The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-08-16T22:00:28Z Sydney Footwork Podiatry Sports Clinic Says Durant Could Avoid Achilles Injury 2019-08-16T22:00:28Z sydney-footwork-podiatry-sports-clinic-says-durant-could-avoid-achilles-injury Ruptured Achilles pushes MVP Durant out of NBA finals 2 months ago, NBA finals saw an NBA franchise record as the Toronto Raptors took the championship for the first time, having defeated the Golden State Warriors by only four points. The loss may have come as a shock to the Warriors, as they had defeated the Raptors in their previous match, just days earlier. However, the Warrior's 1-point triumph over the Raptors in Game 5 came at the cost of star player and MVP Kevin Durant. Early in the second quarter, Durant keeled over in pain, visually clasping below the back of his right calf. Durant had suffered a painful rupture to his Achilles tendon, a flexible band of connective tissue which joins the lower calf muscle to the bone of the heel. While an Achilles tendon tear generally doesn't end an NBA career, history shows that it can cause ongoing issues to its sufferers. Mark Lin, Australia's leading sports podiatrist and director of Sydney-based Footwork Podiatry, says that “over my last 10 years in practice, 90% of the clients that I have seen have been suffering from ongoing issues in their calf muscles, these have often been uncovered due to the surging of other more painful problems, such as Achilles issues.” RELATED ARTICLE: Leading Sydney CBD and North Shore Sports Podiatrist Explains Why Manual Therapy is the Preferred Alternative Treatment for Bunions Having already missed the majority of the season just passed, Washington Wizards player John Wall is also expecting to miss the majority of the coming 2019-2020 season as he is still recovering from his ruptured Achilles injury, resulting in surgery in February of this year. Another all-star player, Demarcus Cousins, suffered an Achilles tendon rupture in January of 2018 which resulted in a season-ending reparative surgery while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans before he joined Durant on the Golden State Warriors team later last year. Achilles injuries can present in a variety of ways, such as a sharp, shooting pain in the back of your heel, or stiffness or dull ache originating in the Achilles tendon that radiates up to the calf muscle. External factors such as incorrect footwear, a sudden increase in physical activity, overtraining, or training on hard or uneven surfaces can lead to Achilles tendon injuries. These types of injuries must be dealt with swiftly, as the delay of their treatment could lead to irreversible tissue damage and long-term rehabilitation. As with many podiatry problems, Footwork Podiatry always recommends early evaluation and intervention to its patients. While symptoms may not be debilitating, ordinary symptoms, such as calf tightness, with time can contribute to the eventual rupturing of the Achilles tendon, which can be severely painful and present long-term repercussions. At Footwork Podiatry, we optimise treatment of Achilles tendon injuries, focussing on the reduction of excessive loading on the Achilles tendon, and the restoration of normal tissue function. We also specialise in a range of preventative treatment techniques for a variety of podiatry problems, including Achilles tendon injuries, that provide patients with sustainable relief of pain, promote the proper healing of muscular tissues and correct any underlying causes that we uncover. If you are presenting with early warning signs or are concerned that you may have already suffered an Achilles tendon injury, contact Footwork Podiatry to book your assessment and get ahead of the game with preventative treatments.

ESL's major tournaments record 90% growth in viewership by increasing esports content worldwide in 2019 2019-08-14T01:34:16Z esl-s-major-tournaments-record-90-growth-in-viewership-by-increasing-esports-content-worldwide-in-2019 (Cologne) 13th of August 2019 - ESL, the world’s largest esports company, today reported significant growth across multiple metrics for major ESL tournaments. Over the course of the first seven months of 2019, average minute audience (+90%), hours watched (+190%) and video views (+55%) have all heavily increased as a result of fans tuning into ESL One, Intel Extreme Masters and ESL Pro League tournaments, shattering the numbers recorded in 2018*.   The top four months across this time period recorded large spikes from major ESL competitions, such as Intel® Extreme Masters Katowice in March, which set the record as the most watched ESL tournament series of all time with more than 174,000 attendees over the course of two weekends. In May, both ESL One Birmingham and Intel Extreme Masters Sydney surpassed the previous viewership figures from last year’s tournaments. ESL Pro League Occitanie in June also broke its all-time viewership records, making this season the most watched in the league’s history. ESL One Cologne in July clocked the most hours watched for a non-major CS:GO tournament, and was sold-out for the fourth consecutive year. Following the brand refresh in January, the viewer experience at all major tournaments has significantly improved, resulting in significant growth across nearly all metrics.   “This growth in viewership and interest is humbling to see,” said Ralf Reichert, CEO at ESL. “ESL’s open ecosystem enables us to work with a variety of games that allows ESL to build standout, innovative properties such as IEM Katowice, ESL One Cologne and Birmingham and see them thrive and grow over the years. We will continue to go that extra mile for a world where everybody can be somebody, creating a path for everybody to participate in these tournaments to build memorable moments for players, fans, partners."   ESL 2019 milestones   ●      Intel Grand Slam completed at ESL One Cologne in record time   ESL One Cologne, widely known as “The Cathedral of Counter-Strike,” sold out four years in a row, and recorded 12.3 million hours watched, resulting in a new record for most hours watched for a non-major CS:GO tournament. Winners Team Liquid took home a total of $1,115,000 for winning first place and completing the second ever Intel Grand Slam, a prize for winning four premier ESL and DreamHack Masters tournaments inside a stretch of ten, in a record time of 63 days.   ●      ESL Pro League revamp   The ESL Pro League Season 9 and its Finals in Occitanie at the Sud de France Arena broke its all-time viewership records. By doubling video views to 66.6 million compared to Season 8, and reaching over 16.1 million hours watched, this was the most watched Season of Pro League in its history.   ●      ESL One Birmingham sets Dota 2 viewership record   ESL One Birmingham, United Kingdom's largest esports tournament surpassed the highest viewership for an ESL One Dota 2 event thus far. The tournament reached a new peak record of 306,070 concurrent viewers tuning into the broadcast, which is a rise of 12.4% since it’s last record during the Hamburg Major in 2017. Hours watched also saw a very significant rise with over 7.6 million hours consumed over the course of the Dota 2 filled weekend.   ●      IEM Sydney sets new record for Australian esports viewership   This year’s event surpassed all previous viewership records for an esports tournament held in Australia, with over 20 million viewers tuning in across the duration of the event. Counter-Strike fans across the world watched almost 10 million hours of content over the course of the event, up 16% vs. 2018. It was the tournament’s third stop in Sydney, and 75th stop globally since its inception in 2006.   ●      ESL and Intel welcomed 174,000 fans at world’s most attended esports tournament in Katowice   Along with 174,000 fans attending the tournaments and surrounding expo over the course of two weekends, 20 million people tuned in on each day, resulting in significant growth across major viewer metrics, and made the competition the most watched ESL tournament series of all time. The event was broadcast by both linear and digital partners worldwide, who produced and distributed content in 21 languages.   ●      ESL evolves its master brand   ESL had a significant role in shaping the industry in terms of broadcast, production and event experience across the world’s most prestigious esports brands and products, pioneering stadium tournaments and consistently breaking industry records. The brand refresh was a key cornerstone of ESL’s growth acceleration strategy, and  better integrated its partner brands by clarifying the path from zero to hero across ESL’s multiple leagues and tournaments, growing its massive fanbase.   More details about ESL can be found at the new corporate site of ESL at about.eslgaming.com.

YourMC Professional emcee Rob Doorey may not wave an orchestra conductor’s baton during his presentations as an event host, but his role as an emcee can be construed as sharing some similarities with that of conductors of orchestral performances. While these two styles of events differ in multiple respects, there are some similarities into qualities needing to be possessed by those chiefly responsible for guiding these performances. For instance, both types of “performances” require sensitive guidance and direction of their respective participants by a super-responsive other: in one case a music conductor, in the other: a professional emcee. In making this comparison, consider the role of a musical conductor, as defined in Wikipedia: “The primary responsibilities of the conductor are to unify performers, set the tempo, execute clear preparations and beats, listen critically and shape the sound of the ensemble, and to control the interpretation and pacing of the music”. Indeed, many people would agree that the rightform of sensitive guidance from the most suitableconductor (or emcee) will more likely achieve the desired outcome of successful performance (or event). With decades of experience as a professional emcee hosting a range of successful events from corporate conferences and product launches, to gala dinners and business awards nights, Rob’s personal insights into this domain assuredly have merit. Some conductor-like attributes Rob has and uses in his profession include precision-timing, careful pacing and an ability to pay close attention to subtle nuances that well might be missed by other participants. Rob credits his ability to pick up on such nuances and to act appropriately on them to his many years of experience in the profession. His career in commercial radio has undeniably contributed to his sharp sense of timing on-stage and during interviews, helping him to effectively “read” and respond to audiences and to interviewees while at the same time often responding to feedback/requests by production crew or other managers who make requests (or commands) into his headpiece. As well as having to ‘build rapport quickly” with a range of people, Rob lists many other functions of the role of an event host. Time-keeping is a critical one, with this including “cueing people - so they are ready to go” and “getting performers both on and off-stage efficiently”. On this note, Rob recalls doing stage-interviews with Western Sydney Wanderers football players in a shopping venue which he describes as challenging as he had to manage sets of players both on and off the stage “and at both ends” at once - while at the same time tuning-in to the assembled mall crowd and responding accordingly. “I see myself as a conductor of sorts,” he said. “I do bring this to my role as an emcee. And I am organised, good at bringing calm to what can be a stressful situation.” One of Rob’s clients, Adam Farmer, of MG MY GATEWAY, attests to Rob’s conducting abilities while event-hosting in his comment: "Rob was the ultimate professional (emcee) - Great voice, was easy to work with, understood what we were about and kept the evening moving along." At times there is also a need for an emcee to “run interventions” or “fill in gaps” with appropriate improvisations (usually dialogue). Rob agreed and added: “I am able to quickly analyse a situation and take action fast. And I am quick-witted and energetic," which most certainly helps! Rob’s effectiveness in his many roles as an emcee has been amply demonstrated by the many years of “repeat custom” he has had as a professional event-host, including to high-end corporate events and to a wealth of other events around the country. Corporate realtor functions are one sector he enjoys catering to, with corporate Raine and Horne and Elders clients seeking him out in particular. Another annual event that Rob has hosted for several years and that is especially close to his heart is the Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation Ball -- which is a major fundraising event for the Children’s’ Ward of Campbelltown Hospital, a part of Sydney’s Westmead Children’s Hospital.

Best MC Professional Emcee Master of Ceremonies Australia's Rob Doorey Is YourMC 2019-08-05T22:00:30Z best-mc-professional-emcee-master-of-ceremonies-australias-rob-doorey-is-yourmc “The challenge... The buzz... The reactions of an audience... The occasional ambience of glitz and glamour... Intangible rewards…" (including the personal rewards for emcees of having participated in successful events in meaningful and often invisible ways). To polished emcee Rob Doorey these are some of the alluring qualities of the winsome world of emceeing. But while he thrives on what can be fleeting associations, Rob has put in long hours over a sustained period of time in the entertainment industry to hone his talents. Most assuredly, he has done the hard yards. "In the lyrics of ACDC, 'it's a long way to the top'," Doorey said. For instance, in the early years of what has now evolved into more than a couple of decades for him in the commercial broadcasting industry, Doorey's first foray was as a team-driver ofthe Black Thunder vehicles for 2DayFM Radio in Sydney (the Black Thunders were the station’s promotion vehicles). During this stretch, Doorey and 5 other drivers took six cars allaround the streets of Sydney, from the beaches to the bush. Their station promotions saw them generating listeners and attracting patrons through a wealth of activities - among them: running contests, dishing out promo prizes - large and small, and interviewing multiple fans and various guests sponsored by the station for featured promotional events designed to rev-up the station’s fan-base. Doorey was also involved at this time in the introduction of special characters such as “Bladerunner” and in new night-radio promotions that proved very popular. Doorey's launch into full-time on-air broadcasting came in his hometown of Gosford at Coast Rock FM, where his solid work ethic came into focus. Working from midnight to dawn, Doorey delivered the night broadcast program and soon after dawn took the Gosford station’s promo vehicle out onto the streets for the breakfast show promotions.He also began doing guest DJ work at local nightclubs in the evenings - all this time still driving the Black Thunders in Sydney as well. While Doorey's work commitments didn’t leave much time for rest, the varied and busy roles sufficiently cut his teeth in the industry. Live promotional events for radio, for instance, could see Doorey interviewing and introducing live bands on stages in front of crowds on beachfronts or in shopping centres and seamlessly handling all the unseen variables involved in these styles of productions, where “multiple things are happening at a time”. Such events even came to include televised events on football fields with new sets of multiple variables and similarly pressured environments with strict production deadlines, all of which Doorey learnt to adeptly handle. After the early periods in Sydney and Gosford, Doorey headed north -- working for several radio stations, including 4CA - Cairns and Triple M Brisbane; as well as hosting for The Sky Radio network, The Super Radio network, Talk Australia, C91.3FM and Breeze FM. Doorey's years in radio clearly equipped him for unexpected challenges in fast-paced, pressured situations and gave him the knack to calmly deal with split-second changes that may arise at any moment. Doorey describes himself as a calm and organised person who does his homework and is not averse to problem-solving. These are real assets in his current profession and of real benefit to his clients. As he says: “I am able to make the (event/presentation) process easy and comfortable for those around me. While we may be working on the most important event in our (clients’) lives, I will bring a calm to the event,” comments Doorey. Rob Doorey is Australia's premier emcee.

It’s not just the professional racing or hobbyist cyclists that visit this nationwide chain, though. Parents and children can always find what they are looking for at the popular chain, with employees who are always ready to deliver thoughtful and tailored advice regarding the perfect choice of bicycle. For many, the purchase of kids bikes in New Zealand is filled with questions. What size bike should I give my child? Do I need to add training wheels? Even beyond these questions are the points that parents may not know about, such as whether the bike should have suspension or gears. The answers to all of these queries depend on the child who will be riding the bike, and as such will alter the parents’ choices. According to the experienced employees, two of the biggest factors when purchasing a bike for a child are their age and their height. Age plays a large part in determining the correct bicycle because it hints at their experience with fine motor control, decision-making and cycling itself. There is a line of children’s bikes that come with low suspension, training wheels and no gears in order to gently introduce a child to the mechanics of riding a bike. As they progress in experience, parents can be more confident in placing them on a bike with suspension that can handle rougher terrain, gears that can increase their potential speed, and no training wheels. The second big factor – height – is important for all cyclists, regardless of their age. The height of your chosen bike should allow you to reach the handlebars and the bottom swing of the pedals with ease, without cramping or over-elongating you. Age does not completely determine a child’s height, so if you’re buying a bike for your child make sure to bring them into the store for a test run.

The ‘super gear’ helping Cleary get to Origin III 2019-07-03T03:28:35Z the-super-gear-helping-cleary-get-to-origin-iii-1 Bauerfeind Australia, the official compression and supports supplier to the NSW Blues this State of Origin rushed out to Penrith last Thursday to fit Nathan Cleary with their German medical-grade ‘super gear’, adding a dimension to help speed up Cleary’s recovery program to help give him every chance possible for Origin III. Walid Yassine from Bauerfeind Australia fit Cleary with a medical grade ‘combination ankle kit’ in a bid to get him to Sydney on July 10. He started by stabilising the injury so he can train without further risk, then added a compression sock to minimise swelling before Cleary will finally transition to a three-in-one support to add further stability so he can train in the lead-up to the game as well as potentially play with full supports in place (see below detailed description of the Bauerfeind combination ankle kit). All products fitted were based on Bauerfeind’s state-of-the-art Bodytronic 600® 3D scan Cleary undertook to ensure perfect fit (see image attached). Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues coach Brad Fittler said the players wore the Bauerfeind compression garments on the plane to and from Perth for Game Two, as well as during and post training and others during the match. “In elite sport, it is all about the one per-centers so we were very keen to embrace the use of the Bauerfeind compression garments because they are considered the best products in the world,” Fittler said. “The players were really happy with them and wore them regularly on and off the field,” he said. Says Walid Yassine, “Our products are leading-edge, we are the official supplier to the Olympic Games and pro-athletes such as the NBA’s Dirk Nowitzki attributes a very long career because of our compression and supports that speed up recovery and enhances performance. It’s truly ‘super gear’ that Cleary – and the rest of the team - is wearing which is having a huge impact in their game overall and with Cleary’s recovery.” ABOUT THE COMBINATION ANKLE KIT by Walid Yassine, Managing Director of Bauerfeind The MalleoLoc® was used to laterally stabilise Cleary’s ankle. A moon boot is great to stabilise an injury however it also deactivates several perfectly fine other muscles, so as soon as it is safe to do so it is best to get out of the moot boot and start restrengthening. The MalleoLoc® can laterally stabilise Cleary’s ankle specifically whilst enabling him to start running/loading the ankle with minimised risk of any further lateral injury. Essentially the sooner one is out of a cast or moon boot, the more players can get into the restrengthening activities. Intertwined with the MalleoLoc® is our class Cocoon® compression socks. Swelling management is a critical part of rehabbing faster. The compression socks were 3D measured by Bauerfeind’s BodyTronic 600® system which is a 99.8% accurate scanner which then recommends a precision fit size that we have subsequently fitted Cleary with (see image attached). We can ensure a medical grade of compression alongside a lateral stabiliser that Cleary can use whilst re-strengthening occurs thereby minimising swelling as well as minimising the risk of further lateral injury. Then, as soon as Cleary has increased strength and ability to load the ankle, he will transition to the MalleoTrain Plus®. The MalleoTrain Plus® is a unique three-in-one product offering medical grade compression, lateral and medial silicon supports as well as an intertwined figure eight strap. This will provide added levels of support whilst being able to sprint and load as required for Cleary as he looks to cement his availability. Cleary can run in the MalleoTrain Plus®, even during game time; the compression helps swelling and the silicone and strapping will support him throughout training and the game hence giving him strength, support and all-important confidence. Finally, Cleary was also provided with Bauerfeind’s Ball and Racket socks which is a knee length compression sock with an intertwined figure eight in the sock which provides added levels of stability for the ankle as well as swelling management. For more information or to interview Walid Yassine about Cleary’s recovery using Bauerfeind, please contact Anna Abignano on Tel: 0411 481 477 or anna@allaboutpr.com.au The ‘super gear’ helping Cleary get to Origin III 2019-07-03T02:27:35Z the-super-gear-helping-cleary-get-to-origin-iii Bauerfeind Australia, the official compression and supports supplier to the NSW Blues this State of Origin rushed out to Penrith last Thursday to fit Nathan Cleary with their German medical-grade ‘super gear’, adding a dimension to help speed up Cleary’s recovery program to help give him every chance possible for Origin III. Walid Yassine from Bauerfeind Australia fit Cleary with a medical grade ‘combination ankle kit’ in a bid to get him to Sydney on July 10. He started by stabilising the injury so he can train without further risk, then added a compression sock to minimise swelling before Cleary will finally transition to a three-in-one support to add further stability so he can train in the lead-up to the game as well as potentially play with full supports in place (see below detailed description of the Bauerfeind combination ankle kit). All products fitted were based on Bauerfeind’s state-of-the-art Bodytronic 600® 3D scan Cleary undertook to ensure perfect fit (see image attached). Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues coach Brad Fittler said the players wore the Bauerfeind compression garments on the plane to and from Perth for Game Two, as well as during and post training and others during the match. “In elite sport, it is all about the one per-centers so we were very keen to embrace the use of the Bauerfeind compression garments because they are considered the best products in the world,” Fittler said. “The players were really happy with them and wore them regularly on and off the field,” he said. Says Walid Yassine, “Our products are leading-edge, we are the official supplier to the Olympic Games and pro-athletes such as the NBA’s Dirk Nowitzki attributes a very long career because of our compression and supports that speed up recovery and enhances performance. It’s truly ‘super gear’ that Cleary – and the rest of the team - is wearing which is having a huge impact in their game overall and with Cleary’s recovery.” ABOUT THE COMBINATION ANKLE KIT by Walid Yassine, Managing Director of Bauerfeind The MalleoLoc® was used to laterally stabilise Cleary’s ankle. A moon boot is great to stabilise an injury however it also deactivates several perfectly fine other muscles, so as soon as it is safe to do so it is best to get out of the moot boot and start restrengthening. The MalleoLoc® can laterally stabilise Cleary’s ankle specifically whilst enabling him to start running/loading the ankle with minimised risk of any further lateral injury. Essentially the sooner one is out of a cast or moon boot, the more players can get into the restrengthening activities. Intertwined with the MalleoLoc® is our class Cocoon® compression socks. Swelling management is a critical part of rehabbing faster. The compression socks were 3D measured by Bauerfeind’s BodyTronic 600® system which is a 99.8% accurate scanner which then recommends a precision fit size that we have subsequently fitted Cleary with (see image attached). We can ensure a medical grade of compression alongside a lateral stabiliser that Cleary can use whilst re-strengthening occurs thereby minimising swelling as well as minimising the risk of further lateral injury. Then, as soon as Cleary has increased strength and ability to load the ankle, he will transition to the MalleoTrain Plus®. The MalleoTrain Plus® is a unique three-in-one product offering medical grade compression, lateral and medial silicon supports as well as an intertwined figure eight strap. This will provide added levels of support whilst being able to sprint and load as required for Cleary as he looks to cement his availability. Cleary can run in the MalleoTrain Plus®, even during game time; the compression helps swelling and the silicone and strapping will support him throughout training and the game hence giving him strength, support and all-important confidence. Finally, Cleary was also provided with Bauerfeind’s Ball and Racket socks which is a knee length compression sock with an intertwined figure eight in the sock which provides added levels of stability for the ankle as well as swelling management.

But this is not always the case. A heel spur can develop without causing any pain, and heel pain has a number of other possible causes. Formed by a calcium deposit developing into a bony protrusion on the underside of the heel bone, a heel spur is often painless but can cause heel pain. It’s often associated with plantar fasciitis, which is the inflammation of the fibrous band of connective tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel bone to the ball of the foot. RELATED ARTICLE: Sports Podiatry Roseville Sydney CBD On Feet Injury Foot Pain Ankle Sprains Toes The strain on the foot muscles and ligaments, stretching of the plantar fascia and repetitive tearing of the membrane that covers the heel bone can cause the development of a heel spur. The condition is especially common amongst athletes engaging in activities that include frequent running and jumping. Hence the cause of pain is not the heel spur but injury to the soft tissue surrounding it. A heel spur can only be positively identified by means of an x-ray, where it can them be seen to extend forward by as much as half an inch. Without x-ray evidence, the condition may be referred to as ‘heel spur syndrome’. The pain is described by patients as a stabbing pain that is often worse first thing in the morning or after a long period of sitting down - this is as a result of a sudden elongation of the fascia band, which stretches and pulls on the heel upon standing up. Risk factors contributing to the development of heel spurs: Walking gait abnormalities that put excessive strain on the heel bone, ligaments and nerves near the heel. Frequent running on hard surfaces. Ill-fitting or worn-out shoes, especially if they lack adequate arch support. Being overweight. Ageing, which decreases the flexibility of the plantar fascia and thins the protective fat pad over the heel. Diabetes. Spending much of the day on ones feet. Frequent short bursts of physical activity. Flat feet or high arches. What are the other possible causes of chronic or intermittent heel pain? Principal Sports Podiatrist and Director for Footwork Podiatry, Mark Lin, has this to say, “A heel spur does not always cause pain. Research has shown that 15% of the general population have heel spurs that don’t cause any pain. More often, it’s the related factors contributing to the formation of the heel spur that are the cause of the pain. Mechanical stress, repetitive pressure, inflammation or tears in the plantar fascia are the most common causes of heel pain. Therefore, instead of treating the heel spur and trying to get rid of it, we instead focus on a rehabilitative and corrective treatment approach to address the underlying cause of the heel pain.” RELATED ARTICLE: Roseville Sydney Sports Podiatry Foot Fungal Nail Infections Laser Therapy Solutions Lin is an authoritative expert on the subject, and he describes a number of other condition could be the real reason behind nagging heel pain: Achilles tendinitis- inflammation of the Achilles tendon is common among people to partake in a lot of running and/or walking lot and have tight tendons. When the tendon is strained over time, the fibres stretch or tear along the length or where it attaches to the heel bone. This leads to inflammation, pain and the possible growth of a bone spur. The condition is aggravated by chronic irritation as a result of an active lifestyle, and activities that put excessive strain on an already tight tendon. Heel bursitis (subcalcaneal bursitis) - an inflammation of the bursa (a fibrous, fluid-filled sac) under the heel bone. The pain is typically more pronounced in the centre of the heel and worsens during the day. Tarsal tunnel syndrome - presenting as a burning or tingling sensation underneath the heel and within the arch of the foot, this syndrome may also cause occasional loss of sensation on the bottom of the foot. It’s caused by compression of the tibial nerve as it passes the inside of the ankle. Severs disease (calcaneal apophysitis) - this usually affects growing active children between the ages of 8 and 12, especially during a growth spurt and results from inflammation of the Achilles tendon where it attaches to the heel bone. If you're struggling with heel pain, Footwork Podiatryis always on hand to assist and answer any questions you may have.

Vicky Leonard who was in 2018 named among the most influential people in global racing under the age of 35, is the managing director of the innovative marketing, strategy and design firm Kick Collective as well as TDN Aust/NZ.  Vicky’s passion is centred on ensuring the racing industry has a future, which aligns well with the miRunners ownership model, aimed at materially impacting the number of people who race horses in Australia.  Vicky states, “I have always been motivated by inspiring ideas and what miRunners are doing could prove a key innovation in contributing to the future proofing of the racing industry. The thrill of ownership and a deep connection with the thoroughbred are the racing industry’s key assets, these are assets that no other competing entertainment option can offer. The sport of racing needs to evolve from the tradition of being priced only for the wealthy and miRunners have done this via a trusted, transparent structure that allows mainstream populations to experience premium level, yet affordable ownership”.  “Like all entertainment options, the racing industry too must innovate to survive, it must use technology to connect with the next generation and with an animal welfare movement dominating the conversation within racing, we must rebuild and reconnect the bond between human and horse. I am extremely motivated to be working with miRunners on such an important industry opportunity”. Blake Matthews’ joins the board as a non-executive of the NSW Racehorse Owners Association an experienced Manager in the Chartered Accounting and Professional Services space with the well respected AH Tighe & Associates. Aside from bringing with him critical expertise in financial management and corporate governance, Blake brings to the table a deep seeded passion for the future of racing.  “I accepted the position as a non-executive director of NSWROA with a knowledge that the next generation is going to be critical in shaping the future of what is a truly wonderful sport, said Matthews. “Race days as a whole have a live atmosphere that can rival the best of our domestic sporting codes. Coupled with growing prizemoney and competition I see a future where Racing is a true top tier sport for everyone to enjoy. Having the privilege to join the NSWROA board I'm excited by the opportunity to now potentially shift the dial in racing with miRunners”.  “The opportunity through miRunners to change the sport for the betterment of just so many, immediately grabbed my attention. Removing the traditional barriers to entry in racing brings with it significant execution requirements and we have a lot to do. However, I have been working with the miRunners team for a while now and this is a group of people who are motivated to ensure racing not only survives in the future but thrives as well”. CEO and co-founder of miRunners Steve Brown welcome the appointments. ”As a $5bn industry,  being reliant on the ageing heartbeats of just 100000 owners, seems quite a risk to take.''  “Whilst miRunners is years in the making, since we have launched, in a relatively short space of time we have introduced thousands of Australians into this wonderful industry through ownership”. “This is importantly a premium level experience, via expensive horses made affordable and digitally accessible via the 1000 ownership unit structure. Two thirds of our owners to date are aged 35-44 and under and two thirds have never owned a racehorse before”. “This however is just the beginning and with much to do, these appointments will likely prove key in our quest, as we take the responsibility of what we are doing extremely seriously.” Blake Matthews and Vicky Leonard’s appointments will be effective from 1 July 2019.  ENDS About miRunners miRunners is changing the face of Australian thoroughbred racing, making horse ownership accessible to all Australians.  For most of history, ownership of thoroughbreds was limited to a select few with high costs and obstacles making it incredibly difficult for the everyday Australian to enjoy the ownership experience. The miRunners model has changed all that as we aim to bring the best horses together with the best trainers and make them affordable so anyone who has a passion for racing can experience ownership. There is no secret to our formula: we simply purchase a premium racehorse, match it up with a top tier trainer and split the purchase cost into 1,000 units. No mark up.  For example: when the first miRunners horse – Saganaki, was purchased at the Gold Coast Magic Millions for $165,000, the horse was split into 1,000 units which were available to purchase for $165 each. We expect any horse we purchase to be in the $165,000-300,000 price range and every horse we purchase will be divided into 1,000 equal units. If the horse wins, the owners’ share of win is also distributed equally by 1,000 units. miRunners makes its fees from the monthly fee. $11 (inc. GST) covers the communication and administration, $5 per month covers all the insurance, food and training fees. Total fees for your first unit will be $16 per month but only $5 for any subsequent units in the same horse. No matter how many units you own in a horse, you pay the $11 (inc. GST) component for your first unit only. The miRunners ownership experience: No matter if you own a single unit or if you own 20, every unit holder is given the full ownership experience which includes: Updates direct to you from your leading trainer/stable in real time Pro-rata share in prize money won Pro-rata share in sales proceeds at end of racing career Opportunities to meet your horse and your trainer Private area on race day (dependent on the race day conditions) Certificate of ownership A chance to add a premium thoroughbred horse to your family The opportunity to develop life-long friendships A dedicated Australian based customer service team on phone, email and facebook Sydney Sports Podiatrist Feet Ingrown Toenail Nail Pathology Deformity Foot Pronation 2019-06-20T22:00:50Z sydney-sports-podiatrist-feet-ingrown-toenail-nail-pathology-deformity-foot-pronation Why 1 in 10 people suffer from ingrown toenails worldwide An ingrown toenail is an unwelcome affliction that is actually extremely common - one in ten people suffer from them globally. This is because there are a number of different contributing causes to the development of the condition, including lifestyle habits, hereditary biomechanical issues, trauma and ageing. Mark Lin is Australia's leading sports podiatrist, Principal Sports Podiatrist and Director of Sydney-based Footwork Podiatry, and he says "most at risk are people who play a lot of sport, women who wear narrow shoes and older people who have difficulty in trimming their nails properly. RELATED ARTICLE: Roseville Sydney Sports Podiatry Foot Fungal Nail Infections Laser Therapy Solutions Lin describes key factors that cause an ingrown toenail: Trauma - stubbing or hurting the toe can change the nail shape, as can activities that involve repetitive pressure on the toes like kicking or landing on the toes. Nail pathology - disorders such as psoriasis and fungal infections can also cause abnormal changes to the shape of the nail. Improper trimming - the most common cause, cutting the nails too short can lead to the skin folding over the nail edge. Ill-fitting shoes - another common cause, compressing the toes in a narrow shoe encourages ingrown toenails. Toe deformity or foot pronation- if the big toe deviates towards the small toes or pronation of the foot causes unusual pressure on the side of the toenail, this can contribute to the development of an ingrown toenail. Pincer nails -this is an abnormal curvature of the nail, more common as people age, which makes the nail more susceptible to digging into the skin. Surgery is a very effective traditional treatment for ingrown toenails with a high success rate of eliminating the problem permanently, but may not be the treatment of choice for everyone. Nail bracing is a gentle alternative to surgery and a unique solution that corrects unhealthy toenail curvature. A nail brace is fitted to the nail, gently lifting the nail out of the nail fold over time. Simple - the brace is simply bonded across the surface of the nail, and does not need to be pre-stressed or shaped Quick- applied in seconds and delivers a speedy healing process Painless- the treated nail is gently lifted out of the nail fold. The BS nail brace system has been used successfully worldwide in over 30 countries and is a game changer in the treatment of ingrown toenails. RELATED ARTICLE: Sports Podiatrist and Muscles Specialist from Footwork Podiatry in Roseville Sydney CBD Explains Gait Feet and Running Injury Lin describes how the BS Nail Bracing system works: A flat fibreglass brace is mounted to the ingrown toenail, and the nail brace creates a spring tension that lifts and holds the nail out of the nail bed. By this process, both the nail and the nail bed are straightened. This is a painless and gentle procedure suitable for everyone, with symptomatic relief reported in 30 minutes or less. The tension of the brace works for approximately 3 - 4 weeks, after which a new brace is fitted to reinforce the changes to the shape of the nail. Significant improvement is usually seen after 2 to 4 applications, depending on the severity of the problem. Footwork Podiatryare the first and only trained providers in Sydney to offer this revolutionary treatment, as part of their commitment to staying at the forefront of lower limb treatment. Lin says, “Our unique hands-on treatment techniques are designed to provoke the body’s own healing response. We provide advanced manual therapies and alternative solutions for common problems like ingrown toenails, and our holistic and corrective care approach has a proven track record of success in resolving acute and chronic conditions where others have failed.

Sydney Sports Podiatrist Nail Bracing Feet Ingrown Toenail Nail Pathology Deformity Foot Pronation 2019-06-19T22:00:51Z sydney-sports-podiatrist-nail-bracing-feet-ingrown-toenail-nail-pathology-deformity-foot-pronation How to relieve an ingrown toenail at home without seeing a podiatrist An ingrown toenail is one of those pesky minor ailments that can cause a lot of pain, discomfort and inconvenience. Wearing enclosed shoes becomes problematic when even the slightest pressure on the affected toe can cause additional pain. It can make walking uncomfortable and rule out playing any kind of sport until the issue is resolved. What exactly is an ingrown toenail? Mark Lin is Australia's leading sports podiatrist, Principal Sports Podiatrist and Director of Sydney-based Footwork Podiatry, and he says "Improper nail trimming, tight-fitting footwear, trauma or pressure from the adjacent toes can cause the edge of the nail to grow into the skin, causing inflammation, swelling, infection and pain." RELATED ARTICLE: Sydney Leading and Affordable Sports Podiatrist Reveals Best Foot Pain Treatments In Australia Fortunately, there are some effective remedies you can try at home before seeing a podiatrist for this common ailment, says Lin. Prevention is always better than cure, so to avoid ingrown toenails, make sure to always cut straight across and not down into the sides, as this can cause the skin to grow over the edge of the nail. If you are in the habit of picking at your nails, stop doing that as picking can cause tiny splinters of nail to puncture the skin. Try soaking the affected foot in a basin of warm water with a few tablespoons of Epsom salts or a 1/4 cup of vinegar to reduce the swelling and pain. Vinegar has an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect and apple cider vinegar has antifungal properties too. Soak the foot for up to 20 minutes, three times a day and dry thoroughly afterwards. Avoid wearing tight-fitting socks and shoes that compress the toes together as this will only aggravate the condition. You can try placing a small cotton ball between the affected toes to relieve the pressure on the toenail. If you have tried all of the above without much relief, suffer from recurring incidents and would like an alternative to surgery, Footwork Podiatry is on hand to assist. Lin highly recommends a revolutionary new treatment modality called nail bracing. “Nail bracing is a unique solution to ingrown toenails, utilising a fibreglass brace that is fitted to the toenail. The brace corrects the curvature of the toenail, thereby lifting the toenail out of the nail fold gently over time, without pain." RELATED ARTICLE: Sports Podiatrist and Muscles Specialist from Footwork Podiatry in Roseville Sydney CBD Explains Gait Feet and Running Injury "This treatment technique has a high rate of success and we’ve consistently seen a vast improvement in patients with recurring incidents.
