Long hours spent sitting in front of a computer combined with the escalating use of small mobile devices has seen a rapid degradation of ‘good posture’ in today’s world. Our own Dr Shane Buntman was featured on Channel 9 news last year talking about the rise of these sorts of complaints. And it appears that even the fashion world is taking notice, with this article also appearing on the Vogue website late last year.
Have you counted your running cadence lately?
In recent times, many popular types of diets have focused on low-carbohydrate intake. These types of diet can take many forms including the Paleo or Ketogenic diet. But what are Ketones and how do the different versions of these diets compare?
These Banana Pancakes are Gluten Free, taste great and are great for you. Plus, they provide a really good way to get kids eating bananas. The best part is that we have added our Organic Reishi Mushroom Powder which (among other things) helps boost your immune system. Paired up with the natural potassium in the bananas, this recipe provides your body with an awesome amount of nutrients to aid homeostasis.
As is always the way with pancakes, the first hotcake to come out of the pan will probably be a bit misshapen. Just scoff it, and carry on with the rest – YOTAM OTTOLENGHI
This article has been written about the sport of triathlon, however, is applicable to all physical activities whether it be gym, cross fit, tennis etc.
We all want to become fitter, stronger and faster athletes right? It’s these goals that continuously drag us out bed at 5am, drive us to complete 10+ hours of training weekly, and withhold us from a night out because we don’t want to miss that all important Saturday morning session. We make sacrifices to be the best athlete we can be and will generally do anything to improve performance…. purchase a $2k disc wheel, latest Garmin, ride an extra 2hrs on a Saturday morning, swim an extra 400m to make a clean 4km, or purchase the latest running shoes to save 50g of weight and so on… sound familiar?
Every day at Melbourne Osteopathy Sports Injury Centre we genuinely relate what we are doing to creating a ‘a healthier life for all’. This phrase is a large part of the vision that everyone at our Centre has agreed to work towards achieving each and every day. The phrase ‘a healthier life for all’ is our promise to our community. It is the drive behind our core values:
- Customer Service Excellence
- Clinical Excellence
Without a vision, we risk a journey without any real purpose or direction, as famously quoted by Helen Keller:
‘The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.’
By combining plyometric theory with basic biomechanics, we can begin to understand how manual therapies such as Osteopathy can play a role in increasing the mobility of the spine, hips and upper limb to optimise the power of your swimming stroke.
Melbourne Osteopathy Sports injury Centre will again be running its internship program for final year Osteopathy students. This year we are lucky to have the talented James Shanahan from Victoria University. I have had the privilege of teaching James for some time and know that he will make a great addition to the team.
