It is just that simple and just that hard....As Physios, there is only so much WE can do to help you recover. Yes, sometimes 'hands on' therapy is required, however MOST of your recovery will be dependent on what YOU do. Our job is to give you the tools you need to help yourself. As skilled as we are, we simply can not fix you - you must do that for yourself with our guidance and expertise...but you have to trust us....⠀ ⠀ #PivotPhysio #choosephysio #physiotherapy #rehab #recovery #injuryrehab #pain
#persistence is particularly important when it comes to recovering from an injury.⠀ ⠀ The path to wellness will definitely not always be smooth. There will often be set-backs and periods of no progress but the key is to stick with the program! You will get there in the end, it just may not be as quick and easy as you would like.⠀ ⠀ #PivotPhysio #choosephysio #physiotherapy #injuryrehab #recovery
Osteoporosis : "a paediatric disease with geriatric consequences"⠀ ⠀ It is important to note that bone is living tissue that changes constantly. New bone is laid down and old bone is removed. In particular new bone is laid down where it is deemed to be needed. During childhood and adolescence much more bone is deposited than removed with bone mass peaking for most in their late 20's. Your youth is when you have the opportunity to invest in your bone health by maintaining good nutrition and adequate levels of weight-bearing physical activity.⠀ ⠀ #PivotPhysio #choosephysio #skeletalhealth #bonehealth #osteoporosis

Is your adolescent complaining of knee pain?? Do they currently engage in a fair amount of physical activity??⠀ ⠀ If so, they may have a condition called Osgood-Schlatter Disease.⠀ ⠀ This condition is characterised by pain where the patella tendon meets the shin bone and tends to occur during growth spurts. Unfortunately there is not much to be done about it, however it is always worthwhile to seek the opinion of a Physio to ensure a correct diagnosis. Be aware that sometimes other injuries may masquerade as knee pain in adolescents⠀ ⠀ #PivotPhysio #choosephysio #osgoodschlatter #kneepaininadolescents #physiotherapy
