Many health problems men face can be improved through exercise and physical activity. This may include, but is not limited to, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, prostate cancer, heart conditions, weight and obesity concerns and depression. Men are often reluctant to seek help but just a few sessions of exercise can help them overcome any concerns they may have.
Seeking professional advice from the start is important. Pregnant women and post-natal mums are particularly at risk of ‘overdoing’ or ‘incorrectly doing’ their exercise leading to increasing stress incontinence and rectus separation (otherwise known as rectus diastasis). Seeing a qualified professional helps you exercise safely and confidently in any setting.
Other conditions specific to women, which benefit from specialised exercise advice are osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, anxiety, breast and ovarian cancer and lymphoedema, just to name a few.
Chronic Pain Management
People living with chronic pain suffer greatly from physical deconditioning, which often leads to a harmful cycle of poor sleep, decreasing mental health resilience, increased pain and decreased activity. Break the cycle now with the Fluid Exercise Physiology support team behind you. We will work with you to develop a Movement Management Plan (MMP), which can be implemented to reduce chronic pain, minimise reliance on pain medication and improve your physical condition.
Prehabilitation and Rehabilitation
Targeted exercise before surgery is equally as important as post-surgery exercise! The stronger physical shape you are in prior to surgery leads to improved post-surgical outcomes. Following surgery, people are often advised to ‘just do normal activities’, but our bodies tend to compensate for our shortcomings and can develop unusual movement patterns, such as limping, which can lead to pain or problems in other areas. Fast track your recovery and strength by consulting a qualified professional EP at Fluid Exercise Physiology.
Exercise has many positive side effects, which protect the body from chronic disease. Finding the energy to participate in regular activity becomes all the more difficult when suffering from a chronic condition. If this is you, we can show you how exercise can affect your condition, both positively and negatively, and what exercise is likelier to benefit you. It is especially true for people living with inflammatory conditions, chronic fatigue or other unique conditions.
