As the weather improves (well we can always hope), we perhaps turn our thoughts to a more active lifestyle. The more committed athletic folk in our coummunities have already been pounding the streets & parks as they prepare for the marathon season and to those we send our best wishes & admiration.
We see quite a few dedicated runners & athletes at our clinics throughout the season. Some turn up when injury threatens an upcoming event but most come for regular MOTs throughout the year. It gives them confidence that they’re still at peak fitness and ready to face the next challenge. But not all patients who return every 3 months or so for an MOT are athletes, far from it. Many are busy office workers, teachers, healthcare staff and manual workers who know when their body is giving them a little hint that help is needed. The odd twinge or low grade ache reminds them that some treatment is needed.
Regular MOT body checks may well nip a bigger pain problem in the bud and save time, effort and hard earned cash!
