Are you 1 of the 2.1 million Australians who suffer from osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease which causes structural changes in joints. It often presents with pain, with or without stiffness and swelling around the joint, and can result in a significant loss of function.
As our population continues to age, so does the incidence of people diagnosed with osteoarthritis. 30% of people aged 65 or older report joint symptoms and there is approximately $1.6 billion spent on treating osteoarthritis every year.
Do you have Back Pain? Want to get stronger, improve your posture or core strength? Never tried Pilates but keen to start? Done the big group, all-do-the-same floor classes?

It’s that time of year again (and the best time in my opinion). Cricket season is here which means kids with plastic bats and your weekend warrior veterans are dusting off the pads and taking over local ovals everywhere.
If I told you there was a magic pill that
- cut your risk of dying,
- decreased heart disease,

- reduced back pain
- boosted bone density,
- improved your sleep and
- slowed mental decline and memory loss, you would walk into the Doctor’s surgery and demand a prescription.Read More
don’t waste your hard training by neglecting recovery!
A lot of us are hitting a transformation program at this time of year to get in shape for summer. There are a number of recovery strategies you can use to stay healthy, uninjured and training consistently. The harder you train, the harder you need to work at recovering (if that makes sense). Check out my 15 minute webinar for details of how you can use science to your advantage and stay healthy while increasing your training.
Please don’t suffer in silence!
Ladies, do you pee when you run? Yeah, that’s not normal and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Unfortunately up to one in three mothers suffer in silence from incontinence.
It’s an awkward and embarrassing topic that no one wants to talk about. Except your PHYSIO! Read on to learn more and check out the video showing how we assess pelvic floor function using Real-Time Ultrasound
Over 2 decades of working as a Sports Physio, I am always asked to try and identify exactly why my patients develop overuse injuries. This is often a difficult task due to the number of factors that can combine to cause an injury. What I have noticed is five mistakes that endurance athletes seem to make, whether they be professional cyclists or triathletes, or new exercisers training for a fun run. I can assure you, I have personally made all 5 of these mistakes. They are not exclusive to males or females and avoiding these mistakes will help keep you fit and well.
