St George Aged Care Expo

St George Aged Care Expo

The St George Aged Care Expo gave Hurstville Physio Plus a great opportunity to showcase how we can support our ageing community. Helping those who are ageing to maintain their independence and confidence to remain in their own home. We believe that early intervention is essential to reduce the effects of ageing and is key to better outcomes for our clients.

Our dedicated team of physiotherapists provide professional physiotherapy, exercise therapy and rehabilitation in the comfort and safety of the client’s home or aged care facility, or in our clinic. They complete a comprehensive initial assessment and develop a rehabilitation plan to help each client achieve their goals.

Changing approach to back pain

There is new research on back pain that encourages exercise and reinforces that pain is a protective mechanism, not a measure of tissue damage.

Too many people are having back surgery needlessly when the evidence of benefit is weak. The experts say that scans, x-rays, cortisone injections and long-term opioid use are often unhelpful and moving rather than focusing on the pain is best.  Once you have the all clear from a doctor or physiotherapist, you are safe to move. So, get moving, even if it hurts.

With chronic pain, the brain is being overly cautious and the pain system gets more sensitive. Pain is increased by fear of re-injury and a whole host of other factors. And so, over time, our body creates a bigger than necessary pain buffer zone.

If there is no improvement after an episode of acute back pain then consider seeking advice from a physiotherapist, if you haven’t already seen one. A physiotherapist will help find the most appropriate exercises for the individual person taking account of their preferences and abilities. For example, if muscles are weak around the spine then it’s strength exercise,  if there are coordination or movement problems, it could be a different exercise. Movement and exercise have an important role in preventing the recurrence of back pain. Read more…

Researchers now say that running does not lead to osteoarthritis and may actually protect people from developing the disease

It was “reported that runners, regardless of the age when they ran, had a lower prevalence of knee pain and osteoarthritis … Regular running, even at a non-elite level, not only does not increase the risk of developing knee OA but may protect against it, the researchers concluded.

“This does not address the question of whether or not running is harmful to people who have pre-existing knee OA,” said Dr. Lo. “However, in people who do not have knee OA, there is no reason to restrict participation in habitual running at any time in life from the perspective that it does not appear to be harmful to the knee joint.”
