 10 seconds.
Make it more difficult by lifting one arm or one leg up. Use a foam roller underneath your hands or toes or hold for longer 💪💪.
I use this exercise with patients who need to take more weight through their upper or lower limbs after injury (shoulder dislocations, tennis elbow, wrist injuries, cartilage injuries, arthritis of the hip or knees). Working on stability for the neck or shoulder blades. Getting those core muscles working a bit more. Fantastic exercise 💪 💪.
Anyone can exercise #physio#physiotherapist#physicaltherapist#plank#pilates#exercise#function#movement#homeexercises#health#prevention#injury#rehabilitation#performance#core#corestability#abs#shoulder#tiffanyandco#arthritis#workout#stability#rehab
