Fascia, what is it?

Fascia is a continuous 3D web of fibrous tissue from head to toe, made up of proteins that holds the tissue of the body in place and forming your soft tissue architecture. Your fascia interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, it binds different muscles together and is an integral part of the way your muscles work together to exert force and generate stability and movement of the skeleton. Your fascia also extends to the organs and viscera, wrapping around them and holding them in place within the body cavity. Imagine biting into a wedge of orange and looking at the individually wrapped pods of juice, we’re like that too! Follow the link to find out more:

Bike Set Up for Optimal Cycling Biomechanics
For every cyclist, correct bike set up is essential in enhancing performance, preventing injury, and ensuring comfort.
Cyclists are pre-disposed to overuse injuries due to the amount of time spent in the saddle. Knee pain is the most commonly reported overuse injury related to cycling, followed closely by back and neck complaints. Many of these injuries can be prevented or cured if the bike is correctly set-up for the individual athlete.

Management of hip and knee osteoarthritis

Sometimes called degenerative joint disease or degenerative arthritis osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints, causing large amounts of disability and pain in the Australian community. OA can affect any joint, but it occurs most often in the knees, hips and the small joints of the hands and the base of the big toe. In normal joints, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. Cartilage provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint motion and acts as a cushion between the bones. In OA, the cartilage gradually breaks down, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. In the final stages of OA, the cartilage wears away and bone rubs against bone leading to joint damage and more pain.

Acupuncture vs Dry Needling, What's the difference?
There would not be many of you out there who have not heard of acupuncture. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that has been around for over a thousand years. It involves insertion of fine needles into specific points in the body in order to elicit a number of possible positive health benefits. Over the past few years dry needling is a term and technique that has been increasingly used. Dry needling involves the insertion of fine acupuncture needles into distinct areas in muscles, known as trigger points, in order to provide pain relief and improved muscle function.

So what is the difference between acupuncture and dry needling? Basically this comes down to the philosophy behind the points which are used as well as the proposed dysfunctions which are able to be treated. Click on the link to find out more. http://ow.ly/RXUtI

‘Return to exercise after pregnancy’
‘After giving birth, most women are keen to lose weight and get their tummy back. Regaining your pelvic floor muscle strength prior to returning to exercise is essential to provide support to your low back and pelvic area, as well as supporting your pelvic organs.
Many women believe that returning to sport or high impact activity helps to strengthen their pelvic floor. Unfortunately, participating in exercise or sport too early can lead to further strain on your pelvic floor, and may result in pelvic organ prolapse or musculoskeletal injury.’ Follow the link to find out more.
