The introduction of Physiotherapist, Stuart Millward and Personal Trainer, Jonny Hind has given us an opportunity to introduce a whole system of treating chronic and acute pain and rehabilitation athletic injuries. This system is called Spiral Stabilisation and takes only 5 minutes a day. It has had amazing results in its clinic of origin in Prague.
Many people will be beginning graduated training programmes towards spring events such as the London Marathon. At Fountain Square we work with athletes during their training programmes to help prevent injuries, picking up on bad habits and weaknesses before they cause problems. We can do this using our running and walking analysis equipment which allows us to pick up pressure changes on foot strike as well as pelvic and foot instability. Spotting potential problems can be the difference between completing an event and not starting it.
Having recently had a number of new arrivals at Fountain Square Clinic with Physiotherapists Becky and Kaye adding to their families, I thought it a good time to remind new mums that graduated exercise programmes post-delivery are important to ensure good muscle recovery and prevent future problems. Fountain Square can offer individual exercise advice as well as Group Core and Pilates programmes. Re-activating pelvic floor muscles, diaphragm and abdominal muscles is key to preventing low back problems and stress incontinence.
