Get moving couch potato!
06 September 2019 | Health
According to Physiotherapy Namibia, looking after your health should be your key priority. By joining, celebrating and honouring World Physiotherapy Day, all Namibians can play their part. This year’s celebration focuses on the physiotherapists’ role in tackling chronic pain.
Chronic pain is a major burden for people and their health – with low back pain causing more disabilities than any other condition.
Physiotherapists assist people with chronic pain and help them take control of their condition by managing their pain. By increasing physical exercise activity, they also improve the quality of life. The benefits of using exercise to manage pain include maintaining flexibility and movement and improving cardiovascular health. It also helps in the building and keeping of muscle tone and improving mood and general wellbeing.
Take a picture of your activity this Sunday and post it on Namibia Physio’s Facebook page. All you have to do is make your move, capture your move and share your move. Use the following hashtags when posting on Instagram and Facebook #worldptday #namibiaptday #namibiamovementday
