I blog regularly

Writing about injuries, treatment and assessment techniques, case studies, and anything that seems relevant and newsworthy! If you have anything I have not yet written about but that you would like to read my opinion on, then please email admin@nellmead.com and ask!

Can my dodgy posture cause my shoulder pain?

A lot of our patients worry about their posture – and as we all spend more time sitting, it’s becoming really important. This week, Nell looks at how posture can affect your shoulder pain

This could be why your head hurts…

Headaches are really common, and are often blamed on stress, dehydration or loud noises – but did you know they can also be linked to your posture? 

Help! I just injured my ankle!

If you’ve just twisted or injured your ankle, when should you go and get medical help? How can you tell if it’s a fracture or a sprain? Read on to find out 

Why are ankles so important?

We use our ankles all the time without thinking anything of it – but the truth is, they’re delicate and finely tuned bits of kit. 

Anyone for tennis (elbow)?

Tennis elbow isn’t all about the elbows – it can even come from the wrist or shoulder. So if you’re having problems with your serve, how can you get the right help?

How to plan for an injury free season

It’s that time of year again – but if you’re looking at getting in shape for the next season, how do you make sure you steer clear of injuries?

Do you have any questions that I can help with?

Treatment goes on

(but it's now online)

Due to the “London lockdown” I have had no alternative but to close the doors to my new clinic. I will be constantly reviewing all government updates and will let you know as soon as anything changes.

The good news

The good news is that, although the treatment room has had to close, this doesn’t mean that treatment has to stop.

It is really important all my patients do not lose momentum in their recoveries and I am glad to say I have a number of solutions to ensure I can carry on providing the best treatment possible:

  • Physiotherapy treatment: switching to online
  • Keeping in touch: email me!  I’m contacting my patients regularly
  • Online Training, Pilates and Yoga
  • Advice on how can you help yourself and stay healthy
