Our emphasis is on the correction of movement dysfunction which can be the cause of problems such as spinal pain, sports injuries or work related musculoskeletal problems.

We will then prescribe a treatment program that may include evidence based methods such as:
- hands on manual therapy (mobilisation, manipulation)

Real Time Ultrasound
SquareOne Physio’s use Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS) as an assessment and teaching tool for core muscle retraining. Research has shown that activation of the deep lumbar stabilising muscles (transverses abdominis, multifidus and pelvic floor) is reduced in patients with a history of chronic lumbo-pelvic musculoskeletal dysfunction. Reactivation and strengthening of the deep stabilising muscles has been shown to result in reduced levels of pain and improved function compared to non-specific conventional abdominal strengthening exercises in patients with chronic lumbar spine dysfunction.
RTUS is a teaching tool that can be used in patients with conditions such as degenerative disc disease, facet joint arthritis, spondylolisthesis, post abdominal surgery, hip and pelvic pain, post pregnancy low back pain and non-specific low back pain related to motor control abnormalities. It allows patients to see their muscles on a screen as they learn to activate them and thus provides invaluable feedback for rehabilitation and motor relearning of these previously hard to visualise muscle groups. We also use Real Time Ultrasound as a retraining tool for certain hip and shoulder joint injuries.

Happy Birthday to our fabulous physio Lauren! We hope you enjoyed your cake and have a great day!
Many times when we have pain we wonder how much damage there is involved, Most people probably think "the worse the pain, the worse the injury” or “if it doesn’t hurt, the problem is fixed”, but is that correct? Does pain equate to pathology? How can we tell whether our pain matches the tissue damage?
The pelvic floor is the name of the group of muscles that support your pelvic organs at the bottom of your pelvis. Although showing some anatomical differences between genders, these muscles exist in both women and men and are responsible for the control of your bladder and bowel.
In men, these muscles are also important for erectile function and ejaculation. In women, the pelvic floor contributes to sexual arousal, supports the baby during pregnancy, assists the birthing process and is also linked to orgasm.
The pelvic floor is like a hammock that supports the pelvic organs in the pelvis (bladder, uterus and rectum). When working normally, they relax to allow urination, bowel movements and, in women, intercourse. When they contract, they close the urethra and the anus, stopping urine and faeces from exiting.
Pelvic floor dysfunctions can result from:
Pelvic floor symptoms might present as one or more of the following:
If you’re not already running you’ll find training for minimos starts to enter into your minds over the next few weeks (well it should anyway!). With any new type of training you may develop some muscle soreness. A common question to us is “how can I tell the difference between a potential injury or just muscle soreness?”
Here are a few facts about Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (commonly known as DOMS) which will help you decide whether you are injured or not and whether need to seek some advice from your Physio:
