Why The Next Step For Health Program Is Right For You
As physical therapy patients, many people are anxious to return to sport or a specific activity. However, after a surgery, injury, or replacement, patients find themselves at a loss when it comes to the appropriate way to reinstate the activity. For this reason, OSI and The Training Room created the Next Step for Heath program. The Next Step for Health program is a three month extension of therapy where a Personal Trainer designs a personalized exercise program which combines therapy exercises and other exercises to meet personal goals. Physical therapists work closely with Personal Trainers to oversee the care and proper progression of the patient throughout the three month, independent program. After a fitness evaluation, the program offers either three or six personal training sessions over the three month span where the client gains knowledge of proper form, physical fitness, and sustaining a healthy lifestyle.
While I may be a little biased, I believe that this program is a great tool for patients to take advantage of. Many patients appreciate the fact that trainers and therapists are always around to answer questions, correct form, and be a personal cheerleader, all providing a bit of comfort. One of my most dedicated clients provides a testimony in the video below.
