The power of the nap
Whenever possible I like to take a quick afternoon nap, not always possible but I certainly feel the benefits when I do. Have a listen and perhaps give it a try, if not during the week perhaps as an opportunity to get some extra rest on the weekends....always helpful when the kids have you run ragged and ready to drop by evening time!

This quick episode will hopefully motivate you to look for some green space at every opportunity.

What to do about persistent back pain when core exercises don't work?
Many of our clients arrive at the clinic struggling with some form of back pain. Some come to us after trying various treatments with little relief. Here I'd like share some more recent advances in the knowledge about the assessment and treatment of persistent low back pain of a certain type. These are the clients who would be less likely to benefit from PhysioPilates as discussed in my previous episode and need a different approach. Much of the content discussed in this episode is based on the work of Prof. Peter O'Sullivan as well as the Pain-ed team who have had great influence within the physiotherapy profession.
