Aevum is one of the biggest NDIS service provider for Physio and Exercise Physiology in the Sutherland Shire. We have many participants under the NDIS come from Sutherland, Miranda, Caringbah, Menai, Engadine and Cronulla. Our team are highly experienced to help you establish and achieve your goals. We work closely with many participants with multiple sclerosis (MS) in the Sutherland Shire and for this reason we have invested in advanced technology to help better equip our clinicians to achieve our participants goals. In this article we will discuss some of these.
Hamstring injuries are common in field sports like soccer within the Sutherland Shire and Helensburgh regions, or more specifically over 35 F grade soccer. The hamstrings are an incredibly powerful muscle group however generally don’t get stronger without a specific and target strength and conditioning program. With our day to day lives we use our quadriceps a lot and they can maintain reasonable strength through normal activities of daily living.
The rotator cuff muscles and rotator cuff tendons are an integral part of a normally functioning shoulder. Therefore it is no surprise that rotator cuff injuries including rotator cuff tears, rotator cuff tendonitis and subacromial bursitis can cause significant shoulder pain and dysfunction. Fortunately, your team at Aevum Physio in the Sutherland Shire and Helensburgh know a thing or two about fixing a rotator cuff injury.
Plantar fasciitis (PF) is the bane of many runners and its one of the most common conditions we treat at Aevum Physio. Hundreds of runner’s from the Sutherland Shire and Illawarra region come into our clinic every year with this condition.
In this blog we wanted to cover ankle sprains in a little more detail as they are something very common in trail running and field sports in the Sutherland Shire. We see these injuries every week at Aevum and the rehabilitation process is a key factor in not only returning to running or sport but also in assisting to limit future injury. For any further information call Aevum Physiotherapy on 85443231.
Running has one of the largest participation rates. Statistics from the Australian Sports Commission’s 2006 survey showed an estimated 1,224,100 Australians aged 15 years and older participated in running in the 12 months prior to being surveyed. Running is a popular fitness activity because of its health benefits, affordability and convenience. However running can cause injuries, often due to overtraining – people doing too much, too soon.
Most of us who cycle for fun would have thought cycling is an easy sport – just get on the bicycle, make sure it feels comfortable to sit on, then ride away. But things aren’t as easy as they look, because spending prolonged periods of time in a non-ideal cycling posture can result in injuries without you realising it, so today I’ll give you a run-down of what your body position should look like when you get on the bicycle.
It’s about time. I think the myth can finally be dispelled. I may get chased down the road with pitchfork carrying pre-exercise pro-stretching advocates but here I go. Stretching before exercise is about as useless in preventing injury as one of Hue Heffner’s new girlfriends trying to convince you she has no interest in money.
Now that we are heading into winter the most common injury we will see in the clinic by far are muscle tears, the most common age group affected are over 35. Out of those, the most common presentation will be from soccer players and, out of them men who have a relatively sedentary job Monday to Friday are at the greatest risk.
This being that time of year when all parents sit around a table and someone say “Not long now”, everyone looks at each other with absolute exhaustion and yet sheer joy, acknowledging with the slightest facial expression what that comment is in reference too. That time being the kids that you love so much but really don’t like so much at the moment are heading back to the parent relief centre or school as it also known to those without kids.
