  • Myotherapy for Neck Pain

    Many of us will experience neck pain, tension or stiffness at some point. It is a common area to hold stress when life gets busy, and it is commonly overworked and strained when we spend too much time sedentary, looking at screens. Our necks are also very slender and mobile, making them vulnerable to injury […]

  • Arm, Wrist and Hand Assessment

    The forearm, wrist and hand are a common area for pain, especially non-traumatic pain that occurs without injury. This can be due to ‘overuse’, or seemingly for no reason at all… think carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, tendinitis or RSI. Two of the biggest predictors and drivers of non-traumatic pain are functional capacity and nerve […]

  • Hand and Wrist Strength

    Our upper limbs are remarkably versatile. They allow us to do a variety of things that require all kinds of complex combinations of mobility, strength and dexterity.

    As we get older, our likelihood of slipping, tripping or falling increases. When we were younger we were able to bounce back from a fall a lot quicker, with no injury occurring a lot of the time. Unfortunately, the risk of serious injury from a fall increases, particularly after 50 years of age and/or menopause. […]

  • Osteopathy for the Wrist & Hand

    The forearm, wrist and hand are vital to most of your daily activities. I’d be hard pressed to think of a task we perform on a daily basis that does not require the use of this area. Mobility, strength and dexterity of the forearm, wrist and hand are critical whether you’re a desk jockey or […]

  • Myotherapy for the Arm and Hand

    We often don’t realise how active our upper limbs actually are until injury occurs.  If you think about a standard morning: waking up and rubbing your eyes, making a tea, cooking and eating breakfast, grabbing the keys, writing a shopping list, and everything that follows throughout the day… your hands, wrists and elbows are working […]

  • Exercise guidelines – flexibility

    Flexibility. One of the most beneficial and rewarding types of exercise, yet often neglected – even by the most committed of exercisers. So what is flexibility exercise and why should we hold it in equal stead with aerobic and resistance training? Flexibility exercise, also called stretching, is important in countering loss of range of motion […]

  • Functional Wrist & Hand Mobility

    For us humans, our upper limb is one of the main reasons we have become the apex species on this planet… that and our enormous brains. We are wonderfully dextrous and our ability to create and use tools has allowed us to survive harsh conditions and outperform many other species. In this sense it is probably not an exaggeration to […]
