Physiotherapists thrive in analysing a dysfunction of the body and are referred to when the body is unable to heal itself well enough (or when they have to).
I believe that if people were to be able to access Physiotherapy advice earlier, they could prevent a lot of injuries, limit the impact an injury or health condition can have on both physical and mental health.
Often, patients are referred for a small window of their problem, eg. After you’ve had back pain associated with pregnancy. So many patients say they wish they had known about things earlier. For example, the importance of pelvic floor exercises during pregnancy to prevent incontinence issues later on, or to get specific exercises to strengthen their back and arms for the physical demands of motherhood to prevent their pre-existing wrist pain from worsening with lifting and breastfeeding.
Most people are aware of the government exercise recommendations out there- how much, how often one should do, but often people find this so unspecific and unsure about how to go about his. Clients report it is hard to know how and what they could do, especially in relation to one’s personal lifestyle, motivations or pre-existing medical conditions or injuries.”
Hasina uses her Physiotherapy expertise to guide patients on their specific body (and mind) to give them a helping hand to achieve their goals. Hasina’s Physiotherapy style is coaching, to empower her clients to feel confident about exercising.
She has set up Physiotherapy rehab classes so that people can gain more confidence and understanding about how they can exercise, despite none or many injuries or conditions. The classes are a mix of high quality evidence (which Hasina is passionate about keeping up to date with regularly), her top pick, a mix of pilates (in which she is trained), HIIT, plyometrics. Every class is different, to keep everyone on their toes, and she also adapts it to the clients that attend. Often I will have 5 runners in my class and will focus that class to them.
The difference about HasinaPhysio classes is that she gives specific advice (and facilitation when classes are face to face) specific to your body, mind and goals through the class. (You’re almost having personal Physio sessions many times a week!)
Hasina prides herself on being the springboard to help someone jump into their goals. She does this by exploring any worries, fears by myth busting, and supporting them. In order for a client to flourish and make best recovery, it is integral that all those that are crucial to their recovery are included. Hasina often works with a client’s personal trainers, Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists, strength and conditioning coaches, yoga/dance instructors, club managers, so that they can continue with them, doing the sport or activity they wish. Often with long term conditions, this can mean having sessions with their friends and family.
Outside of HasinaPhysio sessions, she has collaborated with communities and charities to deliver talks on Health and wellbeing. Hasina currently works in chronic pain, with patients who have a long and complex journey over their long term pain and conditions. Hasina has motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioural therapy skills and works closely with Psychologists. Her higher level of skills in understanding a client’s whole experience of an injury really allows her to connect with her clients in a non-judgemental way.
