As specialists in the local community we are regularly involved in running education classes on Sports First Aid, management of injury and taping.
2019 is shaping up to be a big year with community courses and professional development for our physiotherapists. If you are interested in holding a course for your team or colleagues please contact us on 6492 0023.
We were all able to run at some part of our lives! Our ancestors ran to get food long ago as a part of survival. So if it’s in our genes, how come running can be so hard and painful?
As society has evolved, sitting times and habits have changed, leaving our bodies ill equipped to run. The once primal skill has become a task we now have to think about and practice in order to improve our performance and keep ourselves pain free.
Each time our foot strikes the ground when running; our body absorbs a force that is 3x our body weight! With the average runner striking the ground 600x/km, it’s no wonder that 55% of runners get injured.
Whether you’re a runner with your ‘L’ plates, a ‘shuffler’ or a regular on the track, come along to our seminar to learn how you can get the best out of your body.
Our experienced Physiotherapist’s (and keen runners) will present the latest research on biomechanics, footwear, barefoot running, breathing techniques, training programs and injury prevention to help you build the best runner you can be!
