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

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?

The clinic is open!

(online treatment still available)

The Prime Minister’s announcement on 1 Nov was clear that medical services should continue, and that people who need medical appointments should continue to attend them. Therefore the clinic will remain open, with everything wipe-clean and COVID-safe.

"Virtual first" continues...

However, the current government advice is that I have to see patients online before I can see you in clinic, and that I should only see you face to face (or mask to mask!) if we both agree that the benefits of hands-on treatment outweigh the risks of coronavirus transmission.  If hands-on treatment is not the most appropriate option for you, then I will continue to offer online treatment for the foreseeable future.

So please call my team on 0207 175 0150 and book your physio appointment as usual – or to read more about the COVID-safe measures we’re taking, please click the button to continue reading.
