But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
Aug 5th, 2019
I am a very fit 78 year old woman and have seen that I’m developing a dowagers hump. I definitely do not want this.
I know that I have a tendency to hold my head forward. Can physio get rid of this hump/prevent it getting worse?
The Guru Responded:
Great question – in all honesty, Physio will not be able to get rid of it or prevent it getting worse.
But the good news is, you can.
I don’t think you’ll be able to get rid of it but I think you possibly can slow the process down and maybe even stop it getting worse by doing a simple set of exercises – which are set by a Physio.
Let me know if you need any recommendations.
Thanks very much for your honest answer.
I’m happy to pay for something that will work but have limited money-so every penny has to be well spent.
Could you please recommend a few suitable physios I live in London NW6
Can you also tell me please if any of these options would help:
deep tissue massage (I know an excellent masseur-who gives this)
experienced trainer at the gym
I think a session or 2 of rehab at our Finchley Road Clinic to show you what you need to do, and keeping well within your budget would be a great place to start.
Massage and acupuncture as you’ve suggested are very “passive” where someone does something to you. The trainer maybe a little too much and the Yoga a little to stretchy but Pilates would be great – and certainly something we’d advocate.
Hope this helps.
