Welcome to our June Newsletter!

We are thrilled for Dave and Shona as they announce the safe arrival of beautiful baby Nathan! Everyone is doing well and adjusting to a new and amazing life. Please join us in congratulation Dave and Shona and wish them all the very best!


Our physiotherapist, Vincent, has created a couple of quick videos with some taping techniques that you can do at home if you have an injury.

First up is knee taping. This can be used if you have knee pain, however, please note, that there are many ways to tape the knee - and so while this is appropriate for some conditions, it is not appropriate or the best choice for all knee conditions and injuries. It is always best to have an assessment with a physiotherapist to see if this would be appropriate.

With taping, it is important that if the tape makes the skin red or itchy to take it off straight away. You can generally shower with the tape on (and pat dry afterwards) and leave on for a couple of days (in the acute stage) or for the event (if taping to get through a game and reduce the risk of injury). Of course, you should always have your injury assessed first to ensure that this tape is correct for you and that any return to your normal activities is advisable at that particular time.

If there are any questions, always please contact us on 95801985 or book an appointment below.


Continuing on the topic of taping, Kate (our Lymphoedema Physio) has a new blog on lymphatic taping!

Lymphatic taping differs from rigid sports taping to aid the movement of assist in the reduction of fluid along lymphatic pathways. It is used to manage mild to moderate cases of lymphoedema or swelling. Lymphatic taping is different to lymphatic bandaging, which involved more bulky bandaging, but can be necessary in more severe cases of lymphoedema.

Lymphatic taping can be used to assist lymphoedema if the skin is not allergic to the tape, and aims to improve the fluid movement along esisting lymphatic pathways. This method of taping can also assist in swelling management of other conditions such as hematomas and post surgery.

If you believe this could be beneficial, ask your physiotherapist or lymphoedema therapist if it would be appropriate for you.
