After being a Therapist and a Pilates instructor for a number of years, one thing I have noticed is our need and want to get better from injury or pain... quickly!
No one likes suffering with pain or injury and it’s natural to want to get rid of it as quick as possible but unfortunately there are not many types of Therapy that can “fix” us instantly with that pain or injury not returning.
In this article we are going to look at ways we can help boost and improve our Therapy.
One thing I have learnt since being a Manual Therapist & Pilates instructor is that problem is not always where the pain is.
In this article I am going to be looking at how shoulder pain could be caused by your glutes. Although this may sound a little bit odd to begin with, by the end I hope you will be able to see that it is quite straight forward and entirely possible for your glute’s to cause shoulder pain.
One of the biggest challenges for clients who visit Therapists (and also one of the biggest challenges I had when I was also a client) is completing the corrective homework exercises. Even though it is one of the most vital parts to the success in our Therapy journey, it is still one of the main things that hold us back in achieving what we want.
Here we will look at why they are important and ways that can help you to complete those exercises regularly.
It is a common misconception that a Massage (particularly a Sports Massage or Deep tissue Massage) should be painful in order to achieve results. If we think about it, a lot of time people seek a massage treatment because they are in some sort of pain... so why go and have something where you get more pain?
Luckily things have progressed on over recent years and the “no pain no gain” mindset is slowly being changed when it comes to Massage.
