Exercise is the best medicine

injuryrehabcentre Jan 30, 2019
 

Exercise has been proven time and time again to be the best and most effective treatment for Muscle and joint pain. The human body does not work like a machine, where the more you use it, the quicker it will wear out. Our body adapts to what it is being exposed to, which leads to a stronger and more robust system! Exercise is a natural pain killer and has an anti-inflammatory effect!

Contrast to common beliefs, it is those who are inactive or sedentary who are more likely to have LX disc, knee and rotator cuff issues. Exercise is the best medicine.

Running does not wear out your knees

injuryrehabcentre running Jan 28, 2019
 

Are you worried that running may be wearing out your knees? Have you been told that by running you are putting yourself at risk of this occurring? The good news is we can confidently say that this is a myth and that this age-old myth of running wearing out your knee joints needs to be busted back to the 20th century!

Modern research shows that this is far from the case. A study looked MRI scans of healthy marathon runners and found that there were less findings of tears in the knee cartilage than the sedentary population.

This provides evidence that more running does not simply mean more 'wear and tear' In fact, it may be quite the opposite!

Top 3 mistakes runners make

injuryrehabcentre runner Jan 28, 2019
 
Injuries amongst runners are all too common! Many of them can be avoided. Here are three common mistakes that runners make which can lead to injury:‍
 
Increase training load too much too soon
Avoid strength training out of fear it will have a negative influence on their running. when research shows it actually improves running efficiency and reduces injury risk.
 
Only running on one type of surface. Running on multiple different surfaces provides variety which is essential in any training program and allows the body to make numerous adaptations due to being exposed to different forces.

Periodisation for cricketers!

Uncategorized Jan 28, 2019
 
One of the biggest injury woes for the Australian cricket team over the last decade has been back injuries in our fast bowlers, in particular, stress fractures. The main scapegoat for this was too much bowling! However, following the strength and conditioning principle of periodisation, it appears that it is not quite the case! 

The main issue was the fast bowlers were doing too little in the lead up to a test series and then when it came to game time the load on the body was significantly greater than their usual training load! Another key factor was that the players were not having an adequate rest after the spike in activity and load, leading to a lot of overload injuries.

This principle applies to everyone no matter what your fitness level and training goals! Having a steady training volume and avoiding big spikes in training load are highly valuable! Also, don't underestimate the value of rest! At TIRC we use the latest technology and equipment to guide you through your...

Shoulder surgery: Is it a waste of time?

injuryrehabcentre Jan 28, 2019
 

Shoulder pain is a huge issue across the general population with 4.5 million visits to the doctor each year and costing US $3 billion treating them!

Multiple studies have shown there to be no difference between a sham surgery and the subacromial decompression surgery. After 40 years it has been shown that you can argue it has been nothing more than a placebo. This is not the first trial to show these results, with up to 5 studies showing the same results!

This highlights the benefits of managing shoulder pain conservatively with exercise to get the best results that empower you, improves your general health and saves a lot of wasted time recovering from surgery.

Top 3 reason why heels spurs are okay

injuryrehabcentre Jan 28, 2019
 

Have you been told that you have a heel spur? and it is the reason for your heel pain? The image of a real cowboy spur like the team logo of the San Antonio Spurs often comes to mind when we hear this diagnosis.Thankfully this is far from the case! Here are three reasons why:

1/ A 'heel spur' is simply a bony adaptation to strengthen the local tissue and make it more robust! What a clever system we have! 

2/ The bony adaptation is not a sharp nasty looking bone, like what you see on a cowboy's heel spur.

3/ In fact, there are plenty of people out there who have 'heel spurs' with no heel pain at all!
