Health and well-being is made up of four factors, physical, intellectual, emotional and social. How are you taking care of yourself?
We tend to think of health as a physical thing, while wellbeing a little more complex, but they are without doubt linked. When we are more active it can have a very positive impact on our emotional wellbeing. Spring is here which means we are more likely to get back on the sports field, grab those trainers or walk to work, which is fantastic for a happier you!
On the flip side pain can have a very negative effect on our wellbeing, from an old injury to new ache or recovering from an operation it can be frustrating and very debilitating in our daily lives. We can help in several ways and our practitioners work together to ensure you get the right treatment to get you smiling again.
Physio therapy involves looking at the body as whole and we can offer further guidance on exercise, how to prevent pain and injury and general health and well-being. It can play a vital role in the relief of pain and healing and no referral is needed to access the service. Physiotherapists are the experts in human movement, from the way we move our backs and limbs, to the way we breathe. Their purpose is to restore function, activity and independence, and prevent further injury or illness.
At Sarum Physio you can also access our Sports Injury Clinic which offers treatment for pain relief and to reduce swelling, strapping and joint support, expertise in orthotics and advice on footwear, not forgetting sports massage. The team can also provide you exercises to restore movement and strength. Keeping you off the bench and on the field, court, course or in the gym.
Or why not try Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), which is deeply relaxing and helps to cleanse the body of any accumulated waste products and toxins. The practitioner uses a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow. MLD promotes healing, may strengthen the immune system and relieve fluid in the body helping with swollen ankles, puffy eyes etc.
