COMING THIS FALL TO PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR HEALTH
Our first round of bootcamp classes was a great success with many of the ladies seeing positive results! They sweated their way through dynamic stretches, high intensity circuits and exercises targeting the abdominals. We were able to do many of these outdoors in our new backyard. Thanks to everyone who participated, and watch for more classes this fall!

Spring Boot Camp ---->
A year has passed since our last newsletter and we have lots of exciting changes in the office to write about. 2013 started off with a move to our new location in Nottawa on January 28 and we are enjoying our brighter and larger space. A big thank-you to Rick Koen and his crew who got us into our new home on time. We share the building with Dr. Lorna MacDougall who previously had a family practice in Creemore. You will find new faces at the front desk from last year– Cathy is staying on board with our newest member, Deanna.
With the increase in space, we are planning to implement various group programs this year. This month we are starting BOOT CAMP and are offering 8 sessions twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30-6:30 pm at a cost of $40. We plan to offer a series of these 4 week classes. If you are having trouble finding the right type of exercise to get you started, this could be what you’re looking for. The classes will be fun and you can challenge yourself over the 4 weeks. If Mother Nature cooperates we will be moving into the backyard. We would love to see you there!

Combined Decongestive Therapy
Lymphedema is swelling of a body part, most often an arm or a leg, caused by the abnormal
accumulation of lymph fluid, most likely from a blocked or damaged route through the lymph
system. It can also occur in the face, neck, chest, breast, abdomen, groin and lung. Unlike
other oedemas, lymphedema leads to changes in the tissues, such as fibrosis and an increased risk of infection. The swelling can then become even more difficult to control."
