The Use Of Kinesio Tape Following Surgery

I've been using Kinesio Tape for a long time now and have found some pretty good uses for it. One of them is to improve tissue healing post surgery. As a Physiotherapist I mainly used it to treat my clients following surgeries such as: Total Hip Replacement (THR), Total Knee Replacement (THR), ACL Repairs, Shoulder Replacement Surgery, Ankle Ligament Repairs and various Lumbar Spine surgeries. 

Dental Hygiene And Its Role in Healthy Living

Last week I went for my routine teeth clean at  Keizers Mondzorg in Amsterdam. I've been using a new electric toothbrush for the last few months but am not overly impressed by the results. After speaking with Marie-Anne my hygienist there was some inflammation of my gums which needed to be addressed. Luckily I have fairly strong healthy teeth but it's important to keep your gums healthy also.

Acupuncture And The Treatment Of Migraines

There is significant research that had been conducted to show that acupuncture can be helpful with treating migraine frequency, severity and associated symptoms. Large, randomised controlled clinical trials involving several thousand patients have now been conducted, funded by German health insurance companies. These studies have compared acupuncture with standard treatment (drugs and advice given by physicians) and demonstrate persistent and clinically relevant benefits under real-life conditions and equivalence to specialist drug management.
