JOIN the CAMPAIGN for REAL physios...

*** Looking for treatment for that sports injury?
*** Want to ease your back, neck or joint pain?
*** Need a sports massage?

Whatever your needs, make sure you choose a CHARTERED physiotherapist, a qualified medical professional with years of study in a university hospital behind them.

Don't risk your health with unqualified, or under-qualified "therapists". If they're not chartered, they're not a member of the ISCP, the governing body for physiotherapists in Ireland.

Chartered physiotherapists are registered with VHI, Aviva, Laya and all major health insurers - so there's money back on all treatments!

Is your massage therapist, physical therapist or sports injury therapist "chartered"? Just ask them... or check on this link...

London 2012: “Get Energised Challenge”

The London 2012 Olympics officially get underway in just over 100 days and Electric Ireland, the Team Ireland sponsor, has been marking the occasion with a special "Get Energised Day" at ESB SportsCo.

PhysioNow's chief physiotherapist, Colette O'Flynn joined London 2012 Olympians Peter O'Leary, David Burrows and Deirdre Ryan (pictured) at a special health and fitness training day in Ringsend.

The Electric Ireland “Get Energised Challenge” is a new initiative for people across Ireland to get “energised” through a series of simple tips from Team Ireland athletes to show how we can all put a little more energy back into our lives.

Amongst the crowd at Sportsco this weekend were the winners of a special Electric Ireland  competition, who got the chance to hear professional tips from physios, nutritionists, sports psychologists and fitness experts.

Stay SLIM - With SCIENCE! The FULL list...

Posted by Colette O'Flynn on January 16 2012 @ 01:36

BECAUSE you asked for it...

There's been a huge response to our "Stay Slim With Science" report, which lays out in an easy-to-follow form, the very latest research on losing weight - and keeping it off.

So here they are, some simple, effective rules which should work for everybody, all the time - the best, most modern recommendations for getting in shape, and staying that way...

1:  Don't skip meals
Scientists studying the effects of hunger on the brain have found that subjects who miss meals suffer cravings for high calorie, high fat food.  Hunger, it seems, encourages the brain to guide us towards calorie laden food - that's why you scoff pastries mid-morning...

2:  Eat a good breakfast
Eating a protein rich breakfast - eggs and fish in particular - keeps you satisfied for longer, because it triggers the release of chemicals that tell the brain you are full.

3:  Eat off smaller plates
It sounds ridiculous, but it works.  Using smaller plates automatically encourages us all to eat smaller portions.  And, no matter what mammy told you, you don't have to clear your plate!

4:  Don't cheat on the calories
If you're going to count calories, do it properly.  Keep a food diary, and record EVERYTHING you eat, including every snack and calorie laden sauce. You'll be surprised at how much you snack, and you can start to weed out the sneaky calories. People generally under-report their intake by 40 to 60%. 

5:  Eat more soup
Soup fills you up for longer.  In a recent BBC study, two groups of soldiers were served the same lunch - chicken, rice and vegetables with a glass of water.  One group, however, ate the solid food, while the other soldiers had their food liquidised and served as a soup. Ultrasound scans showed the soup stayed in the stomach longer, and kept the souped-up soldiers feeling full. 

6:  Minimise choice
Our bodies are hardwired by evolution to seek out variety in food.  It's in our nature to want lots of different things.  So keep away from the buffet - where you're likely to eat as much as 30% more.  And only buy what you need.  Studies show that when people are offered two bowls of free sweets - one bowl all purple, the other multi-coloured - that they tend strongly to pick the multi-coloured sweets, and eat much more of them.

7:  Enjoy low fat dairy products
Eating low-fat dairy products helps the body to excrete more fat.  Dairy calcium binds with fat in the small intestine and then passes through without being absorbed and stored as fat. Skimmed milk, low-fat yoghurt, cottage cheese and fromage frais all help to carry fat away from the gut.

8:  Feel The Burn
Exercise.  The calorie 'burn' from exercise doesn't stop when you get off the treadmill, the pitch or the bike - it carries on well into the next day.  In fact, you'll burn more calories in the hours after you exercise than you will during the exercise itself.  That's because the human body accesses carbohydrates easily during exercise, but has to use stored body fat to run itself in the following hours.  

9:  Move!
Run, walk, dance - just move your body, in any way you can.  Even little bursts of exercise - taking the stairs, getting off the bus a stop early, walking around as you use the phone - it all adds up.  Building small amounts of 'activity' into daily routine increases heart rate and calorie expenditure.
