Age and Exercise

Is exercise limited by your age?
All the evidence suggests that exercise is overwhelmingly beneficial at any age. However we still don’t move enough and the elderly are the most vulnerable. We need to bring healthy physical activity to older people wether they are fit or frail. Let’s go walking! Once again ‘move it or loose it!’

Osteoarthritis

Did you know that 1 in 6 Australians suffer from osteoarthritis and research says that this will increase to 1 in 4 by the year 2050. The research also suggest that over half of those people will also suffer other associated problems, like hypertension, diabetes, or even depression. This all suggest that we must focus on increasing activity levels by reducing pain. Improving function and improving the quality of life. The magic word of course is EXERCISE. So get moving now.

Strapping

So why strap? Sometimes because it just feels good. The psychological advantage sometimes cannot be measured. In football for instance some players feel they play better with certain strapping in place…..so they get strapped! And play well!
Another advantage is of course prevention of a new injury or preventing a re injury. Certainly returning to sport after an injury like an ankle sprain requires suitable strapping to maintain stability. In some sports you are more prone to various sports injuries. Netballers and footballers routinely strap their ankles and so they should to protect and prevent.
Ask your physiotherapist for advice and lessons on the correct taping technique for your needs.

High Heels! Oh Please

Do they really cause low back pain? Of course not! Well not always.
If you have low back pain and wearing high heels aggravates your pain then best advice is to simply don’t wear heels until you pain has gone.
If wearing high heels gives you back pain and this may happen to some ladies where the height of the heels puts your low back in a challenging position then sorry you need to abandon the heels. ( Other than for serious social situations)
If wearing high heels does nothing to your back the ladies enjoy!
