What we’ll cover

    Family Fit

    Family Fit is our latest service to be launched at Malvern East Physiotherapy. Our team prides itself on keeping the community active and injury free and this is even more pertinent throughout this COVID-19 period.

    With school, club and representative sports being postponed for the indefinite future, our team is keen to keep your skills sharp whilst also remaining fit and active. Our physiotherapists have developed specialised circuits tailored to different age groups ranging from year 5 to year 12.

    Classes will be kept to individual families living in the same household, up to a maximum of 4 participants for the current period as we ensure adherence to social distancing principles. Furthermore, restricting the  number of participants allows our team to ensure that you are performing exercises with correct technique and are getting the most out of your exercise.

    These circuits will be of benefit regardless of what sport your child plays, as we focus on generalised sport specific movement patterns and strength rather than sport specific skills.

    Each circuit will include 8 stations each with a specific purpose as outlined below.

    1.     Glute Activation
    2.     Jump and Land technique
    3.     Agility
    4.     Cardiovascular Fitness
    5.     Lower Limb Strength
    6.     Upper Limb Strength
    7.     Abdominal Strength
    8.     Stability/Balance

    The sessions will be run in a circuit-based format mimicking that of HIIT (high-intensity interval training). Each class will be supervised by one of our trained physiotherapists who will facilitate technique and give both progressions and regressions should they be required.

    Parents are more than welcome to come along too with a separate full body strengthening circuit available also.

    To organise your Family Fit session, call our clinic today.

    Back to school 🔙📚

Last week we were fortunate enough to head back to uni and refresh our anatomy knowledge at @latrobeuni in the anatomy labs. 

Thank you to the Latrobe School of Physiotherapy for inviting us! Last week our team celebrated another great year. 

Whilst Melbourne’s weather had its own plans, we were still determined to keep with the theme of ‘Italian Summer’. We let our hair down to master the art of mixology 🍸🍹followed by an Italian feast. Friday morning Run Club with the team. Practicing what we preach!

Staying stronger, healthier and happier. This time last week, our team was nervously completing their final preparations for @melbmara . 

Congratulations to our physiotherapists and ME community who ran on the day.

Dilen and Michael completed their first marathons. Abbey and Lizzie smashed out their first half. Last Sunday, our team headed down to see our own Matt Warren win a premiership in the VAFA Premier Men’s Competition. Last week our team dedicated a full day to professional development and team building. At ME Physio we pride ourselves on collaboration to put you at the centre of everything we do. 

Our team covered the latest treatments for back pain, financial well-being and finished off the day with salsa dancing. 

Many thanks to our guests including James Schomburgk from @the2ndvisitphysio , Financial Planners Tony Vikram & Cameron Bishop and the @salsafoundation At ME Physio, our focus is on helping you get stronger so that you can keep doing the things you love.

For Tony and Joan, healthier and stronger is being able to navigate the iconic Coast to Coast Walk in the UK! We recently had the pleasure of hosting Elise Bujor from Women’s & Men’s Health Physiotherapy to discuss women’s health issues across the lifespan. 

Our team pride themselves on staying up to date to ensure you’re able to stay healthier, happier and stronger. Huge milestones over the past few weeks with both Tom and Jude from @delasallefc doing their first bit of running in their rehab. 

Tom is on the return from an ankle dislocation whilst Jude is putting in the hard work following a knee reconstruction. Last week our team enjoyed some friendly rivalry at the footy. 

With finals around the corner, some of our team can now safely make holidays plans for September. We recently had the pleasure of hosting the podiatry team from @sespodiatry. 

Our physiotherapists Michael and Abbey presented on rehabilitation following Achilles surgical repair and ankle surgery. Last weekend some of our team got together to complete the 10 km run @runmelbourne. There was no finish line picture as some were keen to run another 15 km!

Whilst running wasn’t for some - brunch was well received by everyone.

    You Deserve to Feel Good.
