September 2021 – news                            Home

If you are anything like us, sometimes you will hear a song that then goes round and round in your head. As soon as we started thinking about hips, it was Time Warp… “With your hands on your hips, you bring your knees in tight…” No apologies for adding that bit of cheer to your day!

This month we are discussing hips and how they affect our bodies. As time goes on, our balance and movement is often not what it was. Feeling stiff or tightness in our hips can also show as pain in our backs or knees, especially if we spend extend periods sitting down. There are many simple exercises we can do to alleviate tightness from in our hips. One of the simplest its to stand up, stretch, bend one knee and hold. Repeat on the other side then bend you knee back, grab an ankle, pulling gently behind you. Next time you are in, ask us to demonstrate these and some other simple exercises…. all best done to music, naturally.

We’re glad to be back after yet another period when we simply had to press pause. We have started work again and will be seeing patients as our schedules allow. 

We are a little sad that Nell has decamped to the far south coast to start her chiropractic course; Christina, starts hers too, but will be with us on Fridays. AND we now get to introduce you all to Charlotte, who will be joining us from a career background too varied to list. We know she will be a great addition to our team. You can book appointments here.

The weather may not be improving but this scrumptious snack – courtesy of our very own Jan Ware – can be made and popped in the fridge. Any hint of sun or blue sky, grab it and hit the great outdoors. It’s also good in front of the TV after a busy work day!
