One area we will address which is commonly overlooked is your mindset. What is your mindset about your body and pain? We offer 1:1 coaching with an expert as well as coaching programs with your peers. Mindset management will help you see how your thoughts can drive your feelings and actions. Using thought control, you will be able to create the positive and healthy changes you want in your body.
Home exercise is good for general health. Exercise can also help you to increase strength and flexibility as well as help prevent injury.
Patients with back pain should focus on increasing flexibility while strengthening muscles in the back, abdomen and shoulder regions. Recommended exercises include walking, swimming, stepping and working with handheld weights, bands or balls. As with any exercise program compliance is key.
Yoga is a very powerful practice that can be done at home. We recommend five poses that will take between 15 and 25 minutes to do if you do them consecutively, but you can do any number of them for as long as feels good to your body. They are designed to relax the body and quiet the mind. Blankets, towels, yoga blocks or bolsters will be helpful in some or all of them.
Nutrition and Wellness
Whether you are only a few pounds over your ideal weight or you are in the morbidly obese category, shedding some pounds can vastly improve your pain symptoms. If you suffer from a joint condition or low back pain, losing weight can make it much easier to move around. Not only do you lighten the load on knees and feet, but you also put less strain on your spine. Weight loss provides greater mobility and independence as well as a boost in mood and self-esteem.
Our expert team will provide reliable, clinical nutrition advice to aid you in your weight loss and wellness journey. They will monitor your progress and help you attain an improved life without pain.
