How to cope with COVID-19 - Video Consultation

With the global outbreak of COVID-19, the UK government this week followed other European and Asian countries to recommend social distancing and home working. However, it is important to remember that other health condition does not simply disappear and it is time for innovative technology to help us continuing our care for our patients in the coming weeks and months.

The recommendation to self-isolate for the above 70s and general advice to "stay at home" are important public health measures. As a result, many people sudden cut down outdoor activity and become more sedentary - there are obvious knocked on effects on general well-being as well as exacerbating chronic musculoskeletal condition / pains / ache.

What can I do to help with my pain and ache?

  1. Although gym and leisure centres are now closed, you can always enrol onto online exercise programme. There are an abundance of Youtube exercise video that suit all sorts of fitness level ranging from calisthenics - a form of exercise consisting of a variety of movements which exercise large muscle groups (gross motor movements), such as running, standing, grasping, pushing, etc. These exercises are often performed rhythmically and with minimal equipment, as bodyweight exercises.
     
  2. If the weather is good, why not have some fresh air and exercise / kick a ball out in the back garden?
     
  3. The UK National Trust is planning to keep some parks and gardens open to the public for free - obviously this is not to encourage social gathering and we should still observe a 2m distancing from other people using the facility.
     
  4. Subscribe to our PhysioQinetics Youtube channel for our library of physio exercise video.
     
  5. Finally, we at PhysioQinetics will be adapting to the COVID-19 crisis to continue providing essential service to our patients.
