04 Sep STEPtember 2020
Well good evening good morning or g'day to everyone in my clinic community. This is for both for Mt Gambier and for our Goodwood community.
We are at the beginning of September and technically we're at the beginning of Spring; thank goodness it is good to come out of the dark and the cold even though it's still a bit nippy. So traditionally this time of year people start to come out of the woodwork and get moving and I really want to encourage you to do that, this year of all years has been a time when people have felt perhaps a little bit down have been out of their groove
due to the epidemic which we don't even need to name, and i just want to let you know that at The Chiropractic Domain this year once more
we are participating in STEPtember. Now STEPtember is a fundraiser for cerebral palsy for those young people who cannot through wish or want to be able to move in the way they would necessarily like to due to their condition. So I thought it was a great excuse for my team to once again get moving
and to meet the challenge of 10,000 steps per day.
Now we had a competition last year within the team and out CA at Mount Gamber; Sonia absolutely smashed us and did an enormous amount of steps. I was right up her alley not far behind her but she was the step queen. But the message I want to bring to you is it doesn't matter so much how many thousands of steps you managed to achieve over the whole month but consistency of making sure you're moving enough each day is actually part of changing your life because if you can keep that habit up that means that overall you're going to be moving and our body is going to benefit in just so many ways.
So dust off your footwear go get yourself some new footwear there's a number of great places you could check that out athlete's foot which is in both clinic locations. You could look at the running company which is on Unley road there's also another great company called Sportitude. People who will actually pay the attention to get you good footwear so that when you do walk you have greater comfort.
If there's any issues that you notice that evolve from doing extra walking please come and talk to Dr Ashley and I there may be a few little mechanical
tweaks we can help you make to get going so I'd love you to put your best foot forward. Join us if you want to keep up with the tally of how we're all going
pay attention to the clinic and the Facebook posts and get moving for spring and we might just raise a little bit of money for our lovely young people who suffer with cerebral palsy too
Take care everybody
