Returning to exercise isn’t so scary with the team on your side

Can you believe we are almost one entire month into 2024?!
It is not uncommon for our new year’s resolutions to be hanging around at the back of our minds as we decide whether we will follow through with them this year or not. The truth is, there is no better time to prioritise your health and rekindle your relationship with exercise and the gym than right now. Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast or contemplating a fresh start, the benefits of regular exercise are boundless.

Jumping back into exercise or a gym might seem a bit overwhelming, but you’re certainly not alone. Loads of people share the same uneasiness. An Osteopath can give advice and guidance about your beginning or return to exercise. A gradual approach, incorporating a variety of cardiovascular exercises, strength training, and flexibility workouts will provide you with a well-rounded fitness routine. While getting back into the groove at the gym, it’s important to address any potential muscle soreness and strains. Sometimes we can put-off seeking help which can often at times lead
to the progression of an injury or delay the recovery time.

This is where Osteopathy steps in. Osteopaths focus on optimising joint mobility, relieving muscle tension, and enhancing overall body function. With various hands-on techniques, along with personalised advice and exercise plans, an Osteopath is an excellent match for newcomers to the world of gym and exercise.

As you get back into the swing of exercise or head to the gym, regard Osteopathy as your ally in health. Book a session with one of our skilled team members at today!
