Welcome back for a (late) winter blog topic. In Australia winter is approaching its end, and many of the premier football codes are approaching the finals.

BSEMS October Blog

Matthew Hislop - Saturday, October 01, 2011

Well here we are in Spring, with the days getting longer and the urge to get out and exercise upon us once again. Overuse injuries can often be prevented with careful preparation and a graded increase in an exercise programme, but some injuries are quite unfair, come out of the blue, and keep you out for a long period. ACL ruptures are one of those, and the blog this month covers this (often) devastating injury. The staff at BSEMS (unfortunately) are experts in the diagnosis and coordinated management of this injury, so for this or any other problematic issue stopping you form doing what you want come and see usMore

BSEMS Winter Blog 2011

Matthew Hislop - Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Well after recommending that everyone lift their game and keep exercising through winter, it seems that we should practice what we preach! We missed the July Blog, and tend to blame short days, cold mornings, and repeat doses of the flu as an excuse! To make up this month we have a blog about Patellofemoral Syndrome- a very common cause of knee pain in exercisers that can be frustrating to manage. Rest assured that the experts at BSEMS will help you with diagnosis, investigations, and appropriate rehab. Until Spring- happy exercising!
