The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown but is thought to be multifactorial – precipitated by environmental, genetic, psychological and concurrent medical conditions. Management of this complex condition involves improving physical and mental wellbeing and may include dietary modification, relaxation strategies, sleep management, exercise progression, psychotherapy and medications (including antidepressants and analgesics).

Osteoporosis is thought to affect up to 30% of post-menopausal women. Men are also affected by this condition which results in progressive weakening of the bones and increased likelihood of fracture, spinal pain and immobility.
Although diets high in Vitamin D and calcium are recommended for people with osteoporosis, this alone has negligible impact on improving bone mineral density. Exercise is the cornerstone in managing osteoporosis.

Sports injury rehabilitation
Injuries acquired through sporting activity account for over 5% of presentations to
General Practitioners in Australia. Knee, shoulder and ankle injuries account for the majority of these cases. Australian sports in particular are known for providing a steady influx of patients to doctors and physiotherapists alike. Netball and Australian Rules Football are responsible for injuries to knees and ankles while swimming and rugby contribute to thousands of cases of shoulder and neck pain.

Pilates for whiplash
Whiplash is a multifaceted and often controversial condition resulting from the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the head and neck. It is most commonly, though not exclusively, experienced following motor vehicle trauma.
Appropriate management in the first two weeks following injury is vital and should include adequate pharmaceutical analgesia, myofascial-based therapies, followed by an early resumption of normal activities.

“Stop slouching” classes
What’s your excuse for slouching? There’s no evidence to suggest that improving your posture makes you more attractive, accentuates your curves, increases your IQ or improves your sexual appeal… but it certainly assists with body confidence and muscle strength.

Pilates mat classes
This is a great way to improve spinal strength, flexibility, posture and fitness. Mat classes incorporate the most up-to-date use of Pilates principles to maximise core strength and stabilisation whilst improving flexibility and posture.

Falls prevention classes
Every year in Australia over 100 000 people are hospitalised with fall-related injuries. The incidence of falls rises dramatically over the age of 65, as does the risk of real and lasting injury. There are ways to reduce the risk of falling, no matter your age. These include increasing your strength, balance and coordination and learning about ‘trip hazards’ in your home.

In addition to strengthening your core musculature, fitball classes offer a fun and affordable way to integrate formal class-based exercises with your home fitball regime.
Classes can be coordinated to suit your ongoing involvement with medical and manual treatments and are developed with advice from the spinal doctors at Kingsley Medical.

This is a general term for describing a number of treatment interventions aimed at ‘re-igniting’ the repair of chronically inflamed and damaged soft tissue. Most of these treatment modalities have been used for decades but, despite their effectiveness, they have been either too expensive or too painful to administer. Even today prolotherapies are seldom used as first-line treatments due to the fact that cheaper and quicker treatments are preferred by patient and doctor alike.
In cases of chronic and persistent soft tissue pathologies, however, prolotherapy is a reliable remedy and often has startling and positive results. Prolotherapies offered at Kingsley Medical include:
- Autologous blood injections – used in cases of tendonitis, fasciitis and enthesitis.
- Platelet Rich Plasma – used in cases of mild to moderate osteoarthritis, bursitis, enthesitis and tendonitis.
- Shockwave therapy – used in chronic cases of bursitis, fasciitis, tendonitis. This can also be used with patients who refuse blood-products for religious or cultural reasons.
