The New Year is here, and it’s time to refocus on yourself. So, what exactly is your body saying to you? If you’ve decided to make 2019 a year dedicated to improving your health, physical therapy can help you reach your goals.
Does your New Year’s Resolution Include Being Healthier?
Could physical therapy help you with your goals? According to this list of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, many people prioritize their health at the start of the year. However, you may be surprised to learn, depending on the patient’s needs, physical therapy can safely help patients reach six of those ten goals:
- Exercise more
- Lose weight
- Get organized
- Learn a new skill or hobby
- Live life to the fullest
- Save more money / spend less money
- Quit smoking
- Spend more time with family and friends
- Travel more
- Read more
For example, people with limited mobility can be enabled to take up new hobbies or skills after working with a physical therapist. Likewise, it is easier for people with chronic pain to spend time with family and friends as their bodies feel better. In addition to encouraging patients and educating them on their injury, a physical therapist will create a personalized care plan to be followed at home. By keeping up with your exercises, you will be able to strengthen your body. This could help later lead to exercising more, which may help you reach your ideal healthy weight goal.
