Research shows that 50-year-olds can have the brains of 25-year-olds if they meditate for just 15 minutes a day Neuroscientist Sara Lazar found that people who meditated had more gray matter in the part of the brain linked to decision-making and working memory.

Darron discusses the poorly understood issue of tongue ties and how they can impact normal breathing and jaw function.

Sleep is so important
Sleep posture is often overlooked as a determinant of sleep quality. If the body is uncomfortable, you will move often. Negative sensory input from uncomfortable muscles or joints are processed in the brain and have a brain response.

A neutral well supported head / neck / spine position helps facilitate a more comfortable and more replenishing sleep

Call us today on 98248868 so we can check your sleep posture, your pillow and your general sleep hygiene.

“Sit tall, shoulders back and chin in”- An Insight To A Healthy Sitting Posture

Posture as we know is a term that refers to the position of a body when it’s either at rest or moving. We have different postures when we sit, stand, walk and even sleep.

However, these days most of us spend an extended amount of time sitting down which could be for sending emails at work, watching TV, on our phones or during the daily commute.

Too much sitting might be relaxing but it can leave the spine stiff, sore and painful. When this is done on a regular basis, it can become a unhealthy habit.

What Can Help?

Try maintaining a good sitting posture which can help by reducing strain on the body. Remember to sit tall, shoulders pulled back and chin tucked in.

Try To Avoid Bad Posture Habits Such As :

a) sitting leaned to one side with the spine bent or leaning on the chin;
b) keeping the legs or arms crossed;
c) dangling or not properly supporting the feet; d) sitting for a long time in one position;
e)straining the neck for long periods while looking at a monitor, telephone screen, or a document;
f) unsupported sitting position;
g) while working on 2 computer screens causing the head turning to the same side for prolonged duration;

Other Things You Can Do To Help Yourself:

Keeping active by exercising at least 30 min/day, 3 times/week
Using hands free device for long calls
Using a work station which is ergonomically set up according to your needs
Using posture clothing that improves muscle performance and function. This is a new trend. We stock a range of posture clothing to help re-enforce better posture. Ask us about this when you are next in.

Our experienced team at More Than Physio can help you with a comprehensive posture assessment and help make suggestions to assist you to make the necessary changes with ease. Of course if you are experiencing niggles or aches from your poor posture, have tech-neck, or suffer any kind of headache or pain, then we can help treat you as well.

Make sensible changes today. Call us on 9824-8868 or book online at

Welcome everone. Today Shan is talking about one of the commone symptoms of jaw realted issues - clicking! We all have a disc, like a baseaball cap, sitting on top of the jaw bone in your jaw joint, and it's suppose to move with your jaw as you open your mouth. Therefore, the optimal mechanics of the disc moving is important for your jaw function. Your disc can be displaced due to various reasons, it can result in severe jaw problem down the track. Contact us, we can help you identify the causes and stop it from progressing.

#headaches #neck #physio #dryneedling


Headaches are very common and we all have experienced them at some point of time in our lives. For some of us they can be temporary but for others they can largely impact the quality of life. Because headaches are so common, most of the times we rely on pain medication that doesn’t solve the problem but only causes temporary relief of symptoms.

There can be several causes of headaches but the ones that arise due to dysfunction in the joints, muscles, fascia and neural structures of the upper neck are known as cervicogenic headaches. This category of headaches can be effectively treated by physiotherapeutic measures.

1. One sided headache that may gradually affect the other side
2. Gradual onset
3. Affected by neck movements or sustained neck postures
4. Accompanied by neck stiffness and pain

1. Joint mobilisation: To allow freedom of movement in the spinal joints
2. Soft tissue release: To loosen up the tight muscles that contribute to pain
3. Dry needling: To reduce pain by releasing myofascial trigger points( painful knots in the muscles)
4. Postural awareness
5. Exercise prescription: We incorporate Get Back exercise program - a specialised exercise program that strengthens and improves muscle function
6. Lifestyle modification: To ensure a healthy spine position in daily activities such as sleeping and sitting

For those of you who can relate to this feel free to contact our team at More Than Physio on 9824-8868 or book Online

We look forward to hearing from you!

Makes so much sense
#lowerbackpain #hippain #backpain #effectsofsitting

Shan is here talking about how your upper back and your hip stiffness can be closely linked to your lower back pain! The body works as an alternating pattern of stable body parts connected by mobile joints. By understanding this, we may demystify your movement patterns and subsequently the pain you are experiencing.
