Hello and Happy New Year!
It's not off to the best start with the COVID rate being so high and a nationwide lockdown. According to the new guidelines, non-essential massage services must pause until the lockdown ends. I have thus removed massage from the online booking for the time being.
Physiotherapy services include MSK physio and Mummy MOT. These services are medical and so permitted. I will be continuing to run those two services as normal unless my regulatory body instructs me to stop. If you feel that your physiotherapy is non-urgent and you would like to postpone, please do get in touch, and I can assist you.
A quick reminder. If you have an in-person physio appointment, then you must reschedule if you feel unwell. Whilst lockdown is in place, there will be no late cancellation fee if you cancel at short notice.
Virtual services will, of course, be available as usual as they involve no travel or contact.
Keep safe and well everyone,
Congratulations, mama! You made it through pregnancy and delivered your beautiful baby. During pregnancy you had your body stretched in ways you never thought possible. Now that you’re postpartum, you notice a big gap where your six-pack muscles used to be. You might be wondering what in the world happened to your abdomen. The answer is 'Diastasis Rectus Abdominus' (also knows as DRA).
There is no getting away from it, injuries are an inevitable part of life. Globally, millions of people, every year succumb to a sports-related trauma. A sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, and even plain bad habits might also be the cause of a new injury.
Nutrition may not be your priority whilst you convalesce, but it should be! If you are resting or in a cast, then eating will help you to maintain muscle mass whilst you are off your game. Furthermore, macronutrients have a significant influence on the healing process. The injured body needs raw material to repair the damage, and those materials come from the foods you eat. Let's look at the key dietary strategies you can put in place to augment your holistic recovery.
