HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Osteopath to a new you

The start of a new year brings the notion of a fresh start. People are excited by the sheer possibility of the next 365 days and the hope that the new year will be better than the last.  

Resolutions are made – lose weight, quit smoking, save money... You hit the gym every day, only to find yourself demotivated within a few weeks. Sound familiar?

It's because creating deep, lasting change is less about willpower and major transformation, and more about gradual adjustments and forming new habits.

What's your new day's resolution?

That’s why instead of a new year’s resolution, we say make a new day’s resolution. Wake up every morning with the resolve to do something for your wellbeing.

Osteopaths of Australia advise exercising and movement to everybody.  

Movement increases blood flow to and from muscles and joints, increasing oxygen and nutrient supply, which also leads to more healthy tissues. Movement strengthens our bodies and improves our mobility. It releases special enzymes in our brains that levels out our state of mind. It prevents dementia, cancer, heart disease, diabetes and countless other conditions.

Every day in January, we’ll be sharing a new health and wellbeing tip across our social media channels. The tips may help inspire you to do something a little different or move a little bit more.

Media Release: Lower back pain & Osteopathy

Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints seen by a GP or healthcare professional. It is estimated that over 80% of Australians will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. Lower back pain may be acute (new pain) or chronic (longstanding pain), and it can range from mild and annoying to severe and debilitating.

Osteopaths are health professionals who are highly trained to treat lower back pain. An osteopath will explain to you why your pain is present, assist to relieve it with manual therapy and identify any barriers to your recovery. During a consultation with an osteopath, your practitioner will first discuss your case and thoroughly assess your condition.
