    Setting up your work station

    As part of our live video series, our physiotherapists Sarah Yule and Laura Scott recently ran through some great exercises to prevent neck and shoulder pain. With so many of us working from home or doing remote learning, our physios identified the best method to set up the home office and ran through a series of exercises to assist with reducing pain and stiffness.

    Try the following exercise series:

    Neck stretches

    Bring your ear across to your shoulder. Hold for 15 seconds and repeat on the opposite side.

    Thoracic rotation in sitting

    Sit at the front of your chair. Turn your whole top half to one side as far as comfortable. Repeat on the opposite side.

    Thoracic extension

    Sitting back in the chair. Place your hands on the side of your head. Lean back as far as comfortable.

    Thoracic side bend

    Sitting on the chair. Lean to one side as far as comfortable. Feel free to reach across with your arm.

    Hip flexor stretch

    In a standing or kneeling position – lunge or lean forward. You should feel a gentle stretch on the back leg at the front of the thigh.

    Squat

    Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Gently bend both knees into a squat position as far as comfortable.

    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. Shoulder impingement can be incredibly frustrating and painful. 

Tony has been working closely with our physiotherapists Vernon and Dilen to get on top of his shoulder pain. His treatment plan has included hands-on physiotherapy and individualised exercises in our hydrotherapy and strength programs.

    You Deserve to Feel Good.
