Regular exercise is vital to keep us fit and healthy. Sometimes our jobs give us all the exercise we need, but for others, the daily routines do not provide the regular workout our bodies need to stay healthy. Exercise is important to recover from injury and stay healthy. A regular workout should include some flexibility, strength and stamina work into a variety of different positions, stretching and strengthening through range!
At Abbey Physiotherapy we are keen to promote prevention of injury as well as treating injuries and preventing re-occurence. We work closely with a number of local sports clubs in Nuneaton and the surrounding areas of Bedworth, Coventry and Atherstone. A regular sports massage and review of exercises can help reduce the risk of injury
One of our directors Alison is often found taking part in some sporting challenge, often for charity. This has included triathlons and long distance open water swimming! In addition we have personal involvement in a number of local clubs. Come and talk to us if you need help putting together a dedicated exercise program specific to your sport. We can cover the basics in preparation for sporting activity, ensuring that the body has enough flexibility and strength to take part in your chosen activity without suffering injury and maximising performance
Your Physiotherapist will be able to assess your current fitness levels and devise a progressive exercise plan to make the steps from where you are now to where you want to be. They will also be able to give you some guidance on a timetable for recovery so you can plan for that important event, which maybe the London Marathon or walking your child to school!!!!
Your programme can be adapted to be undertaken at home, in the gym, pool or park, using whatever equipment you have at your disposal! Regular reviews of your progress will result in your Physiotherapist correcting your technique where necessary and adapting the intensity to stay focussed on achieving the end goal!
If you are not very confident to start an exercise programme, we are able to refer you to a local service called 'Fitter Futures' who can offer support for new starters to exercise
