Caveman squats, why can’t people squat in normal life anymore?

Squatting is natural for humans but due to modern life we seem to struggle to perform them and instead we move in not so natural ways to get to the floor. why is this? This video discusses how we struggle to squat in the modern western world and how it doesn’t have to be this way. Here at Hawkes Physiotherapy we often try to get patients able to squat again as it should be fundamentally easy to do, although it isn’t for most.

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
