When you catch a virus like the flu, you typically expect to feel low on energy for a few days until you recover. However, sometimes this exhaustion lingers long after the virus has gone. This condition, known in the medical community as 'post-viral fatigue,' is quite common. Recently, it has gained significant attention due to 'Long Covid,' where coronavirus symptoms, including persistent fatigue, last for more than a month. This blog will explore how effective energy management can help alleviate the symptoms of post-viral fatigue, aiding you in achieving a full recovery. 
The purpose of this blog post is to offer a comprehensive overview of the various forms of back pain, enabling you to recognize the type you may be encountering.

Pain can manifest itself in different ways, it can be sharp, dull, throbbing, or even burning, and it can vary in intensity from mild discomfort to severe agony.

Many people ask, What is Women's & Men's Health Physio? In a nutshell it is the treatment of issues arising from the pelvis and pelvic floor muscles. This may be pain, incontinence, bladder urgency and prolapse among other things. No one should suffer in silence and the biggest step for many men and women is having the confidence to speak to someone and to seek help. Katrina Wade is our Women's & Men's Health Specialist and has been working in this field for 30 years. We are trying to encourage people to speak out about their problems, whether this is to a health professional or friends and relatives.

It is also that time of year when we see more knee pain in the clinic. People will often ask us how can I protect my knees whilst gardening, and is gardening with bad knees going to be a problem. We can help and show people how can they make it better so that they can continue with their love of gardening?

As soon as we went into lock down, we went online. All our Pilates classes went online, and we had to quickly adapt to life on Zoom. I was lucky to be surrounded by amazing team members, patients, friends, and family. One of my patients kindly gave up 2 hours of her time for me to come and teach me how to set up zoom meetings and classes, I am forever grateful to her for this and can now declare myself the Queen of Zoom!
