    Hi, what you have experienced must be quite frustrating. Exercise programmes are individually designed, therefore, someone needs to assess you (subjective = what are you symptoms and your goals; and objective = measuring muscle strength, control, cardiovascular aspects, balance, etc.) and can then design an exercise programme for you. This programme will then be tested and adjusted until it sits well with you and reviewed on a regular basis to check for progressions. The people who do this...

    Thanks very much. Yes, I did find that simply tying my belt around that area of my chest worked pretty well but I was thinking that wasn't a good idea long term. I tried it whilst running and it was ok as long as it was gentle running. I have also found that sticking my chest upwards with the shoulders back helps a bit and hanging from a door frame (!). That is trying to improve posture. I also am reducing the time I spend holding things in my right hand (i.e. phone and mouse) and keeping that...

    Hello Fyzzio, Sorry for not clarifying, I am a first-year student from Western Sydney University, aspiring to work as a physiotherapist, the answers collected from these questions will be used for a case study and for myself to reflect based on the answers of a health professional in physiotherapy. The case study is intended to assist with writing a thought-provoking look at my chosen profession through interviewing a current health professional. Through reflecting on the interview...

    Hello! I have shoulders that has been bothering me ALOT for many years. I am pritty sure that it is my lower/middle trapezius that is to week. I have no problem getting the muscles to fire and it feels good when i do Y-raises for an example(the tightness in my upper trap decreases, my shoulders become more even etc). However I never get any stronger and my muscle doesn't increase in size. I either exercises it to much or to little, i never find the balance. I see improvements for a few weeks...

    Hi, many thanks for your efforts. Could you please give a few more details: Who are you? What is the purpose of your research? Who will be the assessor? Which organisation is responsible for handling the information? Who will have access to the information and in which ways will the information be used? You ask for a lot of information that might potentially identify the author (3, 4, 5), how will you warrant anonymity, please? Kind regards,

    (The responses will be de-identified, information is used for an assessment, I would really value your responses, and value your experience in any profession within Physiotherapy) 1. How long have you been a physiotherapist? 2. Why did you choose to become a physiotherapist? What do you find most rewarding about your profession? 3. What was your educational pathway to become a physiotherapist? 4. Can you briefly describe a typical day in your life as a...

    Has anyone here experimented with a rehabilitation ball? I've heard of something new called Playwork and I want to know if it's worth a try. It should be noted that I do physical therapy training for hands.

    Sounds like you have a slipping rib at T8. If pressing it in helps then a rib belt of sorts could work. Trying cortisone or alcohol injections to area might help though the latest thing is botulinum: Botulinum Toxin Treatment for Slipping Rib Syndrome: A Case... : The Clinical Journal of Pain

    32 years old 72kg in weight. I raced road cycling for 3-4 years at a high amateur level. In the end I had to stop because of this injury. After exercising I feel an extreme tightness when I try to extend my right leg into a fully stretched out position. The tension feels like it is in the area between the hamstring and the vastus medialis. I have seen many specialists, had lots of scans but never found the root cause of the problem. However one time a physio did a very deep tissue ...

    I can sleep on my back or my sides and feel perfectly comfortable but if I attempt to lift my lower back, or side even a fraction to shift over then what feels like a muscle spasm right across my lower back comes on unless I quickly back off. It's not something that can be worked through. Sometimes it refers across toward the left hip but that is intermittent. This first began a week ago after one morning when I could hardly get out of bed - as far as I know I didn't do or lift anything to...
