Fitness: Your body craves some TLC!


Most people wait until they are injured before seeing a physiotherapist. However, regular physiotherapy is key to preventing injury by improving posture, mobility and flexibility, addressing imbalances and working on balance, strength, stabilisation and range of motion.

The same way you would not wait until your car breaks down to have it serviced, you should not wait until your body breaks down to have physio. This is important whether or not you exercise as things like childbirth, sitting for long periods, working at a computer, poor posture and old injuries, to name a few, can affect your overall body alignment.

If you then add exercise to the mix, it can exacerbate underlying physiological issues. This is why, often, when people start to exercise, they become more susceptible to pain and injury. This is because over time, your body has learned to adapt and adjust to day to day movements. The additional pressure that exercise put on muscles, joints and ligaments can bring to light any underlying physiological problems.

Not only can your physiotherapist identify and address any imbalances, they can advise you on specific strength, alignment and stretching exercises to do, to mitigate these imbalances.
