Welcome to our 2015 Spring newsletter!

12th Annual Mississauga Marathon

Club Physio Plus is again teaming up with The Mississauga Marathon for the 12th annual race on the May 2-3rd weekend. We have been the official sports medicine clinic of the race since the beginning and are proud to have Russell Gunner as the medcial director again. 
 
We would like to remind you of your limitations. Run according to your training and do not push yourself unreasonably. It's a long time getting here and not worth an injury that can put you out of commission for the summer.
 
**Online Registration closes April 29th.

How to avoid gardening injuries

It's Spring time again and that can be symbolic for starting new projects, sewing new seeds and coming forth with new ideas. This is also a time to contemplate health and physical well-being too. A contributing factor this season is gardening. While it can help with conditions including dementia, stress and depression, gardening can also help people to control their weight and lower their high blood pressure. 
 
However, it is important to warm up before tackling your garden. Doing a simple stretch to limber up goes a long way.
