With summer 2024 ahead, many factors can affect your musculoskeletal health

You might know we love a topical blog, and we were very pleased with our past series of Life Made Simple age-related notes. If you have not seen them, then please do take a moment to scroll down our (now lengthy) blog pages to see what might be considered as, inevitably, we all age. Indeed, perhaps read three of these topical blogs: the age range applicable to your current situation, and then two directly after, to see what changes might be experienced. There are of course many factors that can affect your musculoskeletal health.

With summer 2024 ahead, there is much to consider.

Four seasons

We think that the four seasons can make a difference to physiotherapy care needs, with most of us doing different things at different times of the year. We have noted this in past blogs, but with the summer approaching, we might entertain a more outdoorsy approach to our diaries, of course moving indoors again in the autumn and winter (although let’s enjoy the summer first when it arrives!). There are those who are able to escape the UK’s colder, damper months with foreign holidays, then spending time in the garden in the warmer months. Not unreasonable, and great if affordable.

Mind says yes, body says hmm!

Each season brings differences in actions, mobilities, exercise, any sporting activities, and so on. Even the Christmas and Easter holidays might mean time for family, which in itself might be a variance in activity types and levels. The point here is that activities usually change over a calendar year, and although the mind might be set for all that is planned ahead, the body might understandably throw up some objections, especially if what you’re doing is out of the ordinary or strenuous. It is common to find unexpected ailments cropping up.

Change occurs every year, like the seasons, both in ourselves physically, and our abilities as we age. Be ready for these, and perhaps note that it’s nothing personal, simply that the effects will be personal to you. That’s perhaps why you’re reading a physiotherapy blog, and our previous topical age-related blogs.
