To move or not to move

Whether you are a specialist performing surgery, a GP seeing a patient complaining of pain or a physiotherapist

or occupational therapist rehabilitating a patient after an injury, what is the first question most of us are asked?

When can I … start walking, go back to work, drive again, return to playing sport, play my next game? ...

 

Shoulder Pain

The rotator cuff consists of 4 muscles that form a “cuff” around the ball of the upper arm where it fits together

with the shoulder blade. These muscles connect the upper arm to the shoulder blade and keep the shoulder

joint together. In other words, the rotator cuff gives stability to the shoulder. ...

 

Elbow Pain - Tennis Elbow

This is a condition caused by the chronic inflammation of the tendons (the link between muscles and bone) of the

fore-arm. These tendons attach around the elbow and cause elbow pain and pain down the arm. ...

 

Slipped Disc

A spinal disc is the “cushion” that is between your vertebrae. A spinal disc has two parts: a tough outer layer

with a softer inner section. The outer portion consists of concentric layers of collagen fibres, while the inner

portion consists of a loose network of fibres within a gel-like substance. At birth, 80% of the disc consists of

water, but as we get older, the discs start dehydrating. This makes it less efficient in absorbing spinal loads. ...

 

Arthritis - Osteoarthritis

This is the most common form of arthritis. This occurs when the “cushioning” in the joints, called cartilage,

starts breaking down. This then causes the bones to rub together. The exact causes are still not fully understood. ...

 

Wrist Pain - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This is a condition where the median nerve, one of the nerves supplying the muscles of the hand, gets pinched

at wrist level. This nerve, along with all the tendons of the muscles responsible for the movement of the hand,

runs through a “tunnel” that covers the inside of the wrist. The nerve gets pinched if there is swelling and the

space in the carpal tunnel diminishes. ... 

 

Sciatica

“Sciatica” is the term given to symptoms presenting in the legs, originating from the big sciatic nerve

(that supplies some of the muscles of the lower leg) being pinched somewhere along its course. ...

 

Knee Pain - Runner's Knee

This mostly occurs when there is undue friction between the knee-cap (patella) and the knee joint. ...

 

Shin Pain - Shin Splints

This is a common name for symptoms in the lower leg, either over the inside or outside section. ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

How I work

I assess and treat every patient holistically, taking into account the physical, emotional and biochemical aspects. I spend time to determine the root cause of the problem and to educate my patients on what I have discovered. I involve my patient in his/her rehabilitation by way of discussions, coaching and home exercise programs, which I tailor to their schedule and current activity level. I work together with my patients in order to rehabilitate them back to personal power, wellness and wholeness.
