At the Spine and Sports Injury clinic Thanet (SSi), covering Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate, we have started organising ‘drop in clinics’ to help people identify if treatment can aid recovery of a pain complaint they may be suffering.
People can spend long periods in a seated position and, when a poor ergonomic set up is used, can suffer discomfort and strain to their neck or back.
Here is my ice bucket challenge in recognision of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Motor Neurone Disease (MND). However, in line with the various reports calling into question the practices of the ALS association I have made my donation to the UK MND association.
My name is Alexander Pouros, company director of The Spine and Sports Injury Clinic (SSi) in Thanet, Kent. My background comes from the fitness industry when I first qualified with a diploma in fitness instruction and sports therapy in 2002, allowing me to begin working in GYMs as an instructor and personal trainer. 2 years later I decided that training as an Osteopath would allow me to develop my skills and help me progress towards understanding and treating a number of musculo-skeletal complaints. With this in mind I began the 5 year degree programme and qualified as an Osteopath in 2009.
