We’re thrilled to welcome a new chiropractor to VPCC: Dr Paije Cox.
Born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, Paije Cox moved to Melbourne to study Chiropractic at RMIT University for five years. Like many students Paije came home during her summer holidays and supplemented her income by working in restaurants and cellar doors in the Barossa Valley. Working in these wineries benefitted Paije by increasing her passion for cooking good food and drinking good wine.
While in her fifth year Paije was one of three students chosen from her year level to travel to Cambodia to treat children in orphanages, land mine victims, and people with polio as well has having the opportunity to perform humanitarian duties whilst there. This, along with paediatric clinic duty, ignited Paije’s keen interest in treating children and pregnant women.
Since graduating Paije has been working in Melrose Park and volunteering as a trainer at Lobethal Football Club. Her hobbies include singing, playing piano, working out at the gym, and painting. She now lives in Magill with her partner Tom and her pet lorikeet Hercules.
Dr David Coppi has headed off overseas for some well-deserved R&R, and when he returns he will be pursuing other interests elsewhere.
Dr Coppi has been a wonderful team member and we thank him for his years of effort, concern and care. He will be missed, and we wish him all the very best for the future as he embarks on the next phase of his professional life.
This year’s National Chiropractic Care Week theme asks: Which posture are you? Chiropractors at Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic will be using the month of May to help patients, old and new, review their posture and identify the posture profile that most matches theirs.
Are you a multi-tasking mum, office worker, active retiree or even an active kid?
Each of these common lifestyles brings with them a range of potentially punishing postures, such as slouching, hunching or twisting, which can take their toll on your spine.
In fact, up to 90 per cent of people have poor posture, which puts extra pressure on the spine and can lead to tension, soreness, headaches, back pain and fatigue. The good news is that many postural issues can be corrected and sometimes even reversed.
Use National Chiropractic Care Week (May 24 to 30) as a prompt to get in tune with your body and make an appointment for a posture assessment, advice and exercises to help you make the most of your posture.
You can also visit the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia’s new website – whatsyourposture.com.au – for the low down on common postural problems, including self assessment tools and information on how chiropractic care works to help people maintain a health spine for a healthier life.
We are very sad to farewell Julie Broome, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank Julie for her contribution to the clinic—her warmness, professional manner, efficiency and sense of humour will be missed. We would like to wish her the very best of health now and in the future.
At the same time we are very happy to introduce Rose Pullen who joins our CA team. Please join us in welcoming her, and please say hello!
Just a reminder – road closures due to the Clipsal 500 are in effect as of Friday February 19, and this may affect your travel times to and from the clinic. Roads affected are:
- Wakefield St and Dequetteville Tce – closed to through traffic
- Fullarton Rd – reduced to single lanes north and south
Please remember there is no right turn from Fullarton Rd on to Watson Ave or Alexandra Ave. Right turn is permitted at the lights on Grant Ave.
The clinic is unaffected and parking is still available on Watson Ave and under the building (accessible from Fullarton Rd).
It is with much excitement that we announce the return of Dr Tania Kent to practice on a limited basis. Tania has taken time out to be a fabulous mum to three wonderful children. She will be focusing predominantly on women’s health and chiropractic care for kids. Watch this space in 2010 for adjusting times for Tania.
Our thanks go to all of you who donated money to Movember. Close to $1000 was raised, and will be used by Beyond Blue and Prostate Foundation of Australia for Men’s Health.
