West Suffolk Physio

Ever thought we would be so restricted in our daily lives?

Being confined to your home does not have to impact on your health. As a private physiotherapy practice we are dedicated to supporting people’s wellbeing. So we would love to share some alternative ways of keeping active whilst at home. 

There are some jobs at home we all put off as we feel we haven’t got time. What better opportunity is there to now try to complete those small DIY tasks or decorating? Gardening and housework can also be a fulfilling activity and perhaps offer the time for more creativity or to declutter areas of our homes.

More formal exercise can be achieved using online exercise forums or get out that unused Wii Fit, exercise DVD, static bike or dance mat. If these don’t appeal then walking up and down the stairs a few more times than usual or trying small simple exercises in a room with a safe support to hold onto if necessary. Small knee bends, marching on the spot and raising onto your toes and back down may form part of a gentle exercise program to stop your legs getting stiff and will improve circulatory flow. If due to other medical conditions you cannot do these then exercises in sitting can still be very much of value as long as done regularly.

Checking in with friends and family is essential for our mental health and well-being even if this now has to be by phone or using our electronic devices. Perhaps discussing your exercise experiences will encourage others to try doing the same and add to the conversation topics. Comparing notes could help with motivation and to do more the next day.

Due to COVID-19 we are not offering face to face consultations, alternatively we are offering telephone and video consultations. Please contact us on 01284 713721 to speak with one of our Physiotherapists and see how they can support you!
