As a physiotherapist you get asked for advice by your friends and family all the time, even by people you’ve just met. “What do you think it is?” “What can I buy to help with the pain?” “What exercises can I do to stop it hurting?”
The truth is, and what any therapist is thinking at the time, that you need to be assessed properly by a musculoskeltal specialist. Unfortunately we do not have the powers to accurately diagnose somebody in 5 minutes and then prescribe exactly what they need.
However, I have realised over the years I have practised physiotherapy that there are exercises and advice I give over and over again. Maybe it’s because similar aches and pains share problems in common: lack of mobility, defficient strength, poor propioception and reduced function.
So I would advise my friends and family on exercises and therapy aids to target those particular issues. Once their body started working more efficiently, the pain would go away.
That’s when the idea for fisiokit started. To reach people that can’t access regular physiotherapy.
We created a website that provides affordable physiotherapy tools and rehabilitation guides, without making an appointment.
