Marathon Man UK

The Putney Clinic is involved in providing the medical care for an amazing athlete called Rob Young. He is aiming to break the world record for the number of marathons completed in a year. So far, he has completed an incredible 232 marathons in just 218 days... in a kilt, to make the challenge even more interesting!

Inspired by the runners at this year's London Marathon, Rob is raising funds for the NSPCC, GOSH and Dreams Come True. These charities hold a special significance to Rob as he was a victim of abuse when growing up. To read Rob's full story, visit his website.

Dr Courtney Kipps is his sports doctor and John Durkin is his foot specialist. We will be providing Rob with massage, physiotherapy and osteopathy treatment as and when he requires it. He is raising a lot of money for children's charities, so we are providing complimentary care to him and his fiancee.

As a challenge like this merits, Rob has been getting more and more media attention. He will feature on Rugby Tonight on Monday 24th November (BT Sport 1). You can keep up to date with Rob's progress by following his @MarathonMan_UK account on Twitter.


Donations


If you would like to make a donation to Rob's challenge, you can do so on his Marathon Man UK Virgin Money Giving page. So far he has raised in excess of £23,000 and has set himself a target of £200,000. We at The Putney Clinic sincerely hope that he reaches this total!

Texting: is it becoming a pain in the neck?


By Clive D. Lathey D.O MSc (Sports Medicine), Registered Osteopath and Director of The Putney Clinic


We are starting to see young patients at the Putney Clinic in the 18-36 year age group with repetitive strain injuries (RSI) from excessive use of computers, iPads, smart phones and PlayStations. Common conditions that we regularly treat are: inflammatory tendon injuries of thumbs and fingers; tennis and golfers elbow from excessive use of the forearm muscles, and low back and neck pain from prolonged sitting in poor postural positions.


The increasing use of computers and smart phones, particularly in the younger population, will inevitably lead to a rise in the frequency of low back and neck pain and repetitive strain injuries. There is also concern about the physiological effects of sedentary behaviour and the associated health risks such as obesity, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. There is further concern about the link between sedentary behaviour and psychosocial health. Martin et al (2009 ), produced strong evidence linking increases in physical activity to improved mental health and psychosocial well-being.


We cannot turn the clock back and abandon our use of technology. However, we need to address prolonged sedentary behaviour as a new public health issue. Reducing sedentary time by encouraging higher volumes of light or moderate intensity physical activity is one of a range of measures which will help stop the decline.


Appointments



If you are noticing any pain while (or after) using your smart phone, tablet or gaming console, you may be suffering from a repetitive strain injury. For appointments with our team of Osteopaths, call us at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy on 0208 789 3881. Alternatively, you can use our online booking system or send us an email to info@putneyclinic.co.uk.

20-Minute Yoga Class with Sharath Jois




Slightly longer version of the one posted yesterday :-)

17 November 2014

10-Minute Yoga Class with Sharath Jois




I suppose this was always going to be a matter of time-Sharath Jois in an online yoga programme. I find it slightly odd seeing him in this plush studio setting ...this is so far removed from anything Ive experienced with Sharath, but with KPJAYI being so full perhaps this is the reason why he has branched into this?. Whilst this may be helpful for some nothing can replace the teacher/student relationship.

Postnatal rehabilitation

By Laura Tilson BA (Hons) M.Ost DPO
Registered and Paediatric Osteopath at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy


Here are my top tips for rehabilitation after having a baby:

  1. Avoid strenuous exercise for the first 6 weeks: you may have bruised and inflamed tissues that need to heal.
  2. Don't compare yourself to others: your pregnancy and birth will leave a unique footprint on you and your body. If something doesn't feel right, chances are it isn't. If something hurts, sit back and attempt the exercise again when you are stronger in a week or two.
  3. Walking is great: the movement of walking mobilises your pelvis, hips and lumbar spine to help with healing. Try doing pelvic floor exercises and avoid leaning over your buggy as you walk.
  4. Pelvic stability is key: all exercise should be conducted with a strong and stable pelvis and lumbar spine. This should be the first thing you address.
  5. Have faith in your body's ability to heal and strengthen.
  6. Look after your pelvic floor: especially when introducing running. If you have any incontinence issues or feel your pelvic floor isn't quite right do pelvic floor exercises and tell your GP.
  7. Give yourself time: it can take a year for your pregnancy hormones to settle and ligaments to tighten again. Give yourself a target of a year to get back to your old self physically.
  8. Consult experts: look for people who are specifically trained in post-natal care. Before you exercise talk to them about any concerns and make sure they check for abdominal separation (rectus diastasis).

Postnatal fitness


By Laura Tilson BA (Hons) M.Ost DPO
Registered and Paediatric Osteopath at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy


I have never felt as weak and physically vulnerable as I did after having my baby 5 months ago. It was immediately obvious the minute I tried to stand up after the labour and it was something I feel I was totally unprepared for. It is only in hindsight that I can see how frightened I might have been had I had a minute to think about myself and my body – rather than my baby and where his next feed was coming from. I couldn't sit up or turn in bed without using my arms, I waddled rather than walked for at least a week. My first few trips to the supermarket were a push. My back ached over the site of my epidural. I was shocked at how my muscles, despite exercising throughout my pregnancy, had weakened.

I know from my osteopathy training that during pregnancy ligaments stretch, muscles atrophy, fat is deposited and breasts grow. I also know that the occasional afternoon nap and eating cake feature more and more frequently during maternity leave.  All great for your growing baby and the birth, but a bit of a shock when you come out the other side.

Fast forward a few weeks (after my 6-week check) and I started a postnatal pilates and yoga class. A simple leg lift was impossible. Even getting up and down off the floor was difficult and, as a result, a little bit embarrassing. In yoga we focused on isolating the different muscles which make up the pelvic floor and I felt like I re-introduced my brain to my abdominal muscles. It felt like I had a long journey ahead of me but the results were quicker than I had expected. Even by week two I could lift my leg off the floor.

It is so important to start from the beginning and retrain the muscles that have stretched and worked so hard for you during your pregnancy. The "core" is a complicated network of muscles which support your spine. It is profoundly affected during pregnancy, as well as through both vaginal and caesarian births, and should be the first thing you rehabilitate. By doing so, you re-establish stability in the body and so avoid injury when you go back to normal exercise regimes.

Fast forward once more 5 months and I have put my name down for a triathlon sprint (read "marathon"). A 750 metre swim, 21km bike ride topped off with a 5km run. I finally feel that I am out of the rehabilitation phase and back to getting a base line fitness and attempting everything in the exercise classes I go to.

The benefits of postnatal osteopathy



By Laura Tilson BA (Hons) M.Ost DPO
Registered and Paediatric Osteopath at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy


As an osteopath I spend the majority of my time showing people how osteopathy can benefit them. But trying to persuade a busy mum that she should put herself first for half an hour a day to sort out her bad back or that dodgy shoulder will be my mantra for the rest of my career.

Mums are renowned for putting others first and bravely soldiering on – because they are mums and that's just what they do.  And now – as mother to a four month old little boy - I can see why.  My days blur into one – each a haze of coffee, marching around parks and attempts at housework, never mind trying to fit in brushing my hair or getting a little admin done.

So perhaps I am biased, but over the last few months I have seen for myself how osteopathy has helped me and my little boy. I have been for four treatments since having him. Once a month, I have carved out the time and made it a priority because I'm set on practicing what I preach. But the results speak for themselves.

The osteopath I saw sorted out the pain in my back where I had had an epidural by finding restricted joints in my back and tight muscles and getting them moving again. With massage and pressure over my upper back she helped to release aches from hours of bending over during feeds. With the gentlest touch and movement she helped to encourage my baby to look comfortably to the left (he only looked to the right after a fairly traumatic ventouse delivery).

So perhaps I am biased but I cannot rave about it enough. This, along with a slow and steady commitment to getting fit again has been my rehabilitation back to my old self and I could not be more grateful.

November NCT Talk: Baby massage

An introduction to baby massage

About the talk

Massage is the most natural and instinctive form of caring for the baby. New-born babies experience the world through their senses, such as touch, smell, taste, sound and vision. These senses are developing gradually, but from the moment of birth the baby already understands the language of touch.

Hajni Varadi, massage therapist, will be giving a short talk and introduction to baby massage here at the Clinic on Tuesday 4th November (11am - 12pm). The talk is free and is open to new and expectant parents alike.

More information and bookings


Spaces are limited, therefore booking is essential. If you would like more information about the talk or would like to attend, call us 020 8789 3881 or drop us an email at info@putneyclinic.co.uk, quoting November NCT Talk as the subject.

Cranial Osteopathy and Your Baby


Tuesday 7th October 2014, 11am - 12pm

More information and bookings


This talk is free of charge and is open to the general public. Places are limited, so booking is essential. To book your space, call us on 0208 789 3881 or send an email to info@putneyclinic.co.uk quoting October NCT talk as the subject.

SUPPORTING PREGNANT STUDENTS IN GENERAL YOGA CLASSES

 

SUNDAY 30 NOVEMBER 2014 (10AM-4PM)


Cherie Lathey will be holding a CPD workshop for yoga teachers at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy on Sunday 30th November 2014. The subject of the workshop is "Supporting Pregnant Students in General Yoga Classes". For full information about the workshop and booking details, see below.
 


ABOUT THE WORKSHOP


Pregnancy is an amazing personal journey for a woman, both mentally and physically. Practising yoga during pregnancy can help women adapt to these changes in a positive way.

Many yoga teachers often feel they do not have enough information or the confidence to integrate pregnant women into their general classes. This one day CPD workshop will be led by Cherie Lathey, Director and Senior Yoga Teacher of Yoga Mama, and is approved by Yoga Alliance UK. This will be both a discussion and practical workshop. Teachers will leave feeling confident they have the relevant information to safely support their pregnant students.

The workshop will include:
  • General precautions and guidelines
  • How hormones can affect your student both physically and emotionally
  • Common ailments of pregnancy and how to work with these to ease symptoms
  • The importance of transitional poses within a class
  • Suitable asana (poses) and modifications
  • Suitable breath work (pranayama)
  • Suitable rest poses
  • Mula bandha and the pelvic floor
  • Optimal foetal positioning for later stages of pregnancy


COST AND BOOKINGS

The price of this workshop is £65. To book your place on this workshop, call us on 0208 789 3881 or send an email to info@yogamama.co.uk.
