New physio offers more

WHEN the team at CQ Physio saw a need to offer more than just physiotherapy to Rockhampton, they acted quickly.

Responding to demand they have now opened in a new premises with more proactive health care in the one spot than the city has seen before.

CQ Physio partner and physiotherapist Julie McCormack believes in being able to help everyone reach their ultimate physical potential.

She said the new services they offered had not been readily available in Rockhampton until now.

Mrs McCormack said clinical Pilates in particular had really taken off in the past few months.

“It’s been a big hit and I’ve seen some amazing research for it,” she said.

“It’s not just about going to a gym, it’s doing a proper assessment to cater to you.”

Mrs McCormack, who has four years experience, said anyone could do clinical Pilates, from the elderly to pregnant women to post-operative patients.

And the benefits were amazing, from reducing back and neck pain to helping with pregnancies to increased flexibility.

At the new Kent Street premises CQ Physio also offered a gym, podiatry, dietitian, massage, pre and post-natal advice and even a Wii Fit.

Mrs McCormack said the key to a healthy life was to stay active, look after your body and do things you enjoyed.

She also said not to ignore your aches and pains.

On Monday CQ Physio celebrated its official opening with other partners Ben McGuire, Jim Griggs and Bernadette Barnes, as well as many local businesses.

Member for Capricornia Kirstin Livermore officially opened the centre and to add a bit of humour promised always to follow their expert advice.

Glen Hansen, owner of new local personal training business Roving Fitness, has also joined forces with CQ Physio.

He moved to Rockhampton six months ago and has big plans to help everyone to reach their physical fitness goals.
