Strengthening your Hamstrings

As we move into March, summer sports are winding up and the focus has moved to winter sports.

The activities people do in summer often vary to the football / netball / hockey they may play through winter (or the other alternative of not doing anything over summer). This means that hamstrings can be less conditioned than they were at the end of last season.

Beechboro Physio response to COVID-19

With growing uncertainty and concern regarding COVID-19 it has been a difficult time for many in our community. We at Beechboro Physio are monitoring the situation daily so we have the most current and accurate advice available to enact plans for our staff and patients.

The health and safety of all who attend our clinic is paramount.

Lower Limb Pain with Running

The vast majority of people we see in the clinic with hip, knee, shin and ankle pain while running, have poor rotational control when standing on one leg or running.

Without the control from the glutes, the leg will naturally rotate inwards which generates a huge amount of force through the leg. This can lead to many different overload injuries.

Choose Physio for Tradies Health

A tradies’ health is their most important tool, yet Australian tradies experience some of the highest rates of injury and time off work compared to other workers. In fact, 3 in 5 serious workplace injuries involve a tradie, despite tradies making up only 30 per cent of the Australian workforce.

It’s not just about your Physio session…

We are very proud of the service and care we provide to our clients at Beechboro Physiotherapy. But the work we do with you in the clinic isn’t the only way we help you achieve your outcomes. The period between Physiotherapy sessions is crucial in maintaining the benefits you’ve achieved and progressing even further. 

Providing a home exercise program (HEP) to patients is one of the most fundamental and important aspects of physiotherapy. Research has shown that patients who adhere to their prescribed exercises are significantly better at achieving their goals and demonstrate a greater increase in physical function.

Recovery Following Sports

Hydration

Hydration following sport is vital to the recovery process.  The body can lose significant amounts of fluid through sweating during physical exertion, even in cooler weather.  It is important that these fluids are replenished to avoid dehydration.  For 4-6 hours following sport you should gradually restore the bodies lost fluid. 

How will the new Private Health Reforms affect my Pilates classes?

As you are probably now all aware, the Federal Government has released private health reforms which target alternative therapies. Unfortunately, ‘Pilates’ has fallen into this category of ‘alternative’ therapy. As a result of the reforms, Private Health Insurers are no longer paying rebates on such therapies, including Pilates.

There was an important exception to this rule… Physiotherapy!
