4 46 [Edition Wednesday datE] November 8 2017 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi SELWYN TIMES dISCOVER A fresh approach to physio A young team with a fresh approach is providing a different type of physiotherapy treatment at PhysioSteps in West Melton. As physiotherapist Caitlin Clark explains, it is treatment for the whole patient, treating the source of the injury, not just the symptoms. “This means that we fix the injury at its source, to prevent you from returning again with the same injury. We do this by completing a thorough assessment, fully explaining the injury and then make a plan with the patient as to how it will be managed and how long it will take. “We emphasise self-management, with physiotherapy guidance, ensuring the injury improves as quickly and as well as possible.” Research has shown the effectiveness of an exercise-based approach to physiotherapy treatment, Caitlin says, helping patients be fully engaged in their rehab process and speeding up recovery. In their purpose-built clinic in Weedons Ross Road, the physiotherapists Kayla Marshall, Caitlin Clark and Shaun Clark provide treatment for musculoskeletal (muscles and joints) injuries, sports injuries, as well as pain management and occupational health/ergonomics advice. They are HDANZ accredited and contracted to ACC, which means they are audited and comply with the national standards set out for physiotherapy. PhysioSteps are located at 10/736 Weedons Ross Road, West Melton, phone (03) 930 1119. Opening hours are Monday and Thursday 9am-8pm, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 9am- 6pm. No referrals necessary.

Delaney Davidson in carnival mode - Arts on Tour NZ Magic Lightbox Tour at The Laboratory - Monday 13 November, 7pm Remember the slide show of the returned traveller? Remember the projected image on a sheet in the living room? See these oldtime images combined with evocative music in Delaney Davidson’s homage to lost ways of storytelling. Come and be enthralled with these traveller’s tales told through an ingenious blend of live music and film. In his inimitable style, Arts Laureate Delaney gives us a glimpse of a forgotten time - dusty highways, old Europe, the ‘new world’ of the USA and New Zealand as you’ve never seen it before... Fresh from the success of his recent European tour, Delaney presents ‘Magic Lightbox’ at The Laboratory on Monday 13 November, 7pm. Catch him before he disappears again for parts unknown. The Laboratory is opening especially on a Monday (when normally closed) so the whole venue will be given over to this fantastic event. Doors open at 5.30pm and the show starts at 7pm. The bar will be open with a delicious menu available on the night. Tickets are $15 and available over the bar or call 325 3006. Look forward to more superb performances at ticketed events at The Laboratory through the coming months.
