WEIGHT LOSS and PHYSICAL THERAPY

Physical therapy is a proven weight management tool.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 68 percent of adults over the age of 20 are either overweight or obese in the United States.

This is a staggering statistic that shows how important it is for us to address the problem of obesity on a direct level.  Physical therapists are all too aware of the dangers and damage one can do to your body if you launch into the incorrect fitness program without any supervision.   With a weight loss goal in mind, it is of utmost importance to first restore flexibility to your body, then strengthen, and improve cardiovascular endurance.  Another important factor that they will teach you is to breathe correctly while working out.  One of the most sensible decisions you can make is to have a physical therapist work with you to develop an individualized physical activity plan that is manageable for you.   This way you can ease into your new lifestyle while dealing correctly with your physical ailments.    Our physical activity programs are designed to help establish a life-long habit of healthy physical activity,  one which you will enjoy, can manage and will help you keep your weight off. 
According to the Mayo Clinic, increased physical activity or exercise is an essential part of obesity treatment. Most people who are able to maintain their weight loss for more than a year get regular exercise, even simply walking.
To boost your activity level:

  1. Exercise. People who are overweight or obese need to get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity physical activity to prevent further weight gain or to maintain the loss of a modest amount of weight. To achieve more-significant weight loss, you may need to exercise 300 minutes or more a week. You probably will need to gradually increase the amount you exercise as your endurance and fitness improve.
  2. Keep moving. Even though regular aerobic exercise is the most efficient way to burn calories and shed excess weight, any extra movement helps burn calories. Making simple changes throughout your day can add up to big benefits. Park further from store entrances, rev up your household chores, garden, get up and move around periodically, and wear a pedometer to track how many steps you actually take over the course of a day.

Physical therapy exercise will not only help you with your weight loss goals but can also help boost your mood, ease depression through increased physical activity, relieve stress and anxiety, enhance your self-esteem, and improve your whole outlook on life.

Your physical therapist will do a full evaluation of your individual case, taking into account any illness, physical disability, injury and medications you’re taking.   They will then assess your strength, #fitness, flexibility and movement deficiencies.   With all this information they can then put together an individual exercise program designed just for you and your body.   Starting slowly and gradually increasing your activity levels, they will work hand in hand with you taking you through your program until you develop the confidence and comfort in performing it independently. 

Making the decision that you want to lose some weight is half the job done.  Now getting the help and support from a trained and educated physical therapist will give you the confidence to make this a lifelong change to your overall health and emotional well being.   

Remember, limited mobility should never stop you from exercising to lose weight!
