No time for the Gym Mrs Osteopath – Tone at Home!
As an osteopath based in Oxford I spend a large amount of my time encouraging and aiding patients to improve their abdominal strength. Good core strength is fundamental to good back health. Reduced tone in the front affects biomechanical chains and puts strain elsewhere. The usual way to promote core strength is to suggest joining a gym class or pilates or to prescribe exercises. However, everyone's lives are busy and for some, the luxury of the gym is not an option. However I would like to encourage everyone to have that 'me exercise time' even for fifteen minutes each day as it is fundamental to inner peace and mental and physical health.
If you struggle to make time for exercise, here are some ideas for you:

What Oxspines Osteopathy, Oxford, patients think
Although apprehensive about attending the sessions I was always been made to feel relaxed and able to talk about my condition without feeling a nuisance or pathetic! I am delighted with the results of her care as my back improved dramatically and is still improving. She provided a sheet of exercises by which I could continue my recovery at home, helping me to help myself.
