Top 3 Social Media bits of 2022

Deadlift Variations

The most liked post on social media was this post from our blog: Squats & Deadlift: What Suits You Better? 

This post demonstrated the difference in trunk and leg position in 2 different people with very different body structure. We saw that limb and trunk length have a big impact on deadlift and squat technique. Thanks to Eric Huang, one of our senior physiotherapists, for this great post and blog.

Strength Training for Cyclists

And the 3rd most liked post on our social media is this one about strength training for cyclists. Another great post from Eric!

This post highlighted the importance of alternating your sessions by switching the compound hip/knee dominant work around, and to focus on the heavier compound exercises in one session and then on offset/single leg work with more stability challenge in the other session.

Dr. Alison Grimaldi continued to teach the world about hips

Looking Back at 2022 - Alison Brisbane Workshop
Looking Back at 2022 - Alison Online Workshop

In case you are not aware, Alison has a special passion for the hip and pelvic region, the topic of her PhD, ongoing research, and over 100 workshops provided around the world to physiotherapists and other health and exercise professionals.

With Covid still impacting travel, her workshops were limited for most of the year, but we managed to bring together health professionals from all over Australia for her Brisbane workshops in July. Alison has also provided short workshops in conferences at the Gold Coast and Sydney, online workshops for health professionals from all over the world and online conference presentations or hosted workshops for groups in Spain, Brazil, Ireland, and New Zealand.

Alison continues to run her popular Hip Academy, a community of over 200 health professionals from all over the globe who have a special passion in learning more and helping more people with their hip pain.
Right now, Alison has set out on another adventure, and is headed to London, where she will be holding some more practical workshops for other physiotherapists. We wish Alison all the best with her workshops, and safe travels!
In 2023, she already has teaching tours planned for Canada and the USA, and the UK and Europe, as well as local and online workshops booked. She is keynoting as conferences in Canada & Sweden. It will certainly be a busy year but Alison's passion for furthering knowledge about hip pain only continues to grow.

We Welcomed Our New Site!

Looking Back at 2022 - New PhysioTec Site

In 2022 it was out with the old, and in with the new, as we welcomed our brand-new site. The main focus was a much more user-friendly site, that was able to provide patients with useful information, whilst also making the process of booking with a physio much easier.

The site also welcomed our new condition pages, which seek to make it easier for you to read about common conditions, and then easily find and book with a physio specialised in that condition.

We Brough Back our Popular Pilates Classes!

In 2022, we re-introduced our popular Clinical Pilates classes! With the aim of helping you improve your muscle tone and flexibility, and getting you moving with strength and confidence.

Led by our pilates instructor, Lauren, we bring the opportunity to exercise in a safe, friendly environment with tranquil surrounds.

Dance Physiotherapy Wrap Up for 2022

Concert Time!

This time of year, dancers are most likely just about to perform in their end of year concert. Concert time is usually associated with extra rehearsals, less time for warm-ups and cool downs, and repeating the same movements over and over again! This means our bodies don’t receive as much care as they especially need during this busy time of year.

The PhysioTec dance team challenges all our dancers to take 3 minutes before classes, rehearsals, or performances during concert time to run through the following quick warm-up to better prepare the body and improve recovery.

A Notable Achievement for Dance Physiotherapy in 2022!

In July, our dance physio Rhianna competed in the Australian Dance Crew Championships (ADCC) with her team Home Run from The Home Base Dance Studio and they took out first place at the Brisbane qualifying round!

Then in August we had some more amazing news! Rhianna and her team competed in the national competition of the Australian Dance Crew Championships (ADCC) held in Sydney, where they ended up winning the competition! Home Run were announced as the champions against each of the crews in their division that came to compete from all over Australia.

This was a great acheivement from our Dance Physio Rhianna, and we are all very proud of her!
