Statistics show that men are far less likely than women to seek out professional advice regarding their wellbeing, but men need to take care of their health too.

Crawley’s Bridgeham Clinic can offer a range of services that are ideal for any men wanting to improve their fitness and look after their health.

Bridgeham say, “If you’re experiencing aches and pains don’t just put it down to the ageing process, there may well be something that you can do to alleviate your problems. At Bridgeham we’ve got 25 years’ worth of experience in helping our clients go from ‘broken to brilliant’!”

If you think that osteopathy could be just what you need, you can book in for a 1-hour new patient consultation with one of Bridgeham’s amazing osteopaths. If you are unsure whether osteopathy is the answer, then why not book a free 15-minute assessment?

“Our Pilates instructors can help you with core strengthening to help avoid injuries; movement discomforts; rehabilitation following surgery and to achieve your goal of running marathons, returning to the gym safely and living life to the full,” says Bridgeham.

“We also offer Personal Training sessions for a bit of extra motivation, which can make a big difference when you’re trying to improve your fitness.”

If you do a lot of sports, then you’ve probably experienced those times when you might have pushed things a bit too hard and the muscles are feeling a bit worse for wear!

Even if you’re in the peak of fitness then it’s still well worth looking after your body, so if you feel like yours might need an overhaul then try a Bridgeham Sports Massage.

Don’t miss out on the Lymphoedema Awareness Workshop at Crawley Hospital

The workshop is being held in March.

Published

on

As part of Lymphoedema Awareness Week 2019, which is 3rd – 9th March, the Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre is holding a Lymphoedema Information and Education Workshop on Wednesday 6th March 2-4 p.m at
The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre, Wentworth House, Crawley Hospital, West Green Drive, Crawley RH11 7DH.

This workshop will be led by Yvette Jordan, UK Lymphology Clinics Training Director and she will be supported by Olive Tree volunteer therapists Anna Parsons and Juliette Cross.

Affecting 1 in 5 patients, lymphoedema is a distressing condition and a known side effect of cancer treatment. It is caused because the flow of fluid within the lymphatic system has been disrupted because of surgery and having lymph nodes removed. 

This makes it harder for the lymph fluid to drain away which means that this excess fluid can then build up between the tissues and cause swelling of the arm, leg or surrounding area. 

Lymphoedema can develop weeks, months or even years after cancer treatment but early diagnosis by healthcare professionals and treatment by specialist lymphoedema therapists can help to reduce the severity of the condition.

Attendance will be of great value to anyone affected by cancer, including patients and healthcare professionals and will provide everything they need to know about lymphoedema. 

Topics covered will include:

• What is Lymphoedema?

• How does Lymphoedema happen?

• Who is most at risk?

• Recognising clinical signs of early Lymphoedema

• Best methods and early applications for a preventative approach

• Questions and answers

Yvette Jordan, who will be leading the workshop said:

“Much more awareness is needed with early intervention which is essential to help patients manage this disabling disease”.

To book your place on this informative workshop for 2-4 p.m. please call 01293 534465
