Naren has some tips for taking care of yourself at home
As you all know dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic has altered all of our lives in many ways. These are unchartered waters but at the end of the day if you have taken that step to self-isolate you still need to make sure you keep your body moving. Sitting down and binge watching Netflix will help time pass by but it won’t be doing your body any favours!
Remember to stand up every 30 minutes and move around. Change of positions will help ensure your muscles keep mobile preventing you from any pain in places such as your lower back and neck.
If you are working from home make sure your laptop, desk, chair etc are set up well so as to avoid back and neck pain. We have a great range of videos on Facebook that cover this topic. (You may have to like the page first so you can see them).
If you are doing your own exercise program at home but are experiencing a few niggles as a result, be mindful of your technique. This is another reason to check out our library of exercises on Facebook. You will be able to see these exercises being performed by our physiotherapists and along the way they will give you advice and tip to keep in mind so that these exercises may be performed safely.
If you can’t get into the clinic we can help with Telehealth appointments.
Our physios will consult and prescribe home rehab exercises to help with your pain. Our focus is helping our clients be able to complete exercises correctly and ensuring that they have a program of treatment that will put them on the best path to recovery. Our easy online booking system through our website allows you to choose appointments that suit you and we will guide you through the set up for your appointment.
We are currently offering pre natal classes via telehealth! These classes are held on Friday from 12-1pm. Our classes involve core stability exercises, pelvic floor strengthening, safe stretches and mobility exercises. Our womens health physio Meredith runs these classes via Zoom. Call 3278 1186 to book.
