Physio's MUST help overweight patients to deal with their problems

A CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) professional advisor said recently “Physio staff are well placed to help overweight patients to start dealing with their problems.”

The impact of obesity on health is huge. We as physiotherapists can help by Ask, Advise, Assist

  1. Ask – “How do you feel about your weight?”
  2. Advise – Discuss a balanced diet which can reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke and physical activity can also reduce stress, help you feel happier and reduce signs of aging. Eat 3 regular meals daily and build up activity levels slowly and at your own pace.
  3. Assist – Provide details of local services available, leaflets and websites.

The class size is such that she can check-up on us individually, to ensure that we are all doing the right thing!

I am delighted to commend and recommend the Pilates classes that Gill Huckett organises and runs in Borehamwood. I’ve found them to be wholly beneficial.

I've been attending her Friday classes for a few years, following an episode of bad back pain. The classes are enjoyable and class members are friendly: we all have a giggle.

Gill demonstrates the exercises and augments her demonstrations with clear, step-by-step instructions, as we undertake each set. The class size is such that she can check-up on us individually, to ensure that we are all doing the right thing!

Gill gives us the option to work at basic, intermediate or advanced levels within each type of exercise, so we’re always encouraged to work to our full potential. However, there’s no pressure to compete against other class members.

Best of all, my back feels more supple and I feel enormously better overall, after each class!

With best wishes
