There are plenty of ways to avoid going to see a physiotherapist yourself. After all, many muscular or skeletal problems are not going to go away over night and going out to see a physio regularly may take up a great deal of your time.
However, whilst you may be able to get help from an NHS physio over the phone or even find physiotherapy exercises you can do yourself at home by looking on the internet, by taking this approach there is always a chance that you could be doing more harm than good.
The benefits are obvious. By doing such exercises yourself, you can avoid a consultation charge and will be able to do any exercises you need to in your own time, as and when you get the chance, rather than having to make room in your schedule to see a real physio. However, unless you are given very specific instructions and in turn feedback on the exercises you are doing, there is a good chance that you could actually be doing the exercises even slightly wrong and in turn you could be exacerbating the problems rather than fixing them.
Finding a good sports physio in London will be easy and it should also be easy to find one who can help you when you are free, rather than you having to fit into spare slots sporadically when you both happen to have time. Furthermore, you may only need one or two consultations before you can go away, safe in the knowledge that you have exercises you can continue in your own time that you actually know how to undertake correctly. From there, simple exercises and even taking regular classes in yoga in Hampstead may be all that it takes to get your body back to health in the quickest and most effective way.
