Men's Health

With Movember coming to an end, many of the males around town have suddenly lost the bit of fuzz above their top lip. The Movember movement encourages men around the globe to groom and grow their moustache during the month of November to raise awareness for the health inequalities and challenges faced by men around the world.

Having only one male staff member at Yamba Physio means that we are lacking in the facial hair department.  However, we are excited to announce that our physiotherapist Meg has recently completed additional training in Men's Health.  This includes the assessment and treatment of a variety of urinary and faecal continence issues, as well as erectile dysfunction.  These can occur as a result of the ageing process, direct trauma, post surgeries such as prostatectomy or following radiation therapy.  If you or someone you know is having any problems with the above areas, don't hesitate to book a consultation with Meg and regain control of the bits below the belt.

Studio Yamba
    

The NEW "Studio Yamba" is located at 8 Little High St, just a block away from our Yamba practice.  It is a brand new, specific built,  fantastic exercise space that we are fortunate enough to have as an additional area to hold our classes.  So far we are using this space for most of our Pilates classes and Yoga Classes.

"Studio Yamba" is also a great backup space for the Mums n Bubs and Pramfit Classes when the weather is too unpleasant to be outdoors.

Come and check it out!!!

Wishing you and your families all a very merry Christmas.  We hope you get to take time out to have some family time over the next few weeks.

We thank you for supporting our Physio family and hope we can continue to support, strengthen, mobilize, stretch, tape you next year.

Physio  TIP ! 
 
Make the most of those moments like waiting for the kettle boil to fit in some exercise. 

Try doing 10 squats and 15 heel raises (up and down on toes) to get you started!
