    An approach to recurrent 'neck and shoulder tension/pain ' with Dr. Heath Williams

    An approach to recurrent 'neck and shoulder tension/pain ' with Dr. Heath Williams

    On today’s episode Heath Williams and I explore a common presentation we see in practice:

    Recurrent pain/tightness/stiffness across the upper traps and neck. Patients often have relief following treatment, but it builds up again. How can we promote self efficacy and get longer lasting results? What are the underlying factors playing a role? Is it weakness of the upper traps? What role can desk ergonomics play? Is it weakness of the cuff or cervical stabilisers leading to overload of other muscles? 

    With a background in osteopathy, strength and conditioning, ergonomics and OHS, Heath gives us his perspective on this presentation. 

    We discuss:
    Heath’s approach to examination.
    Considerations when prescribing exercises and movement strategies.
    How to best engage the patient in interventions.
    Biopsychosocial considerations.
    Ergonomic contributing factors and actionable tips we can implement with patients. 
    Standing desks and working from home ergonomics. 

    Heath’s practice Principle Four Osteopathy offers: 
    Osteopathy
    Strength and conditioning
    Ergonomic workplace assessments
    Workshops and online education
    Shockwave therapy
    Telehealth appointments

    Urinary incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction with women's health physiotherapist Kym Veale

    Urinary incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction with women's health physiotherapist Kym Veale

    Today I am joined by women’s health physiotherapist Kym Veale. Kym is the director of Womankind Physiotherapy in Eltham and Yarrambat in Melbourne. She obtained her degree in Physiotherapy, as well as post  graduate certificates in advanced pelvic floor rehabilitation, and exercise for women through the University of Melbourne. Kym is passionate about empowering and educating women through all stages of life. Today’s discussion focuses on urinary incontinence in women. This is something that will commonly come up in a case history or systems screen, and once ruled out as a red flag, is often left unaddressed. There is a common misconception that it is an inventible outcome of age or after having children. Part of our role is to educate our patients and know when and where to refer if it is not in our scope of practice.

     

    We cover:
    Common presentations to a women’s health physiotherapist.
    Urge and stress incontinence.
    Objective and subjective assessment.
    Pelvic floor dysfunction and rehabilitation.
    Effective cues for correct pelvic floor activation.
    The importance of a thorough and correct pelvic floor assessment to create individual pelvic floor rehab program.

     

    I hope you enjoy today’s episode and feel able to inform women that although urinary incontinence is common, it’s not normal, and there is help available.

     

    Please see the Womankind website for information on the services they offer. As well as clinical physiotherapy, they run pre and post natal and over 60’s clinical exercises classes and active birth skills work shops.
