Just 10 days to go until the largest sporting event Australia will see this decade! ⚽️🏀🥊🤽♂️🏊♂️🚴♀️ I’m honoured to have been selected as a games doctor serving athletes and spectators at the heart of the Commonwealth Games Village.
Heat related illnesses such as dehydration, sun burn and sun stroke will be one of the most common presentations for medical aid. To make the most of your games experience be sure to always keep well hydrated, keep out of the sun and wear at least spf 30 sunblock. If you do feel unwell at anytime, present yourself to one of the friendly first aid team for help.
Do you suffer from Chronic Pain? You are not alone, an estimated 20% of Australian adults report chronic pain (persistent pain over 3 months). Help is at hand. Pain management is best achieved with a collaboration of multiple disciplines, ranging from the GP to physiotherapists, pain specialists and many others.
