YOUR HEALTH YOUR WAY

Introducing Our New Wellness Program

I f there’s one thing I’ve learned in all my years of practicing physical therapy, it’s that pain is complex. Your chronic knee pain may feel off the charts, while your neighbor with a relatively similar issue may feel fine, wincing a bit as they go about their day. This doesn’t make your pain more severe than your neighbor’s, nor does it mean your neighbor is tougher.

In our new wellness program, you will learn ways to prevent your pain, improve your health, and get stronger through seminars, classes,

and group meetings. Cancer patients and survivors will have a support group that will provide them with tips and advice for living with their diagnosis. Through our app, those looking to shed some weight, wanting to live a more energetic life, or just needing a continual check-in can learn more about a program and future class offerings. Most of the pain we experience is predictable. I can tell you that if you’re working in a primarily sedentary job and are sitting at a desk all day, you face a high risk of shoulder problems and chronic headaches due to eye and muscle strains. If you are consistently walking across concrete or industrial surfaces, your feet, knees, and hips will eventually scream for relief. Rather than waiting around for your body to notify you of an issue, spending thousands of dollars trying to figure

“WE’RE INTRODUCING OUR NEWWELLNESS PROGRAM. BEING A CLINIC THAT IS DEVOTED TO HELPING PATIENTS LEAD THEIR FULLEST LIVES THROUGH PAIN RELIEF, WE WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS PROGRAM IS ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST YOUR PAIN. “

Pain is a process. Your body is continually adapting and changing, even at times when you feel perfectly healthy. It’s a machine, and you really only think about what your body is doing when a symptom that warrants your care crops up. Your pants start fitting tighter. Your shoulder starts throbbing more. Your head pounds behind your eyes daily. (Page 3 of this newsletter has some great information on what your headaches may be telling you!) Only when these problems and symptoms begin do most people start to react.

At Synergy Therapeutic Group, we want to see you react now — not if and when something happens — so we’re introducing our new wellness program. Being a clinic that is devoted to helping patients lead their fullest lives through pain relief, we want you to understand that this program is about so much more than just your pain. It is available to our patients who are overcoming ailments and roadblocks, but we also want to see patients utilize this wellness program when they are hoping to prevent their pain from happening. We want this program to turn into an education source, a support group, and a tool for better daily living.

out what is wrong, and then finally seeking relief, prevent it all from happening in the first place. You won’t ever be able to guarantee that nothing will go wrong in your body, but you should do all you can to prevent health issues. Your body isn’t like a car or a house; you only get one. Much like you would winterize your house or change the oil in your car, don’t forget about your body’s preventative maintenance. Let us help you live better. –Subrat Bahinipati
