Physiotherapy & Exercise

If you are suffering from an injury, your Physiotherapist can create a fitness program that is suits your injury and exercise levels.

Your Physiotherapist’s training included the treatment of injuries in addition to exercise physiology, that’s the science of exercise. This means your Physiotherapist can evaluate and diagnose your injury in addition to develop a fitness program to fit your age, injury and exercise levels.

If you are recovering from an injury it is important your exercises are not painful. Placing extra pressure on your body will not enable you to recover quickly from the injury, studies have proven that pain prevents your muscles from performing to their maximum capacity and can become counter productive.

Your Physiotherapist will evaluate your injury and give you exercises that are tailored to your condition which are acceptable for you. We advise that you consult a fitness expert when you are planning your rehabilitation.

The simplest of exercises may prevent your muscles from getting feeble, when your muscles become weak, they won’t have the ability to support the areas of your body that are injured.

Your Physiotherapist will evaluate your injury and provide you with an exercise program that can enable you to recover. Typically the exercises your Physio urges can be performed at home with no equipment.

When your Physiotherapist provides you exercises to the rehabilitation of an accident, they are using their expertise and expert opinion to do so. To get the best results from your exercise program it is imperative that you do the exercises your Physio provides you. You would not stop taking medication your doctor prescribes you, so be certain you do your ‘daily dose’ of exercise! If you are recovering from an injury and would like to learn more, you can make a booking with one of our Physios in a practice across metropolitan Melbourne.

Don’t wait for tomorrow to call a dietitian Melbourne

Sticking to a diet can be really tough. We have all been in both of these scenarios. The first is the ‘tomorrow never comes’. I’ll start tomorrow, I’ll binge tonight and eat all of my favourite foods, get it out of my system and then tomorrow I’ll be ready to start. Only you don’t …and get in to a cycle of binging and putting on even more weight. Continue reading

Bad posture needs a recumbent exercise bike

One of the biggest training tips that my personal trainer gives me is having the correct posture when going through our workout regime. If you have incorrect posture not only are you not doing your exercises properly but you are putting unnecessary strain on your neck shoulders and back. A recumbent exercise bike will alleviate the stress from poor posture.

A Recumbent exercise bike differs from the average gym bike in that it has extra back support attached to the bike seat. You are able to relax back in to the seat whilst you pedal which can aid in correcting bad posture or relieving tension from those with chronic neck and back pain.

For a great selection of recumbent exercise bikes check out Lifespanfitness recumbent exercise bikes for the best prices around.

Need Help Sleeping?

I’m a notoriously bad sleeper and have been ever since I was a kid. When things got really bad I used to take all sorts of nasty stuff to help get a good nights rest but I know I wasn’t doing myself any favours. The right approach can help correct your body’s natural tendencies and create a better condition for sleeping.
