It’s been a busy few months and I realised that I have been very quiet in terms of posting on here.
First of all, I trust that all reading this post are safe and well. We are living in strange times and are having to adapt to new ways of carrying on with our lives in new and inventive ways.
At the moment I am unable to see clients, but there are some very exciting plans afoot (sadly a crucial meeting was postponed due to the crisis otherwise I could have told you more). It entails a close working relationship with a local Physiotherapy clinic who have a particular interest in chronic spinal conditions – they are very keen to work collaboratively as they already have a full scoliosis clinic and are always looking for new ways to treat their clients. RSC bracing fits nicely into their method of practice and we will be developing interventions that will be hard to rival in the UK. Watch this space!
On a personal note, the enforced break has enabled me to get round to the many tasks that have been lurking in the background, waiting for a convenient time to be completed. Minor repairs around the house, catching up with the garden and the allotment after the staggeringly wet winter we had, and of course, my wife has got a few little projects for me to do! I am a keen amateur weaver and this break has given me time to develop new skills and get a greater understanding of this fascinating craft.
The big problem (apart from the obvious threat of the Covid virus) is our mental wellbeing. For many people, this time presents enormous challenges – parents who have teenagers who would have been preparing for exams, parents of small children who need constant entertainment and care, and of course the elderly who have their freedom significantly impaired due to the lock down.
The main thing is to keep as active in both body and mind as possible – if you have Schroth exercises to do, now is the time to get back into the routine, check with your practitioner to make sure that you are doing them correctly (I’m sure most will be happy to look at a video of you doing them) and concentrate on those areas which you find most challenging.
None of us have any idea how long this situation is going to last, so all I can say is hang on in there and look after yourselves both physically and mentally, and I look forward to hearing from you in the future. In the meantime, if you are able to visit my Facebook page (Search for Cymortho), like and share it, that would be really helpful.
Finally, I would like to sahre a couple of photos I took that we had on a short break to Iceland just before the lockdown kicked in. It’s a stunning country and we fell in love with the people and the landscape and look forward to returning one day!
