Movement Matters, Purley

We partnered with, Patricia Goka from Holistic PT Studio to provide six free joint health sessions for Optivo residents and the local community.
Patricia specialises in movement science and movement optimisation.  Over the six weeks the group worked on joint mobilisation, muscle activation, low impact movement, stretching, motor control, balance and coordination. The sessions were designed to encourage social interaction as well as focus on joint health to stay active for longer.

One participant said ‘I never realised the full benefits of exercise, until I was shown how to do it correctly,’ another explains she no longer has to pull herself up the stairs and can take the stairs normally. 

Case Study

Trudy thoroughly benefited from the group’s interaction; explaining she had not left the home for some time and had low confidence. Trudy looked forward to the group every week, and there was a visible difference between her confidence in her first week to the last – she certainly had a glow about her. Trudy has now made supportive friends and plans to get out more to local groups which’ll give her something to look forward to.
