All over the world, new technology is emerging practically every day, opening up whole new worlds for both patients and medical professionals
There are many types of knee injuries and conditions, which can be treated successfully by Physiotherapy. These are just 7 simple steps a physiotherapist will take to determine whether you are suffering from a knee injury or osteoporosis.
If you have seen my previous entries you will know that the average 10 and a half stone runner puts 60-90 tonnes of force through each leg for every mile he/she runs *. This is a phenomenal amount of load to endure, which, with poor technique, can quickly lead to a variety of conditions ranging from shin splints and knee pain to the more serious stress fractures of the foot bones (metatarsals), shin bone (tibia) and long term wear and tear such as osteoarthritis. I see this happening to recreational and competitive runners in clinic every week.
