Logically, you should be looking into getting physio for your leg, neck, or back, right? Unfortunately, when it comes to musculoskeletal pain, it isn’t always that straightforward!

Read this before you hit the pool! A physio in Elwood explains swimmer’s shoulder

Australia has a bit of a love affair with the water - we suppose it’s just a side-effect of being surrounded by the stuff! You don’t even have to look at how our competitive swimmers are treated for proof - only 5% of Aussie adults can’t swim, compared to 20% in the UK, or the shocking 4 billion people globally who can’t swim. Whether you swim in the fast lane, [...]

An Elwood physio explains frozen shoulder (and what you can do about it!)

Let’s get one thing out of the way: frozen shoulder has nothing to do with the cold! Also known by its proper name, adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder describes situations where your shoulder becomes stiff and immobile. In this case, “frozen” refers to how you’ll have trouble moving and rotating your arm. In most cases, frozen shoulder also comes with a healthy dose of shoulder pain too. Symptoms of frozen shoulder [...]

A physiotherapist in Caulfield explains how poor ergonomics can cause pain

Do you experience dull throbbing? Sharp pains? Or recurring aches? For many, the first thought is “how did I get that?” You think back to the evening jog, or the last time you went to the gym.

A physio in Elwood explains the dangers of sitting too much

According to the Heart Foundation, around 65.3% of Aussies over 15 either were sedentary or had low levels of exercise. That’s close to 12 million people - a little under half the entire population. And with less active living comes a whole host of potential health problems. While inactivity isn’t great for the body in general, much of this idle time is spent sitting down. In our experience, this is [...]

A Caulfield physio explains the causes & treatment of rotator cuff injury

While most people treat the shoulder as a single entity, your Caulfield physio knows that it’s actually a complicated network of bones, tendons and muscles that work together to give you a full range of motion. There’s a lot of stuff going on in your shoulder. That also means there are many points of failure where things can go wrong. Shoulder pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal issues [...]

What is shoulder bursitis? A Physio in Caulfield explains all

Your shoulders are a miracle of engineering. They’re one of the most complex joints in your body, containing four entirely separate joints, each with their own muscle groups and bones. Together, these bones form the only joint in your body that’s designed to rotate a full 360 degrees. When most clients come to our Caulfield physio with shoulder pain, it’s usually due to a lack of understanding as to how [...]
