For Health Professionals

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

Type 2 diabetes has risen to the level of a global pandemic.1 In the presence of a foot ulcer, five-year mortality rates climb to 44%.2 Additionally, the economic burden of diabetic foot disease costs Australia 1.6 billion annually.3


Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease

The World Health Organization estimates that 27.5% of people are not getting enough exercise,1 and a separate analysis published in the Lancet attributes 9% of global premature deaths to inactivity.2 Clearly, when sedentary patients increase physical activity, the risks posed by cardiovascular disease are greatly mitigated, but what is the role of the primary care practitioner in this? Moreover, what is the difference between a physical activity recommendation and prescribed exercise?


Quadriceps Strength Predicts Mortality in COPD

One in twenty Australians age 45+ live with COPD.1 The resulting dyspnoea, reduced exercise tolerance, and communication hindrance strongly impact quality of life. What’s more, each year, roughly one in five people with moderate to severe COPD experience an acute exacerbation requiring urgent care.


Strength Improvements Over Age 90

Sarcopenia leads to functional impairment including poor endurance, slow gait, and reduced mobility. Moreover, the condition predicts falls, poor quality of life, disability, and mortality.1


Functional Independence and Dementia

The Dose-Response Relationship to Therapeutic Exercise Dementia ranks as a leading cause of disability for elderly patients, and the prevalence is expected to quadruple over the next three decades.1


Fibromyalgia and Exercise

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a “syndrome of widespread pain, decreased pain threshold, and characteristic symptoms that include non-restorative sleep, fatigue, stiffness, mood disturbance, irritable bowel syndrome, headache, paraesthesia and other less common features.”1.


Plantar Fasciosis - What Works Best

he Indian Journal of Orthopaedics recently published a first-of-its-kind study comparing four proven treatment approaches to plantar fasciosis (previously referred to as plantar fasciitis).


Sciatica: Immediate Physiotherapy Improves Treatment Success Rates 60% at 1 Year

In our November bulletin, we described a study out of the U.K. that is reversing a decade’s old consensus opinion that sciatica has a good prognosis, with the majority of pain complaints resolving within four weeks.1,2 In the U.K. study, Kika Konstantinou et al. found that patients went from an average pain intensity of 5.2 on a 10-point scale to 2.4 after one year. Other measures of pain and disability showed strong persistence as well.


Breast Cancer Exercise

Breast Cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.1 Survival rate has increased as a result of advancement in diagnosis and treatment, with a five-year survival rate of 91% in Australia.[2] Women are living longer after their cancer diagnosis, but are faced with many long-term side effects of the disease and associated treatment.[3]


Barriers to Osteoarthritis Management

Despite relative uniformity in clinical guidelines, the care Australians receive for osteoarthritis is variable and often divergent from the guidelines, according to Martin Basedow (University of South Australia) and his research team.


Fall Prevention Rehab Is it Cost-Effective

In New South Wales, fall injury deaths are on the rise. Compared to 2001, fallrelated mortality among people age 65+ is up 72%.1 In addition to the personal toll these injuries levy on our patients, they create significant medical expenses
