World Physiotherapy Day takes place on Thursday, September 8th and highlights the importance of partaking in physical activity on a regular basis and the benefits this has on our lives.
We now have consistent research confirming the benefits of 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise/physical activity:
We require 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise per week to achieve the positive benefits listed above. The good news is that this can be achieved in “bite size” 10 minute chunks. To achieve all the effects the activity must include some cardio vascular and resistance elements.
There are many ways to make sure that you get adequate physical exercise on a daily basis no matter your daily schedule, age, or ability.
Some of the biggest barriers to participating in physical activity are existing aches and pains and fear of making them worse. We can evaluate your existing problems and guide on a paced activity programme. At Ballsbridge Physio, we can advise on general fitness and strengthening exercise. We have experience on guiding patients through long-term illness while maintaining their fitness. If you would like to book an appointment, you can get in contact with us here.
