Body Talk - 2nd December

My guest this week was Trevor Weeks, Specialist Physiotherapist at Spire Hartswood Hospital.

Are you planning a skiing holiday soon? If so, Trevor had some good advice on how to prepare your body to withstand the strain of one or two weeks on the slopes. Trevor is a skier himself, so he knows only too well the pitfalls of the slopes.

The main thing is to make sure you are fit and healthy before you go. The message given out on the show every week is to get plenty of exercise and make sure you have a healthy diet. If you are a skier the advice is just the same. Get down to your local gym, find some exercise classes to work out those leg and arm muscles. It's no use getting tired out after an hour or so. Build up your stamina.

If you are unlucky enough to have an accident, Trevor and the Hartswood Physiotherapy team will be there to help you when you return. They can give you excellent advice on how to rebuild and tone those wounded areas. Pop in for a check up if you're suffering from unusual aches and pains. It's worth looking after yourself now, to prevent further injuries in the future.
