International health insurance customers might want to look into functional exercise if they are struggling with hip, knee or back pain.
According to recent comments made by Dr Nicola Walsh, exercises can prove to be very important among patients who need to improve their ability to function when it comes to daily tasks.
The senior lecturer at the University of the West of England in Bristol said: "What's very important is that functional activities, such as sitting to standing, walking or stair climbing are integrated into any programme, as patients can see a direct correlation between exercises they are doing and potential improvements in their function."
She also noted that people should try to make exercise enjoyable and introduce a social aspect if they are keen to improve their chances of adhering to the routine in the long term.
The advice follows news that the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy has awarded Dr Walsh its largest ever research grant for her studies into the clinical and cost-effectiveness of prescribing exercise and self-management for older people with chronic knee, hip or lower back pain.
