Father's Day 2019

Posted by Danny Williams  | 28 Aug 2019

"A man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad" 

 

This Sunday is Father's Day & the team at SYO would love to share our appreciation for all the amazing Dad's in our community. 
-
We know it's not an easy job but it is a great one. Every child needs a good "piggy back", someone to play wrestle with, to kick a footy with, to dive off shoulders into the pool or to crawl under the couch to grab the spider. It certainly sounds like a tough gig, but Dad's, have you ever wondered what your body is put through while performing these "dad duties"?
-
Far too often, we have father's coming in complaining of sore necks and backs from activities such as the above, as well as things like bathing their newborn awkwardly, giving their kids shoulder rides, playing in the pool or from gardening on the weekend, and as you can imagine, the list goes on!
-
Perhaps it may be worthwhile to check-in to your local osteo and see what they can do for you? Or do one better & buy your special father a treatment gift voucher. 
-
Osteopaths are trained at performing postural assessments and working out ways to best move your body in order to prevent injury. Neck and back pain is also the number one complaint that we see in our clinic & we are here to help. 80% of Australians will experience back pain at some point in their lives (ABS, 2016). If you are in pain or simply have some questions about how you should bend over (when getting the spider from under the couch!) then book in an appointment and see what we can do for you. 
-
Either way, from the team at SYO we would like to wish every father, step-father, grandfather, poppy, nonno, saba or to the Mum's playing both roles, a very HAPPY Father's Day! 
-
Enjoy your breakfast in bed (but make sure you have a good back support!) 
-
Yours in good health, 
-
Team SYO
