What do you need to know about it?
'Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that makes it difficult for people to control their muscles. It can cause abnormal twisting or positions in part(s) of the body along with muscle spasms and/or tremors. In some people the postures may be fixed or locked in position and in others they can appear from time to time.

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in men in Australia and the third most common cause of cancer deaths.

According to statistics, it was estimated that 18,110 new cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed in Australia in 2021. This means one in 6 men is diagnosed with prostate cancer by the age of 85.

So we encourage everyone at risk to keep on attending your regular check-ups. Remember, prevention is always better than cure.

Here's a fun fact:

What makes ice such an effective skincare treatment is that it reduces inflammation, redness, and helps tighten the skin.

Using ice is also effective in reducing pain and swelling because the cold constricts blood vessels and decreases circulation to the area.

For example, if an athlete rolls an ankle in a volleyball match, an immediate application of ice will cut down on long-term swelling and potentially lessen recovery time.

PLUS it helps give us a good night sleep when stressed out!

But ice can't fix anything serious so it is still best to get checked!

Let's deflate another health myth!

Myth says bloating is only caused by what we eat.

The truth? Food intolerances, stress, wearing tight clothes all day, and lack of movement are common contributors – as well as HOW we eat. And sometimes, bloating is just another symptom of an underlying condition!

So really, feeling and being bloated is not just about eating the wrong food.

Do you always feel bloated? Talk to your GP about it now and check if there are other risks!

See you around!
