First, Do No Harm

Written on Dec 6th, 2017. Posted in Latest News

The Hippocratic Oath is a pledge that all doctors take when they are first registered to practice medicine. It includes the well known and oft-repeated, “First do no harm”, from the Greek ‘Primum non nocere’. This is certainly a good thing for doctors and physiotherapists to have in the forefront of our minds when we […]

Wolff’s Law: Teaching Us How To Keep Our Bones Strong

Written on Sep 29th, 2017. Posted in Latest News

Wolff’s Law was developed by a brilliant German anatomist and surgeon, Julius Wolff (1836–1902). It states that bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the loads under which it is placed. If loading on a bone increases, the bone will remodel itself over time to become stronger to resist that type of loading. […]

Are You Unbalanced?

Written on Jul 26th, 2017. Posted in Latest News

Our bodies are really just two separate halves desperately trying to align themselves as one.
