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.
