Often people come to physical therapy because they find themselves enduring physical pain from injuries. Little do they know, suffering pain and injuries are serious roadblocks to losing weight and getting back in shape.

Why do physical injuries make weight loss so challenging? There’s a science behind it. When our bodies are in pain, we actually become hungrier and big meals no longer make us feel satisfied. Pain also reduces the intensity of workouts so you will get less results. It’s just how our muscles function. Anytime we are in pain, our muscles look for ways to relieve us from physical pain. Moreover, our muscles regulate our metabolism. If we have very little access to our muscles, our metabolic rate slows down.

Physical Therapy can help you improve your flexibility and metabolism by strengthening your body’s functional movement. The better your movement baseline, the better your health. The average American’s movement baseline has reduce by 50%. That means the body is not as efficient.
