Physical Health Checks

core
By Michael Hall

“It’s difficult to be happy, if you are not healthy”. Good health is crucial to everything, from how you feel, to the quality of your relationships, home life, work life, sleep, energy, everything! You simply cannot be at your best, if you are not in the best health. If you want a better life, the best place to start is with yourself and a good first step is to improve your own health. But where do you start? How do you know what to do? What is going to be most effective? How can you fit another program in to you already overcrowded life schedule?

Let Bodywise Health help you implement a targeted program that will give you the best results, in the fastest time possible. The Bodywise Health physical health check and a management program have been developed to enable you to prevent illness/injury and optimise your health, so that you may live and perform at your highest level.

Who can benefit?

Everyone! Bodywise health checks are the perfect starting point on your road to recovery, whether you are an individual who wants to reclaim your health, a sports person who wants to go to the next fitness level or a corporate executive who must be at the top of your game. Bodywise physical health checks determine your physical status and identify potential problems.

2. Health Check Advanced

Health Check Advanced is a 45 minute comprehensive health assessment. It builds on the details of Health Check Basic by addressing additional health factors such as poor lung capacity, hip, knee, ankle or foot problems. The biometric tests performed include:

• Arthritis
• Back pain
• Neck pain
• Headaches
• Osteoporosis
• Balance problems
• Posture problems
• Leg and foot problems
• Excessive weight and fat
• Lack of strength and flexibility
• Heart and circulation problems
• Lung problems such as asthma and chronic obstructive airways disease

The Bodywise Health Screens are a fantastic way to gain an understanding of your current health status and by identifying potential health risks, may point to the need for further medical investigation and / or intervention. They do not replace assessment or treatment from your doctor or other health care professional. On completion of each health screen, each person will be given a customised report detailing the results of the tests, as well as advice and recommendations on what needs to be done to achieve better results.

For more information or for an appointment, please call Bodywise Health on 1 300 263 994.

The Next Step

By combining the results of each of these tests, enables us to identify both the source and cause of your problem which allows a targeted rehabilitation program to be devised and implemented. Person specific, movement specific and sport / function specific, this rehab program is then performed one on one under the instruction of your physiotherapist to make sure that the “injurying” stresses are eliminated and that your movement becomes as effective and efficient as possible.

Your posture, movement patterns, muscle activation, joint control, balance, power and grace will be monitored, perfected and progressed, ensuring that you enjoy the energy and freedom of a body working optimally. This not only prevents the reoccurrence of your physical problem, but helps to deliver sustained improvements in movement, function and sports performance.

Optimal Well Being Programs & Health Check Up Melbourne

ergonomics physiotherapy
By Michael Hall

Is optimal well being a dream or a reality for you? Many people think that it’s about having the perfect body and the perfect physique. However, good looks don’t necessarily translate into good health or good function. Rather, optimal well being blends the harmonious interaction of ideal biomechanics with optimal control, strength, flexibility and fitness. And as with all aspects of the human body, physical health does not occur in isolation, but is intimately linked with many other systems of the body including the nervous, circulatory and digestive systems.

In everyday life, optimal well being may be experienced as a vitality and freedom that enables you to feel strong, confident and secure, with a reserve of energy that enables you to meet and exceed everyday demands.

Whilst this is a goal of Bodywise Health, our initial purpose is to help you overcome your physical problems so that you get to a position where optimal physical health is a possibility. What many people fail to appreciate is that exercising at the wrong time, in the wrong way and with the wrong intensity, may do more harm than good. Consequently, an initial objective might be reduce inflammation and protect against re-injury before promoting healing.

Once healing has begun to take place, then corrective rehabilitation exercises may be implemented to remedy imperfect biomechanics and optimize every day functional movement habits. Then, the best way to prevent further physical health problems is to stay in good shape, physically, nutritionally, and psychologically, that is, to live optimally.

If optimal physical health is to become a possibility for you, everything must be taken into account in treating, resolving and preventing physical problems,. Posture, movement patterns, muscle balance, muscle activation, joint mobility, muscle flexibility, stabilization, co-ordination, balance, strength, endurance, recovery / rest, stress, nutrition are just some of the factors that must be addressed if you are to achieve the physical results and lifestyle outcomes that you want.

Your treatment doesn’t stop with the elimination of pain either. It doesn’t end when your knee or back or neck or... is better. Your goals are OUR goals and that means you returning to, achieving and / or exceeding the lifestyle goals that you want.

To us, it is no good if your shoulder is better, but that you can’t play tennis, or that your knee is pain-free, but you can’t enjoy fun runs, if these are the activities that you want to do. Good health is more than just the absence of pain, injury or disease. It is about having choices to be and do the things you want, when and where you want to do them.

By treating and resolving injuries, aches and pains every day, physiotherapists are in a unique position. Having a detailed knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics and pathology and being experienced in exercise rehabilitation and clinical pilates, gives physiotherapists the advantage of being more likely to know what works and what doesn’t, not only with fixing or preventing physical problems, but also with tweaking exercise programs so that they give better results.

Having studied heart, lung and neurological as well as bone / muscle treatment and rehabilitation, means that physiotherapists are able to draw on each of these areas to fine tune training programs and get achieve better health and lifestyle outcomes.

There are many examples of this specialized contribution to training, but some common ones include:

  1. The use of Real Time Ultrasound to assist in the activation of the deep abdominal (transverse abdominus) and lower back (multifidus) to provide better low back stability;
  2. The use of biofeedback to help activate the inside quadriceps muscle (vastus medialis oblique) to get better knee control and strength;
  3. Analyzing and correcting shoulder blade movement to improve the effectiveness and strength of lifting the arm overhead;
  4. The use of Swiss balls came from the physiotherapy treatment of children and then was applied to strength and conditioning exercise programs;
  5. Educating and instructing in correct posture, movement patterns and every day functional activities such as standing, walking, squatting, lunging, lifting etc. both from a corrective and preventative point of view.

Physiotherapists are not just on about how long, how fast, how strong, how powerful a movement is. More importantly, physiotherapists are on about HOW WELL the movement is performed.

Physiotherapists view movement quality as important as movement quantity, because it often poor movement quality that leads to mechanical stress and physical injury. And not only that, but poor movement quality will often mean that a movement will have less endurance, speed, strength, power anyway. Good posture and optimal quality of movement is the foundation upon which good performance is based. You cannot have one without the other.

At Bodywise Health, you can participate in specialist exercise programs designed to address conditions such as:

•Headaches

•Neck pain

•Back pain

•Arthritis

•Osteoporosis

•Sports injuries

These programs are delivered via the exercise mediums of:

Clinical Pilates

Hydrotherapy

Sports specific and exercise rehabilitation exercise programs

Whilst “hands on” treatment provides short term relief, exercise rehabilitation and training reinforces these gains making them more permanent. As an athlete’s body adapts to the training that they undertake, so can your body adapt to your treatment and training program so that you can overcome and prevent causes of your problem. Hence, it is only corrective exercise with postural / movement correction reinforcing “hands on” treatment that will give permanent relief and better long term functional and sporting performance.

Finally, if you subscribe to our research newsletter, you will receive fortnightly articles, tips and research on current and the latest in treatment and optimal health. This knowledge will help give you the power to make better health choices, so that you can live a better life and that is optimal physical heath is all about.

For further information on how you can benefit from Optimal Well Being Programs or for an appointment, please call us on 1 300 BODYWISE (263 994). We look forward to helping you achieve outstanding results.
