During these unprecedented times people have been digging their old bikes out of the garage and getting back into their lycra to venture outside for their daily dose of exercise. Seasoned cyclists can no longer stop at the cafe to enjoy cake and coffee, so instead are increasing their cycling volume to escape the rigours of homeschooling.
As clinicians in Australia, there is so often pressure to address patient volume and ensure that we are respectful of patient time and efficiency. Often we see Physiotherapy and Medical appointment times becoming shorter and shorter. On the one hand this may seem fantastic; we live in a fast paced world with expectations around quick results. Our lives exist on the push of a button, and it is difficult for our mindset to shift when it comes to certain areas that require time and thought.
