Physiotherapy and Osteopathy. What is the difference?

Physiotherapy and Osteopathy. What is the difference?

Fidget – Posture advice

Journal of sports medicine and Physical fitness

I have worked incredibly hard on getting my article on fatigue testing on basketball players completed and I felt an incredible sense of satisfaction when we managed to get my scientific article published in journals of sports medicine and physical fitness.

Hot and cold packs- the never ending confusion!

Hot and cold packs- the never ending confusion!
