Optimal Load. Y'what what?!!

The catchphrase in physio and strength and conditioning at the moment is ‘optimal loading’. I can see you switching off already but hang with me a second as this could be the game changer for getting your injury better and preventing it from happening in the first place.

Leaking more than just sweat on your starjumps?

Right ladies, how's the new year exercise regime going? I only ask because sometimes with all the excitement of getting fit you begin to realise new problems are surfacing. When you increase your impact work or simply increase the time you are exercising it's common for ladies to report some unwanted stress incontinence (leakage).

To sleep, perchance to dream

So, you’ve found yourself with back or neck pain, and you’re actually ok during the day. However, two hours after going to bed at night and you’re in pain again. How is that possible when you’ve literally just been lying around?

Seven Super Ways To Keep Exercising This Winter

As the nights are drawing in and the mornings are just as gloomy it is so much harder to do exercise on a daily basis. The obvious option is to join a gym, but here are some other simple tips to keep you from piling on the pounds and losing all those health benefits you gained from working hard all summer.

5 tests to tell if Santa's bringing you new trainers

Shh… 7 weeks today is Christmas eve, and maybe, just maybe if you have been very good this year – there will be shiny new running shoes waiting for you under the tree.

On a serious note – most people start running or increase their running as a new year’s resolution, and in the Sporting Joint clinic there is a significant increase in running injures caused by poor footwear. We grab our shoes, put them on and start exercising without giving it a second thought, but this is leading contributor to foot and leg complaints.

We all know we need to replace our trainers like any footwear but how do we know when to do it? A hole in the sole or a toe sticking out the upper are obvious clues but there are other signs that may be missed.


Do you do your vegetable exercises?

Every day I see people who love to do a specific sport.... running, cycling, swimming to their hearts content. And none of them want to do anything else, because they love their sport. And why wouldn't you? 

The problem is that if you love Macaroni Cheese, and all you want to eat is Macaroni Cheese every day, the reality is if you don't eventually start eating some vegetables, you'll get scurvy!!! 

Five tips for people who 'hotdesk'

Hot-desking has become a fashionable phenomenon in this day and age. It's a nice idea, but in reality it's leading to a lot of people being in pain or discomfort as they don't make sure that their desk position is right for them, as they'll only be there for the day!

What is Reflexology?

Here, our resident reflexologist, Joanne Lee, tells us all about what Reflexology is. If you've never tried it you should definitely have a go... Without me telling Joanne anything about me, she immediately picked up a couple of things in my body (I had a sore stomach at the time, and she told me why!, and she also commented on a previous shoulder injury I'd flared up, also without knowing anything about it), I felt really relaxed afterwards and had the sleep of my life that night. I'd definitely recommend giving it a go! x Kate
