Posture and stability training for teenagers

These drills from The Running School (R) , have great potential for improving the trunk and lower limb strength and stability in a range of age groups.

I can see this style of exercise being particulary effective and engaging for teenagers. JS Physio MSc

Shoulders benefit from hands-on physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal –

Physiotherapy News: 25 September 2014

Shoulders benefit from hands-on physiotherapy
Steroid injections and manual therapy are equally effective in relieving shoulder pain, say researchers who compared these two common treatments.

But patients who had an injection went back to their doctor more often than those who had had physiotherapy.

Daniel I. Rhon, of Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas, and colleagues studied 104 adults of working age. All had been diagnosed with shoulder impingement syndrome, which covers a number of common injuries causing shoulder pain.

The volunteers were randomly selected to receive either a single steroid injection or a course of manual physiotherapy.All were also given exercises to do at home. The injection group had the option of up to two further injections during the following year, if necessary. The physiotherapy group received six half-hour sessions over a period of three weeks.

Both groups enjoyed a significant improvement in their pain and disability, both after treatment and during the following year.   But by the end of the year, 60 per cent of the injection group had gone back for more treatment, compared with 37 per cent of those who had manual physiotherapy.

One-Year Outcome of Subacromial Corticosteroid Injection Compared With Manual Physical Therapy for the Management of the Unilateral Shoulder Impingement Syndrome: A Pragmatic Randomized Trial.

Keen to hear about running lessons

None! As I feel all the service and advice given was great!

Fabulous effective physio – Thanks KL

John was great for treatment, coaching and advice. I would have really struggled to run 26.2 miles without his help. Thanks!

Can’t think of anything.
17/8/2011 10:08
Outstanding – I have used many therapists both here and in London. It’s been a great “find” to get a depth of knowledge and shared concern for a really optimal outcome right near my work in Bristol. I will certainly be recommending but maybe not quite yet to my race colleagues!
13/8/2011 3:49
Much more thorough explanation of both problems and treatment given than I have ever experienced before.
12/8/2011 16:46
Very happy just keep up the good service level – Sometimes have problems with appointments running to time.

Good overall treatment and feedback, it’s really useful having appointment times outside of working hours
11/8/2011 10:07
Don’t give my running buddy too many improvement tips!

28/4/2011 13:21
I was really pleased with my treatment and care. No improvements needed. I will definitely go back if I need to.

Service is fine, booking appointments is easy.

John is the best physio I have ever seen

Excellent – many thanks – haven’t had any problems since

Really happy with the treatment. i struggled to get time off work otherwise i would have had a few more follow up appointments.
29/3/2011 22:27
Unknown condition but John still took time to write a letter to my doctor recommending I get referred to a hospital. Thank you!
29/3/2011 21:13
Gave me a brand new neck/back?!?
29/3/2011 18:04
It was very good I am attending aqua fit and over 50 circuit training classes, when I get the chance and slowly improving. Many thanks.

An exceptional experience with outstanding results! Lizzie has regained almost all movement in her arm and shoulder without pain. – She would benefit from a follow-up appointment as suggested, but as her problem was worsened due to the length of time it had gone untreated – it was inevitable that she would experience some pain in undoing the problems that had developed as a result.
At the moment Lizzie can’t be persuaded to come back for a follow-up appointment as she is wary of any more pain even though it was explained to her that the worst is over! She is only 13 so is not able to see the ‘no pain no gain’ situation she was in and she feels back to normal so it’s off her radar, as it were!
Nonetheless there can be no doubt that John’s skill has enabled Lizzie to return to the very active life she led before the injury and diverted the situation from becoming intractable. Many, many thanks!
