The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists have partnered with the HSE Community Physiotherapy Service in Cork to encourage you to exercise during this period of cocooning.
Physiotherapy Strength and Balance Exercises for those cocooning during COVID-19
By committing to doing these strength and balance exercises twice every day you will keep yourself healthy and strong. It will mean that when this period of self isolation is over you will be able to return to your normal activities more quickly.
You will only need a sturdy chair with arms, flat comfortable shoes and 2 weights (tins of fruit) or 2 small bottles of water. If you feel unwell on any day, don’t push yourself to complete these exercises.
You can view or download a leaflet containing these exercises on the ISCP website.
