Pregnancy and child birth is a unique time which can be wonderful but equally puts a lot of strain on a women’s body. Photo by Suhyeon Choi on Unsplash A ‘normal’ pregnancy lasts anything from 37–40 weeks and although many women flourish during this time, a large percentage of women describe some rather uncomfortable symptoms. Pregnancy affects almost every system in the body from the cardiovascular system to the respiratory system, urinary system and of course the Musculoskeletal system.

A Scar is defined as an ‘area of fibrous tissue that replaces the normal skin after injury’; where we usually think of them from surgical procedures, accidents or the baddie from the Lion King. They can be rooted emotionally in relation to trauma or surgery or persistent pain for many years (orthopaedic surgeries, cancer/tumour removal, facial injuries etc); or it could just be that affected area of the body that gets ignored and you change habits over time (a lesion on the sole of the foot, childhood injury etc) ; or they can be associated with positive times – tattoos and piercings can also ..read more

Kensington Physio’s Senior physiotherapist Annabel H, who has a particular interest in physiotherapy for children and adolescents, gives us some tips for different age ranges!

Is the stress affecting my back? The simple answer is – Yes!  Many doctors who specialise in back problems are now seeing a direct link between stress and chronic back problems The reason is that our ancestors used the: “flight or fight” system to survive. This means that they had to be ready to fight against the enemy, or literally run away from them! Today…it’s the same.
