Step by Step

  1. This exercise works your Quads and Glutes and Core
  2. Like any exercise this should be pain free or shouldn’t increase existing pain levels, during, after and the next day.
  3. It is normal to feel some delayed onset muscle soreness between 48-72 hours but this should be manageable
  4. Attach an exercise band at about stomach height to one side of you
  5. Take hold of one end with both hands and rotate your trunk to that side with your arms outstretched straight in front of your chest and step sideways as to take up the slack
  6. Now take a long stride forwards with the leg to the side away from the band attached side
  7. The back leg should be weightbearing on the toes
  8. Next bend the front knee to move your foot over that foot so that it slightly passed the toes.
  9. The opposite knee should be dropping down to the floor
  10. At the same time rotate the opposite way with your body, always keeping your hands directly in front of your chest
  11. Once you hit the bottom of the movement and can’t rotate any further then reverse direction to the position at the start with both lower and upper limb
  12. Perform your full set this way and once completed then also perform this exercise the other way around by swapping both arms and legs as to still be turning towards the front leg side against resistance.
  13. For strengthening you should perform 6-10 reps to fatigue
  14. You should perform 3-5 sets with 3 minutes rests
  15. This session can be done 2-3 times per week
  16. For endurance you should perform 15-25 reps to fatigue
  17. You should perform 3-5 sets with no more than 30 second rests
  18. This session can be done 2-3 times per week

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).
