Dangerous clothing!!

The BBC has reported today that The British Chiropractic Association has announced that various items of clothing can “Wreak Havoc” on our bodies.

The top five dreaded items are cited as Skinny Jeans, Large Handbags, Big hoods, High Heels, and backless shoes. So, gentlemen, you are off the hook.

These finding have been rejected by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and other back experts. So, Ladies, you are off the hook too.

However there is some truth in the message. Our amazing bodies are very good to adapting to what we do most of.

Client of the week

A lady who has been to see me in the past for shoulder tension decided to extend her normal fitness/stress relief running and do a Half Marathon. I helped her with the extra leg tension this gave rise to and instructed her on stretching routines to keep her legs in the best condition.
I am delighted to say she completed the Brighton Half Marathon in just over two hours, fantastic.
If you are looking to train up for an event whether it is running, cycling, walking, sailing, kayaking or any other sport or activity I can help keep you at your optimum level of health and fitness to train enabling you to enjoy he event on the day.

Testimonial time

I find it very rewarding to receive spontaneous testimonials from clients such as the one below:-

Having had considerable pain in the thoracic, rib and sternum region I visited Ian Kerr for soft tissue remedial massage therapy and kinesiology.  After Three treatments the relief was enormous.  Ian’s expertise, methodical way of treating, his care and patience to understanding the problems and his professionalism were exemplary.  I would definitely recommend Ian Kerr to treat muscular aches and pain.

Client of the Week

A gentleman in his mid 40’s came to see me this week for a third visit. On his first visit he had massive pain in his left leg in variable places sometimes a far as his shin and foot. He described the pain as deep tooth ache and no amount of moving would give him any comfort. His description suggested a nerve impingement in his lower back/bum.

His Psoas and Glute Max, Glute Med, and TFL (tensor facia lata) were all very tight and yet he could not recall any injury or overuse which might have caused such a problem.

Client of the Week!

Overwhelming reactions can be our current day response to a historical trigger.

A man in his late 30’s came to see me a couple of weeks ago for help with his OCD symptoms. They were not major symptoms but his partner was concerned that they were getting more intrusive. He needed to have things done in a certain order and he needed to clean parts of the house in a certain way. He also appeared quite controlling with their young child.

Using Kinesiology we discovered that his OCD symptoms were driven by fear and anxiety from when he was younger.

It's not what it is...

It's not what it is........
..............it's how you feel about it!!

And you can change how you feel about anything!!
A couple of weeks ago a lady came to see me about her spider phobia. It was so bad that even talking about spiders made her cry. If one was near her she would scream, run around in circles and start to hyperventilate.
All our responses are learnt responses to a particular incident in our lives. For this lady it was when she was very young and her older cousins would chase her around the garden with spiders in their hands.

Separated Shouler Week 1 to 10

My shoulder is very strong now and I am back at work full time from September 6th.
I will be updating this blog soon with the full story.

Separated Shoulder Day 5

Friday 17 June

Most of this morning was spent researching treatment options on the internet and formulating question for the consultant on Monday. Maxine and I have a saying whenever either of us go to the Health Service for help, we say “We are in good hands - our own!”

Don’t get me wrong, I think that the NHS is a brilliant institution and there are many people that I know personally who are alive and healthy because of the NHS. But the service has its’ agenda which is more about keeping the population vertical and working within a budget without much consideration to the quality of life that patients experience after treatment.

Separated Shoulder Day 4

Thursday 16 June

One of the pre-conditions of the Esperance seeing me was to have a referral letter from my GP which, as you might imagine, could have been a challenge in itself. But, I was very lucky to get an appointment this morning with a locum GP. He listened to my story and hand wrote a referral letter there and then as well as giving me a fit note (saying I wasn’t fit) and, when asked his advice, suggested that an MRI scan would probably help with planning any treatment. What a lovely man, the complete opposite of the consultant yesterday, he had time and compassion and showed understanding.
