Australia’s U23 Men’s Coxed Four were crowned World Rowing U23 Championships 2019.

It is with great pleasure we announce patients of the Practice, Mitchell Hooper and pair partner Ben Canham became World Rowing Champions in Sarasota Florida.

According to Rowing Australia:

In calm conditions, the U23 Men’s Coxed Four of Ben Canham, Angus Dawson, Mitchell Hooper, Adam Bakker and Caitlin Hockings were crowned World Champions after leading their final from start to finish. The crew, coached by Nick Mitchell, won their heat earlier in the week and Hockings led her crew out firing in the final today in Florida.

The crew clocked a time of 6 minutes 10 seconds to claim victory, having to hold off a last minute sprint to the line from Great Britain, who took silver, and Italy who took bronze. There was only 0.09 of a second between the Australians and the British as the boats crossed the line, while the Italians were just 0.63 of a second behind the Australians.

190724 Heats Starting

Australian Men’s Coxed Four – Heats

“Straight off the start in Heat Two, Australia took the lead and them moved into a stroke rate of 39. The Australians maintain this going into the halfway. Great Britain, Germany and Ireland followed all tightly packed together. Then Ireland made a move going through the 1000m. They grabbed two seats on Germany.

Great Britain went with them and were now even with Ireland. Australia were still the fastest moving boat on the water, with the highest rate – 38. Then Germany must have wanted back in and made a move. They got their bow past Ireland and Great Britain and tried to close the gap that Australia had.”

Theragun

The Theragun – Power Drill or Your New Best Friend?

While it might resemble something you’d pick up at Bunnings, the Theragun is becoming the new best friend for many of our patients here at The Spinal Centre.

The foam attachments create localized vibration to stimulate intense blood flow to treat sore muscles, chronic pain and improve mobility. The frequency of the device is calibrated to interrupt the brain’s pain receptors, reducing discomfort during treatment.

The Theragun works well on tight muscles, relaxing them in a matter of minutes. Despite it’s intimidating exterior, it never actually hits the body with force, instead it glides across the body with constant vibration.
