Encouraging older people to exercise

Physical activity and exercise have strong, established benefits for people aged 60 years and older. However, getting this population sufficiently active remains a serious problem. Health professionals need to encourage all older people, regardless of age or health condition, to engage in a regular activity program that includes cardiovascular, strength and balance components to maintain the highest levels of physical activity possible. To accomplish this, health professionals need to be aware of the dosage of exercise that is recommended, as well as barriers and enablers to exercise for older people, and take these into consideration when prescribing a program.

This presentation will summarise the latest evidence regarding exercise for older people, with particular focus on the benefits of strength training. It will also briefly explore how health professionals can better encourage and support older adults to exercise at an amount and intensity that makes a difference.

This is a recording of the 2019 Vic Branch Winter Breakfast.

Musculoskeletal segmental and dry needling for physios

This foundation course taught by Trevor Montgomery is suitable for all physiotherapists wishing to expand their clinical reasoning and treatment skill sets with the use of dry needling. The course has a large practical component with particular emphasis on safe needling practice as set out in the latest safety guidelines.

The course is designed to help practitioners integrate dry needling into their clinical approach with a view to addressing the underlying causes of some of the more common clinical presentations we treat. Having taught over 120 introductory and advanced courses for AUT, PAANZ and the APA over the last 9 years, Trevor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his teaching in this specialty area. The theoretical content is based on the neurophysiology of the effects of needling including local, spinal and supraspinal and the modulation of pain via its central effects. The aetiology of trigger points is explained and the most common dry needling techniques are presented.

This course has a large practical component and on completion you will gain competency to needle a wide range of acupuncture and myofascial trigger points and other musculoskeletal structures.
