Keep on moving while working from home with Kristi Barker Problem Busters

Energetic Physiotherapist Kristi Barker gives us the low down on the science of keeping moving to stay healthy. With so many of us now heading into our second year working from home, it's more important than ever that we spare a thought for the need to mix it up, to sit and to stand, to get outside and stay active, but most of all - to find our own balance of activity.

I've been a Physical Therapist for 5 years now.
I was really into Volleyball when I was younger and kept injuring myself
02:30 I got into Physio after a trip to Uganda to help distribute wheelchairs. A young man who was destined for a wheelchair was re-diagnosed, educated and avoided being put into a wheelchair!
Where Reach Rehab came from: How can we use education to help educate in a bigger scale?
I put it on Instagram and it's taken off. I've never looked back since!
It has been such an amazing way to educate thousands of people at once.

06:00 What is Physiotherapy when you really get down to it? A mix of Chiropractor and Massage therapy. Clicking and joints, to working with muscles. We look at the muscles and joints, how they work together and we are the doctors of movement. To ensure you are moving optimally and functioning at your best.
There are so many different regions of Physiotherapist. With babies, in the hospital, with patients, with people who are recovering, with athletes.
There is a lot of research going on. The Masters program made it a 6.5 year degree.
In the USA, there are doctors of Physiotherapy.
09:00 Jonathan's first introduction into Physiotherapy - Science faculty folks were working alongside sports doctors.
For teeth health it is ingrained in us as a child that we should brush our teeth daily. So why isn't mobility and strengthening daily ingrained in us?
That majority of people who are on pain medication, by the time I see them, don't want to be on them.
Movement is medicine!
Prevention is an exciting trend. People coming in to prevent future injury.
You don't need to have an injury to come and see a Physical Therapist, you can talk to us to help prevent injuries.
What complaints from working from home? Back pain, neck pain, hip pain and tennis elbow. It is more the static posture we are in for prolonged periods. This leads to lengthened and shortened ligaments.
The wonderful people who work in the NHS.
It is great to see Physiotherapy embedded in Hospitals and within the healthcare system.
Being prescribed a Physio in a situation that used to lead, with the same doctor, to being prescribed pain medication.
16:00 Post-surgery it is almost imperative to see a Physio.
What is the difference between Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists? Occupational Therapists look at your movement for every day life. Exercises specific to daily living.
18:30 What are the main causes for discomfort in patients? How often we move and how we move. Be careful not to move from static to extreme exercise. Match the activity levels. Don't push too hard.
Most people I see are either not doing enough and doing too much. It's about finding a balance for you.
Some of it could be improper form as...
