Hi there everyone,
Thank you for all your support in this difficult year. The team at Summer Hill Physio would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope that you are able to enjoy a very deserved break over this period.
We are open over the Christmas New Year period for anybody who needs treatment (hours listed below) and we will resume normal trading hours from 2nd January 2021.
Take care and stay healthy!
On behalf of my team, I would like to express our gratitude in trusting us with treating your physical injuries over the last 7 years.
I would like to inform you that we will be offering a telehealth service/ video consultation for anyone requiring Physio who are unable to make it into our clinic. This service will run like a normal consultation in which we will be able to assess you, give you a diagnosis , advice and guidance on exercises and rehab progression. Although telehealth services will mean that you won’t be able to get hands on treatment from us we are still able to instruct you on which muscles to foam roll, trigger point or massage and how to do it.
For anyone who is able to attend the clinic or would like to attend the clinic, I assure you that we are committed to providing care in the safest possible environment. We are sanitising our hands and washing our hands between each patient as we always do. All surfaces are have been thoroughly cleaned and are sanitised several times a day. Towels are single use and washed. We are also currently rescheduling patients who are unwell.
For anyone who would like to use our telehealth service please call the clinic on (02) 8068 8832 for further information. Our clinic hours are 7:30am to 7:00pm Monday to Friday, 7:30am to 1:00pm on Saturdays.

If there are any physios keen on learning to bike fit look out for Trish's courses run by the APA

She will be back in the clinic, ready to treat from Monday!

Recurrent ankle sprains? Check this out...
Have you or do you know someone that suffers from recurrent/previous ankle sprains?
McHugh et al. (2007) conducted a study whereby high school football players balanced on a balance board for 5 minutes on each leg, 5 days per week, for 4 weeks in preseason and twice per week during the season - the results? McHugh et al. (2007) found a 77% reduction in injury incidence with a balance board training program post testing.
According to McKay et al. (2001), Braun, (1999) & Gerber et al. (1998) UP TO 70% of people have persisting symptoms of pain and instability after a simple ankle sprain - rehabilitation is important once an ankle sprain has occured and should not be overlooked as insignificant!
