Keeping yourself fit and active can be difficult right now but there are lots of classes online that help with that. Why not try this seated exercise class from our physiotherapy team?
Just remember, two of the most important things about exercising; safety and enjoyment, so only do what you feel you can do comfortably.
Always start new exercises gently and carefully to avoid an injury. If you can manage the exercises without any problems, you can gradually increase the number of repetitions.
Discontinue any exercises that make you feel in any way worse rather than better. Stop immediately if you experience chest pain, dizziness or severe shortness of breath and contact your GP (dial 999 if you feel very unwell and your symptoms do not go away after you stop exercising).
