Headaches

Headaches can be related to posture, stress, muscle tension, jaw and TMJ problems, joint, muscle problems.

These problems can be related to muscle imbalance, ’frozen shoulder’(adhesive capsulitis), rehabilitation required after surgery, impingement syndromes, tendon or rotator cuff or labral problems, fractures of the shoulder or clavicle (collar bone), cartilage problems.

Elbow

Shoulder, elbow and hand pain can be referred from the neck, but it can also be from tennis or golfers elbow, tendon problems (not limited to biceps and triceps) or muscle and ligament strains.

Wrist and Hand

Repetitive stress injury is a common cause of wrist and hand pain, but it can also be caused by direct injury (skier’s thumb), wrist or hand fractures, tendon injuries or from joint problems such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis. Carpal tunnel, triangular fibrocartilage damage and ganglions are also common problems.

All these complaints can cause all kinds of symptoms and can affect your life. After a thorough assessment to determine the cause we will discuss a treatment plan and if I think that you need further investigations I will refer you to a specialist through your GP.

Hip/groin

Hip pain can be caused by a number of issues such as, but not limited to: Impingement, labral tear, groin strain, quadriceps, iliopsoas, hamstring strain, bursitis, osteoarthritis or referred pain from the back.

Knee

Unless there is a direct injury to the knee involving ligaments or cartilage, it is often problems related to joints above or below the knee which end up causing stress on the knee. So a knee problem always needs to be looked at in conjunction with the foot and the hip. Pre and post surgery rehabilitation, help for osteoarthritis, joint problems, patella pain, hamstring, quads, ITB injuries, meniscal, plica and ligament injuries.

Leg / Shin

Problems can be caused by shin splints, compartment syndromes (anterior and posterior), posterior tibialis syndrome.Running assessments, running shoe advice and referral to a podiatrist if this is appropriate.

Foot / Ankle

Foot pain related to surgery, foot biomechanics, metatarsalgia, ‘flat feet’, bunions or arthritis, achilles tendinopathy and rehabilitation after achilles tendon repair. Stress or metatarsal fractures, Morton’s neuroma, cuboid syndrome can all be debilitating. It can be very useful to have physiotherapy before turning to surgery. Firstly this can sometimes prevent the need for surgery, but if surgery is inevitable, you will be well prepared for your post operative rehabilitation.
