Frontline staff on the physio news affecting you.

  • 30 Jun 2015 - 11:51am
    We’ve another packed issue of Frontline for you: pain, posture and promotion being the themes in our features (pages 24 onwards). But it was Andy Lord’s article on promoting physiotherapy that really caught my eye (page 32). 
     
    CSP members probably don’t like to think of themselves as a sales force. But as Andy, a CSP professional adviser and a physio, points...

    Puppy love

    In a recent edition of Supervet on TV a Staffordshire Bull terrier puppy had quite extensive corrective orthopaedic surgery on his elbows. He stayed in the vet hospital for three months and had daily hydrotherapy and animal physiotherapy. The programme mentioned that he had had 126 physiotherapy sessions and had made a fantastic recovery. While this is fantastic news for...

    They made sure this year’s event, which raises awareness about the importance of good physical and mental health in the workplace, was a resounding success.
     
    In sessions held across the UK, more than 900 members showcased the importance of public health and occupational health and proved that physio staff can design stimulating activities that benefit everyone....

    Different strokes

    The News in pictures feature in the 20 May issue reported that the number of people in their 40s and 50s who are having strokes is ‘soaring’. Readers might be interested to hear a recent edition of the More or Less programme on Radio 4 titled ‘Strokes, teachers, confused computers’ (broadcast on 15 May but available on the BBC iPlayer).

    Many of you will be looking forward to a summer holiday. This year, I’m taking an ‘austerity break’. Rather than jetting off to southern Europe, I’m walking along the Thames Path in stages, starting at the Thames Barrier in Greenwich last Christmas Eve. The next leg is Maidenhead to Pangbourne (not even half way yet). 
     
    Wish me luck with reaching the river’s...

    So, we have a new, majority government in Westminster. And the UK’s political landscape is looking very different from this time last year. What will it all mean to physio services and physiotherapy staff? And to your patients?
     
    The CSP will continue to campaign on your behalf with the four key messages used in the lead up to the election: fair pay; fewer falls;...

    Sudden blow

    I am a retired paediatric physiotherapist, and in June 2014 was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a progressive, untreatable lung condition, after a wait of six months. This was a devastating blow as my husband has severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and I was his carer. Now we are mutual carers! 
     
    The diagnosis...

    The CSP played a significant role in the proceedings, as our Physio Findings column outlines. And, as the World Confederation of Physiotherapy’s outgoing president, Marilyn Moffat, said: ‘We all have a responsibility to make the world better for those we serve.’
     
    That’s true...

    About 150 CSP members gathered at the Curl sports centre in Aberdeen last month. It would be hard to think of a more appropriate fitting venue for an awareness-raising Physiotherapy Works event in Scotland. Not only did the sport of curling originate in Scotland, but the setting also gave delegates opportunities to watch groups of older competitors playing games on the ice during delegates’...

    But, as chief executive Karen Middleton told the CSP’s annual representative conference in Manchester, being a political football is of no help to anyone. 
     
    Of course – as you’d expect – delegates spoke about their pay, jobs and working conditions, whether in the NHS or elsewhere. In high-quality debates, they voiced concerns at working unpaid overtime and...
