Lotion is Motion

Did you know movement and gentle mobility exercises after acute injury has the ability to increase recovery?

Generally speaking, after injury continued range of motion and trying to normalise movement has the ability to nourish our joints and increase circulation. This can decrease stiffness, swelling and minimises the possibility of worsening your condition and extending your recovery time. The more you move after injury the more fluidity within your joints and the greater opportunity to continue moving normally while recovering from your injury.

Remember to consult with a health care professional after injury to ascertain the appropriateness of movement after injury and when you should begin rehab.
