What do I do if I get pain or injury in lockdown?

We’ve been contacted by numerous people over the past few weeks all wanting to know, “what happens if I get aches and pains during lockdown?”

This concern is genuine and understandable right now.

Are You Exercising TOO Much During Lockdown? – Here’s Why!

 

One great positive to come out of all of this is just how many people are exercising and increasing their physical activity levels.

This morning, as I’ve set up in my temporary home office, sat down with a coffee and answered the weekends emails, I have seen 10 runners, 4 cyclists, 2 couples walking, 4 dog walkers and 2 families out on scooters all pass my window.

And this isn’t a one off. This is a trend I’ve observed growing over the past 6 weeks.

Since the coronavirus upended most peoples lifestyles – including their exercise routines, more and more people of all types are turning to these kind of activities as a way to keep fit and occupied, and at home workouts are becoming more ‘the norm’ for many.

But as you find yourself with extra time on your hands and the urge to channel your boredom and manage your mental wellbeing by breaking a sweat; make sure you’re doing so safely. Because, yes, there is such a thing as ‘too much’ exercise. And overdoing it could actually do more harm than good, pandemic or otherwise.
