Wolff’s Law Teaches Us How To Keep Our Bones Strong.

Written on Sep 28th, 2017. Posted in Uncategorized

Wolff’s Law was developed by a brilliant German anatomist and surgeon, Julius Wolff (1836–1902). It states that bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the loads under which it is placed. If loading on a bone increases, the bone will remodel itself over time to become stronger to resist that type of loading. […]

Are You Unbalanced?

Written on Jul 26th, 2017. Posted in Uncategorized

Our bodies are really just two separate halves desperately trying to align themselves as one. From our right and left sided hemispheres of our brains controlling different sides of our body through to our limbs, one side can turn out quite different to the other. Our brain is constantly working to try and keep both […]

Stay The Knife!

Written on Nov 6th, 2016. Posted in Uncategorized

As physiotherapists we have a great relationship and work closely with many surgeons. But despite this, much of what we do is trying to put these guys out of work.

In the die-hard ski community it has been said that you’re not a real skier until you have ruptured your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

Written on May 29th, 2015. Posted in Uncategorized

The Hippocratic Oath is a pledge that all doctors take when they are first registered to practice medicine. It includes the well known and oft-repeated, “First, do no harm”, from the Greek ‘Primum non nocere’.

For those interested in running no doubt you would have come across news of the Class-action lawsuit against Vibram Five Fingers that was settled back in May.

Is Imaging Overused?

Written on Jul 20th, 2014. Posted in Uncategorized

Like any responsible clinic owner, I occasionally Google our clinic name, to see what the search returns. A few years ago I found a bad review on an athlete’s blog. The review (which was later removed) was along the lines of “I went to Tokyo Physio for my heel pain. The therapist spoke with me […]
