If you’re suffering from neck pain, it can be very tempting to hope that it will go away on its own and that time will heal. In many cases, simple neck problems will heal with a little bit of time, keeping active and doing some simple exercises … Think again!

Pelvic girdle pain (PGP) is pain which is felt around the pelvis, lower back, hips and thighs.   It can vary from mild to severe. The symptoms can be different for each woman.

lower limb conditions

Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) is a painful and debilitating condition, affecting the outer thigh and hip area.
It happens when the tissues that lie over the bone at the top of the thigh (greater trochanter) become irritated. These tissues can include tendons, muscles or fluid-filled sacs (bursae) that help smooth movement between muscles, tendons and the hip bone.

Nothing can disrupt normal daily living quite as much as pain that keeps you from moving around.

If you’re experiencing pain in the bottom of your heel, it may be worth getting it checked out. Your plantar fascia ligament may be inflamed, which could be causing your pain.

Achilles tendinopathy is an injury to the band of tissue (tendon) that connects the muscles in your lower leg to your heel bone. You may get pain, stiffness and sometimes swelling around your heel. It’s a common injury, especially if you’re very active or do lots of sports.

other conditions

What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory condition which can affect a number of joints in the body. Usually, the articular surface (lining) and synovium (fluid filled sac covering the joints surface) become inflamed which can then interfere with your normal hobbies or activities of daily living. The inflammation occurs as a result of the body’s immune system attacking various joints although the reason for this is not known. The inflammation may also affect the cartilage and the ligaments within a joint which can be very painful.

Women are three times more likely to have RA as men.

Most broken bones heal without any problems. After initial treatment, usually new bone tissue forms and connects the broken bone pieces together. However, in some patients some fractures do not heal despite medical treatment. A non-union fracture, also known as a non-healing fracture, occurs when a broken or fractured bone does not heal in the expected period of time.
