How do you manage to do all the shopping, cook the turkey and survive the in-laws without injuring yourself in the process?
The run up to Christmas is fraught with difficulties – presents to buy, decorations to hang, cards to write and a million and one things to organise. Then over the holiday period most of us eat too much and then slouch in front of the television to watch the James Bond film for the 10th time! All of this can cause strains and sprains in even the fittest of us and often at Physio & Therapies we treat a number of people between Christmas and New Year with injuries caused by Christmas activities, or more often, inactivity!
