So…. You think you over pronate…. Relax! It’s no biggy!

 

I have lost count of the number of referrals and patients that are booked into my clinic because they think or have been told they excessively pronate.

 

Let’s clear a few things up...

The Derbyshire Sporting Joint is sponsoring the medals for the Ramathon, Derby's half marathon this year on June 5th 2016. To celebrate this, I thought I would collate some of my general tips for those involved. Next month you will hear from our expert biomechanical podiatrist for her footcare tips and ideas. Kate :-)

A physio, writing about her own real life rehab programme for chronic injury problems!

I’ve been a qualified physiotherapist for over ten years now and I have heard literally thousands of people during that time talk about their ‘really bad back pain’. And to be honest, I never really got it. Patients would complain of severe, unremitting back pain that was there constantly. There was always a little part of my brain that thought, there is no way that this person has pain 24 hours a day.

It was with much enthusiasm that many of my patients came in saying they had seen the BBC programme: Horizon: The Truth About exercise (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01cywtq) in which most people who saw the programme gleaned that they only had to do 3 minutes of exercise, once a week and all would be well. In summary  the guy did 3 minutes of High Intensity Training a week, and it changed his INSULIN SENSITIVITY. His aerobic capacity did not change as he is a ‘non-responder’ to exercise. That is all. What the programme did not claim was that 12 minutes of exercise a month gave you all the other benefits of exercise (and I’m talking 30 minutes of medium intensity exercise a day).

These benefits include:

In my practice probably the most common question I get asked is... ‘how did this happen?’, ‘where did my injury come from?’, ‘why has this happened?’ when really I think the most important thing is that we need to stop it from happening again!

This is my icing protocol for an acute injury. It comes from years of experience working in professional sport, and this had the best results of any combination of icing I could find. It is brutal unfortunately, and sleep is interrupted unless you have an icing machine that comes on automatically.
