🌀HOW DO YOU BEND?🌀 check out this spinal flexion (bending)! On the left the weight is forward and there is heaps more curvature and hinging in his mid back ‼️ on the right, we have cued this patient to take more weight into the heels 👠 he still reaches his toes, but the emphasis is so much more about the HIP movement! With the hips doing more flexing, you can actually USE YOUR GLUTES AND HAMSTRINGS 🍑 and not just hang off of your ligaments and joints and hope for the best ⚠️ and suss the mid back now! See any of that excessive bending at one point in his spine? GONE! ⚡️⚡️ this is why we hashtag #movebetter on all our posts! A lot of the time pain and dysfunction can lead back to very simple movement patterns that have become lazy and neglected 😢 so do yourself a favor and 💥MOVE BETTER💥 #movebetter #physiosmart

💫OPEN SATURDAY MORNINGS 💫 you’ve spoken, we’ve listened- Physio, pilates and massage now from 8am on Saturdays! We’ll have you on track and kicking goals even if your 5 day working week wants you to do otherwise! 💪🏼 this is @nicolehamann who we’ve been treating for an interesting case of costochondritis (inflammation of the rib joint at the front of the chest), which is linked to her one-sided weakness in the obliques 💥 we’ve used #ktape to mimic her internal and external obliques to offload the ribs and relieve her pain ⭐️✨ #movebetter #physiosmart

SHOULDER PROGRESS PART 1 @justbharvthings is working on scapular (shoulder blade) stability and mobility whilst still under strict instructions for arm range of movement from his surgical team 👩‍⚕️👨‍⚕️ scapular stability and control is integral to every shoulder we see! If you imagine the shoulder joint like a golf ball on a tee- the scapula actually makes up the entire ‘tee’ part of the complex when it comes to the tip of your shoulder. If your tee is off of an angle, you won’t be able to balance your golf ball ⛳️ and hence, you haven’t got a chance in hell in getting a good functioning shoulder joint! 🔥🔥 back to basics for Brad ✅ but they make the core fundamentals for his journey back to cross fit! You go Brad!! #gobrad #movebetter #physiosmart
