Kick back and relax, but don’t ignore the aches and pains!
Perhaps the opportunity to kick back and relax will reveal itself in the next few weeks as the warmth of the summer really starts. Sounds great!
Warmth and heat can be a great reliever of aches and pains. It is noted that exercise in warm water, usually called hydrotherapy or aqua therapy, can be a popular and effective treatment for pain relief for many patients with uncomfortable musculoskeletal conditions. With some of the summer heat we might expect in the Surrey Hills, the thought of cooling off I am sure is appealing.
Biomechanical analysis can help
Don’t hide from any aches and pains that you may have in your frame or muscles over the summer months. Early treatment, usually through a series of focused physiotherapy sessions, can help alleviate any issues you may have. Indeed, if not treated promptly and correctly, problems may escalate in the future, and may manifest themselves in the autumn and winter months when temperatures cool. In our experience, the problem you thought you had avoided can return with a vengeance, decreasing your mobility and agility. Biomechanical analysis can help in identifying areas of the body that may need help as time and age take their toll in our busy lives.
Series of therapy sessions
Even though the sun may be warming, whatever you do, don’t suffer in silence if you are feeling physical pain or finding new aches and pains that may be solved by consultation with and therapy from a qualified physiotherapist. Treatment might be a one-off consultation, or a series of therapy sessions (which is more common), to acupuncture, to hydrotherapy sessions. We are all different, with different needs for physio, and our treatments reflect this individual care approach.
