I’m very excited to welcome you to my first blog. Read on to find out what I’m planning to cover over the coming months:
I’m an experienced physiotherapist and aim to get my clients better quickly so they can get back to enjoying their active lifestyles again. In my opinion, the goal is to stop pain reoccurring. This is ideally accomplished by nipping it in the bud early on, plus by setting a range of short and long-term goals. I like finding the cause of the problem and sharing my findings with my patients, first and foremost so they know what’s going on. It’s important to figure out the best way to manage symptoms and come up with a plan that suits their lifestyle.
I really enjoy outdoor activities including running and cycling, to name just a few! Since being in Sydney, I’ve started trail running and have been thoroughly enjoying it. I’m a Pilates instructor and practice this both in my professional and personal life. I try to enjoy golf regularly but can get frustrated perfecting my golf swing techniques.
Last but not least, I LOVE reading – reading books, articles – anything. I’m always looking for suggestions on good stuff to read. Most recently I’ve been reading about nutrition and updating my knowledge on research on running biomechanics. All of this I will cover in future blog posts.
Why I’m writing
I used to read mainly fiction, but over time this range has expanded and I’m very keen to continue learning about different subjects and areas. There’s so much stuff out there on there on the internet that’s easy to access – like other blogs, news articles, webcasts and podcasts.
My working background is science and health. I try to maintain high standards of treatment for the people I see, so I need to be aware of different areas and topics.
Places I’ve worked for and got valuable experience from, include the UK National Health Service (NHS) to family run Physiotherapy practices.
I’m always chatting about what I’ve read and researched with my family, friends and patients. It’s because of this that I’ve decided to write bite-sized pieces about these thoughts and ideas. This blog will keep all the information in one place and I can share what I learn with other people.
My aim is to continue reading around different and interesting subjects that relate directly or indirectly to my practice. Some areas will be a refresh of knowledge (directly relating to physiotherapy practice) but other areas will be on a more in-depth look at a topic or discussion on new research that’s been released. Certainly, a lot will be generated by what inspires me at the time. Here are a few of the areas I want to cover:
- Common questions asked in my practice or on this site – please let me know if you have any questions
- Physiotherapy refreshers
Your comments are always welcome on the topics that I’m exploring, please provide any feedback. Let me know what topics are of interest. I’m happy to research and discuss a variety of areas and am always keen to learn.
All I’m after from this experience is to add to my knowledge of the world around me and to share and discuss different ideas. I’m very much looking forward to sharing what I find out with you.
