Train Your Posterior Chain for Back Pain!

The posterior chain is a group of muscles that run down the back of your body (neck down to your toes), and work together as a team to keep us upright, jump, lift, and run. Training and developing the strength and endurance of these muscles can help reduce and prevent lower back pain.

Calcific Tendinopathy - When crystals, toothpaste, and bone grow inside your tendons!

Calcific Tendinopathy is one of the more unusual conditions we see, and occurs when chalk like substances start developing into crystals within the tendons of the body.

Moon Boots - One small step for man, one giant leap for foot and ankle injury management!

Moon boots, also known as Controlled Ankle Motion (CAM) boots, are one of the supportive devices our Physiotherapists and Chiropractors use to help manage foot and ankle conditions like fractures, ligament sprains, and even tendon tears. These work by immobilising the foot, and have the advantage over traditional foot casts because you can take them off to shower, exercise, and even scratch those itches!

Stretching your neck not working anymore? Try strengthening it!

Whilst stretching the neck can help temporarily, many people are unaware that strengthening the muscles of the neck and shoulder (with bands, weights, and even head stands) can actually help reduce neck pain and stop it from coming back.
