Refer A Friend Programme

From March 2013, we are rolling out a new initiative that will reward you for recommending our services to people you know. If you send a friend or family member to BodyFit, we’ll show our appreciation with a voucher for a FREE 30-minute massage!
It’s our way of saying thanks to our loyal clients who are spreading the good word about BodyFit Physiotherapy.

When you send a friend for treatment, just tell them to mention your name, so we can send you the Massage Voucher. If you’ve moved recently, it may also be a good idea to update your address with us, as we’ll send the voucher via snail mail.

Introducing Personal Guarantee

Starting from February 2013 we are announcing a new initiative to give you complete peace of mind about your physiotherapy care.

We pride ourselves on delivering top-level health service – always focussing on you and working hard to achieve the best result possible for you.

What we are offering you is a full refund and the following treatment completely FREE of charge if you are not happy for any reason with the physiotherapy services you received during your initial visit. This will eliminate the financial risk of  seeing a health professional. Now, this is our guarantee to YOU that you will be fully satisfied with the treatment and professional care you receive at BodyFit Physiotherapy.

It would be unrealistic for us to promise to every new patient that we will make them completely pain-free in one session. However, what we do promise is that you will be satisfied with the level of service and professional health care you receive from our physiotherapists. Therefore, if you are not completely satisfied with your initial consultation, please let us know as soon as possible.
When you are injured, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your health provider will be up for the task.

Tennis Elbow: What is it? And how to make it go away?

Most people have either heard of tennis elbow or even experienced this debilitating condition themselves. In this article I just wanted to do a quick overview of what this condition actually is, what causes it and what are the best ways to treat it. It is known under different names such as lateral epicondylitis, elbow tendinosis and extensor tendinopathy. This is an overuse, degenerative condition of the tendon on the outside of the elbow caused by excessive quick, monotonous, repetitive contractions and gripping activities of the wrist. It occurs in about 1-3% of people, however it is more common in people between the ages of 30 and 60. It is as common in men as it is in women. There is usually reduced grip strength and pain in the elbow area. The symptoms can last for up to 2 years. To date, there is no proven single ideal treatment for tennis elbow.
A number of various treatment techniques are employed by physiotherapists and other health professionals to treat pain associated with tennis elbow. By far the most effective way of physiotherapy treatment is physical exercise involving strengthening and stretching exercises. Of all possible therapies for tennis elbow exercise has the most clinical evidence and proof of being effective. You are able to find a video demonstration of this type of physiotherapy exercise programme by clicking on the video link below.

Physiotherapy Tennis Elbow Eccentric Strength Exercises

Please note that if you are suffering from elbow pain, it is essential to see a health professional first to confirm the diagnosis of tennis elbow before commencing these exercises. Apart from exercise, acupuncture and manipulation can help to relieve pain over a short period of time. However, these treatment methods don’t seem to be significantly effective in the long run (beyond 6 weeks from the date of treatment). Both acupuncture and manipulation can be used in physiotherapy to make exercising more comfortable, thus maximising the benefit of strengthening.
One of the most important factors influencing recovery is avoidance of aggravating activities such as lifting, grasping, playing racquet sports or any other movements that produce pain in the elbow. In the case of tennis, badminton or squash it often helps to adjust the grip size of the racquet handle (i.e. increasing the diameter of the handle may help to alleviate some of the symptoms triggered by playing these sports). Unfortunately for a number of people suffering from tennis elbow their occupational activities may involve some of these aggravating movements. It is therefore crucial to modify these activities aiming to minimise or eliminate pain. In cases when this is not possible or when the pain persists, we recommend using tennis elbow braces (click here to see what it looks like) that you can use around the elbow. This helps to take some strain off the troublesome area and avoid re-aggravations.
