Latest News

Here at the Iveson Clinic, we embrace the chance to share ongoing news and updates about developments in physiotherapy practice, key case studies, chiropractic treatments and articles of interest to share with our readers. Latest news from the Iveson Clinic, news about new staff and even occasional giveaways!

If you browse recent posts, there are some interesting blogs, such as “Hip Arthroscopy- a hot topic”, which discusses Andy Murray’s recent surgery. An article on dizziness outlines the different causes and tests and possible treatment options such as the Epley Manoeuvre. There are also articles on inflammatory backache, the most common form known as Ankylosing Spondylitis, and a further blog discusses knee arthroscopy or keyhole surgery to the knee. Recent research has found that treatment of degenerative arthritis of the knee combined with meniscal tears does just as well with physiotherapy and exercise as opposed to knee arthroscopy.

A blog on World Acupuncture Day discusses some potential benefits of acupuncture, with evidence regarding treatments for shoulder, tennis elbow, knee, back pain and headaches. A further article titled, “Keep on running”, discusses how trigger point needling is becoming increasingly popular in the sporting world due to the rapid effect it has on pain arising from tense muscles and myofascial tissue.

Latest news also comments on topical issue related to the time of year, such as early spring and everyone getting out in the garden, to winter time and slipping over on the ice!

If you find our latest news blogs of interest, why not like the Iveson Clinic on Facebook, where articles are regularly available, as well as occasional giveaway promotions.

(Physiotherapists and Chiropractors have to undertake a certain number of hours CPD training each year to stay abreast of current developments and evidence based treatments.)

A Warm Welcome to a Returning Member of Staff

A new member of staff has recently joined the Iveson Clinic, or rather an old colleague has returned! Katie McLernon qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 2010 and began work at the Iveson Clinic in 2011 on a part-time basis, as well as working for the NHS for several years. She then went travelling and worked abroad. After spending a year working as a physiotherapist in Singapore, Katie returned to the UK and we are excited that she has chosen to come back to work at the Iveson Clinic. Katie’s special areas of interest are managing chronic injuries, sports injuries and paediatrics. She has qualifications in clinical Pilates, which she uses to assess and treat chronic injuries. She can also provide one to one Pilates sessions, to enable patients to gain good foundation knowledge and technique, either to help their recovery or prior to commencing Pilates classes elsewhere. Katie is also very passionate about providing stroke rehabilitation and this can be done either in the Clinic or as a home visit. She is proud to have had fantastic results with stroke patients, in improving balance, walking and restoring function in patient’s limbs. Katie will be treating patients at the Iveson Clinic on Thursdays, as well as offering home/domiciliary visits....
