We know it's not always possible, but when you're recovering from injury or dealing with chronic pain, it's useful to view food as the fuel that runs your body.
Food has a huge impact on how your body operates. The right eating plan can help you manage inflammation, muscle recovery, and even the quality of sleep needed to make sure and injury or condition improves.
Food, diets, calorie tracking, macronutrients - all of these things can feel like a minefield - so the Movement Clinic team are here to support you. Our expert in-house team will help you understand how what you eat can help or hinder the condition you're dealing with.
Inflammation isn't always bad. When it's operating in your body correctly, it's helping you to heal and fighting off infection. However, excessive inflammation can lead to a series of serious health conditions, including arthritis, heart disease, and even Alzheimers.
When out of control, inflammation can go from being a useful part of your recovery from injury to being a real hinderance - one that can have your injury or condition hanging around much longer than necessary.
The food we eat plays a significant role in controlling inflammation. However, making changes to your diet is notoriously difficult. If an anti-inflammation diet could help on your road to recovery, we'll guide you through the process - including the kinds of foods you should be aiming for, the foods you should be reducing, tracking your eating, and understanding exactly what these changes are doing.
Nutrition plays a powerful role when your body is recovering from an injury. During the first stage of recovery and rehabilitation, controlling inflammation is essential - but in the later stages, the food you eat will help your body remove damaged tissue, establish a strong blood supply, and create stronger, more resilient muscle tissue.
The Movement Clinic team can help you understand what your body is going through as you recover from injury - and how to make sure your eating supports this recovery.
There will be changes to the amount you eat, what you eat, supplements you can take, and when you eat.
You can spend countless hours researching this information online or in books - but it's very hard to tell what's useful information and what's a sales pitch designed to sell books or get you signed up to a monthly app payment. We'll help you cut through the noise, understand the science, and make simple changes that will take you down the road to recovery quickly.
When you get in touch to arrange a consultation here at Movement Clinic, we'll start by finding a time that works around your schedule. We work before, during, and after standard work day times - and if that doesn't work for you, we can arrange a weekend appointment.
When you arrive, your consultation will take place in our comfortable treatment room. You'll have the opportunity to discuss your issue with one of our expert therapists and, in turn, they'll ask some questions and discuss their thoughts about the kind of treatment and rehabilitation techniques they think will be most effective.
Ordinarily, we'll be able to start your treatment in the same session - so it's a good idea to come in loose comfortable sports clothing. Don't worry if you've come straight from work - you're welcome to use our private changing area.
I saw Regis at Movement Clinic for a bundle of appointments over my knee injury. I have been satisfied with the physiotherapy sessions and the speed of my recovery. The sessions were excellent. Regis is very knowledgeable and professional. He guided me through exercises to improve the stability and strength of my knee, corrected my posture, and gave me a preventative exercise plan to avoid injury reoccurring. I can strongly recommend this clinic.
I had an ankle surgery 2 months ago and since I started my sessions with Regis Da Silva in the Physiotherapy center my recovery progress has been amazing! I’m so thankful, both the service and treat are excellent, highly recommended and also great location!
I got injured pretty badly in my groin and lower back after a weekend of surfing. Regis was quick in finding the exact issue and helping me to recover with mobility and rehabilitating exercises. I was able to get back to exercise much faster than I expected. I highly recommend Regis!
