With the winter sports well and truly over and basketball season upon us, it is a great time to fix those ankle that have been troubling you.

The ankle is made up of a number of bone which all interact with each other as you perform movement. As the ankle joint can move in a wide range of directions so it is vital that the muscles surrounding the joint are able to adequately control its movement.

A number of exercises can be prescribed to target areas of weakness to ensure a strong base of support for the knee and hip to work from while allowing all the small bones to work as intended.

If you are having ankle troubles, give us a call to discuss what we can do for you.

Methinks you have an interloper in the room

Warming up and stretching are not normally associated with lawn bowls although it can assist in reducing aches and pains in day to day life.

And bowling requires forward bending, maintaining hamstring length allows your pelvis to rotate as required. If you spend lots of time sitting, your hamstrings have an increased likelihood of being tight.
Stretching of the arms will also reduce tightness around the shoulders and neck. This can be aggravated by the repetitive arm movements while bowling and reduce performance.

Poor bending mechanics when picking bowls up form the floor can also lead to low back pain. Give this alternative method a go to see if it changes your back pain.

If you have any problems that you believe may be affecting your bowling, book an assessment with your local exercise physiologist.

Our Nutrition amigos, Dr Jen and Kate ventured to Perth on the weekend to refresh their knowledge on the microbiota, here are some key messages the team took away from the session:
.
🧫 Diet rapidly and reproducibly alters the human gut microbiome, but long term compliance to a healthful diet is essential for microbiome resilience
.
🧫No matter how much of a bad rap E. Coli get, we NEED them to help us make CoEnzyme Q10, a nutrient essential for energy production
.
🧫 Some groups of bacteria influence sleep quality, so exploring gut health is likely to be essential for those with insomnia
.
🧫 Herbal medicines can be very helpful in reducing some “overgrowths” of bacteria, but should be used with caution and short term, because they could be influencing many other groups of bacteria too.
.
Dr Jen and @kate_naturopath are well equipped to help you explore your microbiota health, get in touch with team if you’d like to know more
