A VERY common question we get asked is “Should I see the GP or come straight to the physio?”

Traditionally, the doctor has been the first port of call following an injury or illness. General Practitioners or GPs are specialists in their own right. Their expertise is not confined to a specific organ or type of treatment like a gynecologist or a surgeon. GPs have...

Do you ALWAYS seem to be nursing an injury? 

Or maybe your body feels amazing so with a sudden BOOM of energy you skip ahead a few kms trying to make up for lost time… but suddenly you bust in a heap and now feel like you’re back to square one?

What is it, why does it happen & how much is normal?? 🤷🏽‍♀️


Firstly, let’s talk about the ‘gap’. The linea alba is a thick, flexible yet strong structure made up of collagen fibers which runs from the breast bone all the way down to the centre of the pubic bone.

In turbulent times we gravitate to comfort, comfort in what brings us joy. It’s times like these that we must prioritise both our physical and mental health; you really shouldn’t forgo that post-exercise rush.  There really isn’t anything better than feeling two-inches taller post Pilates class, or that sense of freedom of movement post workout cool down so why...

Osteoarthritis (OA); often described as "wear and tear" or “bone rust” is an inevitable part of the aging process. OA occurs when there is more cartilage breakdown than cartilage regeneration. There are a number of factors that influence these processes including genetics, choice of sport at a young/middle age and body weight. OA can occur in any joint, but is...

Good balance is something that is often taken for granted. Most people don’t think twice about walking across a gravel path, reaching up to the top cupboard or bending over to tie their shoelaces. With impaired balance day-to-day activities can be challenging or extremely fatiguing. Symptoms that can often accompany unsteadiness include dizziness, vertigo, naus...

Why is it at this time of year we all go crazy on the “new year new me” mentality? Is it the pressures of social media? Or maybe even pressure from within our friendship circles? Either way, even the best of us can fall prey to these pressures and although this burst of new motivation is brilliant, it should be ridden like a paddle boarder, slow, even and stead...
