There have been some exciting changes at Tin Can Bay Physiotherapy. The addition of a function and strength gym late last year complements the all-round health focus of the centre.

Sue Bennett, along with Gympie trainers Cameron and Jemma, are channelling the motto of “You can do this!” One exercise is the Dead Lift that uses weightlifting to teach correct squatting techniques while building muscle mass.

“Adults bend instead of using the knees so the Dead Lift is a great way to retrain the brain to squat properly,” Sue explained.

Classes are every Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8am and 9am and sessions cater for all ages and abilities. If you have never been to a work-out class before there is a Thursday afternoon session for beginners to get familiar with the equipment.

For those seeking pain relief or resolution of injury then book a session with new physiotherapist Chris Malouf. His motto is “Don’t put up with it!” so if you have any muscle, skeletal and neurological issues; whether minor or chronic, come have an assessment.

Sports injuries, spinal care, joint problems, acupuncture and rehabilitation are Chris’s speciality.

Chris really enjoys helping others heal, achieving good success rates through his realistic planning and caring approach. Chris reminds everyone, “You don’t need a referral for an appointment and we liaise with your doctor and specialists.”

To get a kick start on the new you, contact the team at Tin Can Bay Physiotherapy on 5488 0533 or pop in to 76 Gympie Rd, Tin Can Bay or 1/54 Rainbow Beach Road, Rainbow Beach and make an appointment.
