Plan to move Halswell kart track held up „„ By Emily O’Connell FRUSTRATED Halswell residents are pleading with the city council to give the green light for the kart track in their neighbourhood to be able to move. The resource consent for KartSport Canterbury’s $3.5 million move to McLeans Island was lodged in late October. But the process is now on hold. City council head of resource consents John Gibson said more information was needed from KartSport. He said more detail is required for numerous parts of the build such as traffic, noise and earthworks. Kay Stieller, who lives next door to KartSport on Carrs Rd, hopes the move happens soon. “As far as residents are concerned, we just want to get this thing sorted and we’re quite disappointed that there have been so many delays. It should have been done a couple of years ago,” she said. KartSport did not respond to Southern View for comment. KartSport was established on Carrs Reserve in Halswell in the early 1960s. Halswell Ward city councillor Anne Galloway said the club’s

activities had become the source of a number of noise complaints from residents in the early 1990s. She said the city council has been monitoring the club’s activities. Ms Stieller said the land her house is on is under constraint

until KartSport move – which means they’re unable to sell. “At the moment, the whole South of Awatea is under constraint – which puts our lives on hold because we can’t do things with our properties which we should be entitled to,” she said.

Cr Galloway said the land is under constraint because measurements taken in the area show noise levels, which would be experienced by new residents, as unacceptable. She said the track will become a district park.

“Relocating the track will free up residential land that could accommodate between 400 and 800 households,” Cr Galloway said. When asked what her advice is to residents, Cr Galloway said “there is a process that the city council need to work through. It will take time but staff are working diligently on this matter.” City council head of planning and strategic transport Richard Osborne said the proposed move has required a comprehensive consent application which has taken months to put together. “A lot of work also went into finding an alternative site that was suitable, and completing the South West Area Plan,” Mr Osborne said. He said the city council will fund the $3.5 million move under their Long Term Plan. “In addition, we are contributing up to a maximum of $100,000 towards the consenting costs,” Mr Osborne said. Cr Galloway said if the resource consent is approved, and there are no appeals, construction of the new facility in McLeans Island should begin next year.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THE DRUMS are beating on pages 1 and 3 this week – and again it’s fed up residents. Halswell people have had to put up with karts racing around the Carrs Rd track for decades. There’s light at the end of the tunnel with the kart club on the move to McLeans Island. But a delay in the resource consent process means it won’t happen for a while yet. On page 3, we look again at the heavy truck issue in nearby Lodestar Ave. But getting Halswell Ward city councillor Anne Galloway to specifically answer the questions is a misson. We wanted to know from Galloway if she would push her council colleagues to stop trucks on Lodestar if a bylaw is put in place. We’re still waiting for the answer. – Barry Clarke

Decision looms on truck issue „„ By Emily O’Connell HALSWELL WARD city councillor Anne Galloway won’t say if she will use her influence to stop heavy trucks driving through residential streets in Wigram Skies. The Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, which would give the city council the ability to restrict heavy vehicles on certain roads, will go to the city council next week for approval. If the bylaw Anne is approved, Galloway the city council will then consider placing a restriction on Lodestar Ave. When asked specifically yesterday by Southern View whether she will push for heavy trucks to be stopped, Cr Galloway would only say she’s been working with Wigram MP Megan Woods and city council staff “to address the concerns of all the residents who are impacted.” “I’ve reassured residents through emails, phone calls and visits that I am taking the concerns seriously and will be

using all tools available to us to manage these,” she said. Dr Woods and Cr Galloway met on Friday to discuss the issues on Lodestar Ave. Two weeks ago Cr Galloway told Southern View she doubted the new bylaw will be of any use. “It seems that speed is the issue and the recommendation is for police to get more involved in monitoring this,” Cr Galloway said. But then Galloway tempered

her stance, sending Western News an email saying the bylaw can work. “There definitely is still hope that it can be used to prevent heavy trucks along Lodestar. Staff cannot consider it as an option until it is passed,” Cr Galloway said. Cr Galloway is now saying she’s thrilled “things are moving so quickly” and she hopes the bylaw is passed. She said the city council’s

Heavy Vehicle Parking in Residential Area Policy is another tool which can be used to address the Lodestar Ave situation. One resident with a disabled daughter, who told Southern View last week she will have to sell up, has now said she would stay if a restriction is placed on Lodestar Ave. Wanda Waites lives on the corner of Lodestar and Corsair Dr and said “the trucks are driving me mad.” They wake her daughter Tara up at 5am every day of the week. Cr Galloway visited Ms Waites on Thursday evening offering her reassurance. Ms Waites said the visit was “lovely” and she can see Cr Galloway is doing her best. Lady Wigram Retirement Village residents, which has also been campaigning to stop the trucks, said they get woken up at 4.30am. Retirement village residents have been lobbying since April when they met with Cr Galloway and Dr Woods asking for a bylaw to stop trucks being allowed to drive through Lodestar Ave. It’s a short cut to work sites in the area. •Readers react page 5

In Brief OPAWA CAFE BREAK-IN A 44-year-old has been charged with wilful damage after he allegedly broke into a business in Opawa early on Friday morning. The Opawa Cafe, located in a block of shops on Opawa Rd, had a glass door smashed at about 12.50am. Police responded to a report of the break-in and arrived to find the alleged offender running away from the property. WIGRAM BUS STOPS The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board will discuss whether to approve four new bus stops in Wigram at its meeting tonight. They would be located on the No 100 bus route. The proposed locations are Deal St, The Runway, Corsair Drive and Keene St. The city council staff recommendation is to approve the stops. HALSWELL XMAS TREE The Halswell Community Project is setting up a Christmas gift tree at the Halswell Hub on Halswell Rd. People can donate gifts and food items, which will be given to the City Mission to distribute to families in need at Christmas. Goods will be accepted from next week onwards.

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF VET MICHELE Last month, our super vet nurse Megan wrote about what a nurses day is like at our clinic so I thought I’d give you a little insight into one of my marathon 12 hour Tuesdays, that must start with a flat white! I typically arrive in after 9am due to organizing our teenage lads for school in the morning and walking Lola before our big 12 hour Tuesday. I will then assess, liase with the hospital nurse and devise a plan for any of my sick hospital patients from the previous day. Sometimes I will pass an intensive care patient of mine onto Catherine if my day is full surgically. If there is time before consulting I will phone clients with patient updates or call them in the early afternoon when I’ve finished consulting. Typically I consult seeing patients for 3-4 hours in the morning and then again another 3 hours during the evening. By the time Tuesdays rock around my consulting schedule is almost full so when distressed clients phone with a very sick pet, obviously we will see them but they have to be squeezed into an already full block of consulting. If on arrival they are in urgent need of attention, either I will see them or one of our expert nurses will triage the patient, often take bloods, place a catheter and advise me of their findings. Every patient that rings is seen that day and often we see patients from other clinics because they cant be seen that day at their own Practice. It is common place that during my morning consults I have admitted sick patients for either blood testing, intravenous fluids, xrays or ultrasounds, dentistry, exploratory surgeries, or just observation. I will check on these patients progress, review any blood test results or findings, ring their owners if necessary and work out a treatment plan with the hospital nurse for that day. Once the sickies are dealt with, I turn my attention to the surgical board in which all my surgeries are highlighted in green pen! This past Tuesday was a little insane... Heres my list for that day1. Right Stifle surgery in a sweet 1 year old Golden Retriever called “Bonnie” to repair ruptured ACL ligaments. Bonnie blew her ACL ligaments in both stifles while out exercising with other dogs, so the left is yet to be repaired in 2 weeks depending on how she’s coping after this surgery. 2. A right femoral pinning and wiring in a young cat “Simba” to repair a fractured femur probably caused by a collision with a car. 3. Full shoulder and elbow, spinal, lumbar and hip xrays in Murphy, a 12 year old chocolate Labrador with an annoying persistent right foreleg lameness. 4. A sick, lethargic Chinchilla called Pickles who needed syringe feeding through the day. 5. A Caesarian in a 2 year old Pug called “Geraldine”, who gave birth to 1 live puppy, with 2 unfortunately dying. All in all I have absolutely no time to eat, drink or get into any trouble!! All the above need to be finished with and owners rung by 4pm when I start all over again with consults. Oh I forgot to mention that somewhere in the

day I have a board full of messages to call clients regarding their pets blood or pathology Geraldine and her one little puppy. results, medications requirements, booking in surgeries, queries from other vets or just general advice inquiries. We also look after sick animals for the SPCA and Cats Protection league. We will get a call alerting us to how far away they are and what sort of patient we are seeing, whether a medical or surgical case. That can happen anytime in our day so we fit these consultations around everything else. I feel very good being able to help these less fortunate animals and hopefully give them a chance at recovery and a great life. A day in MY LIFE is a hugely busy, fast paced one where I need to make so many important decisions in a day on the health and well being of the patients in my care. There is no time to second guess yourself, communication between my staff and my clients is key and I need to be very organized and able to prioritise all the patients in my care needing my help. We are so fortunate at McMaster & Heap to have such a highly skilled, clever and practical group of vets and nurses to be able to bounce ideas off when a difficult case needs a plan. Honestly I LOVE my job – actually it’s a priviledge to be able to help animals in the way we can and do. As you can see, every day is extremely different, very challenging at times with difficult medical cases or surgeries but the buck stops with me so to speak. I leave after my 12 hour shift very tired and hungry! But with a big smile on my face knowing that I’ve made a difference in many animals lives that day and so have my fabulous team.

News Village may get liquor ban Constable Conal Ross who patrols the Linwood area said the incidents of anti-social behaviour from drinking and smoking synthetic drugs are becoming more “frequent.” From business owners, workers and shoppers feeling unsafe and no longer shopping at all – Constable Ross said the behaviour is taking its toll and with police only able to issue tickets to those using drugs, its not enough. A local shop owner, who did not want to be named, said a ban would stop profits diving. It has been a long standing issue for three or four years. “It’s also just the hanging outside . . . we’ve had customers ringing up and say we love your shop but we’re not coming in anymore,” he said. Drinking is “definitely” putting shoppers off, according to supermarket owner Choy Ming Lee. “We call the police but they say they can’t do anything,” he said. A liquor ban will give police the power to finally do something, Mr Lee said. City councillor Deon Swiggs said this had been an issue on his radar since he was first elected more than a year ago. “We’ve been trying to deal with

A police spokeswoman said there has been anti-social behaviour in the area for a long time. “Police believe alcohol is one of a number of factors at play. A liquor ban has been suggested as one way of reducing alcoholrelated harm in the area,” she said. As the matter is now with the city council, she said it would

victions will only make it harder for them to get jobs. It’s just moving the problem elsewhere, not solving anything. “We all make mistakes. We all want a job. But its the background . . . there are a lot of reasons that turn guys to the bottle or the can to cope,” he said. Mr Hauwai said most of the beggars, don’t want to be there either. “It’s a pride thing. It’s degrading.” The pair are working with the city council to set up a drop-in centre for the area. Mr Wallace said it would give streeties an opportunity to have access to education, work skills and even simple things like fixing their bicycles. “That’ll get rid of us. It’ll give us somewhere to go,” Mr Wallace said. “We don’t need a liquor ban. What we need is a second chance and a lot of hope.” But Mr Wallace and Mr Hauwai said they do understand where the shops are coming from. “But why arrest a person because they are drinking. I understand if he’s fighting or hitting someone but not just drinking,” Mr Wallace said. The liquor ban will go before the city council at a meeting in the coming months.

News Night-time restrictions approved „„ By Andrew King NIGHT-TIME restrictions on Huntsbury Hill to curb excessive noise, drug use and littering have been approved by the city council. Residents of Vista Pl and Roystone Way have been besieged by young drivers who park up at the scenic spots to socialise, listen to loud music and smoke cannabis. On Thursday, the city council approved changes to both roads that ban vehicles under 3500kg between 10pm and 5am. The ban does not include vehicles owned by a resident or a “bona fide visitor”. Those caught parking there could be fined up to $750, with the ban enforced by police. Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter said it was the best solution for the residents. “We looked at a few options with the residents, police and city council staff and this is what we have come up with,” she said. She said now the project has been green lit, it was up to the contractor how fast the signs will be installed. Ms Potter previously said it was not about banning young people from enjoying the view and listening to music, but protecting residents from unwanted distur-

bances. “We would like to think there are places around the hills to park up, listen to music and enjoy the view, just where it is not disrupting residents,” she said. The approval comes after Southern View reported in June residents were fed up with youths congregating in vehicles on the scenic streets at night, playing loud music, smoking bongs, shouting and partying. Two options were considered by the board: Install the restrictions, or do nothing. Consultation on the proposal was carried out between August 9-25, and 62 people responded with 85 per cent in support of the restrictions. One person did not support the idea, saying it would only move the problem to other parts of the city. Others said it was long overdue and applauded the restrictions. It will cost about $2000 for the installation of signage and will be paid for by the city council’s traffic engineering fund, Ms Potter said. NIGHT-TIME BAN: The city council has approved nighttime restrictions on two Huntsbury Hill roads to give residents some peace and quiet.

Our pupils have many opportunities to participate in a wide range of education activities including Technology; ICT; Music; Drama; Education Outside The Classroom; Leadership roles; Camps; Academic challenges; and Sports. Our pupils develop a wide range of skills which helps them develop educationally, socially, emotionally and physically during their time with us. Just a few of the opportunities our pupils have experienced this year are as follows:

China Trip

Sports

Education New Zealand supported our trip to China this year. Our China Sister School, Chengdu Bilingual Experimental School, organised homestays and schooling for our pupils. Emma, Kendall, Ashtyn, Dante and Grace had the most amazing experience while they were away. They really enjoyed experiencing new sights, sounds, tasting different types of food and learning about the culture and people of China.

We participate in a large variety of sports including: Netball; Football; Cross Country; Skiing; Swimming; Rugby; Basketball; Waterpolo; Touch Rugby; Korf Ball; Table Tennis; Badminton; Athletics and Gymnastics. We also compete in the Canterbury Association of Intermediate and Middle Schooling competitions. Our school is well known for the courtesy, co-operation and sportsmanship of our teams and we value this highly. Some of the highlights this year are as follows:

Education Outside the Classroom

Bowls Tournament - we had 5 of 6 teams finish in the top three for their categories and one team winning theirs;

We visit many different places within our community such as Canterbury Museum, Riccarton House and the Art Gallery. We also offer class camps for our Year 7 and Year 8 pupils. This year our Year 7’s camped at Purau Bay where they experienced canoeing, abseiling and camping skills, along with getting to know their class and developing friendships.

Boys’ Basketball team won their competition for the 4th year in a row in the Friday night competition; Girls’ Basketball team was awarded the fair play award for the South Island Tournament;

Our Year 8 pupils have just returned from the Otago Rail Trail and Wellington camps. These camps both provide great opportunities for learning and personal development.

Kirkwood Badminton Team finished 3rd in the South Island Tournament; Table Tennis Kirkwood Team finished 3rd in the Winter Weekly Sport.

Technology & ICT

School Production

Our on-site technology centre provides our pupils with a range of creative learning experiences in different areas: Foods; Electronics and Materials (metal, wood, fabric and plastic). Our pupils have created a large variety of work this year. We also participate in Robofest, Future in Tech programme, Food competitions, Robotics, EPro8, 3D printing, Upcycling and Maori Carving.

Every second year we produce a school performance for all interested pupils. This year our production was called ‘Off White and the Seven Scaffolders’.

Many of our pupils have been selected to represent Canterbury and/or have been selected for the Nationals in various sports which makes our school proud.

Programmes focus on Planning for Practice, Brief Development and Outcome Evaluation. We have pods of touch screen laptops, ordinary laptops and Chromebooks for classroom use to enable pupils to develop their skills. Pupils are also welcome to bring their own technology. More pupils are doing this each year. We recommend that parents check which devices are used at the High School they think their children will be attending.

Blues Awards • Outstanding achievements, whether they are personal or at school, are celebrated via our Blues Awards system. • Our students can achieve a Blues Award in various areas such as Cultural, Sports and Academic. • An Outstanding Elite Blues Award may be achieved if a student has achieved an Academic, Cultural and a Sporting Blue. • There are quite strict criteria for receiving a Blue and these are outlined on our website www.kirkwood.school.nz

Giving your community a voice Halswell Residents’ Association member Faye Parfitt talks about the benefits of the group and how you too can make a difference in your neighbourhood Have you ever wondered what relevance your local residents group has for you? Have you ever wondered how to get an issue in your com-

munity heard by the decision makers? The people who make up your local resident group are there to ensure that key people are informed about things that matter to residents in the community.

The Halswell Residents’ Association is a group of people from the community who seek to ensure that the Halswell community has a voice where it matters – community board, city council, Environment Canterbury, New Zealand Transport Agency, central government – ensuring that issues get filtered to the decision makers, and the wonderful things that make our place such a preferred place to live are maintained. It’s not an onerous task – it’s a rewarding one. The residents

association has had input over the years in the establishment of facilities like our wonderful new library, the quarry park, an enviable domain and sports fields, successful subdivisions, business facilities, pedestrian and cycle safety, and there’s continuing input into making our roads safer for everyone. Some members have participated for 20 years, and others commit for a short time, but any time spent is valued, and valuable to the whole Halswell community.

It only takes a couple of hours once a month. Visitors are always welcome, and new members absolutely vital to the future of the association. So, if you like to know ‘first-hand’ what is ‘actually’ happening in your community’, and interested in having input into the way Halswell proceeds into tomorrow, just turn up to a meeting in the St Mary’s Church Hall any last Monday of the month, or phone David Hawke at secretary.hra@gmail.com, you would be very welcome.

Readers react on Star.Kiwi Rise Up Christchurch’s Facebook page to Wanda Waite’s dilemma with the noisy trucks on Lodestar Ave. The issue made international headlines when prominent Lady Wigram Retirement Village owner and businessman, John Tooby, verbally abused his elderly tenants after they placed a sign on their fence asking truck drivers to stop using their road

Denise Andersen – Luxury problems some people whine about anything. Rachel Jennings – Sucks. Heather Bevan – When I visited Whitby, north of Wellington, the other day, I noted the new Transmission Gully road was going through that suburb and so close to many beautiful homes. I remarked how it would possibly bring down the value of the homes as it will be very noisy with trucks rumbling through at all hours of the day and night, and these homes have not been built with double glazing.

Pamela Neil – Who was there first . . . the road or the facility? There is a thing called double glazing which is very effective against road noise. Valmae Hughan – Isn’t that just normal life? We live near Yaldhurst Rd – hear them night and day. Just get used to it. Neno Pullan – Unfortunately we live in a city that’s being rebuilt. Every day somewhere people are being disturbed due to trucks, hammers, graders, concrete mixers, so on so on. There are some very good ear plugs around might be worth investing in.

Lisa Carter - Trucks are part of life, let’s face it everything in your home would have been in a truck at one point before it got to you. Spare a thought for the drivers who listen to that noise for hours in a day and those who work around loading and unloading trucks. Your complaints are minor, I live on a main road and get trucks and milk tankers all night, its 70km/h outside mine and they do more like 100km/h. They are doing a job, you would still be moaning if there was no food on the shelves at the supermarket and you couldn’t go shopping for clothes and shoes. Give me a break.

Local MP & Cabinet Minister deals with wide-ranging issues As the MP for the Wigram electorate, a position she has held since 2011, and as a member of the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board from 2004-2007, Labour’s Megan Woods has built up strong relationships with people and organisations in the area, and has developed an in-depth understanding of the issues facing people living there. “Our electorate office is a very busy office. There are a wide range of issues that come through the office, and I’m very grateful for my wonderful staff and the work they do,” Megan says. “For example, we help people with housing issues, or problems they may be having with a government department, or help them find ways to deal with financial hardship. “I see my role as being like a matchmaker, linking people with the groups and organisations that can help them. I also enjoy working with community groups and supporting them when they have great ideas, like planting a community garden.” Visiting schools in her electorate is something else Megan enjoys, and recently,

she was a guest at Sacred Heart Addington primary school for their Book Day, when she read to them from her favourite book, The Magic Faraway Tree. She is also involved with several groups that are in the process of establishing a new primary school in the electorate. As a result of the recent General Election, Megan is now a Cabinet Minister with

responsibility for several portfolios – Christchurch Regeneration, Earthquake Commission, Energy and Resources, and Research, Science and Innovation. In her capacity as EQC Minister, she is passionate about helping people still dealing with earthquake issues to have their EQC and insurance claims settled. “We need to address how difficult the last

seven years have been for people,” she says. “It’s also important to deal with issues around mental health, and provide wellbeing support for children affected. The Government is providing resources for schools in Christchurch for this purpose.” The Wigram electorate office is located on the corner of Rowley and McCarthy streets, Hoon Hay. Phone 338 6347.

GREAT food

Y ou r fre s h food pe op le

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... HOW TO BARBECUE PERFECT RIBEYE STEAK

AVOCADO AND CARAMELISED PINEAPPLE SALAD

Ingredients

Ingredients

Ribeye steaks, at least an 1.5 inches thick Olive oil Salt Fresh ground black pepper

2 Tbsp Brown sugar ½ Pineapple, peeled 2 Tbsp Butter 3 Avocados, firm but ripe ½ Red onion 100g Blue cheese, creamy ½ Red chilli 2 cups Salad leaves, washed

Directions Preheat your grill to high heat. If you have a sear burner and a steak that is more than an inch thick, get one side of the grill going at about medium-high in case you need to cook it through a little more after the sear. Remove the ribeye steaks from their packaging and rub them down with some olive oil and then coat a generous amount of salt and freshly ground black pepper. The olive oil provides just enough fat to help the salt and pepper create a great, caramelised crust. Clean and lubricate your grill grates with some cooking oil on a rolled up piece of paper towel (using tongs, of course). Place the ribeye steaks on the hottest part of the grill and then stand ready with the tongs.

Dressing 1 Orange, zest and juice 1 Chilli, finely chopped 1 tsp Ground cumin 4 Tbsp Avocado oil 1 to taste Salt & freshly ground pepper At this point, you are on flareup watch. The fat dripping off of the steaks could create a flare-up. If a flare-up occurs and doesn’t go away in a few seconds, simply use your tongs to slide the steaks away from the open flame until the flame dies down and then move them back over the heat. Continue to grill with the lid open for about 4-6min. Flip the steaks over onto the

other side, still over the hottest part of the grill. Grill the ribeye steaks for an additional 4-6min on the other side, lid open, for a medium-rare delicious steak. Remove the steaks from the grill and allow to rest for 5min before serving. The resting period is important so that the juices don’t run out when you cut into the ribeye, so be patient.

THE BEST: Cashmere High celebrate winning in the first ever South Island secondary school ultimate frisbee championships. PHOTOS: MORGAN JONES

First frisbee title goes to Cashmere „„ By Andrew King CASHMERE HIGH have won the inaugural South Island secondary school ultimate frisbee championships known as the ‘Ultimate Champs’. Competing against five other teams at Centennial Park in Spreydon, Cashmere took home the top prize after a hard-fought final against Darfield High. Shirley Boys’ High, Riccarton High, a combined team and a second team from Darfield were also involved in the competition. Cashmere’s Gordon Forrest was named the most spirited player for the tournament, Riccarton’s Ben Cruse was the

men’s most valuable player and Darfield’s Stephanie McKenzie was the woman’s MVP. Shirley Boys’ High coach Scott Edwards also helped coach the Cashmere side and said it was a fantastic event and great to grow the sport. “In the last two years, the high school scene has grown a lot. There were a lot of parents that came down to watch and all the players hung around to watch the final,” he said. He said with no official tournament in the South Island, it was good to get something like this off the ground to keep up with their North Island counterparts.

So what is ultimate frisbee? •Normally, it is played on a 70m x 50m field with seven players on each team. •The goal is to get the frisbee into the opposition’s ‘end zone’ to score a point. •The first team to 13 wins. •Teams can be made up of both men and women. •Each game runs for 45min. •The Ultimate Champs were played with only five-aside, so the field dimensions were shortened to 50m x 20m, with 30min pool games and 45min semis and finals.

ELEVATION: Cashmere and Darfield players competed for right to be named the best ultimate frisbee team in the South Island.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests that a major part of the pain could be due to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis. “Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason for the pain may be the muscles around the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back muscle could also be the cause, as shown in the image. Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old client with severe arthritis who walked with a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight through my right leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she was walking with her stick but without the severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors that made her muscles spasm but the other was that older people move less and the flexed position the hip is in when we sit is particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that although the client was 89 and could have been “given up on” or told to live with the pain, she made a difference to

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

her health and wellbeing. At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques (massage and triggerpoint deactivation techniques) are used to release the muscles. The client also gets a home exercise program designed to mobilize and stretch the hip, strengthen the important core muscles and increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches the hip in all directions whilst the client is able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients. In many cases having the muscles released and being taught how to maintain it, is enough to stay on top of the problem. If severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some

maintenance therapy may be necessary, but that is often more affordable and, for older patients, better tolerated than surgery. In very few treatments the client will know if it is going to work for them or not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

USE THE RED CROSS ADVANTAGE - COMPREHENSIVE FIRST AID, ESSENTIAL FIRST AID, REVALIDATION OR TAILORED TRAINING TO SUIT yOU AT yOUR PLACE OR OURS.

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.
