Whether we’re dealing with chronic or acute pain or something else entirely, our approach and
communication can make a real difference on the patients perception and beliefs about the
🔎Acknowledging the complexity of pain and the biopsychosocial components that can affect the
therapeutic outcome is important.
Many clinicians still view patients purely from a structural and biomechanical standpoint and
disregard other factors.
📓Physiotherapists partially recognised cognitive, psychological and social factors in people
Physiotherapists expressed a preference for dealing with the more mechanical
aspects of LBP, and some stigmatised the behaviours suggestive of cognitive, psychological
and social contributions.
(Synnot A, 2019)
📓Health professionals, such as physicians and physiotherapists, demonstrate primarily
biomedical pain beliefs and practices, and that this is strongly associated with the beliefs
of their patients.
Patients believe they learnt their potentially harmful understandings from health professionals.

I Love, we Love Chinese Medicine 🌿 My own first experience with this truly holistic form of looking at imbalance in the body, mind & spirit was when I was 14 years old. My own menstrual cycle was irregular, heavy (metrorrhagia) and painful (dysmenorrhea), but within a few sessions (the younger we are, the quicker we respond) my periods were b-e-a-utiful 🌹
I am still friends with this Chinese Medicine doctor and she still remembers me laying on the table wide-eyed and green around the edges saying “So, how do I learn this?”! And the rest is a lifetime of beautiful history. .
Single leg barbell RDLs! I love this exercise cos it challenges and works so many different body parts!
Lat activation, single legged balance, glutes, hammies, lower back and trunk👊🏼. .
Have a great weekend, everyone!

I’m a proud DO. Too often I find that others even in the healthcare field are unaware of what the potential and capabilities of an osteopathic physician is. One of my goals is to help shed light on the osteopathic medical profession, how we are similar and not similar to other professions.
1. We are medical doctors going through the same curriculum as our MD colleagues (4 years of Med school). We have to go through residency afterwards (3 years minimum) and can go into any specialty of choice. I am a family practice physician, finishing up my last year of residency 🙌🏼😃💪🏼
2. In addition to the above, we go through 200 hours of training on osteopathic manual therapy (OMT). This is a wonderful alternative approach that is hands on, helps get a holistic idea of our patients pathologies and has multitude of applications anywhere from treating headaches, leg swelling, back pain, sinusitis, pelvic floor dysfunction, you name it!
3. We are trained to have a holistic approach so we may treat the patient as a whole. Not just a disease. The OMT training really makes us comfortable to provide the healing touch to patients. When we see a diabetic, we aren’t just checking their sugars, we feel the tissue texture change along their T5-9 vertebra to hint any suggestion of gastroparesis. Not all DOs may go on to practice OMT as it is up to them to what extend they wish to integrate it into their practice.
So I feel so empowered as a DO. I treat patients with complex conditions like post traumatic brain injury symptoms all the way to babies with torticollis. I know when I feel a lump on the neck, I have the medical background, the palpatory skills and the musculoskeletal knowledge to distinguish between a lymph node vs thyroid vs a strained anterior neck muscle (like SCM). There is so much potential as a DO and my next mission is to learn more about pelvic floor therapy to help my patients with low back pain, hip pain, vaginitis, vaginismus, interstitial cystitis etc. As a DO, the sky is the limit 😃
Weekly treatment with the inspirational @nitinpassi CEO of @missguided at his home in Sloane Square.
As you can imagine Nitin leads a high powered lifestyle. He frequently travels between London and Manchester for business as well as abroad. Training wise he focuses on explosive calisthenics style training for fitness, this combined with his active schedule means his body benefits from regular maintenance work to maintain peak performance.
Before the treatment Nitin had some inflammation and irritation in the mid back. This was causing a significant 7/10 pain when rotating to the right.
After just 1 hour of my specialised treatment using a combination of graston technique, spinal adjustment and stretching Nitin was completely pain free. Not only that but he forgot which side he had pain turning towards too! They both felt as good as each other and his mobility had increased massively.
The pain had been there for a couple of weeks after some long haul flights to Dubai and LA. But all it took was one hour to have him back on top of his game 👑 #millionairreservice Thanks @nitinpassi 💙👊🏼
🚨WRIST STABILITY EXERCISES🚨
With the amount of motion and degrees of freedom performed by the wrist complex, strength and STABILITY are important💡. Stability is the ability of the joint to maintain proper position🧘🏻♂️and control during movement. This can be accomplished by using joint approximation, which means using joint compression during open or closed chain exercises, to facilitate reflex stability.
👉🏼 The following exercises (SWIPE LEFT) address wrist stability in both open and closed chain patterns:
🔹Kettlebell Bottom-Up 4-Way Control - holding the KB from the handle, perform minor movements into flexion, extension, ulnar deviation, and radial deviation. Do not bring to end-range. Movement is to be slightly off from neutral in each direction.
🔹Walking Overhead Carry - can be performed with either a vertically held dumbbell or Bottom-Up KB. Walking allows greater motion in varying planes to resist.
🔹Wrist Self-Perturbations - in an arms extended plank position using the @terracorefitness, roll back and forth into wrist radial and ulnar deviation while maintaining control.

❓❓❓CURARE IL GINOCCHIO CON L’OSTEOPATIA ❓❓❓
Il ginocchio è una delle articolazioni più importanti del nostro corpo su cui riversa l’intero peso, ed è per questo molto delicata. Non sempre il dolore ha origine dal ginocchio, molto spesso su di esso vanno a confluire problematiche che riguardano varie zone del nostro organismo e che necessitano dunque di essere corrette.
Le tecniche Osteopatiche in presenza di dolore al ginocchio variano da caso a caso. L’Osteopata può mettere in atto una manipolazione osteopatica che aiuta a recuperare la corretta funzionalità del ginocchio liberando le ossa da qualsiasi tipo di tensione e normalizzando i movimenti articolari.
Qualora il problema nasca da disfunzioni legate ad altre zone del corpo come bacino o caviglie, o problemi posturali, è utile intervenire alla radice con un trattamento mirato.
Epäkäslihas (m. trapezius) on pinta-alaltaan laaja lihas, johon lasketaan kuuluvan kolme osaa (ylä-,
keski- ja alaosa).
Lihaksen yläosa on eniten esillä ja sen tehtävänä on lapaluun elevaatio (ylöspäin
vetäminen) sekä ylöspäin kiertäminen.
🏋️Epäkäslihaksen yläosan harjoittamiseen usein suositaan olankohautusta (shrug). Tyypillisesti liike suoritetaan joko levytangolla tai käsipainoilla, kädet kohtisuorassa maahan ja
hartiat viedään korvia kohti.
🔎Kohautusliikkeen vaikuttavuutta tarkastellut tutkimus totesi, että 30asteen olkavarren loitonnuksessa
kohautusliikkeen lihasaktivaatio tehostui huomattavasti.
Verrattuna tavallisesti suoritettuun kohautukseen, 30asteen loitonnuksessa epäkkään
kokonaisvaltainen sekä etummaisen sahalihaksen aktivaatio kasvoivat.

👣The shoulder is a synovial, ball-and-socket joint that is comprised of the convex humeral head and concave glenoid surface of the scapula.
🔎During shoulder abduction, as shown here, the humerus rolls superiorly along the glenoid and glides inferiorly in order to keep the two bony surfaces relatively centered on each other.

Acupuncture: used widely in my clinic alongside my osteopathic techniques! I hear a lot of people say "you have to believe in it for it to work..." which isn't actually true! Acupuncture works in different ways to help aid the healing process in your body. ⚡️1) It stimulates the nerves in the tissues sending a bombardment of signals back to the brain to attenuate the pain signals. 2) it sets of a local inflammatory response, which makes the immune system send in its chemicals to help heal the tissues. 3) used for trigger point release, acupuncture needles are used directly into the muscle & resets the muscle's reflex mechanism to help it relax. ⚡️ So next time you think acupuncture is a placebo, think again and trust this ancient form of therapy!
- The first smile -
If you look at most osteopathic accounts on IG, they talk about fixing dysfunctions and adjusting the parts.
But if you read the founder of osteopathy, the word "Lesion" appears only 28 times and the word "adjustment" only 13 times on 1293 pages!
I hope some of my colleagues will find that interesting.
Anyway, I saw a baby this morning for his second appoinment. This baby is born with an agenesis of the corpus callosum, which is a congenital disorder.
The mom told me that right after the first session, he smiled to her for the very first time. He was also turning only toward his right side but started to turn his head to the left a few hours after he had his first osteopathic treatment.
How lovely is that? •
