Learning the Brachial Plexus



As exams get closer one has to decide what to focus on in terms of revision. Some things are more obvious than others and probably one of the most obvious is learning the brachial plexus. Knowing the muscles and innervation of the upper limb is going to be essential for us future osteopaths and the way that I've found it easiest to learn it all is by knowing the brachial plexus.

To help me to learn the brachial plexus I've drawn up this diagram in Illustrator so that I've got a high quality image to revise from. Please feel free to download it and use it for your own reference.

Coming soon: learning the lumbosacral plexus...

Mobility Scooters - improving quality of life


For the elderly or disabled, getting around can be a real problem and a cause of frustration and depression. Disabled Scooters and portable wheelchairs such as those from Mobility Buddy, a Nottingham-based company which specialises in motor scooters and a range of walking aids and living aids.

It's not just zimmer frames and commodes although they do sell those too! It's more about improving quality of life and allowing people some freedom of movement and independence.

They've also just created a new blog which is well worth a look: Mobility Buddy Blog.

Congratulations to Dan Hardy!

I've been treating Dan for some time now and after his recent win over Daniel Weichel at Ultimate Force in Doncaster, he announced that he has signed for a 4 fight deal with the UFC. There is no one more deserving than Dan of fighting in the UFC, he's an awesome fighter and coach... and a great customer!

All the best Dan, can't wait to see you flying the flag in the UFC!
