We hope Christmas is going to be a wonderful time for you and your family, that the effects of Covid have had minimal impact on your life this year, and that family and friends have stayed healthy and well. None of us will be forgetting 2020 in a hurry.
Our opening hours to help you through the silly season are as follows:
OPEN UNTIL 12PM THURSDAY 24TH DECEMBER
CLOSED 25TH DECEMBER UNTIL 3RD JAN
REOPEN 4TH JAN
Pilates classes will run up to 24th December, keeping you moving and well. They restart 11th January.
As the end of the year steam rollers closer, we have included a couple of articles here to help you survive. The first is for anyone who has had a baby or will be helping care for one this Christmas. The toll holding young kids can have on the body is something we see daily in the clinic. Our first article looks at ways and positions to hold a baby/infant to help reduce neck and shoulder, back and hand, and wrist pain
The second article gives some simple ideas for managing back pain. There is nothing worse than knowing you have a house full of guests coming in and your back is giving you grief.
Lastly, we sadly say goodbye this year to 2 of our staff Emma, remedial massage therapist, and Miriam, musculoskeletal physiotherapist.
Em has been with us for 5 amazing years. Her skills as a remedial massage therapist are incredible - I know all her clients will miss her hugely! But it's Em's smiles, laughter, and massive personality that we will all miss at Physiologix. Em moves interstate in December. Em - we will miss you massively and with you and your family all the very best in your next move in life.
Miriam, one of our awesome physios is off to do her PhD. She will be looking at physio responses to patients under distress. As physios working with clients often in considerable long term pain, with huge impacts on their life, this is extremely relevant and exciting clinical research. Miriam, good luck with the tough journey ahead. We cant wait to hear more about your findings as you go.
As I deal with breastfeeding my now six-week-old baby whilst juggling my toddler I am reminded of the many aches and pains that the body can feel at this time post-pregnancy.
Shoulder tension/ Neck pain/ Headaches
Gena Wallis (Sports and Exercise Physiotherapist) here discusses some simple ideas to deal with back pain.
