How AmeriCare Integrates Wellness and Physical Therapy
There’s a common misconception that physical therapy is just for treating injuries and conditions as well as helping people recover from surgery.
What many people don’t know is that many injuries result from deconditioning in the form of muscle weakness or being overweight. For example, just 10 extra pounds can add 40 pounds of pressure on your knees and other lower body joints. This can speed up wear and tear and cause inflammation. As a result, your risk of developing arthritis and other conditions increases.
AmeriCare’s wellness program can help provide patients with nutritional counseling and a home exercise program to promote overall wellness.
