Physio Fionnuala Sayers

A Northern Ireland physiotherapist has urged people to ensure they are looking after their bodies during lockdown to avoid long-term injury.

Physical fitness may not have been top of everyone's list over the past two months with gyms closed, and for those working from home, their desk has probably been the kitchen table, sofa or even bed.

Fionnuala Sayers, clinical specialist physiotherapist with the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, said people stuck at home at this time need to remember the key message - keep moving frequently - to prevent problems developing post-lockdown.
