Out of the office and onto the paddle board

There’s nothing quite like a paddle on a beautiful west coast day! Our staff have been LOVING this nicer weather and take every opportunity to get outside. Zoë, whose smiling face you usually see as soon as you arrive at the clinic, snapped this shot when she took her stand-up paddle board out for a spin last weekend.⁣


Stand-up paddling is a great option for those who are looking to increase their strength, balance, and cardiovascular health without all the impact of some other types of exercise.

The instability of the water means you’ll be feeling the burn in your core, glutes and legs to keep yourself on the board.
 ⁣
In order to propel yourself through the water, your arms, back and shoulders will be hard at work as well.⁣

Love the sound of stand up paddle boarding but your injury is keeping you from giving it a try? Book in with one of our practitioners today and they will get you out on the water in no time.
