November is here, and with it comes a new focus. Movember is not just about growing a moustache - we must remember the very important cause - men's health. This month we challenge all our clients to complete a 60km walk or run during the month, in support of MENS HEALTH.
The Physio practice will be open throughout the festive period, only closed on public holidays.

Did you know that you can receive physiotherapy treatment for visceral (organ) issues? Or that you may experience musculoskeletal pain, such as lower back pain from an inflamed organ?
Visceral manipulation is a technique used by some physiotherapists, to assist with issues such as:
- digestive disorders
- women's and men's health
- post-operative scarring, e.g. post caesar
- traumatic injuries to chest and abdomen
Visceral manipulation is the process of gently manipulating and mobilizing deep tissue to improve the functioning of the various organs in the abdominal cavity and pelvic region. Visceral manipulation is believed to increase circulation to the affected body parts and it is also used to remove adhesions that may restrict movement, cause discomfort and increase tension in the affected area of the body. **
Some areas of pain can be due to referral from internal organs, which can lead to a misdiagnosed issue. For instance, lower back pain may be an indication of the restriction of a visceral organ, which if released may result in treatment of the lower back pain.
Often people tend to find they are trying various treatments with not much effect. In this case, a visceral soft tissue assessment by a physio, qualified in visceral manipulation techniques, can help determine the origin of the symptoms and advise appropriate treatment.
We offer visceral manipulation treatment. If interested to find out more, call us on 021 461 2159. We would love to help you!
