The last in our series for Heart Health Month focuses on utilizing physical therapy as a means for prevention of strokes and heart attacks. Taking a therapeutic strategy as a preventative means to a healthier heart is not only going to allow you the most effective way to take charge of your health; but, it will also mean that you get expert one-on-one advice from highly skilled physical therapists.
Overall wellness is immediately associated with exercise and heart health is especially associated with physical activity and exercise. For those in the Twin Cities area you have an amazing alternative to simply joining a gym and hoping that you stay motivated. Many Minnesotans have Live Your Life Physical Therapy, a group of physical therapists that actually come to you. Having the therapist come to you not only helps with compliance and motivation but offers an alternative to the fear of gyms and those costly gym memberships that end up being paid month after month without you ever stepping foot into the facility again. We can actually inspire you to use that gym membership by meeting you THERE if that is where you would prefer us to treat you. As a matter of fact, we will meet you wherever you exercise or want to exercise. Your personal Live Your Life Physical Therapist will come to you for a one-on-one 60 minute session to address your specific needs. We will treat teenagers, adults, and older adults; putting the focus on getting you into an active lifestyle. An active lifestyle does NOT mean having to jump around non-stop, bend, run, and over exert yourself. An active lifestyle means a lifestyle that incorporates movement that YOU can do. One call brings us to YOU to assess your needs and abilities so we can create a plan for you. Call Live Your Life Physical Therapy to become active and heart healthy.
