INCREASE YOUR ENERGY BY GETTING UP & MOVING TODAY!

Do you feel sluggish or fatigued, as if it’s difficult tomotivate yourself to get moving? Do your sore muscles or achy joints just add to that lack of motivation? If so, your body may be experiencing some physical problems. Living a sedentary life is one of the main reasons why people report having low energy or feeling chronic day-to-day aches. Long car commutes, desk jobs, watchingT.V. once you get home fromwork… many people live their lives this way, with very little physical activity. While it may not seem like it is making an impact at the time, this type of sedentary lifestyle can damage your body over time. Contact Adams Physical Therapy Services today to figure out how a consistent exercise plan can increase your energy and help you live a healthier life! Why is physical activity so important? When you don’t participate in frequent physical activity, your muscles begin to weaken and over time they can even begin to atrophy. Inactive lifestyles also cause

joints to become stiff and can alter the physiological chemical processes within your body. In fact, your circulation and lymphatic systems can slow down, which can pose harmful risks. These systems work in producing and excreting toxic wastes (such as cholesterol) and these wastes can build up when the systems aren’t functioning as efficiently as they should. Lack of movement and poor posture are the causes of several types of pain, including lower back pain, neck pain, hip pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, and headaches. A slumped posture can even change the shape of your spine over time, in addition to closing your shoulder joints and tightening up the tissues around your hips.These consequences can cause severe pain and may result in a host of other problems if lifestyle changes are not made. If you are ready to gain pain relief, call to talk to a therapist today at (888) 222-0130! adamsptservices.com

WE MAKE IT EASY TO

SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT!

When I was done I no longer needed my wheelchair!

“I was seen by Roy Adams and his amazing staff at Adams Physical Therapy Services back in 2009. I had been in a really back accident and when I came into his office I was in a wheel chair. I could not walk and had no use of my left arm. The staff at Adams Physical Therapy Services worked on me 2 times per week for almost 5 months. When I was done I no longer needed my wheelchair and I could walk and I also had more movement with my left arm than the surgeon said I would have. Anyone that asks me about Adams Physical Therapy Services, I will tell them that they are very good at what they do.”
