Pain and Injury Management for Office Workers

  • Do you have a job that requires you to sit for long periods of time, hunched over a desk or a computer?
  • Are you a tradie, bending over and lifting all day everyday as part of your job?
  • Are you a Doctor, Dentist or other health professional bending all day or placed in awkward positions to be able to serve your clients?
  • Are you a student, hunch over your books and laptop for hours on end, studying for your degree?
  • Are you a tattooist, sitting in a chair and bending over for hours creating your craft?

No matter how you spend your days or your occupation, many of us spend our days bending, climbing, carrying, twisting, turning and suffering in silence with back and neck pain.

Even with correct lifting techniques, physical labour can result in back, neck, knee and shoulder pain or injury.

Many of these factors have a profound affect of your lifestyle. Back and neck pain has become the number one reason for absenteeism from work and approximately 80% of Australians visit their GP each year to manage their pain.

What if we told you it doesn’t have to be that way? That freedom from pain is possible.

Research has repeatedly proven that movement along with adequate nutrition and sleep is important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Not only does it improve the way we look and feel, it also improves our function, movement, strength, flexibility and agility. By looking and feeling good, it directly impacts and improves our daily lifestyle.

At the OMC we understand how pain can have a huge impact in your life and would like to demonstrate ways on how utilising MedX equipment along with functional movement and exercise can effectively manage and in some cases eliminate pain and reinjury.

Our goal is to help you achieve an optimum lifestyle, to live, work and play with optimum health. By maintaining a strong core and activating and stabilising the correct muscle groups, pain and discomfort can be a thing of the past and you can continue doing what you love and live pain free*.

No two bodies are the same, we all have different needs and requirements. Our daily factors and unique bodies require a unique training program. Combining MedX equipment along with functional exercises, strength and conditioning, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention training, we will tailor a program to ensure you gain the most benefits from your training and to live a pain free* life.

MedX equipment has been scientifically designed and uses proven technology, incorporating years and millions of dollars of medically based, independent and university based research. This equipment is designed to increase strength, endurance and range of motion. We have linked 75 Clinically Published Research Medical journal articles that confirm that MedX's proprietary technology can materially decrease chronic spine-related pain issues, restore spinal function, reduce or eliminate the need for ongoing care, and improve patients’ quality of life. We think that’s pretty exciting news!

Movement made fun for children with ASD

Numerous reports have proven the importance of staying active to maintain our health and wellbeing. However children with these learning difficulties may be easily distracted in noisy environments, listening to instructions, and visual or organisational learning may be challenging.

Neural Pathways and Learning for Children with ADHD/ADD or Austism

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder has been described as impulsive behaviour, hyperactivity or difficulty concentrating, unable to sit still, difficulty finish projects and forgetfulness in children and adults. In Autism, certain areas of the brain are impaired leading to difficulty with emotional control, memory, learning capacity and perceptions.

Neuroplasticity or reorganising the brain has shown some promising results in recent studies. Neuroplasticity has shown that by working hard at positive change behaviour, consistently and with exerted effort, we can reorganise our brain.

Studies have shown that working on reorganising the brain in a ‘natural’ manner, this entails following the body’s natural movements, has shown great results,. Repetitive training is especially beneficial along with consistency to help increase new neural connections improved function.

The brain has a remarkable ability to develop, grow, change, heal and complete complex tasks. Neuroplasticity is more dynamic in younger brains. This shows great promise in being able to assist children with ADHD, ADD, Autism or other learning difficulties.

There are many strategies one can incorporate into reorganising the brain. By finding what best suits your child, practicing and developing that strategy, will benefit them greatly. The strategies prescribed by many specialists include being switched-on, using intense focus, performing tasks repetitively, practicing skills sets and techniques, using visualisation techniques, playing out scenarios, reinforcing positive behaviour are all proven systems that help to reorganise the brain.

At the Optimum Movement Centre we understand the importance of physical movement and utilise the above principles when training children. Our professional Instructors use a systematic approach to learning. Each lesson is structured to be ‘hands-on’ and uses repetition so that your child gets to practice the task and technique. There are also audio cues, visual learning and activities throughout the session to keep your child engaged.

We incorporate whole body exercises, bilateral and unilateral tasks and skills so that your child will learn to use their whole body dynamically and in ways they may not have utilised it before. Several moving parts will come together as they begin to coordinate left and right, top to bottom, forwards and backwards. Cognitive function improves as they use both left and right sides of the brain and body in a fun and creative environment.

Movement based games and training also helps your child to develop focus and development program solving skills in a safe and fun environment. Not only do they develop fitness and coordination, they use intense focus on a task to develop mindfulness and presence.

Whether your child requires support for athletic endeavours or movement based training to assist with coordination, balance and focus, we will create a program design to support your child’s unique needs. Children following sporting endeavours require strength and coordinating training to support their movement. All athletes use strength and conditioning to assist with their athletic endeavours, enabling them to train fitter, faster and stronger, preventing injury and creating endurance.

A group environment may not necessarily suit your child as being in a busy environment and being around others may easily distract them or they may retract in a group setting. We offer one on one private session to ensure your child receives the undivided attention of an experience instructor in to ensure they gain the most benefits from their session.
We are passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of children and helping them improve their health and wellbeing. Please contact us today and see how we can be of service to your child by filling in the form below

Pelvic Floor Health

Pelvic floor weakness affects men and women and may be the result of being overweight, associated straining with constipation, persistent heavy lifting, excessive coughing, high impact exercise, ageing as well as changes in hormone levels during menopause and childbirth in women.

Although the pelvic floor muscles are hidden from view, they play an important role in continence, organ support, core strength and stability. These muscles work with the abdominal and back muscles to stabilise and support the spine. The pelvic floor muscles can be consciously controlled and therefore trained much like any other muscle, such as your arm or leg muscles and like other muscles, need regular exercise to function optimally.
