Choosing the Correct
AGE 35 | BUSINESS OWNER
I am a 35-year-old woman with my own dressmaking business. I use my hands a lot and rely on them for my work. I recently started playing tennis again and after 3 weeks started to get a sore shoulder. It is so painful that I can’t lift my arm to shoulder height. I can’t sleep on it and the pain wakes me up at night. Should I see a doctor?
AGE 16 | HOCKEY PLAYER
For 3 months I have had pain in the front of my knees. Last night I stepped on a stick and my foot slipped out while my knee dropped inwards and I heard a “popping” sound. It is very painful and I can barely bend my knee. Should I see a Biokineticist or a Physiotherapist?
AGE 53 | CEO
I work tirelessly and have recently started to see a dip in my health. I have a few chronic health conditions and I am worried my downward spiral won’t stop. Am I allowed to exercise, and what kind of exercise should I be doing?
AGE 60 | GOLFER
I have lower back pain which is gradually getting worse. It really hurts when I bend to pick up my ball, or if I have to lift heavy or awkward objects. I have had X-rays and my GP says I need to strengthen my core. Where do I start?
BACK & HIP
AGE 40 | OFFICE JOB
I do CrossFit almost every single day. I don't think I'm injured but my coach and I have noticed during weighted squats and lunges that my ankle isn't stable - it almost rolls. I can feel my body leaning to one side when I carry weight. I am worried it’s going to affect my training. What should I do?
AGE 23 | OFFICE JOB
I am at my office desk in front of a computer all day. I suffer from chronic headaches and neck tension. I have tried acupuncture and massage but the headaches keep coming back. I’ve heard through friends that exercise may help – is this true?
