Row Row Your Dragon Boat Down the Singapore River - IFC Physiotherapy Singapore

This week I wanted to dedicate our blog to our newest affiliates, the awesome British Dragon Boat team. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this hugely popular and ever expanding sport, Dragon boating is a 2000 year old form of rowing originating in China. One boat typically consists of 20 paddlers, 1 drummer or ‘caller’ to keep rhythm and 1 ‘sweep’ or steerer.

Are your glutes getting enough action? - IFC Physiotherapy Singapore

The gluteals are everyones favorite muscles these days. Not only is a great booty hugely in vogue (Nicki Minaj - Anaconda) but functionally and theraputically there is more focus on them than ever.

Anyone who works regularly with a trainer or therapist will be all to familiar with the command ‘activate your glutes’, so why all the fuss?

Sports Massage Therapy - IFC Physiotherapy Singapore

Every now and again most of us will enjoy having a massage; usually it’s the spa-type, that’s nice and relaxing. But what about a sports massage? Sports massage is not only ideal for someone engaging in regular physical activities such as playing a sport (professional or amateur), running or going to the gym, but it is equally as great for those with desk jobs who suffer from back, shoulder and neck tension.
