WHY? National Performance Centre for Sport at Heriot-Watt University

Today we had the news that Heriot-Watt University campus is going to be the site of the new Scottish National Performance Centre for Sport.

I can't understand why Heriot-Watt won the bid for the National Performance Centre for Sport. This is going to be the place where Scottish sports people are helped to achieve sporting excellence,

#heriotwattuniversity appears to have no history of helping develop this. Having a look at their website it also appears to offer no courses in this area either. One of the aims of the new centre is "It will serve as world class facilities for sports science and medicine all linked together by a spectacular sports promenade."

How long will it take to develop the faculty to put the training in place, because a part publicly funded facility should be looking to train people that can deliver to grassroots sport to allow the next generation of sporting stars to grow an thrive at centres like this.

Why weren't educational centres that already have the people in place chosen? if staff are poached won't this weaken the existing places and won't this duplication waste public funds?

What do you think?

Scotlands hardest Ultrarun

Paul Giblin one of Glasgow osteopaths sponsored ultrarunners raced, won and set a new course record on this near 100mile run. Here's his report of the 2013 West Highland Way race in his normal modest tone #WHWrace2013

Have a read and see what you can do with a "little" training and a lot of perseverance.

There are loads of great blogs written already about this year’s race and hundreds more from earlier races so rather than cover most of the same I thought I’d be better just trying to answer the ac...

Tips on Getting Kids to Eat Vegetables

Following on from a post from +Michael Burt I thought I'd share a tip I use at home to get my kids to eat their VEG.

Take the Kids to the garden centre. Get them to choose a packet of seeds. They then have to prepare the ground/soil. Sow the seeds and look after them until harvest. Next is the best bit....Eating them.

I believe that this approach teaches them a lot. My kids know where the fruit and veg comes from. It teaches them responsibility; (they have to water them etc, patience; they have to wait until they're ready to eat. They also learn how to prepare and cook them.

You might be amazed at what we've managed to grow in pots, tubs and window boxes. So next spring give it a go.

Do you have any tips to get kids to eat fresh food? leave them below

High Hamstring Tendinopathy

High hamstring tendinopathy can be a right pain in the butt. It gives you pain on sitting. It's often associated with middle and long distance runners, but can happen after sciatica or after a slip. Do you have it?

Back Pain and Your Mattress

Do you realise that your bed and mattress may be causing back pain?

Been following the news about Cyprus today and the crazy decision to tax savers. This got me thinking more people will be keeping any savings they have under the mattress. 

As an osteopath I can't advise you on the best mattress to hide your money under, but I can help you choose the best one for your back. Who knows they may be one and the same.
 
It is National Bed Month!  Do you like your bed? And does it like you?  Read more about how to find out if your mattress could be causing your back or neck problems, and how to choose a new one!   http://backpainwestlondon.co.uk/national-bed-month/
Tracy can help advise you on choosing a mattress that can help prevent back pain or neck pain. Book in today 020 3143 3163 - backpainwestlondon.co.uk.

Quick Mattress Guide

If you can slide your fist between the small of your back and the mattress. Then it's too hard. If you can't slide an open hand between the small of your back and the mattress then it's too soft. There is more to consider than this. Ask an osteopath. We really can help you choose the correct mattress for you.

Life was difficult 5 years ago, recurrent neck and back problems coupled with exhaustion caused by ME which were severely restricting my ability and motivation to undertake the everyday activities I needed and wished to carry out . Mad as it sounds but each day for 6 months I looked at the framed picture which sat on the floor of my flat completely unmotivated to hang it on the wall. Such a simple task to complete but a good example of the apathy that had set in. Thanks to Daniel’s conscientious approach, passion, skill and abilities to quickly diagnose & successfully treat both the neck pain & ME (through the Perrin technique) my quality of life has improved to a point where the aforementioned scenarios area thing of the past. My very occasional “ maintenance “ revisit serves as a good reminder how my health has improved beyond recognition

Daniel is without doubt the best Osteopath i've ever seen. I've had back pain for years which had stopped me doing the things I loved doing, and stopped me trying new things for fear of making worse or starting again. after a few treatments I noticed I could put my socks on easier and my back wasn't painful when I got out of bed, and it kept getting better. I started playing sport again, getting my toddler into her cot and strapped into the car seat doesn't hurt any more. it's as if Daniels careful treatment has given my life back again
