Keeping active is so important especially as we get older. We loose 8% muscle mass each decade unless we do strengthening exercises to help this. Loss of strength and fitness can lead to an increase in falls, decreased bone density and finding every day tasks more difficult to complete and low mood.

As we are all restricted to limited activity in the current climate we have to find other ways to keep active. Here is a great link for safe gentle exercises to be completed at home showing varying levels of ability.

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy also have a great video on the importance of keeping active and staying steady showing 6 simple exercises to keep you moving

Exercise is the not the only way to help our mind and bodies. What we eat is also important to maintain healthy bones. Foods rich in calcium and vitamin D are really important. We find Vitamin D from sunlight, oily fish, eggs, some types of pork and lambs liver. You can also take this as a supplement (please discuss with GP before doing this).

It is never too late to start moving and exercising just make sure you start off easy and progress slowly. Remember we all have good days and not so good days. Listen to your bodies and adjust your exercise appropriately.

I attended the clinic at 28 weeks pregnant after suffering with my back - Lindsey was so so helpful, informative and made me feel completely comfortable. Would highly recommend.

I’ve used Grosvenor for physio, acupuncture and podiatrist services on a number of occasions over the years for myself and my sporty kids and always been really pleased with the results. Friendly, approachable and importantly provided good advice that fixed the problems we presented with. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or return if required.

Had treatment with Jo following replacement knee surgery and this was excellent. Had no hesitation returning a couple of years later for a back problem and again I cannot fault their service.

Grosvenor was recommend to me when I was having some back issues. Felt at ease as soon as I walked in. Friendly, professional service who really listened and provided a plan to help. Really happy with the results of my treatment plan meant I could get back to the things I enjoy. Would highly recommend

I had four sessions of physio and acupuncture with Jo who then suggested I might benefit from seeing her colleague Louise for some clinical massage. The treatments I have received at the Grosvenor Clinic have meant my neck has been pain free for the first time in a number of years. All of the staff are so friendly and explain everything that is happening so you have confidence in all aspects of your treatment.

I have visited the clinic three times now for an extremely painful trapped nerve, when I first called up in a panic they accommodated me very last minute and got me treated and rebooked for acupuncture with Jo and I can’t thank her enough! The relief I have had since being to the clinic is amazing. Can’t recommend enough!
