Yesterday was the last day of the Olympic and Paralympic London 2012 games and today there was a final celebration and parade in London. All Games makers were asked to wear their uniform for a final time. So I thought I would wear mine to work!!!

Game Ready – now available to rent for home use

This treatment modality has proved very popular amongst a wide cross section of our patients so we now have a second unit available for our patients to rent to assist in their recovery and speed up their rehabilitation process. The home use of Game Ready has been very successful in the USA and the UK for professional athletes, everyday athletes as well as post-op orthopedic patients. 

Lindsay Bridgeman and Lindsey Macfee from Cayman Physiotherapy Ltd. recently volunteered their time at the Legends tennis tournament held at the Ritz Carlton, Grand Cayman. They were lucky enough to be able to leave the players treatment tent to watch some of the tennis and they even had the added bonus of meeting Stephan Egbert and his family in the VIP tent. It’s a tough life as a physio volunteer!

Cayman Physio was proud to be a bronze sponsor of the Women’s World Open Squash 2012 held in the Cayman islands in December. Our team was out in full force providing physio coverage and sports massage for the competitors in the early rounds at the South Sound Squash Club. Cayman Physio also provided coverage every evening at Camana Bay for the final rounds. It was a wonderful week of world class squash in a fantastic setting.

  • Increased flexibility and joint range of motion: Flexible muscles can improve your daily performance. Tasks such as lifting packages, bending to tie your shoes or hurrying to catch a bus become easier and less tiring. Flexibility tends to diminish as you get older, but you can regain and maintain it.
  • Improved circulation: Stretching increases blood flow to your muscles. Blood flowing to your muscles brings nourishment and gets rid of waste byproducts in the muscle tissue. Improved circulation can help shorten your recovery time if you've had any muscle injuries.
  • Better posture: Frequent stretching can help keep your muscles from getting tight, allowing you to maintain proper posture. Good posture can minimize discomfort and keep aches and pains at a minimum.
  • Stress relief: Stretching relaxes tight, tense muscles that often accompany stress.
  • Enhanced coordination: Maintaining the full range-of-motion through your joints keeps you in better balance. Coordination and balance will help keep you mobile and less prone to injury from falls, especially as you get older.
