1 – You May Feel A Little Tender, But That Will Pass
Your initial assessment will have involved some movements that you may not have done in a while and you may have had some hands on treatment. So, it can be normal to feel a little tender afterwards. (Clients can often report this as a ‘good soreness’.) But don’t worry, this is normal, and it will usually eases within 12 – 24 hours
2 – Check Your Email For Your Exercises
Videos of your exercises will be sent within 10 minutes of your session and will be waiting in your email inbox for you. (Be sure to check your spam, junk or promotions folder incase and then save our address to be sure you will receive them).
If you don’t get them then let us know and we will resend them
3 – Should I Be Moving Or Resting?
A bit of both to be honest and there is no one hard and fast rule. But here is our advice. In general, rest from the movements or activities that aggravate your pain and continue with any movements that don’t.
Please note that if your injury is acute, there is an inflammatory response occurring in your body and if you rest or sit for too long, you can stiffen up. Mix movement with rest – Little and often.
4 – How Often Should I Do My Exercises?
Again, little and often works really well. We try to integrate your exercises into your daily activities as much as possible. So rather than thinking ‘I need to do 3 sets of 10 reps x 3 times per day, think, where are the opportunities to practice your exercises.
For example, squashing an orange under your foot every time you get up off a chair to engage your leg muscles, or practice your back relaxation exercise every time you have to bend down to put on your socks or tie your laces,
