“Relieve pain  Restore function  Move well”  The common association with physiotherapy is a reactive gesture to the onset of an ache, pain or trauma to the musculoskeletal system; an injury! Agreed, there is no more effective way to facilitating functional restoration than through seeking the professional assistance of a skilled physiotherapist. But the concept should not stop there. As a nation, I think we are starting to embrace the concept of exploring mental and physical well-being and therefore optimising our health. Whether your ‘function’ is sitting at the office10+hours straight, playing with the grandchildren on the weekend, or gaining a ballot spot in the London Marathon, we owe it to our bodies to strive for the resilience to perform these tasks in an optimal fashion, without the fear and inevitability of injury. Ask yourself the question, “do I move well?” The body will become better at whatever you do, or don’t do! If you don’t move your body will become better at not moving. If you move, your body will allow more movement. It seems a broad statement, but exploring the way we move should be as embracing as the way we explore our minds. Physical health should be more proactive than reactive. Therefore, ask yourself “how can I move better”. Physiotherapists are skilled in the biomechanical analysis of movement and can most certainly aid you in your journey to greater function. We know the evidence-based benefits of exercise but with a huge plethora of physical options out there, guidance and education is pivotal in avoidance of overload and causing further issues.
