  3. It is normal to feel some delayed onset muscle soreness between 48-72 hours but this should be manageable
  4. Lie down on your side with your body completely straight. Take the bottom arm out to the side so that you are supported on you forearm.
  5. Bend you bottom leg slightly so that it is out of the way. Place your upper leg onto a step with your knee slightly bent, making sure that your knee is supported on the step.
  6. Next raise the pelvis off the ground until your body is in a straight line.
  7. At the top you should only be in contact with your forearm and your leg.
  8. Then control back to the start and repeat
  9. For strengthening you should perform 6-10 reps to fatigue
  10. You should perform 3-5 sets with 3 minutes rests

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).
