Head, shoulders, knees and toes: the best stretches to see off aches and pains
Soft mattresses and pillows are great for lounging, but after a full day’s work your back and shoulders will start to complain. These gentle exercises should helpWorking on a laptop in bed all day can be ruinous for your shoulders, back and overall wellbeing. “Your back won’t be supported very well,” says Fiona Houston, a physiotherapist and the founder of Physio Inverness. “It will be slumped. Plus, if your legs are stretched out in front of you, you’ll be putting strain through your nervous system.” She explains that this runs from your brain to your spinal cord, all the way to your toes. “By sitting in bed with your legs out in front of you, and your head tilting downwards, at a laptop screen, you’re stretching that system continuously. It’s actually one of the things we would ask our clients about, to see if people are likely to have issues with their nerves.”Houston advises a mixture of stretches for your back. “Sit on a chair and rotate your shoulders forwards and backwards,” she says. “Yoga poses such as the child’s pose (where you sit on your heels and push your shoulders to the ground, head facing the floor) or the cobra pose (where you lie on your front, hands and legs flat on the floor, and arch your head and shoulders off the ground) will help your joints move. These stretches are quick and easy to do, and easy to access online.” Continue reading...

The Rental review – predictable cabin-in-the-woods scares
Dan Stevens and Alison Brie star in this horror-mystery, which has a nicely tense setup but degenerates into clicheInitial high hopes are dashed at the third-act stage of this disappointing cabin-in-the-woods horror-mystery in which actor Dave Franco (brother of James) makes his directorial debut, co-writing with mumblecore film-maker Joe Swanberg.Two couples rent an ocean-front beach house for a luxury weekend getaway: tech entrepreneur Charlie (Dan Stevens) and his partner Michelle (Alison Brie), with Charlie’s brother, Josh (Jeremy Allen White), and Josh’s partner, Mina (Sheila Vand), who is also the co-owner of Charlie’s tech startup. When the foursome arrives, they are instantly nettled by the guy showing them around the property: Taylor (Toby Huss) makes casually racist comments about Mina. And it turns out their ultra-fancy rental has some very strange things about it. Are they being spied on? Continue reading...

Mental healthcare needs an overhaul, and legislative tinkering is not enough | Dan Poulter
Reform of the Mental Health Act will make little tangible difference. As a psychiatrist, I know what the real challenges are• Dr Dan Poulter is Conservative MP for Central Suffolk and North IpswichBeing a doctor as well as an MP, I have spent more time over the past year on the NHS frontline than I have at Westminster. And as a psychiatrist, I have seen the problems created for mental health services by Covid-19 as well as the longstanding, systemic challenges that stand in the way of effectively treating mental illness in this country.The patients that I care for are the seriously mentally unwell – people who need specialist attention because they are living with chronic and enduring conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. It is these people who have been hardest hit by the pandemic as the move to online working has meant that community services and peer support groups have been less accessible.The government’s recently published white paper on reforming the Mental Health Act is welcome, but it would be wrong to suggest that this is a gamechanging moment in how our country approaches mental healthcare. There are many more important issues that the government needs to prioritise if it is truly committed to improving things for patients with mental illness.Reform of the act will do little to change the experience of care in a consistently underfunded system. A system that, for all the talk of parity of esteem between physical and mental healthcare, still lacks the money, workforce planning and community resources to provide adequate support.So what can be done?First, the mental health estate requires substantial investment. Many inpatient wards, where people are forced to live for weeks or months while receiving treatment, are in a poor state of repair and lack modern amenities. As a result, they are not the therapeutic environments that they need to be. On some wards, eight or 10 people share a toilet or bathroom. During the 2019 general election a new hospital building programme was announced. But almost all of this money will be spent on physical healthcare. New accident and emergency departments, maternity wards and cancer centres are wonderful, but if the government is serious about improving mental healthcare then a good place to start would be with meaningful investment in new wards fit for the 21st century.Second, the expansion of talking therapies via the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme in the past decade has been successful in treating people with mild to moderate anxiety and depression. However, when mental health services are already struggling with finite budgets, IAPT has been prioritised for funding at the expense of the training and availability of therapists in other talking therapies. A singular focus on IAPT has meant that there are long and growing waiting lists for talking therapies for people with more severe mental illnesses, substance misuse and personality disorders.Third, we must ensure that more sheltered housing and other forms of supported living in the community are available for people with severe illness, learning disabilities and autism. Not everyone can live completely independently, but an acute mental health ward is not always the right place for someone with a chronic mental illness, learning disability or autism. Far too often these people become trapped in the mental health system and spend many months living as inpatients on acute wards. This needs to change, and the government must develop housing strategies to better support these groups.Fourth, addiction services should be commissioned by the NHS. The Health and Social Care Act made a terrible error in transferring the commissioning of addiction services to local authorities. As Dame Carol Black observed in the first part of her review of drugs report, this has resulted in fragmented and patchy care for patients and an unhelpful disconnect between mental health services and the treatment of addictions. Since 2013, in many areas, funding has been cut and death rates among those dependent on opioids has risen. There is an association between substance dependency and homelessness, but until addiction services are once again commissioned in an integrated manner by the NHS, it is hard to see how any homelessness strategy will be effective.
