Is Your Headache Coming From Your Neck?
You might be surprised to learn that an estimated 15-20% of headaches actually come from the neck, and not from the head.  Leading Physiotherapist Aaron Hardaker shares some information you need to know about getting some relief from these types of headaches.

A neck headache (formally called a cervicogenic headache) results when your nerve system gets a bit confused.  The upper 3 cervical spinal nerves share the same pathway to the brain as the nerve that carries messages from your face to your brain.  So sometimes the pain in your neck is misunderstood and the brain “feels” as though the pain is coming from the head.

How Do You Treat Neck Headache?
The really good news about neck headache is that relief is often immediate, once diagnosed and treated. The precise treatment will depend upon the source of the problem.  Stiff neck joints may need to be loosened using a gentle joint mobilisation techniques.  Hypermobile (or unstable) joints may require deep neck muscle strengthening exercises to stabilise and limit joint movement.  Stretching, massage or acupuncture may be used to relax tight or over active muscles and weak muscles may require specific strengthening exercises.

Your physiotherapist will work with you to determine a program of stretches, massage, joint mobilisation and exercise that will alleviate the problem with your neck… and ultimately will relieve the pain in your head.

If you suspect that you might be suffering from a neck headache then book a FREE Physio Assessment with one of Mid North Coast Physio’s professional physiotherapists.  Find out if they can help without spending a cent.  Call 1300273747 to secure an appointment in Woolgoolga, Moonee, Toormina or Urunga.

Happy 10th Birthday to Mid North Coast Physio!
From very humble beginnings, Mid North Coast Physiotherapy has grown to be one of the leading healthcare providers in the region.  We caught up with director Aaron Hardaker to hear about how they’ve made it 10 years and what’s in store to celebrate.

How did Mid North Coast Physio start out?
We started in a small rented room in Woolgoolga but quickly grew with the support of new clients and referrals from local doctors, leading to a new location and expanded days and hours.  From there, we expanded to Urunga to meet a similar need, before adding two more clinics in recent years in collaboration with Coffs Coast Health Club at Toormina and Moonee Beach.  We changed names from Northern Beaches Physio and Urunga Physio a couple of years ago to be more reflective of the reach of the businesses across the region, Mid North Coast Physio seemed to be much more appropriate.

Why do you see the 10th birthday as an important milestone?
More than anything, I think it shows we’re doing good things with helping clients achieve their goals.  If we weren’t, we certainly wouldn’t have lasted this long, let alone grown significantly over this period.  I’m really proud of the fact we’ve been able to help over 6000 people so far achieve better health, improved quality of life, less pain and more happiness – that’s why we turn up every day!

How can we join in the birthday celebrations?
We’ve decided to do things a little different to celebrate this birthday.  Instead of receiving gifts or having a big party, we’re going to giving some gifts.  Because we love what we do, we want you to come in and experience it firsthand. The first 20 people who call and wish us a happy birthday can choose to have either a 60min massage for the price of 30 mins, a FREE computerised Gaitscan foot assessment OR $20 off an Initial Physio consultation.

All you need to do is decide which special gift is best for you, give us a call on 1300 273747 and wish us a happy birthday to secure your appointment.  We may even come up with something extra special for anyone who is willing to sing Happy Birthday!

Bring a towel, water and your determination. Register here  by selecting Sunday 21st May & we’ll see you there for a very unique exercising experience…

Exploding The Myths About Diets and Nutrition – HELP IS HERE!
For many of us, between what you hear on television and the nutrition “advice” flooding social media, deciding what is healthy can be really confusing.  The best way to filter fact from fiction is to hear it from an expert in the field.  Who better to do that than our very own Katie Drury, an Accredited Practising Dietitian.

Why should we choose you as our Dietitian Katie? 
Firstly, because I enjoy all things food – eating food, talking about food, cooking (especially baking) and experimenting with new foods. It was my love of food, along with my desire to work in the health profession that led me to make the move from my small, country town on the Lower Mid North Coast to Newcastle to study Nutrition and Dietetics. I am also an advocate of all foods in moderation (you can’t have a birthday with no cake!) and am passionate about providing realistic advice that will lead to a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable in the long-term.   Thanks to my background in competitive sport I have developed a strong interest in the area of sports nutrition to improve performance and give athletes the edge.  You can also receive education on how to shop, cooking techniques, meal ideas and delicious recipes. You will be provided with credible sources of nutrition information and bust through any myths around health, lifestyle and diet.

Thanks Katie.  Mid North Coast Physio are offering 5 FREE assessments with Katie to help you reach your health goals and discover a happier, healthier version of you.  Call 1300273747 NOW to secure your FREE assessment before they are gone.  Isn’t it time you started feeling great again?

The Secret To Pain Free Living May Be Happy Feet!
Are you frustrated by ongoing foot, knee, hip or back pain? Do you feel like you’re in the dark about what the cause of the problem is? Mid North Coast Physio continues to utilise state of the art technology in healthcare across both our clubs and can help you find the answers others miss.  By using computerised foot scanning with the Gaitscan system, along with a thorough physical assessment, their team can solve your ongoing pain for good rather than just short term quick fixes.

What is Gaitscan? 
Gaitscan is a computerised foot scanning system that is used at Mid North Coast Physio to get very detailed analysis of your foot and lower limb movement and load.  The problem with just watching you walk, or even videoing the movement, is that you aren’t able to measure the impact on the joints or where the impact occurs.  Also, on average the foot is only in contact with the ground for about 0.7sec with each step, so using state of the art technology allows much better assessment of what is going wrong is a very short space of time.

How can I get a FREE Gaitscan computer foot assessment?
As a special offer for Coffs Coast Health Club members we are offering a FREE Gaitscan computerised foot assessment to the first 10 callers on 1300 27 37 47.  And as an extra bonus, if you require custom made orthotics you will get $50 off your orthotics purchase.  This is strictly limited offer so call now to book and find out how to get rid of your pain for good.

It’s Time To Get Back In To Your Favourite Classes
Our Group Exercise & Kids Club Teams have recharged & are ready to help you kick start your New Years Resolutions from Tuesday 3rd January.As kids, we loved to get together to play with our friends. As teenagers, our world revolved around our friends; often times our friends dictated our choice of activities. As adults, we still enjoy being active with friends, but don’t always feel like we have the time or opportunity to do so. Group exercise provides us with that opportunity to feel young again and be physically active with others.

Come & join in the fun in 2017 & take your results & enjoyment to the next level. Allow the enthusiasm and energy of the group to help you fuel your workout!

Please remember to book kids club at least the day before as we tend to get very busy during school holidays. Call the Toormina team on 6658 6222 or Call the Moonee team on 6653 6122.

REVEALED: Top Tips to Avoid The Christmas Bulge!
On average, Australians gain 0.8 – 1.5kg over Christmas time; and it’s not often easy to shift the excess weight once the New Year rolls around. So, what can you do to beat the Christmas bulge? Mid North Coast Physio’s Accredited Dietitian Katie Drury reveals her tips to eat healthy while still enjoying the Christmas festivities.What are some strategies that can be used to make Christmas eating healthier?
1. Don’t skip breakfast: Instead, opt for a filling and healthy breakfast to start the day off on the right food, and avoid over-eating when it gets to lunch and dinner time. For example, eggs on wholegrain toast, a wholegrain cereal, such as Weetbix with low-fat milk or fruit and yoghurt.
2. Stick to healthy plate portions: aim to have half your plate filled with non-starchy vegetables or salad vegetables (i.e. everything but potato, sweet potato and corn).
3. Avoid Boxing Day over-eating by freezing leftovers on Christmas Day in individual portions that can be defrosted when required.
4. Take time to appreciate the foods you are eating; put your fork down between bites and take notice of the flavour and texture of foods when you are eating.
5. Drinking alcohol can add to the merriment of the festive season, but you don’t need to drink in excess to be the life of the party. Aim to have at least two alcohol free days per week, and try not to have more than 2 alcoholic drinks per day.
6. Keep up your exercise over the holidays! Ask for a gym membership for Christmas and get outside on Christmas Day with the family for a game of backyard cricket or touch football between courses.

If you would like to find out more about how a Dietitian can help you, call 1300273747 to request a FREE pre-assessment appointment with Katie.  These appointments are strictly limited so call now to ensure you avoid the extra kilos this Christmas.

You Ask and We Deliver!

We love hearing your feedback, listening to your fabulous ideas and getting your requests.  In answer to many of your requests Santa has come early at Coffs Coast Health Club! 

You will be excited to know that we have just installed a massive air conditioning unit in the group exercise studio at Moonee.  The room is a bit smaller & doesn’t have the natural airflow of Toormina’s main studio, so this has been the number one request from Moonee since last Summer.  The feedback so far has been very positive, so it might be time for you to head on in and see what all the fuss is about.

In the last two weeks we have also purchased new kettlebells, slam balls, aerobic steps, tricep ropes, an olympic swiss bar and resistance bands. We have also ordered a couple of free wheel bikes as an extra warm up or circuit class option for both clubs.

A common request from our 50+ classes has been a circuit timer with variable timings and a large display, so we have just received one each for the Main Studio at Toormina and one is in the Studio at Moonee. Enjoy!

Do you know someone over the age of 65 who is at risk of having a fall? 9a4d3bd0-14ad-4add-9e5c-a7e5472a6ba5

Recent research has outlined the major health impacts falls are having on our older community members, ranging from broken bones and lost independence to life threatening injuries and untimely death. Mid North Coast Physio & Coffs Coast Health Club, the team are passionate about helping you reduce and prevent falls before they occur.  To do this they are making the Stepping On Program available to the Coffs Coast community, with a program starting soon in Coffs Harbour.

How does Stepping On work?
Stepping On is a community-based workshop designed for people over 65, offered once a week for seven weeks that builds your confidence in your own ability to reduce falls through education and gentle balance and strengthening exercises. In a small group setting, you will learn specific knowledge and skills to prevent falls, all run by our Occupational Therapist Natalie Webster. We use expert guest presenters such as Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists, Pharmacists, Council Safety Officers and Vision Experts to share knowledge on a range of topics, including vision, home hazards, medicines and practical exercises to improve strength and balance.

And the best news is – Stepping On is FREE.  It’s a government funded program with no cost to participants.  If you or someone you love could benefit from being a part of an upcoming program in Moonee, Toormina or Woolgoolga, please call our Mid North Coast Physio team on 1300 273747 to register your interest.

Why Some People Can Eat More Carbs than Others

October 23, 2016

The concept that carbs are evil can be put to bed with one statement:

All vegetables and fruits are carbohydrates.

So it should come as no surprise that any diet attempting to completely purge carbohydrates—or anyone suggesting all carbs are evil—needs to take a step back, cut out the dogma, and take a hard look at reality and personal preference.

Few popular diets ever suggest you eat more carbs. Why is it they get such a bad reputation? There’s a huge gap between understanding foods that have healthy qualities (think micronutrients like vitamins and minerals) and foods that play a part in weight loss. While foods are digested differently, almost any food can be part of a weight-loss plan.

It’s why we’ve seen esteemed scientists eat a diet primarily of Twinkies to prove how dropping pounds can be turned into a mathematical equation.

That’s not an invitation to begin an all-snack-food diet. Instead, it’s context to finding the balance between eating foods you enjoy—like rice or potatoes—instead of having to follow a bland, frustrating diet that you inevitably abandon out of frustration and extreme hangriness. [Hangry (noun): that feeling of hungry that drives you to extreme levels of anger and/or becoming whiny.]

So let’s stop with the nonsense. Not all carbs are bad. At the same time, certain types of carbs can make it harder for you to look and feel the way you want, especially when you factor in your exercise behaviors.

Carb Resistance: It’s Real (and Imagined)

The biggest carbohydrate threat is to those with the “my body hates carbs” gene. These people appear allergic to carbs because, well, they are. Gluten sensitivity, food allergies, and inflammation make foods such as grains and bread a common enemy.

Even if you don’t suffer from any of those problems, you might find that when you eat more carbs, you feel bloated and fat—especially when those carbs come from sugar, candy, or lots of processed crap. (Think of foods that are manufactured and don’t have the best nutritional profile… instant mac and cheese, anyone?)

At the same time, the overreaction to carbs is oftentimes a by-product of a poorly designed diet.

Here’s what happens to most dieters:
Step 1: They “determine” carbs are bad.
Step 2: They remove all carbs.
Step 3: Weight loss occurs within the first one-to-two weeks. Sometimes quite a bit. But fat loss is not a rapid process. (Although it can be for people with lots to lose, like 50 to 100 pounds.) So what’s happening? Your body is dropping water weight because carbs hold water (but not necessarily in a bad way).
Step 4: Hunger and frustration builds, focus drops, and energy levels suffer. Eventually, you return to eating carbs after a period (usually about two weeks) of withdrawal. What happens? You might feel bloated, sick, and even see the scale dramatically shift.

The process plays out repeatedly, so let’s pump the breaks and solve the carb-sensitivity issue. When you reintroduce carbs after a no-carb period, many things happen in your body. At the most basic level, you’re replenishing your depleted carb stores and gaining back the water weight. The end result is thinking, “See, carbs are bad!” Which inevitably begins an ongoing struggle of figuring out what you can eat without being miserable.

What does it all mean? A dogmatic, black-and-white approach to carbs is hurting your understanding of what you can and can’t eat.

The Unfair Truth: Lean People Can Eat More Carbs

How many carbs you can eat and what you can tolerate is based on your body. It’s not a sexy answer, but it’s the truth.

You can’t assume that high-carb diets are bad just as you can’t assume that high-protein or high-fat diets are bad. Different types of diets work for different types of people. Part of it is how your body responds and another aspect is less physiological and more psychological. The physiological nature is oftentimes controlled by insulin, which, at the most basic level, is a storage hormone.

In general, the less body fat you carry, the better your insulin sensitivity, which means you can eat more carbs. (Your body doesn’t react as aggressively to larger amounts of carbohydrates, often viewed as surging blood sugar.) While insulin is important for weight loss and overall health, it’s not a black-and-white situation.

You can’t assume that high-carb diets are bad just as you can’t assume that high-protein or high-fat diets are bad. Different types of diets work for different types of people.

If you are more insulin resistant, it doesn’t mean you can’t lose weight, but it does have a big impact on the type of diet you should follow. If you’re more insulin sensitive (typically lower body fat), your body will respond better to a higher-carbohydrate diet. If you’re less sensitive (more resistant), then it can often feel like more carbs will go straight to your gut or your as*. And most of the time, it’s not just in your head.

Unfortunately, determining insulin levels isn’t an easy process and requires blood work, but you can see how your body reacts to higher-carb meals. The simplest test (although far from perfect) is consuming carbs in a post-workout period. Do you feel great or do you feel miserable and more bloated? If it’s the latter, either your insulin sensitivity isn’t great or you just ate too much.

more balanced (and successful) approach is to select a diet and then measure fat loss every two-to-four weeks (but not more frequently). Remember: Fat loss isn’t magic. If you think your insulin sensitivity is good, then you can start with about 50 percent of your diet from carbohydrates. If you’re not confident and worried you’re resistant—or know you have a lot of weight to lose—begin with about 20 to 30 percent of your calories from carbs.

Don’t Forget About Personality

The Paleo diet works for many people, but it’s not magic. Rather, removing carbs often means you’re eating fewer calories per day and focusing on a diet that consists of animal proteins, vegetables, and fruits. That’s definitely a recipe for success but not what is required to drop pounds. Not to mention, if you eat unlimited amounts of anything (even if it’s natural), you will gain weight.

The bigger issue with a no-carb approach is if it doesn’t consider the foods you love. Removing certain foods is one way to structure an eating plan. But if complete withdrawal pushes aggressively against personal preference, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Research has even shown that having dessert can help with weight loss. Case in point: Put a pasta lover on a Paleo diet and prepare for pain.

We want a flashy one-size-fits-all solution, but I’ve seen enough different diets work for different types of people to know that a broad generalization is not the solution. It’s actually the foundation of the problem. So we need to stop with the scare tactics and suggestions that might create imbalanced diets and do more harm than good.

How Do You Know Carbs Aren’t Really Bad?

There are many things in life we can’t explain with science. Or many things that science has yet to prove. (Or may never prove due to lack of funding, lack of interest, or just crappy studies. Hey, it happens.

However, when science does uncover some truths, it’s important they’re not ignored. In the case of carbs, insisting that “all carbs are bad” isn’t a fair conclusion that can be applied to everyone. (Side note: If you’re trying to build muscle, removing all carbs is potentially going to make the process harder too.)

“The idea that carbs are the enemy is a common appeal to emotion and popular folklore, rather than the full range of scientific evidence,” says Alan Aragon, M.S., a nutritionist in Westlake Village, CA.

The best example is this meta-analysis that compared the effects of low-carbohydrate diets and low-fat diets. Here’s what the researchers found:

1. Low-fat diets were slightly more effective at lowering total cholesterol and LDL.
2. Low-carb diets were more effective at increasing HDL and decreasing triglycerides
3. Neither diet was more effective than the other at reducing body weight, waist girth, blood pressure, glucose, and insulin levels.

This overall lack of differential effects led the authors to conclude that both low-carb and low-fat diets are viable options for reducing weight and improving metabolic risk factors, Aragon says. One of the strengths of this analysis was its large sample size: It included 23 trials from multiple countries and a total of 2,788 participants. Meaning this isn’t one small snippet of truth.

What’s more, the cuisines of some of the healthiest populations in the world consist of diets that have heavy carbohydrate components. The best examples are the Blue Zones, known as “longevity hotspots that have the longest life expectancies and the lowest rates of chronic and degenerative diseases,” Aragon says. The main energy sources for all of these Blue Zones are carbohydrates. Need more evidence? The top 10 countries in the world with the lowest obesity rates all consume a carb-dominant diet.

So where does that leave you? Are you supposed to assume that a high-carb diet only makes Americans fat? No, but we can use that to better understand and guide our eating habits.

Let’s face it: We can’t discount that low-carb diets have been found to be a very healthy way of eating. There’s plenty of research that indicates lower-carb diets do everything from helping with weight loss to building bodies designed to fight off disease. In fact, unless trying to build muscle, I typically follow a lower-carb approach. (Notice I said “lower-carb” instead of “no-carb,” because lower can mean 100 to 200 grams per day.) The more important message—and the one that will influence how you eat—is developing an understanding that while carbs are not all bad, they’re not all good either.

A Practical Approach to Eating Carbs

“Saying carbs are OK does not mean you should shovel in bucket-loads of refined flour foods and chase them down with gallons of soda,” Aragon says. Instead, be smart about where the majority of your carbs come from. It’s always best to create a diet that’s filled with whole and minimally refined foods. Eat more healthy foods (proteins, vegetables, fruits) and less of the stuff you know tastes good but has limited nutritional value (candy, soda, sugar-loaded foods, and boatloads of pasta).

Finding the right diet for you can take some work, but it’s important to remember that it can include carbs. A healthy diet can even include some of the carbs you might not consider healthy—whether bread, grains, and rice, or some sugary dessert every now and then.

The main point is to make the majority of your diet, say 80 to 90 percent, come from the good stuff, and keep the minority to the bad. (Or avoid it altogether, if that’s your preference or you know that a small taste might open the gateways to a binging episode.)

Some people will thrive on more carbs, while others will suffer. Your best bet is to play around with food options that are both healthy and work for you. This is the “sustainability diet,” and while it’s not really a diet (or all that exciting), it is the best approach to dietary success.

Take it from one of the best nutritionists in the world: “Your carb intake should be individualized according to your personal preference, tolerance, and athletic and aesthetic goals,” Aragon says. Experiment and be patient. Find the right balance for your body and let that become the truth when it comes to your dietary stance on carbs and the message we need to spread.
