News. Summer

Being Summer Smart

Cold weather is often associated with an increase in joint pain and stiffness, but warm weather can also increase swelling and pain. Increased pressure & humidity can increase the expansion of joints, tendons and muscles leading to painful symptoms.
Here are our top tips for staying cool this summer:

Avoid going outside if you can on extremely hot days. Take regular breaks to stay cool and wear light cotton clothing.

Water is will help flush toxins out of the body which will help fight inflammation. Drinking water little and often will keep your joints lubricated. Avoid alcohol and fizzy drinks as these can make you dehydrated!

Avoid peak times of day where the sun and heat are at their strongest. Get up early! Don’t over exert yourself and be mindful of how much your joints can handle. Over extension of your joints in hot weather could leave you feeling swollen and sore later.

Enjoy the sunshine and take good care!

Bike Week

In June we celebrated Bike Week here in the clinic!

Many of the team can often be spotted on two wheels, enjoying the many benefits that cycling can bring.

If you're new to exercise, it's always smart to first talk to your Osteopath . Consider the current limits of your joints, and work within those limits. Your osteopath can help determine if cycling is safe for you, and how to incorporate it into an exercise plan that gives you the most benefit without aggravating your joint pain. More tips to help protect your joints:

Move gently. Move your joints gently at first to warm up. You might begin with range-of-motion exercises for five to 10 minutes before you move on to aerobic exercise.

Get the right gear. If you're riding outdoors, always wear a bike helmet, along with eye protection (like simple sunglasses) and brightly colored clothing. Also consider bike gloves to protect your hands from vibration, or from injury if you fall. Map your route before heading out. Dedicated bike routes such as the taff trail can help keep you separated from traffic.

Start with a short ride. Begin with five or 10 minutes at a low resistance. Go easy at first, then gradually increase the length and intensity of your ride as you progress. Work your way up to 2 hours of moderately intense aerobic exercise per week (that's 30 minutes, four times a week). You can split that time into 10-minute blocks if that's easier on your joints. To determine if you are in the moderate intensity exercise zone, you should be able to carry on a conversation while exercising, though your breathing rate will be increased.

Stop if anything hurts. Listen to the pain. Take a break when your joints start to ache, or change gears to lessen the resistance on hills. If you feel any new joint pain, it's time to stop. Talk to your osteopath about what pain is normal and when it's a sign of something more serious.

Stretch after cycling .

Stretching after a ride can help reduce muscle fatigue and prepare you for your next ride.

News. Nutrtion

Nutrition & Hydration Week

How osteopathy, hydration & nutrition can work together.

Avoid Soreness after osteopathic treatment

It is important to drink water after an osteopathic treatment because you may experience soreness in the muscles that have been worked on during your session. Keeping your muscles hydrated will help to reduce the achiness. We would advice drinking a glass of water before you leave the clinic!

Joint stiffness
A benefit of drinking water especially before bed can be to help reduce the effects of early morning joint stiffness
