On Statins? Beware

It never ceases to amaze me that so many people who take medications have no idea that need to be wary about eating certain foods. The one that I see in clinic again and again are Statins.

Grapefruit & Statins?

Grapefruit & Statins?

Many people taking statins do not know that they should avoid grapefruit. This fruit slows down how the body breaks down the drug and you have more than you should do in the blood stream. So when taking medication please check the instructions in the packet BEFORE taking them!

Osteopathy – Treating your Pain wherever it Strikes

Many people know how osteopathy can successfully treat back pain, but osteopathic treatments can be equally effective on many other aches, pain & injuries.

Pills Are Not Always Necessary

Your doctor may well give you pills to treat your ache, pain or muscular injury and sometimes they are effective. But often when you stop taking the pills – the pain returns. An osteopath won’t give you pills, but may well cure your pain. Why not take your pain to an osteopath?

The Hard Battle Back to the Top – an Athlete’s Tale

I believe athletics is much more about the mental game than it is the physical. You could be the fastest runner in the world but if you don’t believe in yourself you will not get anywhere. If you haven’t got the mental stability to be the best, it will never happen.

This is a problem which I have come across the past year or so. I lost all belief in my talent and was on the verge of giving upRobbie Clarricoats in action athletics. After long hard thoughts and talks with my parents, coach and mentors at Cedar Hall my mind set has changed again and I’m back! I haven’t competed this year due to the lack of training and self-belief but I am now back training to get in the best possible shape for next season and to make sure I am back racing with the best hurdlers in the country and hopefully the World one day.

Since starting my athletics career in 2009 I have had much success on the track. Starting in 2012 where I managed to get myself an England kit and an International medal. After this achievement the hard work started, it wasn’t just for fun anymore it was for real. Every athlete who was near the top of the rankings, including me, were all training 110% to be the best.  2013 was the season I become part of Team Cedar Hall, This season went just as planned, I medalled at the English schools and had high hopes for the oncoming season.

At the end of the 2013 season I decided to change coach, which was the best thing I could have done at this stage of my career, still young and still lots more to learn. My pre-season training went really well and I was in great shape for the 2014 season, however race after race it just wasn’t happening. My hurdling would go perfect in training and then terrible in my races. This is what affected me mentally.

The indoor season was best forgotten and I tried to concentrate on the outdoor season, After the few months out thinking about what I really wanted I decided I really want to become one of the best, so I got back into training. With a good mentality back going into training for the indoor season I picked up an injury which knocked me down again. Having recovered fully from my injury and now getting back into training with the right frame of mind,  I look forward to turning my athletics career back into a successful career and push on to be the athlete I aspire be. 

Without the help of Cedar Hall I would not be the person or athlete I am today and hopefully from now on there will be many successful years to come.

Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries are often the result of overuse and over training, such as runner’s knee or tennis elbow where the athlete pushes his/her body to the limit. Sports injuries can also occur due to under training or poor training practices. Not stretching or having a good warm up regime can also lead to injury as the body is not prepared for the exercise.

So whether you are a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, osteopathy can help with prevention of injury as well as treatment of many common sporting or recreational injuries. Ankle and shoulder injuries are very common in amateur and professional sport. These injuries are often neglected or poorly treated which can lead to recurrence and early degenerative conditions.

Some common sporting injuries are neck & back strain, shoulder, elbow & wrist injuries e.g. tennis/golf elbow, hip, knee, leg & ankle injuries, groin strain, achilles tendonitis, cartilage/ligament strain and more.

Easter Chicks Arrive at Cedar Hall Clinics

With Easter just around the corner we were delighted when these two little chaps arrived at our clinics. First to “hatch” was little Mr Purple who is now roosting proudly on our Reception desk at our Benfleet clinic. He was followed very quickly by little Mr Green who is sitting proud at our Thurrock clinic.

Happy Easter to you all!
