Physiotherapy is a globally-recognised health service that can help you get back your independence, and continue doing the activities you love.
Keeping active and mobile may prove difficult for some during social isolation and we want to help.
Our National Partnerships Manager Anthony Moore is a physiotherapist (and a former Personal Trainer) and he’s created a series of five gentle exercises, all aimed at supporting mobility, for you to master.
We’re posting one exercise a week, so you’ve got time to master each one, so make sure you follow along by liking our page. Start with 10 reps and try to build up to 3 x 10 reps per day (breakfast, lunch, just before dinner) by the end of the week.
- Stand behind a chair.
- Reach your hands forward onto the backrest.
- Bend both knees into a squatting position, allowing your hand to slide over the backrest.
- Push through your legs and return to standing.
- Return to the starting position.
