Strength training is an important part of reaching your peak physical potential, but there are other health and wellness techniques to keep in mind while you’re doing so: 1. Limit your sitting. Get up every 30 minutes and walk around at work and home. Prolonged periods of sitting can cause muscles to stiffen up and become weaker. 2. Get up and move. Exercise regularly, even if it’s just walking for a short time every day. Moving will help keep your muscles loose and will avoid losing their strength. 3. Nutrition and portion control. Keep your intake of food nutritious, at a comfortable level. Fueling your body with the correct foods will increase your energy and make it easier to exercise. 7 TIPS FOR A HEALTHIER, STRONGER, & ACTIVE YOU!

My Muscles And Balance Improved.

As I approached my 80th birthday, I realized that I had no trouble walking but I had diminished strength in my legs. I had never fallen but knew I had less ability to catch myself if I were to fall. I discussed this with my doctor and she agreed with me that some balance and strengthening therapy would be appropriate. Working with the staff at Advanced Physical Therapy has been the most rewarding. I now feel more secure in my everyday movements. Jason introduced me to the use of Tai Chi principles for strengthening. In the beginning I felt very clumsy. However, as therapy progressed, the process became easier and my muscles and balance improved. I feel this is a practice that I can and should continue at home to maintain good balance and strength as I grow older.” -D.H. I feel like I have a new lease on life. Before therapy, I was weak, no muscle tone, had difficulty with going up and down stairs, had poor balance, was worried about my future. Since therapy, Now I feel like I have a new lease on life. I’m so hopeful. All the problems that I had previously are 90% better. I have so much more strength now and get around so much easier. Thank you Advanced Physical Therapy!” - B.K.
