Free Community Workshops

Osteoporosis, bone health and back pain

Tuesday 16th October 2018, 6-7pm.

World Osteoporosis Day is coming up on Saturday 20th October and to celebrate we are running a free community health workshop. Our physios are presenting on osteoporosis, bone health, and back pain, and what you can do for prevention and management.

Worldwide, one in three women and one in five men aged 50 years and over will suffer an osteoporotic fracture. Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and fragile, so that they break easily – even as a result of a minor fall, a bump, a sneeze, or a sudden movement. Fractures caused by osteoporosis can be life-threatening and a major cause of pain and long-term disability.

Can osteoporosis and fractures be prevented? Yes, if action is taken early! Come along to our workshop to learn more.

Cost: FREE!
When: 6 – 7pm, Tuesday 16th October 2018
Where: UprightCare clinic, Suite 8, level 1, 97 Grafton Street, Bondi Junction (in the Meriton Suites).

Bookings are essential! Our last workshop was booked out so remember to RSVP as soon as possible!

How to Exercise Right with Pain and Injuries

Tuesday 22nd May 2018, 6-7pm.

Do you exercise right? This is the number one question we are being encouraged to ask ourselves during the upcoming National Exercise Right Week. To help you answer this question we are hosting a free community workshop on how to exercise right when you have pain and injuries.

When our patients come into the clinic we often hear how they have stopped all exercise completely as a result of their pain or injury. Whilst this is sometimes necessary, recent studies have shown that exercise is a wonderful way to promote healing throughout the body. But we don’t want you to overdo it! So what is the right amount of exercise and what kinds of exercise should we do when injured and in pain?

This one hour workshop will be run by our physiotherapists. The workshop will include practical components and will cover:
– A recap of current research into how the body heals after injuries and how exercise can play a role.
– Learning about how to tune into your body and discovering when pain is harmful during exercise, and when it can be helpful in identifying how we should move our body.
– Simple and practical exercises, stretches and tips: to get you moving, back on your feet and back to the types of exercise that you enjoy.
– Question time with our physios.

This workshop is for all ages and abilities.
