We have just uploaded Craig Allingham's new ebook on preparation for and recovery from prostate surgery. This outlines his five level program and contains live links to explanations and exercises.

The article by Craig called, 'The Great Ankle Swindle' has been published in the UK journal In Touch. So it can now be released here as well. Click here to find out how rehab is selling ankle sprains down the tube and what may be necessary to reverse the reinjury trend.
A new study suggests autologous blood injections (ABI) may be an improvement on steroid injections alone for a particular type of rotator cuff tear in the shoulder.
What a load of wishful thinking. When I was a trainee physiotherapist studying human gait and locomotion skills my tutor pointed out that walking is a process of constantly losing balance in a forward direction, and catching it again by thrusting out a leg. Repeat and you have walking. Repeat at speed and you have running. Don't repeat and you have standing still, which itself is a constant process of almost losing balance and automatically correcting to remain stable.
Fantastic News: the current issue of Australian Woman's Day magazine has a positive mention and cover shot of Mary O'Dwyer's new book - Hold It Mama - the pelvic floor and core handbook for pregnancy, birth and beyond. This is of course a Redsok publication.
Just back from an excellent conference in Wagga Wagga on hand therapy. Lots of enthusiastic physio and occupational therapists keen to lift their skills to even higher levels. Congratulations to Amy and her team at Riverina Hand Therapy for organising one of the best events I have attended this year. It was an honour to be part of the program.
What a fabulous weekend in Moree, NSW. 35 blokes and almost 60 gorgeous women participated in our men's and women's health workshops last weekend. The men learned blokey stuff from Craig like how to lift safely, protect their shoulders, defend their prostate and reduce their waistlines. The women had a masterclass in pelvic floor preservation from the DownUnder Physio Mary O'Dwyer. The support and welcome from Moree people was once again country hospitality at its best. Thanks Tina Clyne, their top notch physio who coordinated the event.
After attending the International Continence Society Conference in Toronto, Craig and Mary visited the NY Sports Medicine Clinic in Manhattan. We were invited to visit one of their three clinics by Adam Banks, their Business Director. The end result was an agreement to contribute to their online presence - The PT Project blog with Mary initiating a women's health section. Check it out.
