Obesity is becoming a nationwide epidemic for both children and adults. It can contribute to diseases, joint pain and in some cases limits the ability to perform daily activities such as walking. While everyone may strive for a healthy, strong, and active lifestyle, the reality is that this type of lifestyle is not always easy to achieve, especially for those suffering from chronic pain. Fortunately, physical therapy is a great resource for helping you alleviate your pain and reach your fitness goals.
If you’re looking to achieve a healthier lifestyle and you’re not sure where to start, contact Optimus Health Center today! We’ll create a treatment plan specific to your needs so you can accomplish your goals through the best methods for you.
How can physical therapy help me achieve a healthier life?
An active lifestyle is dependent upon movement. Our physical therapist will cater your treatment plan around specific movements designed to increase your strength, flexibility, balance, and overall mobility. He or she will assist you with many of these exercises, but will also provide some simple ones that can be done on your own.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle takes work, but once you get into the groove of it, it becomes much easier. For example, eating nutritious foods is one of the easiest ways to improve your health. Physical activity is the hardest aspect to get in the habit of doing, especially if you are being held back by chronic pain.
Some people try to mask their symptoms with anti-inflammatory or pain-relieving medications, while others unfortunately give up on the idea of being active altogether. Luckily, with the help of Optimus Health Center, it is possible to reclaim your pain-free, healthy lifestyle, and get back to doing the activities you love.

By working with a mobile Jefferson City physical therapist to reach your goals, you can achieve a more active, nutritious, and healthier lifestyle overall. Some common factors our physical therapist may work on improving include:
- Daily exercise: Exercise will keep the muscles warm, which can alleviate pain or stiffness, and get you moving once again.
- Stress management: If you’re feeling mentally stressed, your body can become physically stressed – causing painful conditions to become worse. Taking time to relax can actually allow you to heal quicker!
- Weight loss: If you have some unwanted weight, getting down to your ideal body weight will help with pain and can help you become more active.
