Each month we create and publish articles on topics which are important to us and, we hope, important to our clients and customers. Here’s a snapshot of our education pieces throughout the month of June 2020.

 

Some Articles We Published In May


Like the rest of us, our EPs get stressed.

How we manage our stress is important to us so that we can be leaders and role models to our clients by practising what we preach.

Stress and wellbeing is a pillar of health. It affects mental health, fatigue and even pain.

Find out how our EPs manage their stress.

 

Is your claimant stuck?

How is their sleep hygiene? Fatigue? Fitness?

Are they motivated?

Do they have routine?

These are just a few focus areas Exercise Physiology programs address to help move psych claims.

Need a bit more convincing? Find out how we can help you help your claimants.

Favourites

🍦Food β€“ ice cream or mangoes!

🦡 Exercise β€“  I can’t go past prescribing a squat or variation of this.

It’s such a functional exercise and most people benefit from improving their lower limb strength. At the same time I can check their manual handling technique.

🍌 Fact β€“  Bananas are a herb!

πŸ’« Fiction β€“ I can’t go past psychological thrillers like β€œsplit” or β€œinception”

πŸ€” Myth Buster β€“ Doing the same workout for years is not going to get you results. Our bodies adapt to our level of training within about 8 weeks so if you want to keep getting stronger/fitter/more flexible you need to continually update your exercise plan!

Also a nutrition one.. you could choose any diet you like and you’d lose weight if you are in an energy deficit. The β€œtypes” of foods you eat don’t matter in the slightest for weight loss per see (but they obviously do matter for other determinants of health like ensuring your cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose control are on track).

But wait, there’s more.
