Miércoles, 24 Febrero 2016 04:14

If health problems or injury make moving and going about your everyday life difficult a few sessions with a physiotherapist could be the answer Physiotherapy can make day-to-day activities easier. For example, it could help you if you have difficulties walking, climbing stairs, or getting in and out of bed. It can also help you if you have had a fall or are recovering from an operation,” explains London-based chartered physiotherapist, Sammy Margo.

“Physiotherapy can help anyone who is starting to see the effects of life’s wear and tear on their bodies. It can also treat or prevent physical problems that might be brewing as a result of years of poor posture or sitting badly,” says Sammy Margo. It is also invaluable for anyone with a specific health problem such as back and/or neck pain, arthritis, heart disease breathing problems, repetitive strain injury and many other conditions including osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease and incontinence.

You can see a physiotherapist in a dedicated clinic or they can visit you at home. At your first session you’ll discuss your problem and what caused it, have a physical examination to assess your flexibility, strength and range of movement. The physio will then devise a plan of care tailored to your needs. “We take a holistic viewpoint and look at the person’s whole life and daily activities taking into account for example if they are looking after elderly relatives and/or kids, where they live, how they get to work and so on,” says Sammy.
