A Personal Message From Kym

We live in a society where we sit longer than we sleep and are relatively unaware of how damaging being so inactive is to our health and wellbeing (Move More Sit Less Report, Blueearth Foundation  Feb 2016)

And I am on a mission to see this change.

As a physiotherapist, I am committed to spreading the message that a little movement, done the right way, and done regularly, can literally change your life!

I’ve created a range of programs to help office workers and corporations, plus students, their parents and schools recognise the impact sedentary lifestyle and lots of screen-time are have on people to empower them to take a stand against ‘Sitting Disease’.

I know first hand the effects that sitting is having on our Nation.

For many years I worked and travelled with elite athletes and am an experienced APA Sports Physiotherapist.

Each day I would assess, prevent and treat the issues that professional athletes have with primarily overuse injuries.

But when I started working in a clinic in the heart of Adelaide City I noticed that desk workers and students also suffered from overuse injuries, just of a different nature.

It wasn’t just the elite athletes that were suffering.

It was everyday people like you and me too.

And I realised the need for injury prevention and rehabilitation for the ‘occupational athletes’ that where streaming in from surrounding offices and schools in the CBD.

Seeing this was a rising problem I completed a certification in Occupational Health Physiotherapy.

This has allowed me to combine all my skills to educate and inspire these clients, with amazing results…

And I have been simply astounded by the impact that a little ergonomic education, regular postural changes and simple exercises made to reduce people’s pain, improve their posture and their health.

Now I am committed to spreading the message further to help more people, like you, and more corporations, schools, communities….

I want more people to know how ‘a little movement, done the right way and regularly, can literally change your life’!
