Your free guide to helping ease pain and attain best health
To start Virtual Physio select the green button that relates to the body part where you feel you have a problem. Remember, your problem area may not be where you feel the pain, for example shoulder problems often refer pain into the top of the arm. The problem area relates to the part of you body that you move to generate a pain response.
Your Problem may have been diagnosed by your GP or Physiotherapist. This is obviously more accurate and will mean the exercises are more appropriate for your condition. If you are unsure about your diagnosis please contact QuickPhys.
Perform each exercise for about 10 repetitions: but listen to your body. Don't over do it.
If you are unsure please book an appointment with Quickphys and we will establish a diagnosis and determine your best care pathway.
The short video below is an example of how and why many people have an experience of pain. Whether it is their shoulder, neck, back or knee a 'Movement dysfunction' is very common and if performed long enough or hard enough the bodies tissues will start to complain: their language is 'pain'.
Take a moment to compare the top and bottom video clips. On the top the person is repeatedly bending their spine to make each lift. On the bottom the same person is bending from their hips, they have a wider stance and they are minimising rotation by facing the trailer.
The clinician's guide provides a basic overview of how to perform joint assessment. These are not exhaustive tests but will provide some insight as to the nature of the problem.
