Ideally you will need a Theraband (elastic exercise band) These are readily available from various outlets, but if you want to take advantage of our clinics discount code, click here to access www.66fit.com and use our 10% discount code TAVISTOCKPHYSIO10 .
Bonus equipment: an exercise mat, a small soft Pilates ball or you can use a squidgy pillow, a half foam roller to stand on, a suitable hand weight (you can use a plastic milk container filling it with more water or sand as you become stronger)
Please remember that as we are not with you to correct your moves, do your exercises with care and not into discomfort.
Please call your professional therapist or Tavistock Physio Clinics 01822 617722 if you have any issues or require some help. We can offer ‘one to one online tutorials’ or ‘face to face sessions’.
For some of you, a Physiotherapy assessment and treatment, with a bespoke exercise plan may be more appropriate for your individual needs. If you are not sure, please call Tavistock Physio Clinics or your professional therapist..
