Gordon Bohlmann, BSc (PT), CGIMS, OMT, BSc HMS, Physiotherapist , discusses physiotherapy for sciatic pain.

Sciatic pain or sciatica is a typical complaint that people will come into the clinic with, and what they usually mean by that is they have pain somewhere in their back or going down their leg.

It’s important to remember that sciatica or sciatic pain is really not a diagnosis but a set of symptoms by which people describe pain. So it’s very important to be assessed by a physiotherapist to determine where the pain is coming from because it could come from a number of different structures.

Carol Kennedy, BScPT, MClSc(manip), FCAMPT, Physiotherapist, , discusses neck pain & headaches.

A cervicogenic headache is a headache that arises from the structures in the cervical spine or the neck, and that could be the joints, it could be the ligaments, it could be the muscles, and usually it’s the upper part of the neck.

And about 20 percent of all headaches are cervicogenic. So there’s a huge classification of different types of neck pains, and only one of which is cervicogenic. And so usually what you look for if someone’s experiencing a headache that is coming from the neck, there’s usually some sort of associated involvement, like certain movements or postures, of the neck reproduce that headache.

Pregnancy and Stretching Exercises , Ms. Tamarah Nerreter, physiotherapist, discusses Pregnancy and Stretching Exercises

In pregnancy, the relaxin hormone is ever present, into the postpartum period, for about three to four months.

Therefore, it’s important to maintain a good stretching routine. Certain muscles will tighten and change with change of posture and centre of gravity, and also the change in the laxity of your joints.

So, it’s important to be progressive with your stretching program, but not to stretch too aggressively because you will have an increased range of motion of those joints. Physiotherapy Now
