In this article, I am going to talk hip bursitis (trochanteric bursitis), and what you can do, if you are getting these symptoms. Hip bursitis is characterised by discomfort in the hip joint, which may feel like a burning sensation. Other characteristics of hip bursitis include discomfort at night when sleeping, warm feeling in the area of the hip joint and discomfort when you add pressure to the area.
With back pain, one of the most common recommendations I see out there is that 'tight' hamstring muscles are one the main causes and they need stretching out. In this article I am going to be looking at how effective this actually is, I will be looking at the research carried out into this area and also see if there is anything more effective we can do to help with back pain.
A common issue I treat in my studio is knee pain. The range of people suffering from knee pain can be quite big, anyone from athletes to weekend runners, whose biomechanics could be causing their knee pain, through the population who may be suffering with some from of degeneration (arthritis for example). The way I treat people, depending on the cause of their knee pain is quite different, but one technique I have found useful for most people who suffer knee pain is the use of kinesiology tape. It is great for helping calm down the symptoms and easing discomfort. Whilst it won't correct the underlying cause, its good to ease the pain whilst the underlying cause gets corrected.

Do you get knee pain when you run?
Chances it could be down to patellofemoral pain syndrome, more commonly known as “runner’s knee” (however don’t just assume it’s this), but what actually is ‘runner’s knee’ and more importantly what can we do about it?
