Restore Your Core

At Aspire Physiotherapy, we often see people develop injuries, as a result of having poor core strength and posture. Everyday in the clinic we educate people on why it's so important to maintain your strength, and teach them how to go about strengthening the key muscles. Yes there is often a LOT of information for the person to take in, and in many situations in life, it's thought we only retain about 10% of what we get told. For that reason, we've put together a comprehensive program, to help guide you through the process of strengthening your core muscles, to help overcome injury, improve posture and function, and avoid injury in the future.

Team Physio at National Hockey Championships

2015 Under 18 National Hockey Championships Earlier this year I was privileged to be a part of the 2015 mens under 18 hockey championships as the travelling physiotherapist for the South Australian team. We travelled to Melbourne for 11 days and competed against 7 other states in a very competitive and highly skilled tournament.
