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...
