The 12 ways of avoiding the physio this Christmas!
3) Christmas can often involve long car journeys – ensure your seat is as horizontal as possible and is slid back far enough so that your thigh is in contact with the seat when the clutch is down. Remember to adjust the lumbar support for a comfortable Christmas! More tips at https://www.central-health.com/blog/ten-top-tips-healthier-happier-driving/
4) Put salt on your front path. We see a large number of sprains during the winter months due to falling on slippery and icy ground – make sure you’re not one of them.
5) Cut your back some slack and bend your knees when putting your turkey in the oven. Better still, get someone to help you. It’s surprising the number of people who strain their back in this way ahead of feeding the masses.
6) Mind your step! In the frenzy of present opening, with paper and toys everywhere, it’s easy for the stairs to become hazardous places to be – keep them as clear as possible.
7) Who thought crackers could be dangerous? Every year, people break their arms pulling crackers – make sure the space is clear behind you when your elbow goes careering backwards.
8) If Father Christmas brings you a bicycle this Christmas, optimise your health and performance by making sure you set it up correctly. CHP can help with this, and there are also lots more tips on our homepage “51 Ways to increase cycling fitness”
9) The afternoon nap. An essential part of Christmas after a huge lunch. Use a comfy cushion as you snooze – avoid the neck ache that comes with a bobbing head!
10) When someone suggests party games, remember your limits after a few drinks. A colleague of ours badly hurt her knee playing the cornflake packet game at the Christmas party, and she’s not proud of that fact!
At our Chancery Lane clinic we have had an increasingly busy autumn with all of our Pilates Classes well attended. We continue to run beginners, improvers and
intermediate classes, as well as ante-natal Pilates. Our monthly free Pilates Taster Sessions have also proved very popular, with more and more people trying out classes and then becoming regular attendees.The New Year will bring a range of new Pilates Classes to Chancery Lane. We hope to provide “Postural Pilates” classes for more targeted strengthening of those problem areas of the upper and lower back, as well as “Pilates for Runners” in order to give more specific conditioning and help complement training programmes. These new classes will be 45-minutes long and run in 6 week blocks. Watch this space for more details!
