I have been a bit of a runner for most of my life. Where I grew up in the Highlands of Scotland there was plenty of cross country running tracks to be explored.

I’ve pondered for quite some time if we can efficiently tailor exercise programs for people living with pain. Recent evidence (Hodges, 2019)and a consensus amongst peers, suggest that a hybrid approach to pain management programs is necessary. As proposed by Hodges, (2019) this would include stratification, identification of pain mechanism and subgrouping based on movement and/or psychology.  The multidimensional […]

I saw this video and just had to share it to metaphorically emphasise the power of touch. There are some in the physiotherapy profession that bang on about how pointless manual therapy is, and  whilst the evidence base confirms that we are doing anything mechanically (i.e. resetting joints, correcting leg length discrepancies, increasing tissue viability) (Bereznick, […]

I’m a bit of a runner, always have been. Nothing overly competitive but participated because of the health benefits. So, whilst exercise has physiological effects on the body there is also another side to running that interests me and that is the philosophy. More specifcally the sense of freedom, the adventure and the opportunity to reflect […]

Persistent pain is certainly a complex beast and if we are to discuss particular body regions, low back pain would have to be the kraken* of all musculoskeletal disorders. In 2018 it was still the number one cause of disability globally and has dominated the number one spot spanning nearly 3 decades (James et al., […]

We’ve all seen that familiar face pulled by people living with persistent pain who are being asked to exercise for the first time. Exercise can be daunting and so physiotherapists should have a broad understanding of exercise implementation. Dosage is a term that is commonly linked to medication. Unsurprisingly, dosage is also linked with exercise, […]

I’ve decided to share a story about someone that had a wonderful outcome from engaging in a pain program. The story takes you on a rollercoaster ride of physical and emotional experiences.  I agreed to share it because the story identifies areas in our current practice that have created misconceptions about pain and what to do […]
