Keep Your Body Moving

Keep it Moving!

It is very important for a human body to keep moving to maintain lasting agility. Its not just about going to the gym everyday. You can do it in and outside your house, or while walking your dog and even while preparing meals. 

Ya-Ling Liou said movement is an important part of mitigating everyday pain and keeping the body agile. We all have our own path and we need to make peace with it. Once we do, we will find balance in our body and mind. Maybe we’ll only get a glimpse of balance, but striving for it is what life is all about. Any seasoned athlete will tell you that if you fail, fall or miss the mark, you get up, dust yourself off and try it again. That’s the only way to move forward, so you might as well do it armed with good information. 

PhysioCall Gladstone offers not just treatments, we also offer coaching on how you can keep your body healthy. They say "one small thing is better than nothing". You can start small, few routines, and that's still better than not exercising at all.

Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands or SAID is being used for years now when it comes to rehabilitation and sports training. It is very direct as it sounds. It is similar to the concept "USE IT or LOSE IT" which is scientifically proven theory that the human body responds to any stressors given to it.
Your body movement connects to your brain. Our body's function is to move and like vehicle engines that is left unused our body and brain will get used to it and by the time you want to use it, it will have problems. Our brain is not used of not receiving signals from our body anymore. It is vital that we keep the communication between our body and brain.

I often hear friends say how they struggle getting back to regular exercise after a lull in their routine. They feel that they've lost any gains they previously made. That sense of regression happens more quickly as we age -- not because we're necessarily more decrepit, but because our wiring is more easily turned off (as described above). It's much easier to wake up the neural connections than to build muscles mass from scratch, so don't lose heart when you fall out of your routine. Be gentle with yourself and know that when you get back to your exercise routine, you'll still have a measure of the foundation you built. You'll just need to wake it up.

You may experience a little pain now, but its nothing comparable to when your body is too late to do all the exercise and damaged.

PhysioCall Gladstone is here to help guide you all the way. Whether as a beginner, recovering from injuries or surgeries, getting back after you've stop doing it and a lot more reasons why each one needed to stop. Ankle Strapping Guide

Things To Know About Knee Pain

Things To Know About Knee Pain


Be informed.

Knee pain is the most common musculoskeletal complaint that brings people to their doctor according to WebMD. With today's increasingly active society, the number of knee problems is increasing. Knee pain has a wide variety of specific causes and treatments. (in Chinese medicine) it is an alternative therapeutic method that has been popular in which heated glass cups are applied to the skin along the meridians of the body, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy and has a lot of good benefits. The knee relies on a number of structures including bones, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.

Being active is one of the best things you can do for your joints and the rest of your body. But injuries can happen, and they often involve the knees.
Some of the most common problems are sprained ligaments, meniscus tears, tendinitis, and runner's knee. If you have an old knee injury that wasn’t properly treated, it may flare up now and then or hurt all the time.
Several other things can also cause knee pain, such as:
  • Bursitis
  • Dislocated kneecap
  • IT (iliotibial) band syndrome
  • Meniscal tear
  • Osgood-Schlatter disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome
What Does a Knee Injury Feel Like?
Obviously, it hurts! But the type of pain and where you feel it can vary, depending on what the problem is. You may have:
  • Pain, usually when you bend or straighten the knee (including when you go down stairs)
  • Swelling
  • Trouble putting weight on the knee
  • Problems moving your knee
  • Knee buckling or "locking"

If you have these symptoms, visit PhysioCall Gladstone right away and be treated. You may call 0749620411 for reservations or you may book online @
Home Care for Knee Pain
Please note: Inflammation is the body's physiologic response to an injury. In treating many types of knee pain, a common goal is to break the inflammatory cycle. The inflammatory cycle starts with an injury. After an injury, substances that cause inflammation invade the knee to assist in healing. However, if the injury and subsequent inflammation is not resolved, inflammation can become a chronic issue, leading to further inflammation and additional injury. This cycle of inflammation leads to continued or progressive knee pain. The cycle can be broken by controlling the substances that cause inflammation, and by limiting further injury to tissue.

If you are away or cant go to PhysioCall Gladstone yet, there are common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle, these are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation. This regimen is summarized by the memory device PRICE.

What will happen if you dont treat Knee Pain right away?

For the first 48 to 72 hours after a knee injury, use a cold pack to ease swelling and numb the pain. A plastic bag of ice or frozen peas works well. Use it for 15 to 20 minutes three or four times a day. Wrap your ice pack in a towel to be kind to your skin. After that, you can heat things up with a warm bath, heating pad, or warm towel for 15 to 20 minutes, three or four times a day.
Your knee pain can get worse if you will not have it treated as soon as possible. Visit PhysioCall Gladstone right away. Do not wait for the time that you will need injections, medications or surgeries. A physio treatment is so much affordable than that of medications especially if it already involves lifetime medications or surgery that costs thousands of dollars.

(in Chinese medicine) it is an alternative therapeutic method that has been popular in which heated glass cups are applied to the skin along the meridians of the body, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy and has a lot of good benefits.

The cups may be made of:
  • Glass
  • Bamboo
  • Earthenware
  • Silicone
Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.
Cupping is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass cups or bamboo jars as suction devices that are placed on the skin. There are several ways that a practitioner can create the suction in the cups. One method involves swabbing rubbing alcohol onto the bottom of the cup, then lighting it and putting the cup immediately against the skin.

Don't miss your chance and get your treatment now!

20 Beta Testers Wanted


20 Beta Testers Wanted

People who have been following my health journey on and in the clinic will know I am always problem-solving. 

The problem I am trying to solve right now has to do with PREVENTABLE  stress and chronic inflammatory illnesses. I'm not just talking about diabetes, obesity, cardiac and stroke-related diseases... 

I'm also including the signs and symptoms that humans put up with for years before doing anything about it. 
Symptoms like:
- bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and nausea
- sore joints and muscle pain
- migraines and headaches
- poor breathing, chest pain or rapid heartbeat
- low energy, fatigued or tired
- feeling stressed, anxious or depressed
- poor sleep or insomnia  
- frequent colds or infections 

Specifically, I am interested in identifying food and non food items that cause damage to your body and being exposed to that stress over a long period of time... that could be prevented.

How are you being exposed?
- through the foods you eat (some are hurting you and you don't know it) 
- applying inflammatory items on your skin or hair
- being environmentally exposed to toxins/chemicals at work or home

What are inflammatory food and non-food item?
Anything that your body considers a stress, that might be experienced as a symptom, through allergy, intolerance or sensitivity. 
HINT: Not all inflammatory conditions will present with a symptom (or even be obvious to you at all) until it's caused damage, sometimes permanent irreversible damage.  

Previously to identify if you are suffering from chronic inflammation, you would need to:
-  be so sick that you needed to go to a doctor 
- doctors would run expensive and complex medical tests (sometimes costing $$$ thousands of dollars) 
- the tests are invasive (e.g. blood tests or tissue samples) 


My team and I are partnering with a laboratory testing company to CREATE A BETTER TEST.

A food and non food sensitivity test that is:
- Affordable 
- Safe and easy to do at home
- Non-invasive
- Results that are simple to understand and action

Why create a better test?
We believe that when you are ill, sick and diseased and require medical attention in the form of medication, injection and surgery to address your symptoms, the conversion has been left too late and permanent damage may have already been caused. 

We want people to start having the conversion of STRESS and chronic inflammation with themselves, with their friends and family and their health professional team much earlier. 

We believe through a conscious effort and taking the steps to figure out what causes you stress and inflammation, then you are empowered to do something about it before it becomes a bigger, scarier and more expensive problem. 

If you are interested in testing your sensitivity to food and non-food items we are looking for 20 people to test. 

Here are OUR requirements: 
- You must be willing to do the test at a significantly discounted price 
- That you are interested in sharing your experience and give feedback
- be part of something great

Why YOU would do this test:
- To determine if you have a sensitivity to food and non items that you were NOT aware of
- To start the conversion and become conscious of items that might be causing you to be stressed, sick, ill, injured, and diseased. 
- Prevention is better than a cure
- Take back your health and start your healthcare journey




If you don’t know how to self care, see me in clinic and we can begin the process to get you started.
