from Anne Power
As you spring into action be sure to phase your return gradually if your body has not been doing regular exercise. Prevention is better than cure and many soft tissue injuries can be avoided with a gentle warm up and warm down; stretching of muscles; cross training with Pilates or Yoga to work on flexibility and strength. Our friendly team of physiotherapists are able to guide you, no matter what your age or your medical profile. There is always something you can do to help your everyday function even if you have had chronic pain.
Pilates requires breathing, concentration, co-ordination and repetition of low resisted exercise. Benefits include improved strength, flexibility, postural control, stamina, balance, and sense of well being. It is safe to use in cases of arthritis, osteoporosis and conditioning after injury or surgery. Our physiotherapists Julian and Anne can talk to you about concerns – you can even come and watch a class in progress.
Why suffer in pain during exercise? Remedial hydrotherapy is aquatic physiotherapy – specific exercises for your condition in warm water (34 degrees). Joints are unloaded and exercise not possible on dry land can commence early in water. It is ideal for arthritic conditions, post orthopaedic surgery, post trauma and back pain rehabilitation. Our programs are individual or group with “Aquabones” for general conditioning. Take advantage of our Spring Special.

Are you in a spin? One of the most common causes of vertigo is BPPV, Benign Paroxymal Positional Vertigo. BPPV is caused by crystals in the semicircular canals of the ear. Many conditions causes dizziness such as vestibular neuronitis/labyrinthitis, Menieres disease, acoustic neuroma, ototoxicity, vestibular migraine, vascular conditions.
