And Christmas is just around corner! Are you fit for the festive season?
With only eight weeks to go until Christmas and the holiday season, and what may seem like an endless round of parties and shopping, it’s a good time to take stock and and pay attention to your personal health and well being. We often have patients come in the week before Christmas for help with their back pain or plantar fasciitis in the hope we can sort it before Christmas, the holidays, and the relatives arrive. It can often take a good six weeks to sort out these aches and pains. So if your are harbouring any aches or twinges don’t put it off, make an appointment to get checked out.
If you are feeling fighting fit, and would like to stay that way, read our newsletter for six tips you may find useful as we head into the party season.
And we’re hiring. Do you know our next employee?
The Collaborative Model of Care, enhancing rehabilitation outcomes.
Our CEO and Principal Physiotherapist, Deborah Hunter has returned from her epic travel adventures and true to form she is focused on fully implementing our ground breaking, collaborative model of care. We’ve been achieving really great results for our clients and is a really useful model of care for those with older relatives or as we get older ourselves and want to remain in our own homes.
We believe passionately in taking a holistic approach to client treatment. Our motto has always been to help people move better for life and of course that, and coinciding with the opening of our Tamworth clinic, was the principle behind our recent name change. To this end, our team has been working on further developing and formalising our care model.
How to make sure you are fully prepared for your next holiday.
This month, Deb Hunter, our CEO and Principal Physiotherapist, will be taking a break from the cold of New England to go trekking. As part of planning for her trip, she has taken extensive preparations to ensure she remains injury-free during her time away. So we thought this would be a great opportunity to share some of her tips for travelling.
As you mature, you may become more prone to injury, so need to be aware of your body’s capacity. However, it’s important not to let a fear of injury be a barrier to participating in the activities you enjoy. There are a few important things you need to consider before tripping off on your holiday. Sitting in a confined space for a prolonged period of time may cause some unwelcome issues by the time you reach your destination. Whether you are travelling on an aeroplane or at the wheel of a car, if you expect you will be experiencing extended periods of sitting, you can take some precautions.
