Dear Body Moves Clients,
A new update on the measures we are taking at the clinic based on the words spoken by the Premier and Prime Minister as well as the following advice from the Australian Physiotherapy Association:
Monday 23 March 2020: Advice from the Federal Minister for Health, The Hon Greg Hunt
The APA has received the following advice from the Federal Minister for Health, The Hon Greg Hunt: The Australian Minister for Health has today confirmed that ALL allied health businesses can continue working and are encouraged to do so. In addition he has indicated that they are now developing full allied health telehealth options within the week for allied health along with all other health and medical services. This will be part of a staged plan. “Face to face services for many remain vital so where possible, we encourage you to continue. I thank you for your courage, dedication and care”, the Minister has said. The APA continues to monitor this changing situation closely and will provide you with advice and guidance as it becomes available.
Monday 23 March 2020: Prime Minister's Press Conference held on Sunday 22 March Following the Prime Minister's press conference held on Sunday 22 March, it appears that at this time, there is NO directive to close physiotherapy practices. We will watch this space actively and keep you up to date.
We agree that our Physiotherapy services are essential and can continue at the clinic as they may alleviate strain on the medical system. As we are all challenged and have differing thoughts, please call us and we can discuss and plan sessions on an as needs basis - our phone lines will of course remain open. As the situation changes daily we'll continue to remain fluid.
• Telehealth sessions are also a good option and may be conducted through a simple phone call, or through Facetime, Zoom and other remote platforms.
• Through Telehealth we'll be able to set up secure video calls, live-stream exercise videos and screen share other information.
• It is always our responsibility to look after ourselves, others and beyond, as best we can.
• We'll continue to implement new hygiene measures and have spaced out our equipment in accordance with social distancing.
• Keep taking good care of yourselves and others as best you can! (we will too)

At Body Moves, we like to work with our patients/clients in a conventional and scientific way and also in a more holistic way. If this resonates with you, check out our website (www.bodymoves.com.au) and come see us. We may have something special to offer you...
Posted @withrepost • @katya.macdonald 💥 Ankles! 💥
So easy to injure, and so easy to forget about when you are on the quest for a strong body💪🏻 Ankles are a hinge joint, meaning they only point and flex (or plantarflex and dorsiflex). They are a key piece in raising up onto your toes, running, jumping, basically any pushing off motion. 🏃🏼♀️ So this post is about the anatomy of the ankle, the more common injuries that occur, and what are the steps we can take to recovery. 👣
Come see us at Body Moves! Mention this post for 15% off your first physio appointment!
Posted @withrepost • @myfootfunction Position of the feet in walking 🚶♀️
Image A, normal position of foot in walking with toes pointing directly forward; B, position of foot in walking with toes pointed in; C, position of foot in walking with toes pointed out. 🦶
Misalignment of the bones of the foot effect walking mechanics, having implications higher up. Have you checked your walking-gait?
Visit us at Body Moves where we will be happy to assess your gait pattern! Also, mention this post for 15% off your next visit! -

☀️ Did you know... the human foot and ankle complex is made up of:
👣 28 bones
👣 33 joints
👣 112 ligaments
👣 13 extrinsic muscles
👣 21 intrinsic muscles
The foot requires sufficient mobility and stability for all of its functions. Mobility is necessary for absorbing the ground reaction force of the body. Stability is necessary to provide a stable base for the body.
☀️ Here’s an example of an exercise we as physios like to use here at Body Moves. Using a reformer and a jump board, we can work on stability and mobility in our feet.
Your feet are important! Come see us at Body Moves for an assessment and an individualized exercise program!

Posted @withrepost • @gaithappens When you google ‘heel pain’, plantar fasciitis is going to pop up and most likely you’ll end up rolling the bottoms of your feet and stretching your calves. But here’s the deal, this MAY help if it IS plantar fasciitis but....
What if it’s:
Baxter’s neuropathy, a calcaneal stress fracture, posterior tibial tendonitis 😍,heel spur syndrome, tissue changes from autoimmune disorders?
Can you see why assessment is warranted?
We loved this infogram by @gaithappens! For a physio assessment of your feet, come see us at Body Moves!
Do you ever feel tense in your upper back/ shoulders? The muscle there is the upper part of your trapezius muscle, and is a common place for tension and stress to land.
In this video, Adam, principal physiotherapist here at Body Moves, demonstrates a great way to release the stress and tension in the upper traps. Adam has a special interest in yoga, and here has applied the sirsasana (headstand) to create space and length in the cervical spine (neck) as well as applying trigger point pressure to the upper trapezius muscles. It is also wonderful for encouraging circulation in this area.
Visit our website http://www.bodymoves.com.au to make an appointment to see us! We can teach you this technique and many others to help ease pain and encourage your body to move more freely!

A really interesting one from Physio Network about hip flexors we thought to share.
Are we really ‘releasing’ the psoas? 🤨
What do you think?
With manual therapy you can’t change tissues DIRECTLY. But how does manual therapy work then?
Here is a great blog on clinical reasoning in manual therapy - https://www.physio-network.com/clinical-reasoning-in-manual-therapy/

We thought to share this interesting article about exercise and how it can help with cancer rehabilitation. Debbie Summers has a special interest in this area and is qualified in providing Pinc and Steel programs. http://www.bodymoves.com.au/mod_pilates_pinc.asp

Shadow Yoga/ Nrtta Sadhana
The shadow has its own wisdom. Let's read Shadow Yoga's founder Shandor Remete's quote:
The shadow of joy, the shadow of the intellect, the shadow of the mundane mind, the power principle, the gross structure, the lustre of the skin and the shadow on the ground are a blockage of light. By considering the list of shadows, one can see how different people are stuck on different planes. Some are joy hunters, some are power mongers, while others are intellectuals and so on. There is nothing wrong with any of these kinds of behaviour, but by themselves they lead nowhere. However, if these shadows are correctly investigated with an open mind, they can fuel the journey to enlightenment. #shadowyoga

💥Low Back Pain Beliefs💥
Love this post from team member Dr. Caleb Burgess DPT, OCS, CSCS!
📌 In 2014, a study by Darlow et al was published in BMJ Open. The study looked at beliefs of back pain in New-Zealand citizens above 18 years of age
📊 602 valid responses were received. Although not all of them had back pain at the moment (27%, which is still a substantial amount), 87% had experienced it at least once in their lives
⁉️ 34 questions were asked. A few of the most shocking results can be seen in the picture
📊 Negative views about the back and back pain were prevalent, in particular the need to protect the back to prevent injury
😩 People with current back pain had more negative overall scores, particularly related to back pain prognosis (outcome)
📈 Participants also showed uncertainty about links between pain and injury and appropriate physical activity levels during an episode of back pain
💯 However, respondents had more POSITIVE views about activity if they had consulted a HEALTH PROFESSIONAL about back pain, which illustrates the power of EDUCATION in back pain recovery👍🏼
📣 TAKE HOME MESSAGE: Your BELIEFS can strongly influence your back PAIN and your RECOVERY, both positively and negatively
💯 That's why it's important to remember that MOST people experience back pain at least once in their lives, and MOST people recover just fine
💪🏼 Your back is STRONG and RESILIENT. Treat it that way!
