Exercise is an integral part of creating long term solutions and sustainable results. At The Wellness Center of Chester County our 1 on 1 Personal Training Sessions are designed to create an atmosphere of learning. You will have an opportunity to discuss questions, comments, or concerns in a private setting with our trainer. The more questions you ask, and the better you understand movement, the more sustainable your results will be.
Dr. Zappy, Chiropractor at The Wellness Center of Chester County, usually develops treatment plans in 2 phases, passive care and active care. Passive care means that the patient is generally passively involved in the treatment. We, as the providers, are generally providing all of the services for you to fix your problem. However, this is not a sustainable solution and creates a provider dependence. We then transition our patients into an active care program that is designed to get the patient actively engaged in the plan. With various stretches and strengthening exercises, you can create meaningful, lasting change for your condition.
Following a treatment plan, it’s important to make more progress and begin a strength and mobility program for your entire body, not just the region of your initial complaint. This is called pre-hab, as opposed to re-hab, and is a more proactive approach to healthcare. This is an attempt to stop problems from arising in the first place! That’s where 1 on 1’s with our Personal Trainer make all the difference.
Stop the problem before it begins!
I injured my low back at work and went o see Dr. Zappy for Chiropractic care. After my back was fixed, he said it would be a good idea to strengthen my core so I didn’t hurt myself again. While we did some rehab stuff in his office, the exercise program he had me do after stopped me from hurting my back again. It’s been almost 4 years and I haven’t had back problems since. Thanks Wellness Center!
I’ve been a triathlete for almost 15 years and I’ve had this chronic IT band syndrome that prevents me from performing at my best. I initially went to The Wellness Center for knee pain. Dr. Zappy said there was nothing wrong with my knee and that I needed to strengthen my gluts so that my IT band would keep getting irritated. Instead of wasting time in treatment, we immediately started an exercise program. I’m competing in the Marsh Man this year with no pain and happy to say, for the first time, I think I’ll set a PR!
My shoulder has been getting in the way of my cross fit off and on for the past few months. I first hurt it during a clean and it hasn’t been right since. My mom goes to The Wellness Center for some other things and told me to check it out. Dr. Zappy said it was a chronic problem because my collar bone wasn’t mobile enough to rotate back while doing the clean motion. We worked on some simple mobility drills and I haven’t hurt it since. Thanks guys!!
