Get Active Full Body MOT

At CSPC, we recognise the challenge of returning to or taking up exercise for the first time, so we have developed a ‘Get Active’ Full Body MOT to help people get back being active, without their body letting them down and preventing them from enjoying exercise. Our Get Active Full Body MOT will help you develop your confidence and enjoyment in exercise

Where Do You Start?

At CSPC, we believe that exercise should be done healthily and with minimal adverse impact on the body. We believe that it should be enjoyable, putting a spring in your step and helping to improve confidence and self-esteem. We also realise that many people don’t exercise because they don’t know how to start, or are worried about doing themselves damage, or think that as it hurts, it can’t be doing any good.

Our Get Active Full Body MOT is designed with active, soon-to-be active, and recently active people in mind. We assess where you are now and help you work towards an achievable fitness level, whether it is a reduction in pain and improved function so you can run around with the children; improving strength and flexibility, to enable you to become fitter and to stay active healthily; or returning to earlier levels of activity. 

During your MOT, the physiotherapist will ask you what your goals are, what any current issues are, and will tailor the assessment to your requirements. We look at movement of the spine, pelvis and other joints in the body. We look at general and specific strength deficiencies and requirements for what you want to do. We will also look at how you move. We then bring this together to produce a plan to help you to get fitter, healthier and stronger. This may include specific strengthening or stretching exercises, exercises to help you move better, or advice on how you can steadily build into the exercise you want to do. We may also advise you to seek further treatment for specific injuries or suggest referral on to other specialists if required.


After a period of time without exercise, whether because of illness, injury, pregnancy or simply being busy, the muscles in the body naturally become less strong, through reduced loading and this is normal for everyone. To remain injury free when returning to exercise, it is advisable to build up a base of strength and flexibility, so that your body can cope with what you are going to ask it to do, and then to slowly increase the volume of exercise being done, so that your return to sport is both enjoyable, and with minimal risk, so that it can be maintained long term. At your MOT, we can advise you on how to do this.


If returning to activity after pregnancy, it is important that the abdominal muscles are retrained properly. Additionally, as there will be some lasting laxity (looseness) in other joints in the body, it is important to work on strength and stability.

Cost: A 90-minute Get Active MOT including assessment, exercise, strengthening and stretching advice and a report is £200 with a physiotherapist.
