Lane Cove Week in Review 14th to 20th October 2018

    A wet week in Lane Cove with numerous thunderstorms.  This means less people out and about shopping in Lane Cove.   Lane Cove businesses are saying October has been a terrible month for them.  Please shop local. Why not attend the Lane Cove Shopping day on 26th October 2018?

    More and More and More Developments

    More units to hit the Lane Cove and Greenwich area. The Northside Clinic on Greenwich Road is to be sold to developers. This is another example of using a gateway process to have more units approved. The Developers go straight to the NSW Department of Planning and bypass the Lane Cove Council. Developments like this will put more strain on local schools, local roads and River Road (which already gets over 20 000 vehicles a day).  Believe it or not but one developer is advertising the St Leonards area as “turning St Leonards into Chatswood”.

    This is another reason why you should attend the Lane Cove Planning Alliance forum on development on 30th October. Register here…/lane-cove-planning-forum-lane-c…/

    A technician in the front row from the St George Rugby Club in Sydney, Ron debuted for the Wallabies against Tonga at the SCG in 1973 and went on represent his country in 18 Tests.

    After his playing days, Ron gave back to his beloved sport in an honorary capacity as an administrator.

    This week’s week in review sponsored by Lane Cove Physio

    Are you a Keen Swimmer?

    Do you experience shoulder or any joint/muscle pain whilst swimming? Are you a competitive swimmer and looking for a way to improve your times?

    Monique Bain, elite swimmer and physio at Lane Cove Physio is offering a BULK BILLED initial screening (i.e. no out of pocket expense after health cover claim) for swimmers, in time for the competitive swimming and ocean swimming season.

    Whether you are looking at correcting your stroke or improving your times, you can benefit from a physiotherapist screening the critical requirements of joint range of motion as well as strength and flexibility. Unknown deficits in these areas can increase your chance of injury due to the repetitive nature of swimming and demands of the sport.

    After the screening, the physiotherapists will provide you with a swimmer’s profile highlighting any deficiencies in strength, joint mobility and muscle flexibility. You can then work with our experienced physiotherapists and exercise physiologist throughout the season to optimize any deficiencies and provide you with the best swimming outcomes. In addition, any issues can be highlighted to your swimming coach so everyone is working together to make you a better swimmer!

    Call Lane Cove Physio now to book in for your FREE (Bulk billed private health) swimmer’s assessment with Monique NOW (02 9428 5772).
