    Hi, welcome to New Zealand. You can take your contract to the Citizens Advise Bureau or to a lawyer to have it checked. Citizens Advise Bureau and Employment NZ have got excellent websites - well worth checking. As a contractor, you are self-employed. I am not sure how this works, but do you have a visum to permit this? Secondy, like pay, the hours and termination clause depend on your contract negotiations. Hours can vary from 'casual' to a regular day. Notice period can vary from 2...

    I moved to NZ for 3 months and finally got a physio offer as a contractor. But the contract stated that 3 months notice is needed if I resign. Do this is a common practice in NZ? Also the number of working hours is 30 hours a week is a legal

    Hi Eric The pain does not start straight away when I'm sitting it gradually increases and this is the same when I'm walking or running the burning sensation gradually comes on. I have tried both methods of stretching and I get less pain when I stretch with my foot in a natural position. Many Thanks James

    Hey, Does the pain increase immediately when sit down or does it come after a while? Is the pain during the actual sitting or can you feel it more when you get up after sitting? When you walk/run, is there any sharp pains or just the burning sensation? When you stretch the hamstrings do you keep your foot neutral? If you try to point your foot down (plantar flexion of the foot) vs. up (dorsal flexion) does that make a difference on your pain? Take care!

    Hey, Glad to hear you're doing better! Just like you said, being in this situation for years, it's going to take some time to sort it out.. Since you're improving I usually go by "if it's not broke, don't try to fix it", what you're doing is obviously working for you. My best tip would be to not forget stretching the other internal rotators (the adductors) along with strengthening the glutes to improve external rotation. Best of luck to you!

    Hello, I am an Italian physiotherapist, specialized in musculoskeletal field, and I am wondering to move to Cape Town, South Africa, with my husband. I know nothing about our job as physio there, so I am there to ask you if someone can give me any useful information about it. Do you know if there is need for physiotherapist out there? And if so, do the salaries are high enough to have a decent life, compared to the cost and quality of life in Cape Town? Would you suggest me any website,...

    Well the noticable size difference in tfls, as well as glutes. And im referring to glute med. Tfl on the left side is chronic in ache/tight and sore, any rotation of my leg forces a TFL contraction. And what ive been doing is serious TFL tissue work. And leg extension and 1 legged deadlifts with kettle bettle as well as monster band walks. The weak TFL is noticeable cause there is next to no TFL contraction on external and internal rotation of my leg. Doing weight internal rotation movements,...

    Hey! Sorry to hear about your issues. Sounds like it could be the biceps femoris acting up. Are you feeling anything on the inside or just the outside? Have you checked your lower back? Considering you’re having problems both when you activate it (walking/running) and when you’re resting it, we might be dealing with some type of impingement process in the lower back that’s causing the hamstrings to tighten up and become irritated. Any numbness/tingling or sharp/shooting pains down the...

    Hey! Sorry to hear about your issues! First off, how have you come to the conclusion that the TFL is weak/strong and that the glutes are weak/strong? Are we talking glute max or med/min? You seem to know what your’e talking about about so I won’t elaborate but feel free to ask q’s of what I mean! What type of work have you been doing with you’re glutes? Having been a powerlifter I find it hard to believe that the lack of external rotation in the left (non operated) leg is due to...

    Hey Joshlaycock, Sorry to hear about your problems. When you say you’re having trouble standing on one leg the next day, is it on the leg on the side you’re having problems or is it bilateral? Are we talking sharp/stabbing pains or more of a dull ache?
