Headaches, a condition that is affecting our lives more than we like to admit. Be it a mild pulsating ache in the background or a throbbing pain behind the eyes, it is annoying. Let’s face it, waking up with headaches on a daily basis is NOT normal and it is something we can easily live without. So what causes a headache? How do we overcome it? More importantly, how can we prevent it?
Post-operative rehabilitation with a Physiotherapist is an integral process to optimise recovery. Physiotherapists are qualified to assess and manage your recovery process from day one.
There are a broad range of rehabilitative and healing exercises recommended during your recovery which the Physiotherapist will be able to discuss with you at a time suitable to your individual needs. Remember that some exercise programs can only be started a few days or more after surgery in order to let the very first stages of healing occur without disturbing sutures and surgical work.
Lower back pain can be debilitating, not only from a pain point of view, but functionally can be very limiting and have a major effect on daily life and work activities.
Although some episodes of lower back pain can be self-limiting and resolve by themselves, physiotherapy can help achieve a faster recovery, with a reduction in pain and an increase in mobility and function, hopefully reducing the severity and length of the back pain episode. This will also assist in reducing the likelihood of future back pain episodes.
Lower back pain (lumbar pain) may present in a number of ways depending on the underlying cause. Pain may be characterised by a dull ache, shooting or piercing pain, or a burning sensation. Pain may be localised in the back or radiate into buttock, groin, legs or feet.
Clinical Pilates utilises movement and awareness to enhance your brain’s natural ability to learn new movement patterns. Research into Neuroplasticity indicates that the brain has lifelong potential for growth and acquiring new skills, so you’re never too old to learn!

Sciatica is commonly described as a pain experienced mostly on one side of the body and runs down the buttock, hamstring and sometimes extend to the lower leg. Sciatica pain is normally caused by compression of the nerve that originates from your lower back. It can be triggered by joints inflammation, tight buttock, arthritic growth and locked facet joints.
