Active Living and Physiotherapy In Singapore

For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp xx

Active living is a way of life where you integrate physical activity and exercise into daily routines, as much as possible. An example is if you're going grocery shopping, you opt to walk there and carry the grocery and walk back; or when you choose to ride your bicycle to work instead of taking the bus or driving your car.

Active living will be the answer to counter the negative effects of sedentary lifestyles, as our work becomes more and more deskbound and sedentary, it becomes easier for us to form bad postural habits that is aggravated by prolonged computer and desk/office working lifestyle. Many of the patients whom we treat in our physiotherapy clinic in Singapore or even in the comfort of their homes often complain of musculoskeletal disorders, which is characterized by aches, pains and stiffness in the muscles, joints and connective tissues in the absence of trauma, accompanied by a sedentary lifestyle.

How Can I Include Active Living As Part Of My Life?

It differs from person to person as our lifestyle, age, location, climate and demographics differ, but it's relatively easy to incorporate into your lifestyle, but it requires some planning before hand. You can try the weekend first (ease into it) by seeing some tasks that you have to do such as grocery shopping, visiting a friend, going out for a meal or a movie, and consider taking a more "active" approach such as taking the stairs instead of taking the lifts, taking a walk if the weather's good, and when you visit a friend, offer to help with the chores or cooking (don't over do it =p). What you may need to consider first is your fitness levels, so do check with your doctor to see what you should start off with - he or she may refer you to your local physiotherapists, or if you walk in to our physiotherapy clinic, we will first do a full clinical examination of medical and social history, followed by physical and mobility assessment before we prescribe our customized exercise program to suit your level of fitness and ability.

Some other things you should consider is to get appropriate footwear, sports gear and backup plans should the weather changes and the like. In the medium to long term considerations, if you're planning to buy a home to stay in, see the vicinity and sidewalks and city planning if it will sustain your lifestyle of active living in your community. That itself will help encourage and keep you active.
