Health: Physical and Mental

As a physical therapist specialising in the treatment of workplace injuries, I’d like to think that I’m a moderately healthy person, if only by virtue of being informed on the latest findings in exercise science and nutrition.

Keeping My Promise To The Children

Here’s how the story goes. Saturday afternoon, a dull throb starts pulsing throughout my face, radiating from my jaw and the tooth that sometimes feels non-compliant.

My wife wants a new garden

My wife had a crazy idea come to her in the middle of the night. She shot out of bed like a rocket and darted out of the room. I had no idea what was going on, only half realising what was happening. I must have fallen back to sleep because I woke up in …
