Logan Rees – Scotland International – Top Ranked British Under 23 in 2017 for 10km Road (29m28s)
Big thank you to Logan for answering some questions for us in the clinic at Bodyworks Edinburgh and for allowing us to publish results from his treatments with us.
Logan came to see us regarding an ongoing foot issue he has had since 2014. He saw Raul our Physiotherapist for a total of 4 sessions…
45mins Physiotherapy Initial 01/02/18
Raul’s Account: “Patient attended the NHS in 2014 due to a sudden and constant pain underneath the first toe, beginning of the first phalange, on the right foot, with a mild swollen metatarsophalangeal joint. He could not run because of the pain. After several tests there was still no diagnosis for his pain. He was then seen by a private Physiotherapist who did massage and exercises for the calf and recommended a steroid injection to ease the pain. He received this privately in December 2015. Logan found the injection lowered the pain allowing him to start running again in March 2016 but not without some discomfort. He has been unable to get this injury completely resolved.
Logan finds that self-massage on the area with a spiky ball helps as well as running will stiff shoes with good support. Soft shoes seem to make it worse (they allow more toe movement).
I could see that swelling was present and that the toe was externally deviated (Mild bunion). I found as well a great deal of tension on all lower leg muscles, especially on the 1st toe flexors on the right, making it slightly stiffer than on the other foot. Pain was noted when running and on direct touch on the insertion of the Flexor Hallicus Brevis.”
Diagnosis by Raul: Tendinitis of the Plantar Flexors of the 1st toe on the right foot.
Treatment: Massage to the calve muscles
Home care Advice: Specific stretches for Gastrocnemius and Soleus to release tension on the specific tendon causing the pain.
Logan’s Account: “During the first appointment with Raul, we discussed my injury history with particular focus on the long-term foot/toe injury that prevented me from running from May 2014 to around March 2016. Raul had some ideas on how to treat this and he also took some photos to show the extent of the swelling on my right foot. He thought with treatment that the excess skin might become reabsorbed and my feet would end up similar sizes again. In the first session, Raul gave me a short massage on my upper calf. He also showed me some specific stretches to work on for next time to generally loosen my calf so that he could try to release the tension on the specific tendon that was causing pain.”
Norma, 83 year old female presenting with first signs of Dupuytren’s Contracture
Physiotherapy Initial: Client presented with first signs of Dupuytren’s contracture (a condition in which one or more fingers become permanently bent in a flexed position. It usually begins as small hard nodules just under the skin of the palm) on the 3rd finger on right hand, creating dry and pale skin with adhesion’s in the pathway of the 3rd finger flexors tendon limiting its movement. A year ago Norma stated it started affecting the carpal tunnel compressing the median nerve creating paresthesia on 3rd and 4 finger.
Her grip in both hands is weak, but even weaker on her right hand. Things has been falling from her right hand lately as she has been unable to keep grip.
She had a fall two years ago falling on her right arm and fractured T8 to T12.
“I have found all my treatments from Raul very good so much so that I have now been discharged. After having loss of sensation in 3,4,5fingers on my right hand and minimal strength in my grip when I started treatment, this problem has been resolved”
