Medisport has been the victim of a malicious hacking incident. Unauthorised persons have broken through our comprehensive cyber security system and sent defamatory material to those on our Medisport database. Only contact information was obtained through this, such as name, address, contact numbers and email addresses. Medisport does not store and record any financial details or Medicare numbers of our clientele’s on file. We ask our clientele to be wary of any suspicious emails. Be particularly alert of potential phishing emails and telephone calls from anyone requesting personal details and avoid opening attachments from unknown senders on any virtual platform. We also suggest that you install or update your anti virus software.

Medisport apologises to our clientele for any undue stress or concern this attack on our database may have caused. Please know that the attack was reported to the NSW Police within minutes of its occurrence and an investigation is well underway.

Building Strong Bones

Building bone strength is essential during early life, but even more so as we get older and are more prone to brittle bones and osteoporosis. Luckily, we can build strong bones both on our plate and through our daily activities.

Calcium and Vitamin D are essential for strong bones. Choose to include calcium rich foods in your diet, such as yoghurt, milk, cheese, tinned salmon/sardines (with bones), tofu, almonds, sesame seeds, tahini and kale. Get your Vitamin D by spending some time in the sunshine everyday – take your lunch break outside or go for a morning walk. Make sure you get enough sun exposure (around 20 minutes per day) as Vitamin D is hard to get from food, but can be obtained through egg yolks, fish and mushrooms.

Weight bearing exercises are also a great way to build bone strength. Incorporate resistance and/or weight training into your gym routine along with walking/jogging for a bone-boosting workout.
