We’ve had the privilege of sharing a discussion we had with Physiotherapist Chris Allan about Stretching! It’s an interesting topic where the aim is to stimulate some thinking about WHY and HOW we stretch and what we THINK is really happening in our body by doing this sometimes ARCHAIC, sometimes USEFUL technique! Chris is a...

Ask a healthcare practitioner what their thoughts on Crossfit are… then ask them if they’ve ever tried it! In my experience, there’s not many positive comments around when talking to my fellow health professionals about Crossfit (in South Africa at least), yet many of the nay-sayers are knocking it before giving it a try.

An article I read in the PhysioSA journal from February has provided the inspiration for my first blog. The main theme of the article was a call for physiotherapists to improve our treatments using more optimal load management strategies.

I’m slightly hesitant though and need to frame this very carefully. Not long ago, South...

It’s no secret that the theme of this blog keeps stretching beyond what’s conventionally painted as “physiotherapy” or even ‘health-care” – which is good (in my opinion). It’s my profession, and my industry, but I am also running a business, having life experiences and all these parts make up the bigger whole so they almost...

I’m ending my first year of this blog by almost going full circle – I’ve covered this topic in previous pieces (https://www.enhancedphysio.co.za/blog-1/whose-job-is-it-anyway-a-physio-s-perspective) and (https://www.enhancedphysio.co.za/blog-1/health-care-or-sick-care) and have gotten large amounts of feedback and comments from readers weighing in with their stories and experiences, it’s something that we really do need to speak about… Our profession is...

One variable that has been in the spotlight in recent years has been predicting injuries in sport and specifically, preventing injury through the screening of athletes. In...

As a rugby fan, and field side rugby physio, this is a topic that we look at with great fascination. We follow the head injury assessments, watch the viral videos of Sonny Bill-Williams, making consecutive tackles after appearing to be knocked out without the gravity of the severity of sports related concussion (SRC). SRC can...
