Hi all! It’s Rosie, the osteopath at tonika health, writing to you today about winter exercise. I hope you’re all well and keeping warm in this ever unpredictable weather! I’ve been hearing two things from a large bulk of my clients recently, and they relate to movement during winter...

'tis Rosie, tonika health's one and only osteopath! I don’t usually watch TV, but when I do…I watch the Kardashians or nerdy documentaries. There's usually no in between. However, I wanted to share with you something else I saw that interested me (and I promise it has nothing to do with Kimmy K). The show 'The Doctor who Gave up Drugs' was on one night, and I happened to flick over to see the experiment they were performing. Spoiler alert if you were hoping to watch series 1 episode 2...

  Hi all, Rosie the osteopath here. I hope to find you all well! This week I wanted to highlight the importance of listening to your body - something that we all know we should do, yet something that so many of us struggle with. I've had several patients recently with certain injuries that I’ve instructed need REST, then slowly easing back into exercise. Now, some people love it when I tell them they can’t go to the gym, which in this scenario is sooo much easier! However, it’s my hyperactive energy...

Hello all, Rosie the osteopath here! Today I'm coming to you with a motivation booster about chronic pain. As a practitioner, I really WISH I could give all you fabulous patients a magic pill that would get rid of everyone's aches and pains...

Hello all, it's Rosie the osteopath. I want to take the time to share some new information on ice and heat for injuries and inflammation! Okay, its not NEW but it’s not information that has been well circulated and old habits still reign. I’m about to summarise A LOT of content about how to use ice and heat for injuries and inflammation, so chunks will be missing but pleeease feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.   Bring on the Chillsss Ice slows down the movement of blood and...

Good morning everyone! Rosie, the Surry Hills osteopath, here! I hope you’re all having a delightful day. Above all, one of the most common questions I'm asked (which hurts my heart a little every time) is...

Hi all,  it's your resident osteopath, Rosie! I thought I'd put together a list of some handy hints on correct posture to help ensure you're standing properly. As an amazingly talented colleague of mine once said, posture isn't the problem, it's the answer! 1. Stand as tall as you can You should feel your abdominal muscles activate a bit when you do this. If not, do book in..! 2. Roll your shoulders First roll them forward, then up, back and then down. This will position them further back, in their proper anatomical position. 3. Level your pelvis! Most of us...

The squat is becoming increasingly popular in the fitness world, and rightly so. It's such an important movement for the human body to be able to perform and you'd be surprised at the number of people who can't perform a squat AT ALL, let alone with the proper squat technique. Research documents that the action of a squat activates around 200 muscles, including obviously the lower limbs, but also hip rotators and core muscles, which help in stabilisation. The squat is an essential movement to keep the pelvic floor active and...
