What is an appropriate training load? (Part 1)

The dichotomy of over or under training has been an evolving area of sports science and medicine over the last 10 years. Imbalances between training loads and recovery have the potential to cause or increase injury risks and as always there is a lot of anecdotal information that can be misleading. There is now increasing evidence with the development of GPS technology monitoring athletes along with various other subjective and objective markers that are providing clearer patterns of potential risks ...

Does lifting with your back straight reduce low back pain?

 

Have you had back pain for a while? Is it worse after lifting? Are you under the impression that you should keep your back straight and brace your ”core” when you lift”?

Well, you might want to think again.

It’s almost part of our culture that you should “keep your back straight” when you lift. However, it’s important to update culture and ask: what’s the evidence for this advice? Well, you may find it surprising, but the evidence for this advice is ...

What do we mean by early stroke management?

In the UK there are approximately 152,000 strokes annually. There are also 1.1million stroke survivors and 76% of these have physical deficits. Stroke remains the largest cause of complex disability in the UK.

The physiotherapists role is to help people reach their full physical potential and maximise their functional abilities to enable them where possible to reintegrate into society.

There is evidence emerging that early physiotherapy intervention following a stroke leads to improved physical outcomes. The Very Early Rehabilitation Trial (AVERT) in ...

History talking is an overlooked part of the treatment encounter, and is often shortened so objective assessment and treatment can be prioritised.

Achilles & calf strain in runners

Achilles problems are the curse of all athletes, particularly runners. They are usually the most severe of lower limb injuries and result in the most training time lost or even cessation of running. The mechanisms of injury are debatable but are usually due to excessive:

  1. Tensile loading – which is the maximum stress that the tendon/tissue can withstand while being stretched before breaking.
  1. Shearing stress –opposing forces.
  1. Hyperthermia – increase temperature in the tissue.

These are the mechanisms but more relevant to ...

Why are we still using core stability exercises?

The term ‘core stability’ has been a term that we as physiotherapists have endured for the last 20 years. Back in the 1990’s a small number of medical articles reported that people with chronic low back pain (CLBP) demonstrated changes in onset timing of certain abdominal muscles. Unfortunately, these findings along with anecdotal beliefs about abdominal muscles led to a revolution and a worldwide industry in promoting core stability type exercises. The fundamental assumption was that weak abdominals lead to ...
