An update from Natasha

At the clinic: As someone who particularly enjoys treating shoulders, I took over the job of organising and hosting our shoulder workshop as a webinar over the past few months. These have been valuable, but I’m definitely glad to go back to our face-to-dace workshops at Felltimber Community Centre as soon as we can. Workshops are a great opportunity to teach people with shoulder or arm pain how to work out what might be going on for them. We also bust a lot [...]

An update from Rob

At the clinic: As part of our Personal Best Physiotherapy VIP page I’ve been creating a video each week for our “Ask a physio” segment. This is a great opportunity for our past and present patients to ask a question about anything related to exercise, movement or activity. We’ve already answered some great questions about how best to sleep with a sore hip, how to improve your sitting posture and why 10k steps might not be the best goal for exercise. This is [...]

Rob’s Next Steps

When I returned from Tajikistan last August my body was a bit of a wreck and motivation was lacking. I was looking forward to a relaxing summer at home to recover some energy but instead we got hit with the bushfires. At times we had fires right up to our backyard in Porepunkah and had to evacuate three times. We were lucky not to lose any property like some but having a bushfire bear down on you really makes you think what’s important to [...]
