    Hi PhysioBob Thanks that information was useful - I think I'm going to stick to doing more cardio. Doing low resistance training sounds like a good idea too, I'll try that. I do deadlifts as I find its the single excercise which builds the most muscle for me but I'm finding it causes too much fatigue so I'll try lighter resistance excercises. Thanks!

    Hey guys, I began my search for a physiotherapist in Toronto mainly because of constant headaches, shoulder and back pain, generally attributed to the stress of my job. This chronic pain in neck and shoulders cause headaches and infrequently a loss of mobility in my neck. More importantly, it is affecting my quality of life. It was my family doctor who suggested me to do physiotherapy treatment in Toronto to get rid of my chronic pain. What is the average cost of physiotherapy treatment in...

    Thank you. The process does seem quite daunting when starting, so I get what you mean about not getting it up and running till now. But once you do start, it won't seem that bad, just gotta keep consistent. Hope you get through it soon! Best of luck to you!

    To asimjaved, Many thanks for taking the time to send a very detailed reply to my post - some great pointers in there to hopefully guide me in the right direction. I am determined to get through the registration process this time hopefully now after a few failed starts in the past. So any help is honestly very much appreciated. I am a bit of an oldie & actually over 15 years qualified now so I will check that out with the board thanks. And yes I just purchased that e-book 'Getting Registered...

    Hi SonGoku, thanks for posting again on the forum. I do remember your original one back in Dec 2019. I think that you will feel fatigue in different ways when you compare cardiovascular work with resistance training. The work the heart muscle in very different ways. Let me explain a little more. When you work in a cardiovascular way without too much resistance (e.g. jogging, cycling, swimming) the heart gets a nice pre-fill of blood which it pumps out against the bodies normal resistance to...

    Hello I've been doing deadlifting the past year and its caused me too much fatigue/setbacks in the end. So I switched to cardio instead. I heard that deadlifts cause a lot of CNS fatigue and was wondering if I did weight-training exercises that didn't cause as much CNS fatigue like chest press or leg press which are more targeted for building muscle, would I fare much better? My aim is to get into better shape/lose fat and I've always found building muscle works the best way for me (before...

    I suffer from chronic back pain and have tried many methods so far. After several years of microwave heating packaging, I found a electric neck-back heating pad that can control the level and duration of the thermotherapy. I got a comprehensive heat treatment from neck to shoulder and the entire spine, which is what I need. I hope to help you!

    If you have peroneal tendonopathy, then you know arch supports and anti-inflammatories (like ibuprofen 600 mg three times daily) are used. Given that you have reduced inversion, you might have some joint hypomobility for which a lateral calcaleal glide has been found helpful: Hensley, Craig P., and Alicia J. Emerson Kavchak. "Novel use of a manual therapy technique and management of a patient with peroneal tendinopathy: a case report." Manual therapy 17.1 (2012): 84-88. Novel use of a...

    Sounds like you have either a rotator cuff injury, shoulder instability, or posterior labral injury (the click in the back) you need to be assessed by someone with orthopedic interest and they are now using prolotherapy for theses conditions. Bertrand, Helene, et al. "Dextrose prolotherapy versus control injections in painful rotator cuff tendinopathy." Archives of physical medicine and rehabilitation 97.1 (2016): 17-25.

    Hi, I'm a physio from Pakistan and I'm in the final process of compiling my application to send it to the New Zealand physio Board. There's a page on Facebook called "Getting Registered as a Physio in New Zealand", which you'd find very helpful. The person who manages that page, Lisa Rushton, has also written a short book called "Getting Registered as a Physio in New Zealand (A Guide For UK Trained Physios)". I'm not sure if I can post any links here, but you'll find the link to buy it on that...
