Your body is just like a car, it needs regular services and a bit TLC every now and then! Your physical health can take a turn at this time of year whilst you try and balance everything – the kids, your job, the Christmas shopping…Even without the added stress, the change of everyday activity over the holiday period can trigger injuries. Whether you are relaxing more than usual, sunbaking at the beach (see our blog on back pain following a beach trip with young children) or constantly sitting during a road trip or on an active getaway hiking and swimming, there’s the potential of injury. So, if you’re experiencing joint pain, muscle tension or just want to be in top nick for the Christmas season, it might be time for your service AKA a maintenance physiotherapy tune-up session.
A maintenance physiotherapy tune-up session can:
1. Provide maintenance therapy
If you have an established injury, you can book a tune-up session with Pivotal Motion to reevaluate your exercise program, mobility and rest requirements. It is also a great opportunity to learn new exercises that can be done when holidaying without access to a gym.
2. Prepare your body for holiday adventures
Keen to go kayaking, exploring cities or skiing these holidays, but not sure if your body’s up for it? At a tune-up session, our physios can assess your body and establish what you need to achieve before the holidays to maintain function and performance.
3. Make it through the silly season feeling refreshed
Pre-holiday tune-up sessions are essential for making the most out of a trip and returning to daily activities with ease. Returning to work with a sore back, shoulder or neck just isn’t our style here at Pivotal Motion. Give us a call to see how we can make your holidays the best, ever.
