Autumn pains

There's been an influx of cold weather problems here at Port Adelaide Physiotherapy Paincare Pilates as Summer has long gone, and Autumn has set in.  Joints such as the knee, hip, back,  fingers and toes have had to adapt to barometric pressure changes. Nerves are increasingly feeling pain as they adapt from warm conditions to colder conditions.
Our strategy at Port Adelaide Physiotherapy is to help our clients suffering from joint pain syndromes eg knee pain, hip pain, back pain, hand and foot pain and more seriously - arthritis; is to help our clients find pain relief via increasing joint health with various special techniques involving hands on adjustments, some warm and gentle electrotherapy and we also devise a home management plan suited to each client to help minimise the pains from returning as the days become increasingly colder.  

We welcome new customers who require  help with their pain management to book in with one of our physiotherapists by phoning 0434 708 488, or booking online at www.boostphysiotherapy.com.au

Our Preseason Tip for Calf Pain

  • Hi Everyone, 
  • It is definitely season for pre season injuries here at Port Adelaide Physiotherapy.  Today its been calf pain, and more calf pain, and well..lots of people with variations of CALF pain.  So here's a bit of information about preseason leg injuries.  
  •  Muscle cramps are caused by fatigue or muscle tightness, or an imbalance of fluid, salt or potassium from heavy sweating. To prevent muscle cramps, make sure to stretch before and after training.
  • Muscle Strain
    A muscle strain causes tenderness of the muscle and possibly swelling. Muscle strains are caused by sudden contraction of a muscle and poor flexibility. Dancers, runners, jumpers are particularly prone to muscle strains in the lower back.
  • Shin Splints
    Shin splints cause pain on the front portions of the lower legs. Shin splints are caused by jumping on hard surfaces, improper landing, and poor flexibility. Be especially cautious to land properly after attempting a jump to avoid shin splints.
  • Plantar Fasciitis
    This condition causes chronic pain and inflammation to the foot, especially to the heel. Pain may also be felt in the arch. Plantar faciitis is particularly common in ballet dancers who wear pointe shoes.
  • Stress Fracture
    Stress fractures cause pain and swelling, and usually occur in the shins or balls of the feet. They are usually caused by repeated jumping and landing. Female athletes and dancers seem to be at high risk for developing stress fractures in the lower legs and feet.
    For ongoing calf or leg pain, call us for individual advice and treatment.  We are open 6 days a week. Happiness in health!

Preseason Training

After the indulgence over Christmas, New Year, Australia Day, Chinese New Year and lack of training, its been a busy week here at Port Adelaide Physiotherapy Paincare Pilates in terms of calf, quadricep, hamstring and foot pain syndromes.

To get back to sport and reduce your injury recurrence, a simple drill to limber up the body can include fast sprints.

Step 1: Set up two cones (or any two objects eg shoes, bags etc which won't fly with the wind)
Step 2: Sprint between these cones.  Run around them, or stop and start between each.

The Aim:  To get the body loose and agile by varying directions and speed.  This will recondition fitness and agility fast.

If you need any further advice, we are always available on 0434 708 488 or 8447 8408.

Happiness in health!

Whats New in 2014

Last year was a year of hard work.  We worked hard to offer the best and most effective physiotherapy and massage sessions.  It was a year of replanning and restructuring; and last year  found us buying new furniture and equipment and updating our computer systems.  Each month we contributed to various charities and community events eg the MS mud run, the Blind Welfare of SA, Medecins Sans Frontieres, the Haiyan Phillipine Appeal, the Redcross, the Salvation Army Winter appeal and many others.

This year, in 2014, we are looking to include new services to our repetoire.

Pilates Classes:
On Jan 2, we found space to add a new Pilates machine to our gym area; allowing Pilates classes to be conducted every Tuesday at 6pm and Saturday at 11am.

Executive Sessions:
Last years most popular feedback was on our Executive Sessions.  We started including longer one hourly sessions for those who needed extra time an attention to relieve pain and after a team meeting, we decided that this service should continue.  Our Executive Session allows a full one hour session with a physiotherapist to enable a higher level of recovery.

So, for committed therapists, and a professional approach to pain relief and wellbeing, make an appointment with us.  We can be contacted on 8447 8408.

We open 6 days and evenings.

Nawww...a very humbled girl indeed

I just received this feedback letter from my client Matt in my in tray; and I'm feeling a bit spesh!

"I was treated by Ann Fong.  Ann’s approach to my condition was very professional and effective.  I have seen a number of physiotherapists over many years and Ann Fong is in my view the most effective treatment I have had.  Thank you so much."

This totally made my day after 15+ appointments today! And yes, its clients like Matt who make the commitment to be a physio worthwhile.  Early mornings, late evenings. no lunch breaks...and now its home time! 

In good health!
