Why Physiotherapy Should be Included in Your Self-Care Routine
by Jeff Richards
Self-care is one of those trendy words nowadays, but self-care isn’t all expensive bath products or taking yourself on lavish trips. It can be, but at the very core of it, self-care is quite simply just taking the time and having the awareness of what you need to do to take care of all aspects of your health – both mental and physical.
Why Physiotherapy Should Be Considered Self-Care
It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life; work, taking care of the kids, chores, you name it, but when it comes down to it – you’re not going to do your best at anything if you’re not taking care of yourself first. If you’re always on-the-go, find an integrative healthcare clinic like Refresh Health & Wellness so you can take on all your mental and physical health needs with physiotherapy, counseling, naturopathy, and massage all under the same roof, or if you have more specific needs like an injury or maintaining your active lifestyle then a specialized approach like Empower Physical Rehabilitation may be the right choice for you.
Whatever you choose, you should move physiotherapy to the top of your self-care essentials list. Along with massage therapy at Sutherland Chan Massage Clinics, physiotherapy can help reduce muscle tension, improve mood, decrease stress, treat injury and pain, and teach you exercises and skills to make sure you’re properly caring for your physical needs at home.
Self-care means prioritizing the choices and behaviors that support mental and physical wellness, decreased stress and improve overall health. So next time you read that list of the “40 things you MUST buy if you’re serious about self-care” maybe reconsider that purchase and invest in true self-care with a visit to your physiotherapist.
