We all know that the way to improve a skill, movement or task is through practice. If you practice something often enough you will improve. A lot of our musculoskeletal problems are caused by the way we are able to cope with load. If the load is to large, or occurs too often tissue can become damaged. If you experience pain or discomfort whilst moving, or just by staying in a particular position, it's possible that the way you are moving, or coping with the load of the activity, could be a contributing factor in your particular problem. If you can change the way you move, or the way you hold yourself, you can start to take control of the way you handle load and reduce the pain and discomfort. And with practice maybe stop them from occurring at all. Our Physiotherapists are expert at assessing movement, patterns of movement, and posture. We can identify and help you correct any flaws that present themselves, enabling a quick and safe return to work, sport and life! We treat all ages, all shapes and sizes, from the very fit to those who maybe less active, or unable to be active for whatever reason.

Run Smart (running made easy)

Running is hard enough without getting aches, pains and injuries. Research tells us that up to a third of all running related injuries are caused by 'overload', usually too much, too far, too soon! The majority of these concern the leg or foot, with the knee, followed by the shin and Achilles tendon being the most common sites of pain.

It is rare that anybody gets taught how to run, even the most elite and talented runners may have never been taught the basics of good, efficient technique. If you couple poor technique with 'overload' you may be susceptible to developing an injury.
