On behalf of our team, I would like to welcome you to our first edition of Move Better for Life for 2021. In this edition, I am excited to announce that we are now providing occupational therapy services out of our Armidale clinic and are hiring for Tamworth. I’m also pleased to advise that our Armidale-based exercise physiologist Shae Flynn has returned to work after taking time off for maternity leave. In Tamworth, we have welcomed a new physiotherapist with a focus on sports rehabilitation, Paddy Bowen. While many of you may know Ben Fittler as one of our wonderful Armidale receptionists, what you may not know is that he is now a qualified massage therapist. And our wellness classes have all recommenced for the year.
One of the most common injuries to the feet is plantar fasciitis, which is an inflammation of the muscle which supports the arch of your foot. It’s very common and is often caused by changes to footwear, walking barefoot (such as on the beach during holidays) or through sporting stress. But, through regular exercise and preventative stretching you can reduce both the pain and frequency.
