    Hi, I was in a similar situation a few years ago when I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis.I suffered from severe joint and knee pain. So I went to the NHS and was advised by doctor to begin physiotherapy, which I did. The physiotherapist worked on the muscles, tendons, and tissues, releasing pressure on the knee as the muscles softened and relaxed. A few exercises were also recommended to me, such as straight leg raises, bridges, Wall Squats, and Lateral Walks, all of which enabled me to...

    I am 65 years old and been very active. Half- Marathon runner in the past and weight lifter. Coming back into the gym last year I lifted 315 lbs with a trap bar dead lift. No immediate pain or realizations I might have hurt myself. A couple months later I began having muscle spasms in the right side of my back- upper. These lasted until about 4 months until a Chriopracter said I had a rib out of place. A few weeks with him and spasms were gone and much better . But never fully healed from...

    Physical therapists are healthcare specialists. Physical therapy can treat pain with mirrors. Physical therapy can help children with autism. Physical therapy can help people with Alzheimer’s disease. Physical therapists make house calls.

    Physical therapy started as a female-only profession Techniques used in physical therapy today can be traced back thousands of years There are many different types of physical therapy Physical therapy can actually reduce your treatment expenses Physical therapy incorporates massage, but not how you may think (physical therapist use massage to decrease tightness and tone and improve tissue mobility of specific muscles that may be inflamed and causing you pain)

    Hi 'injuredunfortunately', and thanks for your post. It does sound like you perhaps over did things a little but too much, too soon perhaps. 90mins of walking on a treadmill whilst trying to play with a PS4 gaming device would be a challenge for someone trained I think. Are you using a hand controller whilst doing this? It is possible that the reduced or altered upper body movement that is required to play the PS4 has mean that your leg/pelvis/low back motion has also had to alter as a...

    Hi, that sounds like a lovely plan and a great adventure. Sorry, I don't have experience in this kind of work, but talked to many physios that came to us during a work & travel period. just in general. For each of these countries you will need to have your degree validated, complete the required registration processes (if any) and -if you leave Europe- have a visa that permits you to work as a physiotherapist. And then you need to find an employer that gives you work (gets you...

    Great, that's what I was looking for. I broke my arm, I have rehabilitation, but I will continue to exercise at home. Could it be an ordinary little ball from the store?
