In one of my previous posts I was writing about all the advantages that come whit regular exercise, but I didn’t mention that once you start exercising and discovering your body all over again, you can encounter some uploaded physical pain.
This fall I organised group of Friends for a cross training class, because I wanted to add more diversity into my workout routine that consisted mostly of pilates.After few workout sessions, one of my friends got back pain problems, that were not just physical pain, but also all the emotional pain and upload she was uploading for past two years and maybe even longer. She needed to stop herself for few weeks and get into physical therapy to restart her body as well as her emotions and position herself all over again. And as we were debating over the coffee, we were discovering that too many people are encountering same problems and most of it were low back pain or spine problems, heavy headaches and neck pain. We concluded that it all comes from constant rushing and too stressful lifestyle, not taking enough time to recharge and take care of your body and mind and make necessary life style changes. As my friend entered physical therapy, I started to research how it could benefit one, even before the pain and problems occur. If it should be part of my routine or just taking care of myself before I get any pain or physical problems, since I am the type of personality that very badly tolerates any uncomfort or pain in my body. What I learned is that physical therapy doesn’t only need to be a cure, but it has positive influence as well as a prevention of or elimination of any pain and discomfort, as an improvement of mobility and balance, as an avoidance of surgery and even if you need surgery it helps you prepare better for it….and that is why it is important to visit physiotherapist right away when you feel any discomfort, because it is essential to work on your pain as soon as possible, to try to prevent any serious injuries.
I decided I will go with my friend at one of her sessions and test it out myself, to see what it is all about. I got examined and decided I will give it a try for few sessions, because after two pregnancies and carrying my three year odl daugther a lot, I decided I need to relieve my tensions that uploaded on my neck and treat myself to few preventive therapies. As of my friend, she regularly visited physiotherapy for few weeks and when therapist gave her permission to go back to working out, she returned to our group. Now after few months, I can confirm she is not only looking better than ever and is in great shape, she is in better emotional state. Thus from personal expreience I can confirm how a good physical threaphy and right manual therapist approcah can benefit your daily lifestyle. Combined with regular excersise routine it can help burnout prevention and overall more happiness and satisfaction to your daily life.
