This week’s article of the week is titled: Should women with incontinence and prolapse do abdominal curls?
There is currently a lack of consensus as the type of activity restrictions that may be necessary in women with pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence. It is proposed that an increase in intra-abdominal pressure caused by high-intensity activities may contribute to symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction. This paper looked into the changes in intra-abdominal pressure during abdominal curl and cough. It concluded that due to the large variability in intra-abdominal pressure generated during abdominal curls and cough suggests some of the current recommendations may be unnecessarily restrictive in some women but important for others. It also highlights the importance of individualizing programs.

Spots are filling fast and if you are interested please do not hesitate to contact reception on (07) 4638 3777. It is a great way to get a feel for the program and provide us with feedback on how to make it even better!Adapted Physical Activity Exercise Program
Vision is proud to launch the Adapted Physical Activity (APA) program which has been created to provide an opportunity for movement and exercise support for children with an impairment or delay or a child that finds it difficult to exercise or play sport with their peers. The APA program provides a group movement opportunity, delivered by accredited exercise physiologists, to assist in fine & gross motor skills development, coordination, functional capacity and movement confidence by utilising game-based exercises. Where many of the current movement opportunities are individually orientated and isolated tasks that rely heavily on autonomy to achieve progress, the APA program creates a fun environment for children to participate which assists developmental and health parameters simultaneously. The program comprises of up to two 40 minute sessions each week for 10 weeks operating in the school term and is targeted at children between ages 3 and 15 years. Vision is looking at running a pilot version of this program in the coming weeks and looking for expressions of interest for participation. Please contact our reception team for more information on this exciting opportunity (07) 46 383 777. ... See MoreSee Less
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
On this day, when we honour those who have fought for our country and our freedom, it’s hard to find the words to express just what they have given each and every one of us.
Remembrance Day isn’t just about war and those we’ve lost, but about ideals and what we stand for. It’s about respecting our past and looking hopefully forward, and more than anything, thanking those who have served.
