    I took a Course. It is quite straightforward, but the course helps you to practice a bit and learn some precautions. We tend to use too much pressure. Only a light to moderate pressure has great effect- remember less is more! The contraindications are open wounds, skin problems...the usual. Precautions: the force of pressure you use has to be adapted to the patient. It should not hurt nor turn blue. Red is good, dark red acceptable, but never blue. Patients taking blood thinners, children...

    Hi, for the immediate pain, put ice on it for at least 15min. I advise you to go to a physiotherapist who works with Be Activated Method or RPR. You have to find what's wrong, so you can fix it and not return! Let me know how you're going.

    Hi, you have to be seen by a physiotherapist. A doctor will only prescribe you more medication.

    Actually please visit physiotherapist to check sacroiliacitis or poriformis pain syndrome. It may be connected with innominate rotation too. Ok clarify this with physio

    I have a local lower back pain on my right side, mostly under the iliac crest (I hope this is the right term) for almost a year now. I also have a feeling that the iliac crest is slightly poking out on this side relative to the left one (Or maybe my left one is buried more). I went to the doctor and told about the issues as I described them here. After physical exam and X-Rays he told me that I have a spasm and should use two different muscle relaxers for a week. I did but the pain is still...

    Hi; yes this is still available. Bargain price at 100 but must be collected before the end of the month as I have no place to store it. The hydraulics are working, but I don't know the name of the plinth.

    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...
