Drink more water.

That’s what we’re always being told; by GPs, in magazines, by beauty specialists – and in blogs like these.  But why?  Ok, so we all know that the body is made up of around 60% water and that without it we would die, but we thought we’d share some other reasons why you should drink more water – your body will thank you for it!

 

How much ‘more’ water should you drink?

Benefits of Post-Operative Physiotherapy at The Brookdale Clinic

Why early treatment is beneficial to your post-operative recovery

Today one of our physiotherapists – Cathie – shares the experience of one of her physiotherapy Cathie Stone - Physiotherapistpatients who self-referred to the clinic a week after having undergone a knee operation.

We’ll call him ‘Jim’.

Jim had undergone surgery for a lateral release (a surgical procedure to release tight structures on the outer or lateral aspect of the kneecap).  The hospital did not offer any immediate follow-up post-operative physiotherapy and very little advice was given as to how he should progress or how he could expect to feel after surgery.

He was limping badly on crutches; his knee was

Back pain treated at The Brookdale Clinic

Living with a pain in the back?!

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) have put together this useful little video to help you manage some of those niggling pains yourself, either before or inbetween your physiotherapy appointments.

“I’ve got this terrible pain in my back…”

We see it all too often and if you are reading this and thinking ‘yes this is me’ then don’t worry – you are not alone!

It’s thought that 98% of back pain cases are not serious and most cases will clear up in due course.  Try to keep moving, stay in work where possible and resume your normal activities even though it might be a little uncomfortable.  However, if you are in constant or excessive pain, then booking an appointment to see one of our physiotherapists, sooner rather than later, will ensure that you are checked out properly and given the right treatment plan to get you back to full health quickly.

Contact us on 01565 651832 to make your appointment today.

Sun Awareness Week - The Brookdale Clinic

Tips to keep your skin safe and avoid sunburn

It’s Sun Awareness Week here in the UK (May 8-14th) and we’d like to do our part by alerting you to some important facts to help keep you and your skin safe.

Whilst we might think that the sunshine at this time of year isn’t a problem, it’s a fact that it can be just as strong as it is in the summer months.  We just don’t seem to realise it.  Research by the British Association of Dermatologists suggests that over a third of Brits suffered from sunburn in the last year with around 25% suffering not once, not twice, but three times!  And when abroad, those figures increase significantly.  When will we ever learn?!

So what can you do to protect your skin from harmful rays?

Why its good to talk - The Brookdale Clinic

Why it’s good to talk

It’s good to talk.  That’s what people say.

‘Talking therapies’ are the words on everyone’s lips right now.

If you missed the recent FaceTime call between Prince William and Lady GaGa (you can watch it here) then you might not have seen the subsequent exposure that followed all about opening up and talking to one another.  The Heads Together charity which helps to support those suffering from mental health issues was chosen as the London Marathon’s charity of the year with the aim of raising awareness and encouraging people to speak out about what’s on their minds. #OkToSay

People go through tough times – fact.

Some people can deal with tough times – no problem.
