Monthly newsletter - JULY 2018
Welcome, July! It's a huge month in the Allied Health world, with 9-14 July marking National Diabetes Week and National Pain Week running from 23-29 July. As part of our pain series, last month we looked at chronic vs. acute pain and this month we've explored headaches, as well as sciatica vs. leg pain. With the explosion of Crossfit around the globe, we've put the spotlight on the common complaint - shoulder bursitis. And while we're on the topic of sport and exercise, we're talking about exercise prescription and why this is such an important part of osteopathic treatment. Finally, we've put together a post-Gold Coast Marathon checklist for your best recovery. See you next month!

Although osteopathy is a manual therapy, with hands-on techniques, movement is also a core feature. Osteopaths will often use movement - exercise prescription - as part of their treatment plan.
Exercise has known benefits for helping the body and the mind and osteopathy recognises it's value in recovery, management of illness and injury and maintenance of wellbeing. So, how does it work?
Crossfit creates fitness like nothing else and offers a complexity and variation that makes it super popular. But, what about those shoulders?
