Why should I spend more time at Physical Therapy than the Gym?

Have you been spending time in the gym,but making no progress improving your physical health and wellness? You may be spending too much time in the gym. Yes, it’s possible to spend too much time in the gym.Instead, you may improve your fitness better at Physical Therapy.

When you put a great deal of effort and time into working out at the gym, it’s not surprising to feel disappointed at the lack of results. Why is the regular exercise not improving your mobility? Why are you not losing the weight?

You may not be pushing yourself enough in the gym and may need some consulting from a professional physical therapists. Here are ways physical therapy can help you see results rather than waste time and money at your local gym:

Help you identify workouts that reduce abdominal area fat rather than you wasting time trying to do more crunches to define your abs. Doing to many crunches could cause your to not only suffer from a neck injury but also cause a spinal disc herniation. Instead, your physical therapists will teach your strengthening exercises and interval training that truly develop abdominal muscles.

Stop running with the belief it’s getting you in shape. People get into shape to run better. Instead, go for regular resistance training so you won’t hurt yourself running.

You will learn exercises that focus on all your body parts at physical therapy rather than wasting your time on only one particular body part. You cannot get healthy without working out all your muscles because your muscles are not isolated in your body. You need to do both resistance and interval training to keep your body healthy.

You can learn to enjoy 30 minutes or more of cardio workouts. Cardiovascular exercise is very good for your heart. It will not only make you feel stronger but it can add years to your life.
