Transient Forefoot Compression Neuropathy with Chronic Elliptical Trainer Exercise Use
Many patients use elliptical trainers as part of their fitness program and the vast majority of them have reported few complaints with their proper use. Unfortunately, some individuals complain of an uncomfortable tingling or “pins and needles” sensation in the plantar forefoot that seems to be peculiar to the use of the elliptical trainer exercise machine.
POST RACE RECOVERY | Firstly, Congratulations.
Our team have complied a few key tips for those having raced at Ultra-Trail Australia or SMH Half Marathon this past weekend.
1) Begin rehydration within 10 minutes of completing the race and also replace electrolytes, using a formula such as Powerade or Gatorade. This will also help to replenish some of your energy/glucose stores.
Our practice keeps growing and our patients are asking for another female physiotherapist.
The position we are offering would suit a physiotherapist wanting to work a few hours a week of an afternoon and evening. We would love you to have experience treating Musculoskeletal disorders. It would be a great addition if you have experience in Womens’ Health, Dance and / or Hands.
If you want to join our fabulous team, please send your application to email@example.com or call 4721 5567.

What is it?
Ankylosing Spondylitis (or AS) is a disease that causes inflammation and pain to the spine. It affects 1-2% of Australians of the population. The first symptoms usually appear between the ages of 15-40 years; and are 2 to 3 times more common in men. The diagnosis is made by a Specialist Rheumatologist with a thorough examination, blood tests results and Ct-scan, MRI or X-Rays of the spine and pelvis. Symptoms include chronic low back pain of insidious onset, joint stiffness in the morning, pain aggravated by rest and improved with activity, and pain in the second half of the night.
