EXERCISE IS MEDICINE

First, on a personal note. The developer of our website, who is a physical therapist, shared a great story with me.

Asian young woman warm up body stretching before morning exercise and jogging under warm light morning. Healthy young asian woman exercising by running on step stair. Woman exercise outdoor concept.

His father,overweight for most of his life and a type II diabetic, finally said enough. He obtained the proper counseling and support and lost55 pounds. Not too shabby. The even better news is that he no longer takes any diabetes medication and his back and feet don’t hurt anymore.

Second, here is the bigger picture. The American Medical Association along with physical therapists, has recognized for years that exercise has a number of positive health benefits. Well,they have formalized that position with their campaign “Exercise is Medicine”. Here’s why you should take a look at this site and try to internalize it. Proper exercise helps with:

  • Cancer¬ĽArthritis
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes management
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Obesity
