Looking For ways to get Healthier & Fitter & Stronger?
One of the hidden effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the rise in the deconditioning among many people. This is particularly significant to people with health conditions, who also haven’t been able to access many of the health service over the past couple of years.
Because of this, we at Midlands Physiotherapy are getting behind a new, STRONGER MY WAY, and helping you get stronger.
Too few people were doing the recommended amount of strength training, which is twice a week, before the pandemic & that has only increased now.
We have some help for you
That’s why the CSP, (that’s our professional body, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists), began work with Sport England. In 2019 they started to explore how you could be better supported doing strengthening on a more regular basis.
The pandemic has only heightened the importance of this, and there’s now launched Stronger My Way, and we’re getting behind this campaign.
The campaign is built around a hub on the CSP website, but we are here to help you get into the great habit of doing some sort of strength training, whether that be at home, in the gym, or with a trainer.
On the STRONGER MY WAY website, you can get links to videos on how to start strengthening, articles delivering reassurance and advice that it’s safe to do it, and case studies from people who have benefited from getting stronger their way.
How we can help
There are also resources which are very good to help you track progress of your fitness program. And researchers suggested to us that physio staff, amongst other professionals, are a trusted source of advice on the issue of strengthening. We’re here to help you.
We understand that a Physiotherapists input is essential for some people, because a lot of people are concerned about training anyway, but we can give you the right advice on how you can move forward and benefit moving forward.
Physiotherapists, have a real opportunity to have a meaningful and positive impact on your health and your quality of life, to talk to you about strengthening you, supporting your performance, and placing you at the heart of your strengthening journey.
As we emerge from the pandemic, it’s critical we tackle deconditioning, because the consequences that it can have on the nation’s physical and mental health are well known and well documented.
Physiotherapy can have a real positive impact for you, and we’re here to help you start or continue your strengthening journey. If you need any advice about starting getting stronger for whatever that is personal to you, but you don’t know how to start, just pick up the phone. Call us in the clinic and start your free STRONGER MY WAY phone call where can you advise you how you are going to begin this and how you are going to move forward.
