GET MOVING
The weather is warmer, the evenings are lighter and excuses for staying indoors are getting thinner. It must be spring.

Evidence shows just regular simple movements like standing up while at work can help reduce the risk of health issues like obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and even cancer.

Something physios see a lot of this time of year is people presenting with pain from a lack of movement in the winter months. Intensive exercises do not have to be the key to keeping your body healthy and active. This is what we hope to do this Move-ember (pun intended) by encouraging people to make little changes in their movement for a better life. Our physios can advise you about improving your level of activity and lifestyle. Unfortunately, many people these days spend their working lives at a desk sitting down, then get in their car to drive home where they sit in front of the television.

Don't be afraid to be active. Doing any physical activity is better than doing none. If you currently do no physical activity, start by doing some, and gradually build up to be active on most, preferably all, days every week.

Kids are naturally active, so stick with them! Playing with your children or grandchildren is a great way to not only build on your health but your relationship as well.

Have you met Stanley?

Your skeleton is necessary to provide the body with shape, structure and support.

He helps us show our patients how their skeleton moves, the positions they should avoid and the movement they should aim for. Stanley is also helpful for training and educative purposes for our staff.

Stanley is one of our longest serving employees who also happens to live at the clinic.

It also serves to protect the internal structures of the body.

Ask to meet Stanley at your next Physio visit.

Did you know that even if you do 1 hour of intensive exercise a day, it does not fully counteract the time you spend sitting at a desk all day? Active sitting and deskercises can significantly improve your health and your concentration.
