    Hi Barge1003, There is really not enough information to go by. But sharp back pain with coughing may sometimes indicate a lumbar disc related problem or sciatica. Although you did not mention any pain going down you leg which is usually a feature of sciatica-type back pain. I have recently written an article to help people identify if they have sciatica. Either way if this is still a problem no online advice will substitute a visit to a physiotherapist or doctor. Here is the article on...

    About 5-6 months ago (October/Novemberish), I started experiencing a strange, sharp, stabbing (presumably nerve) pain just below my left knee, in front of my shin. I can't pinpoint exactly where it is, but it is roughly a centimeter below my kneecap and 2cm to my left from the knee cap. This stabbing pain was on and off, and was so painful that it would wake me out of my sleep in the middle of the night and I had to bury my face in my pillow to avoid waking my roommate up (I am a college...

    I've had multiple foot surgeries and now have subsequent problems findings shoes to fit or that I can walk in. Therefore, finding a new pair of shoes takes a lot of time, trial, and error. I've almost run out of options, and was hesitant to order on line just because I knew I'd probably have to return them. As predicted that did happen. And though I didn't find a shoe to fit, I appreciate the opportunity to give it a try. I ordered, tried, and returned several times without being charged...

    I was gonna do a day long course in this - but another physio said it's very straight foward; just buy some cups, watch a couple tutorials, then practice and learn. Does that sound about right? Is cupping that straight forward?

    Hi! I slipped and fell down the stairs two days ago and I hurt my back. I am not able to stand and sit. Walking is extremely painful. This is the worst pain I have ever felt in my life. My mom applied ointment and placed hot water bag on the affected area. I feel relaxed after applying the ointment and the hot water bag. But after few hours I started experiencing the same pain that I had before. So I took painkillers to get relief from the pain. The next morning also I woke up with severe back...

    Hi all, I'm a 23-year-old with a history of hypermobile shoulders. First triggered by subluxation during rugby, I have now had a total of 4 operations on my shoulders over the last few years (first a more minor labral repair/anchoring, followed by a bone block with the more minor procedure having proved unsuccessful) in the hope of providing stability. 6 months ago (start of October 2017) I had a posterior bone block put into my left shoulder to stabilise a hyper-mobile joint that...

I kind of self taught grade 1 to 4 mobilizations - Mulligan, McKenzie concepts etc. Trigger point dry needling and taping. I have an undergrad in an non-related discipline, and was considering returning to do a masters in physio - which is basically like an...

    Good afternoon, I am currently working as a Junior Physiotherapist in a neurological clinic (4 months experience in the UK) and I have a job offer for the role of Physiotherapist Practitioner (Reablement). I would like to ask your opinion about how this change could impact my future i.e. what are the possibilities of progress after a couple of years and if it can help me get a role in another NHS Hospital in the future. Thank you a lot

Cause of problem: Barbell bicep curls, I let my wrists extend too much and a few hours after they got sore and have had problems ever since. Initial symptoms: Initially everything was sore such as flexion and extension with a band. Any weight on the...

    Hello all, My wife and I miss the UK, and would like to move to the south coast (Brighton vs Southampton vs another area I haven't discovered). I trained in Scotland so am aware of the requirements to work in the UK but am currently working in Geneva, Switzerland. As I have very little experience in the region, this thread will hopefully elucidate what cities have the best job prospects, salaries, etc. So, my questions are the following: 1. Brighton or Southampton? Or is there...
