Can you be fit and fat? An injury perspective.

Can you be fit and fat or healthy at any size? Now I am not a doctor so I am going to discuss things from a physiotherapists perspective. So we will discuss weights relationship with injury, joint health etc. essentially from a musculoskeletal perspective. This topic came up when I saw the “Fat doctor UK” debating on a tv show called “This morning”. She was putting forwards the case for being healthy and overweight and more.

Now, your first instinct may be to disagree with her, but I think there are some angles from my perspective that with some open-mindedness may not be a full gone conclusion. It is certainly interesting to talk about and hopefully an angle not discussed much when it comes to this topic.

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
