NTC Grand Challenge Cup

Henley Royal Regatta 2018 – Grand Challenge Cup

The Australian Eight produces a new record at Henley.

Even if you are just moderately interested in rowing – both these races are superb.

The National Training Centre is THE elite centre for mens Rowing in Australia. When Dr. Hooper rowed for Australia in the 90’s, they were based at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). Under direction of Australian Rowing a new centre has been established on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra.

The men from the National Training Centre (NTC) Australia made it into the final by beating the British VIII. Well done to the boys from the National Training Centre in Canberra for their fantastic tenacity and skill.

One of the best races we have seen in Australian Rowing.

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.
