Many of you will have experienced a muscle injury before, which most likely healed relatively quickly. This is because muscles have a really good blood supply, which enhances their healing capacity when injured. Tendons on the other hand have a limited blood supply, and if overloaded during activities like running, jumping, throwing, (“springy” activities) they can become unhappy, and generally will not settle down unless the right strategies are put in place.
Endurance walking has become increasingly popular, with many of our patients preparing for different events. However, endurance training can push your body to places it has never been, and can result in injury. It is imperative that we educate ourselves on common injuries when partaking and training for endurance events, as detecting the signs of injury is vital in early management and recovery.

Is your world spinning? You may have vertigo. Vertigo is defined as 'the sensation of the world spinning around you', or the illusion of movement. This can occur spontaneously or with a knock to the head and is related to the vestibular system of the inner ear.
At some point in our life we will most likely come across a painful sensation in our buttock region with some referral down the back of our leg. This presentation is a common complaint that clients seek Remedial Massage treatment for, as many people will automatically self-diagnose themselves as having 'sciatica', due to the location.
