Dry July, Are You In? 🍺⁠
⁠
Dry July is a fundraiser that encourages you to go alcohol-free in July to raise funds for people affected by cancer. ⁠
⁠
The funds you raise as part of your Dry July will provide invaluable services for cancer patients, their families and carers – whether it’s a lift to a life-saving appointment, guidance from a specialist nurse, connection to an informative voice, access to therapy programs or a bed close to treatment. ⁠
⁠
Having a month off alcohol also has great health benefits, such as sleeping better, having more energy and of course, no hangovers! So, you're not only helping others, you're helping yourself. It's a win-win! ⁠
⁠
Use the link in our bio to learn how you can be dry this July 👍
Global MND Awareness Day 🧠⁠
⁠
Last week marked MND day. MND or Motor Neuron Disease causes messages from the motor neurones to gradually stop reaching the muscles. This leads the muscles to weaken, stiffen and waste. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. Some people also experience changes in their thinking and behaviour.⁠
⁠
There is no cure for MND but regular treatment can help to retain function and quality of life and provide comfort.⁠
⁠
Our allied health team can assist with MND and can help patients live fuller lives through a range of our services including Physiotherapy, OT, Dietetics and Exercise Physiology 🏃‍♂️⁠

Men's Health Week 2022 ⁠
⁠
There are five key barriers that prevent men from seeking support and information for their health. It's important that we break these barriers down and encourage men that their health is not worth hiding behind! ⁠
⁠
Understanding the five barriers 👇⁠
1. Hoping it's not an issue?⁠
You might be experiencing denial⁠
⁠
2. Taking too long to do something about your health?⁠
This is known as delayed information seeking⁠
⁠
3. Worried that asking for help is perceived as being weak?⁠
This is called the social construct of masculinity and it can be a barrier to us looking after our health⁠
⁠
4. Have trouble talking about your health?⁠
Feeling nervous or embarrassed about starting a conversation can be a barrier to getting the support you need.⁠
⁠
5. Not sure what information to trust?⁠
Figuring out what health information you can trust can be a barrier to taking action on our health.⁠
⁠
Need some help? Head to healthymale.com to learn more👍

Saturday marked National Cheese Day! 🧀⁠
⁠
We all love a little bit (or a lot!) of cheese in our diets but sometimes cheese can come with the stigma that it's not good for us. To help clear that myth up, Sports & Spinal Dietitian Caitlin has weighed in on what she thinks about cheese in our diets 👇⁠
⁠
Cheese Pros:⁠
 🧀 Good source of protein and calcium⁠
 🧀 Lots of different types that can be used for different things⁠
 🧀 Hard cheeses are low in lactose so are still suitable for people with lactose intolerance⁠
⁠
Things to be mindful of:⁠
 🧀 Can be more energy-dense, so you may like to choose lite options depending on your nutrition goals⁠
 🧀 Need to be mindful of food safety when including them in sandwiches/salads/other dishes⁠
🧀 Need to keep cold with an ice brick in a cool bag when at school or work if you don't have access to a fridge⁠
⁠
If you need help with their cheese intake or diet get in touch with your local Sports & Spinal team today!
Do you know what MS is? How does it affect the human body? Can it be treated? Let us explain 👇⁠
⁠
🧠 Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common diseases of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Today, 2.8 million people around the world have MS.⁠
⁠
🧠 MS is an inflammatory demyelinating condition. It is caused by damage to myelin – a fatty material that insulates nerves. In MS, the loss of myelin affects the way nerves conduct electrical impulses to and from the brain. Symptoms can include blurred vision, weak limbs, tingling sensations, unsteadiness, memory problems, and fatigue.⁠
⁠
🧠 Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40. MS is two to three times more common in women than in men. There is no drug that can cure MS, but treatments are available which can modify the course of the disease.⁠
⁠
The Sports & Spinal team can help those with MS. Get in touch with our team today to learn more ⁠

How does exercise help with mental health? ⁠
⁠
There is ample evidence that suggests exercise is an effective treatment method for people suffering from acute and chronic mental illness.⁠
⁠
Exercise can make a big difference in mood and needs to be a fundamental part of mental health treatment. Even one workout a week is known to have great benefits.⁠
⁠
Exercise can also counteract the side effects of some medications such as reducing the risk of falling by strengthening muscles and helping control body weight and blood pressure.⁠
⁠
