May Edition : Phyx. Newsletter

Welcome to the May 2022 Edition of our newsletter where we will share updates, tips and Phyx. stories.

Testing Phase For Our Booking System

We have been testing a new and updated booking system for Pilates to make things easier for you and give you more control over your schedule. We are currently in our final testing phase which now means we are testing with some clients at random. We have started this Saturday May 21st 2022.

If you have been prompted to make an account with us online recently for your Pilates classes, we are aware that some accounts are working perfectly, while there some glitches for others.

Just wanted to let you know that we are aware and working through them. If you would like to send through any issues, screenshots etc, to help us that would be fab

We will send out thorough communication Monday May 30th 2022 – fingers crossed all ready to go online 100% by then.

Thank you again for your patience if you are one of our lucky (unlucky 😅) tests, we are looking forward to implementing some fantastic updates, as we move through this final testing phase.

Cancer Rehab

Our physio Zee has recently completed extra study in the oncology field with PINC cancer rehabilitation. She is now helping people with many different conditions related specifically to cancer and treatment side effects.
Typically cancer treatment involves surgery, chemo, radiation and or hormone therapy which have their own side effects, some including:
  • Fatigue and tiredness
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Muscle pains and aches
  • Mouth, gum, and throat sores
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Skin Changes
  • Weight Changes
  • Hair Loss
  • Deconditioning from surgery
  • Loss on movement and pain around surgical site
With this, it’s important that you get the support that you deserve from close friends and family and your medical and wellbeing team. There are also other specific conditions that may arise that your cancer physio can help with.
These include:
  • AWS (cording)
  • Post op issues such as joint and muscles inflammation, range of motion limitations and pain
  • Scar thickening
  • CIPN (chemo induced peripheral neuropathy)
  • Muscle deconditioning
  • Shoulder bursitis
  • Compensatory injuries and postural pain
  • Rotator cuff dysfunction
  • Shoulder girdle pain
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction and weakness
  • Abdominal wall weakness
  • Fatigue conditions
  • Low back pain
  • Thoracic joint stiffness (postural related pain)

If you, or a loved one might benefit from Cancer rehab, please ring the practice or you can make an appointment with Zeenia here.

Phyx. Wellness Program : Yoga With Lee

A big thank you to Lee from PhysioPhysique for kicking off our Phyx. Wellness Program with a very zen yoga class last Thursday.

It was great to take the time to pause and do something totally different as a team.

Shoulder Pain : Rotator Cuff Impingement

Impingement of the rotator cuff feels like a short, sharp(ish) pain in the shoulder, in what we call as physios, a ‘painful arc’.

This means that your shoulder pain will catch at a certain point in shoulder movement and is usually pain-free the rest of the time.

Your Temporomandibular Joint : a.k.a. The Jaw

Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is probably one of the most used joints in the body and without them we would be unable to talk, eat, yawn, kiss or express ourselves as we know it.

The TMJ is a hinged joint, formed between the jaw bone (mandible) and the skull (temporal bone) on either side of the face.

The joint has a small cartilaginous disc that sits in between the two bones to help with stability, movement, and shock absorption in the jaw.
