How a regular visit from your physio can help improve your mobility
Do you struggle to perform everyday tasks like walking, jogging, getting out of bed, doing the laundry, cooking, using a walking aid like crutches and wheelchairs, or any other basic task?
Would you like to participate in your favourite sports – for longer periods of time – without fear of pain afterwards?
Have you recently undergone a serious medical procedure – for instance, orthopaedic surgery, or a total knee/hip replacement – that has severely limited your mobility?
Whatever your age or circumstances, you could benefit greatly from improving your mobility.
What exactly is mobility?
Mobility is a term used to describe how quickly, easily, and confidently you can move one or more parts of your body.
Common causes of poor mobility
There are many reasons why you may experience a loss of mobility. Ageing and lack of exercise are the two most common reasons. But this only scratches the surface as to who is susceptible to mobility issues.
You may also suffer from limited mobility due to:
- A serious illness – i.e. motor neurone disease or multiple sclerosis
- A sports or work related injury
- Joint dislocation
- Muscle stiffness
- Inflammation of soft tissues surrounding the joint
- Weakness and fatigue
- Stress or trauma from a recent medical procedure
If you suffer from limited mobility due to any of these reasons, recovering by yourself can be slow and put you at risk of injury.
For this reason, it’s a good idea that you book an appointment with a qualified physiotherapist.
