February 2022: On the Treatment Table

January 29 2022

Time for a fresh start?

Happy New Year Kingswood, I hope you’re well and having had a great festive break are looking forward to a fresh start in 2022. We’ve all experienced a few difficult years, so let’s hope that this is the year we can finally return to the pre-Covid normality that we used to enjoy.  One of the benefits of the pandemic has been the way it has forced us to be creative and look for new solutions to life’s challenges. This is the February edition of KWV so it’s likely that 80% of us will have already shelved our New Year’s resolutions. However, it’s not too late to make some simple changes which can make us happier and healthier.

Resources developed through the pandemic may be able to help, there is wealth of digital information that’s readily available to suit different needs and lifestyles. There’s plenty of apps and websites that can help such as the NHS 10 minute exercise series which gives short focussed programs on cardio and strengthening (available at www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/10-minute-workouts), for runners there’s the Couch to 5K (available on Google Play or the App Store), or the British Chiropractic Association’s posture-related Straighten Up UK (available at www.chiropractic-uk.co.uk/straighten-up-uk).  

Previously we have looked at the SMART goals for training and exercise i.e. a plan that is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timed, you can apply these principles to the programs mentioned above.

At Action Potential we have embraced this Covid-related digital revolution by now offering our Pilates classes online with our instructor Miriam Roberts. Miriam is able to provide her expertise safely to small groups but now at the convenience of your laptop or smartphone.  We have also recently moved to a digital diary and note taking system that will be able
to offer online booking shortly
too.

In the meantime, take care of yourselves, stay fit and well, and enjoy an active and healthy new year. If you need any further advice or treatment, then the team at Action Potential will be happy to help.
