Welcome to The Nightingale - Issue 6
Message from Mark: The young and young at heart are a key group who come to St Luke’s for care.
Active lifestyles are an important part of our physical and mental health. Whether it’s jogging, swimming, gym training, yoga, Tai Chi, team sports, tennis and the like, many Australians are very actively engaged in these sports. Sometimes, of course, these very enjoyable activities can result in us stressing or straining our bodies to the point where we suffer an injury and need to seek care...
You may have seen Jasmine’s face in the June 2017 edition of the Nightingale Magazine. Her full journey is below.
Since Jasmine was 18 months old, (pictured, now nine) she has endured pain in her right ear.
“Recurring ear infections started when Jasmine was a baby. This meant all sorts of pain, irritable behaviour and lots of antibiotics during her short lifetime,” said Jacqui, Jasmine’s mother.
At a young age Jasmine received grommet implants, which offered some relief, but when the grommets came out the pain and infections continued.
