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.

A few weeks ago my little boy fell off his bike and in the initial panic of “do we need to take him to hospital to get checked over?” it dawned on me – is that even an option right now?

This got me thinking about our clients too. Injuries and conditions that were troublesome before lockdown don’t disappear overnight and those thrown into a different routine are now starting to develop new issues too.

So how can you still get help if you’re in pain or discomfort during lockdown?

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.

Could Sleep Be The Missing Link In Your Recovery?

Looking for an excuse to stay longer in bed? …We may just have the perfect one here.

We’re often asked in clinic “is there anything else I can be doing myself at home to help my recovery?” and besides the exercises, hydration and ice and heat advice we give out, one very important factor that I find that a lot of people overlook when it comes to their recovery is the importance of sleep.

If you want to recover faster, reduce pain, decrease your risk of injury and have more energy, then sleep has a crucial part to play. The National Sleep Foundation (after reviewing 300 sleep studies) recommends that the adequate amount of sleep for adults is 7-9 hours a night. But why is that and why is sleep so important to your recovery?
