why you should ignore traditional medical advice!
Every week, thousands of people sprain their ankle. Most do it at sport, some walking down stairs or on uneven ground.
Here’s a typical story we hear as Physiotherapists, almost every week.
Low back pain is one of the leading causes of disability in the western world. It affects up to 25% of Australian adults at any point in time.
More than 90% will be pain free in 6 weeks. A minority of back pain sufferers have back pain that persists more than 3 months and causes more marked lifestyle changes.
The medical term for “runners knee” is Patello-Femoral Pain Syndrome. Pain is usually felt at the front of the knee with running, stairs and sitting.
One in 20 teens and one in 10 adult females suffer from Patello-Femoral Pain. Pain lasts for a year or more in 1/3 of people.
