Tennis Elbow Pain - An MSK Therapy Treatment Perspective

There are many types of elbow pain, and Lateral Epicondylitis is one such routine diagnosis. Some conditions have a medical name and a commonly known name, usually named after an activity associated with the condition. Lateral Epicondylitis is more widely known as Tennis Elbow, though one does not have to play tennis to develop symptoms. Many activities involve sustained use of the forearm extensor muscles, like playing tennis. Many professionals such as mechanics, plumbers, electricians, typists, musicians, massage therapists etc. can all be susceptible to tennis elbow. Usually, the condition arises gradually over time due to repetitive microtrauma, though it can occur from a specific injury event. There are many possible causes, preventative strategies and treatment options. The full article discusses all these factors, including typical symptoms see Tennis Elbow Pain.

Trochanteric Bursitis and Hip Pain - An MSK Therapy Perspective

  Trochanteric Bursitis and Hip Pain Hip pain caused by Trochanteric Bursitis is surprisingly common. Trauma caused by falls is a common reason for experiencing hip bursitis symptoms. Often, when people fall, specific contact points hit the floor first, such as hands, elbows, shoulders, and hips. Hence, many areas can get injured during a fall, and hips often take the brunt of many falls. Due to other swelling and pain, symptoms of trochanteric bursitis may not be apparent at the time of injury. Equally, unresolved injuries and habits can result in tissue adaptations and changes in biomechanics, which can also lead to hip bursitis. Such changes can lead to gradual symptom onset with no obvious, apparent cause. The full article on  Hip Pain and Trochanteric Bursitis  explains more about, symptoms, possible causes, anatomy and MSK Therapy treatment options.

Stress, Wellbeing, Performance and the Workplace (Part 1)

The Human Stress Response and "stressors" Stress is something that affects all living organisms and is an age-old factor of survival and life. Most people view stress as bad for health, yet it can also have a very positive impact on health. The human stress response has proven to be a highly effective survival strategy and one which has existed for as long as humans have walked the earth. The human reaction to stress or a “stressor” has barely changed for as long as we have existed, though times certainly have. Any form of perceived “stressor” can lead to the initiation of a stress response, and a threat does not have to be life-threatening. In modern-day life, the majority of people will probably never encounter a life-threatening situation. Yet, the physical and psychological impacts of stress in the modern world are clear to see. Part one of the full article on Stress, the Individual, Wellbeing, Performance and the Workplace (1 of 3) delves into what happens physio

Headache Treatment and causes - An MSK Therapy perspective

Headaches are a common factor in life. The headache market is a multi-billion dollar industry for the pharmaceutical industry. Equally, the consumer has grown accustomed to reaching for over the counter medications such as paracetamol, aspirin and ibuprofen. However, many such products do not identify the root cause of the headaches and often only mask symptoms. Equally, there is growing evidence of the longer-term effects of prolonged use of such medications and, in some cases, even causing headaches. Headaches can occur for various reasons, levels of severity and differing symptoms. Many types of headaches have a musculoskeletal or myofascial component. It is often possible to reduce the frequency and even severity of such headaches with simple lifestyle changes and hands-on treatment. The full article looks more at possible causes of headaches and treatment , including the relevance of myofascial trigger point pain. Article written by Terry Davis MChiro,  BSc (Hons),  Adv. Dip.
