Child Biomechanics Checks

School holidays are an excellent time to bring your kids in for a biomechanics assessment with one of our osteopaths.

Biomechanics is the science of movement of a living body.  

This includes how muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments work together to produce movement.

 Biomechanical analysis is the determination of how forces are generated within the body.  

In other words how forces applied to the body can influence the way that we move.

Checking that everything is moving well as they grow and develop is so important!

Catching any issues early allows time for intervention and correction.

Call us now to make a time with one of our team.

You can claim your appointment on your private health extras cover.

Take Care Of Your Immunity This Winter


 

Your best defence against bugs this winter is a healthy immune system.  We all have the potential for a strong defence against invading pathogens however we don’t all care for our immune systems as we should.  

It is important to eat healthy food (primarily veggies), drink lots of water, and reduce stress and emotional turmoil.  Reduce processed food and sugar intake, and get plenty of sleep.  Acupuncture is also a valuable tool in boosting our immunity.

Research has shown that acupuncture can enhance the level of immune cytokines and splenic CD4+ T cells, which are of vital importance in human immune systems. These cells are referred to as ‘helper T cells‘ and are active in the immune system’s defence against microbes, including viruses.

This interesting article by a Harvard Medical School educator discusses the value in caring for your immunity and the ways in which we can all do this for ourselves.

Acupuncture for Lower Back Pain

Medicare in the U.S. has announced this week that it will now cover acupuncture for patients with chronic low back pain.  In fact Medicare will now cover up to 12 sessions in 90 days. This is in part because of the widespread abuse of opioids in America. Research continues to support the benefits of acupuncture for pain relief and it is reducing the dependency of patients on addictive pain medications. Restore acupuncturists are experienced at managing patients with chronic and acute pain.
