As a Advanced Physiotherapist Practitioner, my passion has always been to help people try to achieve their maximum level of function; focussing on the things they can do, as opposed to the things they can’t. 

Like so many of us, my 2020 didn't really go according to plan. The original plan was to spend the best part of 12-18 months travelling the world... but COVID had other ideas for us! We managed six weeks and had to return home.

 

When I arrived back in the UK, it was clear more people were attempting to manage their injuries and conditions from home. With this in mind, I decided to look at what was available online for people to help themselves and was shocked to discover the abundance of poorly evidenced, negative misinformation that was readily accessible on many conditions but particularly back pain, osteoarthritis & persistent pain. All of which is more likely to be negatively affecting your health, instead of improving it.

 

I am hugely passionate about trying to help people understand their pain and how it really works. There has been a big shift in recent years with people appreciating the link between physical and mental health, in fact it is nearly everywhere you look post pandemic. Which is good news! However, pain never seems to get a mention.

9 million people in the U.K. & 55 million people in the U.S. suffer from osteoarthritis. Persistent pain (any pain that has lasted longer than 3 months) affects 43% of the population in the U.K., which rises to 62%, in the over 75s. It affects over 20 million people in the U.S. and is more prevalent than diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer combined. Yet, the evidence tells us that we are managing both very poorly.

 

I strongly believe if you don't have an accurate and up to date understanding of your condition and the treatments available to you then it's impossible to manage it optimally. This requires time (something we have very little of in the NHS), care, empathy and a little hard work from you. The aim of Genuine Physio is to educate, support and help you to manage your condition independently.

At the start of lockdown, I set out on a mission - to confront misinformation head on; and provide accurate, evidence based information to as many people across the world as possible.
