Posted on: September 25th, 2018 by Carli Bennett

I have had babies.  I get it. When I began working as a physiotherapist I never thought pelvic health would be the field for me. And then I had a baby… and another baby… and things just didn’t feel the same down there as they did before. Not only this, I also had lots of ‘mom’ friends […]

When weight management, physiotherapy and medications don’t provide relief, you may be required to wait until age 65 to qualify for a joint replacement. The time between non-surgical treatment failure and the time when patients qualify for a joint replacement is often referred to by doctors as the “treatment gap“.  Now, thanks to a new […]
