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.
If you’re aged 45 and over and are found to be at high risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke you could be eligible to a free 6 month programme to get professional help to start a journey towards a healthy life.
The programme is aimed to help you make healthy choices and changes in life to reduce your risk of chronic medical problems. You’ll have the choice of phone coaching or small groups and online support is available to all participants.
If you’re interested in finding out more and to check you’re eligible drop by in clinic to see me today!
