Editors comment: prescription pitfalls

We have some strong clinical issues for you in this issue of Frontline.

Robert Millett’s article on the impact of prescription drugs on your patients is a salutary reminder of how easy it is to get ‘hooked’ on medication. It’s so important, as a physiotherapist, to be aware of the impact these drugs can have on a person’s health: it’s not always a positive one.
The articles on hip dysplasia should also be of interest. Clinical update provides a factual overview of the condition but our Three minutes interview slot, in which we hear from physio student M-J Sharp, puts a human face on the facts. These are timely, given that June is Hip Dysplasia Awareness Month.
And so to this issue’s cover wrap. As any physio knows, motivation is key to patients’ success on the road to recovery. The latest video case studies from our Love Activity, Hate Exercise? campaign should help to inspire you and your patients. If you’re enthused by what you see and want to be part of our campaign to promote physical activity, we encourage you to sign up for a resource pack here. .
To start you off, we hope you’ll already have noticed the campaign poster wrapped around the cover of your copy of Frontline. Put it up in your clinic – we hope it will help you to start those all-important activity conversations with your patients!
