The bank of research literature keeps building - to move and to exercise is cornerstone to better health, both physical and mental. But for most people it is not that simple - there is one, or many barriers. Be it life (time, work, kids) or be it motivation, fear, pain.....there are so many reasons people struggle to move and keep moving.
At Physiologix, getting people moving is core to our treatment protocols. Our job is to find a way that works for you, to start as small or as big as we can, to progress and move forward with care, to establish a routine that works for you. This may be at home, floor based, bed based, gym based, park based. It may be using no equipment or it may be with all the equipment in the gym. We will make the exercise fit in to work for you.
Our small supervised classes help motivate you to get in. You are closely supervised to help your technique throughout and to progress the program as able. They are fun, social but still get you working. You can read more in our article below.
In other staff news, Kirsty has increased her hours as she returns after being on maternity leave. Gena and Maria (physios) continue to be heavily involved with Tennis comps around Queensland. Jemma has come on board as a new Pilates instructor. She has a wealth of experience, and is excited to now also be opening up classes on a Friday.
Please give us a call any time, with any queries you may have. We are looking forward to helping you spring forwards towards summer.
Reviewing the research coming out from many different journals, there is often agreeing and disagreeing. However there is one consistent thing – move to feel better! It almost doesn’t matter what is wrong with you; back pain, injury, poor health, health prevention, mental health……you name it…..movement is what you need. However that is often easier said than done.
At Physiologix getting people moving is core to what we believe. Your Physiologix physio will always incorporate exercises specific to your injury, but we will also look at what we have to do to maintain your current level of fitness while you cant do your normal activity. And if you don’t have a normal activity we will be there to help support you in finding something you would like to do.
Physiologix runs small classes (4 people max) – these form an essential part of our exercise approach. The biggest key to success with these are that they are totally individualised to you. You have your own program, you do things at the speed and pace you require, you have either a physio (if you do the physio classes) or an accredited pilates instructor (that is someone who has done a years Pilates study, at least 100 hours of practical, and then gained their accreditation – not someone who has done a short course) looking over you, helping you get the exercises right, progressing them as and when you need.
