Sophie Finds The Perfect Fit at Life Fit Wellness

17 Degrees is a Forth Valley lifestyle magazine that is based out of Falkirk Business Hub, and has been since September of last year. They provide our area with a progressive, creative and insightful publication. Sophie, the Editor in Chief says, “We have met so many incredible business professionals working throughout the Forth Valley that are based in FBH over the past six months.” Sophie has also been getting to know the team at Life Fit Wellness. After a conversation with the reception team about her ongoing sciatica, she scheduled a physiotherapy session with Stewart Kerr, one of the Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Team. Following a thorough assessment, a treatment plan was agreed which involved a tailored exercise program, advice on daily management and some ‘hands-on’ treatment which provided some welcome pain-relief.

Following this session she received her personalised exercise program by email which included photos, videos and written description of the exercises. Part of the management program discussed was to facilitate a smooth transition to Pilates. A 1-1 Intro to Pilates was arranged with Chartered Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor, Carolyn Kent. This set Sophie up nicely with confidence to transition into a Pilates Class. This week she will be attending a Pilates Circuit Class at Life Fit Wellness, which utilises specialised large equipment such as the ‘Reformer’. Having both services in the same place was ideal and made the transition from physiotherapy to exercise achievable.

Furthermore, the benefit of having a dual trained Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor meant that her sciatica was accommodated, and therefore the exercise was not only achievable, but enjoyable and beneficial. She has since followed up for a review physiotherapy session with Stewart and the improvements were clear to see. 17 Degrees Magazine will be publishing a feature on the centre in the next issue so stay tuned to hear about Sophie’s progress and all that is offered at the integrated healthcare and exercise centre. You can pick up a complimentary copy of the publication at FBH reception.
