Welcome to 2012!

We are hoping that this year we can help bring you a happier, healthier approach to your body and an insight in how to achieve this. We are happy to offer exercise, rehabilitation and even some nutrition advice to help you achieve your health and fitness goals for the year ahead.

Also, a very special thank you to everyone who helped the practice thrive last year. All the word of mouth recommendations to colleagues, family and friends helped to spread the good reputation of the practice and we are very honoured and grateful for your support.


Are You Planning on Going Skiing or Snow Boarding?

Many people have plans for skiing this Half Term and Spring and we are happy to help with any pre-existing injuries before your holiday. Planning well is the key to happy skiing… We can help with injury prevention by giving advice on how to care for yourself prior to and during your skiing week. Mark does Kinesio-Sport Taping which will stay on for your entire week of holiday – it is waterproof and will provide added protection against injury. So, should you have a previous weakness in leg muscles or joints or in the spine please let us know and we can help you.

Should you injure yourself Skiing or Snow Boarding the cardinal rule is always RICE for any sprains or muscle injury in the first 48 hours.

R is rest the area that you have injured. Continuing to use the injured limb will not enable the healing process to start and can do more damage.

I is apply ice to the area that you have injured. Usually ten minutes per hour and wrap the ice pack in a tea towel rather than apply directly to the skin.

C is compression for the area you have injured to reduce swelling. Try an elastic bandage.

E is elevation for the area you have injured to help reduce swelling eg twisted ankle.

We are happy to receive emails or texts from the mountain should you just need some quick advice!


From all of us at Kingston & Teddington Osteopathy we wish you a fit and healthy 2012!
