A very significant number of individuals who are overweight have in some way been impeded by a long or short term injury. This has possibly prevented them from exercising on a regular basis. Due to the high levels of cortisol associated with their injury they may have found it difficult to eat properly. This in turn could have a negative on their sleep patterns inhibiting the rehabilitation of their injury and their ability to shed body fat.
People who are primarily on weight loss programs can avail of structured physical therapy and rehabilitation sessions in the gym to ensure they can achieve maximum results. In these situations the personal trainer allocated to the client would also be a physical therapist so we can ensure improvements in body composition are concurrent with injury rehabilitation.
Two pronged attack. Many injuries are treated in isolation. The individual attends a physiotherapist, physical therapist or may have had some type of surgery. Rehabilitation exercise is suggested or demonstrated but the individual doesn’t have the required equipment and finds the exercise difficult to remember or coordination is a problem. At NEW YOU physical therapy we offer a complete solution.The Physical therapist/Personal trainer both treats and trains the injury in a controlled exercise environment combined with optimum nutrition to speed up the healing process.
Much like a professional athlete recuperating from injury, progress tends to be faster and more complete because physical therapy and rehabilitation Training OPERATE IN TANDEM. There is a major synergistic effect. Soft tissue is triggered to heal through the one to one physical therapy sessions and controlled resistance movements increase contractile strength so this in tandem with flexibility exercise allows for a more effective and efficient rehabilitation of the specific injury.
There are no set time structures for rehabilitation. A complete assessment of the individual and injury is required, This is carried out by a physical therapist. In some cases further determination may be required through MRI x-ray or ultra sound and evaluated by a muscular-skeletal radiologist to determine the precise nature of the injury.
We can then determine how many physical therapy and one to one personal training rehabilitation sessions may be required. Also before commencement our nurse will complete a full body composition analysis to prepare the specific nutrition required for optimum recuperation.
