Why You Should Become a Physiotherapist

If you’re planning a career in medicine, one of the most attractive options is to train and qualify as a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists work in many different areas and settings, with a broad variety of different kinds of patient, so you are able to define your career for yourself while following your interests and issues you are passionate about.

Today we’re breaking down the hows and whys to show you why it’s a great choice of career, whether you’re fifteen and just starting to make plans for the future, or a professional looking for a new lease of life in a new career.


Before you can start looking for physiotherapy jobs you will need to qualify and register as a physio. Many universities offer three year courses recognised by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) – note that in Scotland four years of study is required. If you already have a degree, or relevant experience, you may find you qualify for accelerated courses that cut this down to only two years.

There are also part time programmes that allow you to integrate your studies with work over a longer period, so needing to support yourself is no bar to eventually gaining a qualification.

What is Physiotherapy?

After qualification you can start to find jobs in the field, which cover a lot of ground. Wherever you end up working, the main job of a physio is to provide education and advice, recommend movement therapies and exercises and perform some manual therapies.

In practice, this means educating your patients to avoid injuries (more realistically, avoid repeating injuries) – recommending safe ways to exercise and perform manual tasks. In a specific example, a patient suffering from back pain may be given advice about good posture as it relates to their job.

Recommending exercise can come in the form of advice, or more authoritative referral to other specialists. Someone who requires more core strength to avoid straining muscles may simply be given some recommended lifts and stretches, whereas someone dealing with a more serious injury could be referred to a hydrotherapy centre for more treatment.

Finally, manual therapies involve a hands on manipulation of the patient and massage to relieve pains and stretch constricted muscles.


The joy of pursuing physio as a career is that it gives you the chance for a huge amount of variety. Whether you work within the NHS or privately, people from every walk of life need physio at some stage and this allows you to create a career you feel really passionate about. You can work to support people with sports injuries – even graduating to work as an inhouse physio for a major sports team.

You can also work with children or the elderly, or use your experience to manage more junior physiotherapists who need your guidance and advice.

Shopping for Apparel for Medical Professionals

Healthcare professionals must dress a certain way when they are at work. Their employers may require that they come to work dressed in scrubs, lab coats, tennis shoes, and drawstring pants. Their apparel signifies their position in the facility and also alerts patients about who is there to help them.

Whether you have started a new job or you simply need to add work apparel to your wardrobe, you can find pants, shoes, ladies lab coat, and other clothing for your medical job online. The apparel all comes in an assortment of sizes, colors, and styles to suit your needs and the requirements of your work.

Coats for Lab Employment

When you work in a lab, you need to protect yourself from exposure to dangerous fluids and liquids. You may handle everything from blood to urine and chemical solutions during a typical day at work.

You may already don glasses and gloves when you work with these fluids and liquids. However, the rest of your body is vulnerable to exposure unless you wear protective clothing.

The lab coats protect your chest, abdomen, arms, and the top part of your waist from spills and exposure. If you or a coworker accidentally spills something out of a collection cup or beaker, it will not harm you if it spills or splatters onto the coat.

The lab coat you wear also signals your status as a medical professional at the facility. It makes you look respectable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable of your job.

The coats for sale are easily washed and do not need extensive care like ironing or bleaching. You can take yours home after work and wash it in your machine without having to use special detergent.

They also have space on the surface for you to pin your work credentials and ID as well as stash pens, syringes, and other supplies you need during the day. They come with deep pockets to store equipment like a stethoscope or microscope that you might need to do your job.

Kids Clothing

Many kids like to dress up like Mom and Dad for Halloween. When Mom is a lab worker or Dad is a doctor, a child may want to wear the same apparel as his or her parents for this holiday.

The website sells children’s clothing that looks like miniature versions of the real thing. Your kids can stay comfortable in their scrubs while they trick or treat.

Wellness For Beginners: Your Quick Reference Guide To Health

Once you realize that you want to have tons of energy and mood stability throughout your entire day, it’s time to start thinking about what steps you can take to build a life of profound wellness. Luckily, there are many behavioral changes you can make to get on the highway to health. Here are three of them:

1. Access The Dynamism Of Meditation.

Meditation is one of the most powerful wellness strategies on the block, and you should do all that you can to make it an integral part of your morning rituals. As many health experts know, meditation facilitates wellness by fighting stress, boosting immunity, and promoting a sustained sense of tranquility. Note that there are several distinct types of meditation available to you. Some of them include:

• Moving meditation
• Mettha Bhavana
• Guided visualization
• Japa Mala meditation
• Mantra repetition
• Vipassana
• Zazen

2. Try Yoga.

While many people know that exercise plays an integral role in the process of getting healthy, the majority of U.S. residents still don’t engage in enough physical activity to see great results like boosted metabolism and weight loss. But you can. One incredibly powerful and increasingly popular exercise modalities out there is yoga. In addition to lowering blood pressure, yoga can be used to cultivate a more sculpted physique so that you have greater confidence in the strength and beauty of your body!

3. Focus On Nutrition.

If you’re really serious about attaining a life of wellness this year, start focusing on your nutritional habits. This strategy is immensely important because it will empower you to optimize your energy levels, fight disease, maintain a positive mood, and manage your weight. While there is still no general consensus regarding what the optimal diet would be for each individual, many if not most health professionals agree that almost everyone could benefit from eating more fruits and vegetables every single day. If you feel that you lack the knowledge and experience necessary to develop your own meal plan, consider the value of working with a board certified nutrition specialist such as Matthew from Lifestyles in Nutrition.


Although wellness may seem like a mere dream, know that it is at your fingertips. The secret to success is overcoming the human proclivity towards procrastination and making lifestyle changes that will facilitate the outcome you want. Start implementing the health suggestions listed above so you can begin leading the life of wellness you deserve!

A Stress Free House Move

To many this title sounds like a fanciful dream: for most people moving house is the most stressful day of their lives. For the modern generation of renters it’s a nightmare that gets repeated year after year. If you’re in your twenties and renting your home, it’s important to get good at moving house as it’s a skill you’ll be exercising a lot.

Plan Early

It’s really never too early to begin your plans to move out. Once you know the date you’re leaving your current flat you can begin to set out a calendar of tasks to complete and deadlines to ensure you’re ready for your move. Buying or printing a physical calendar will make it easier to keep track and allot tasks to different people so the work is fairly shared out, and ensure everything is done in plenty of time, with no last minute desperate calls to removals companies.

Different tasks could include sourcing boxes for packing, informing utilities companies of your move and either beginning a deep clean of your flat or getting quotes from cleaning companies.

Having all of this done well before your last day in your current home means moving out is simply a matter of following well laid plans rather than panic and improvisation.

The Storage Solution

One of the major sources of stress when you move house is having to get all of possessions from your old house to your new one in a single day without anything getting lost or broken. If you have the money to pay for a traditional removal firm, it’s more straightforward but if not you’re relying on friends or simply your own initiative, which is a recipe for stress.

The best way to cut down on this stress is to spread out your belongings so you don’t have to move all of them in one day. If you put awkward, bulky and less used things into storage and only move the essentials on the day itself, it’s a much easier task to accomplish!

If you’re looking for storage byStored London is one of the newest to open. Storage facilities are popping up all over the country, so even if you live in a smaller town you can expect to find at least one or two companies on the outskirts to accommodate the bookcases and boxes of records you’re not going to need the same day you move house.

Health and Storage Units

We all want to be healthy, and we all want to live long and meaningful lives. One of the ways to achieve this is to de-clutter your house and remove from it all the unnecessary belongings that you have been storing there for years. Don’t panic, I will not encourage you you to forever get rid of your gaming console or your favorite sofa. There is one other solution I have in mind here in the form of storage units Miami.

I de-clutter my house on a regular basis. I am lucky to have a rather large garage, yet I know that not so many people are that lucky. On the other hand, I am starting to realize that my garage, which used to be in the past empty, is now almost filled to the brim with all sort of stuff that I might not necessarily need. I just store there whatever I decide that I don’t need to have at home, but I also am aware that any day my garage is going to be absolutely full with no space to fill anymore. This is something that I am preparing myself for as I know that soon I am going to need an alternative solution to this challenge.

As I stated in the beginning of this post, there is a connection between how many things you have at home and how healthy you are. For example, I am one of those people who like to exercise at home. For this reason I store a lot of fitness equipment, which means that I don’t have space for other things such as books for example. Also, when I want to exercise on my yoga mat I need plenty of space in order to be able to move. A very limited amount of space definitely would not help me with that. When I exercise, I need to be able to stretch my legs, and I want to be comfortable while doing so. Only this way can I be sure that I get the most out of my exercise sessions and this is where storage units are going to come to the rescue with everything they have to offer.
