Staying Active with an Injury

Regular exercise is vital for managing many different health conditions as well as maintaining our ability to move through the world and partake in activities. Crucially for many, it also improves mood and assists in maintaining good mental health. An injury can be a real spanner in the works when trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

While injuries can be demotivating, there are still options available that will enable you to maintain good health even when you’re not feeling your best.

When seeking an exercise to do following an injury, you should look for low impact movements that don’t involve the affected area. Some examples include:

  • Chair Yoga – perfect for lower body injuries or impaired balance, chair yoga enables you to stretch out those muscles from a comfortable seated position. 
  • Aqua Aerobics – ideal for keeping weight off the joints and lower body, aqua aerobics can minimise the risk of falling while exercising. 
  • Tai Chi – these gentle slow movements can be ideal for upper body injuries and for restrengthening the muscles. 
  • Walking – perfect for upper body injuries or as gentle rehabilitation for the lower body, walking even short distances can ensure you stay mobile and can get you out into the fresh air. 

Before restarting any activity it is important to consult with your doctor or physio to ensure that the exercise is appropriate for your specific condition. 

Having some company when you exercise might be just the motivation you need to get moving again and may make you feel more confident when you are recovering from an injury. Sign Up Free and search to find the right support needed to make you comfortable in your movements and safe in your actions.
