Spending Money for your Physical Health

Mike Boyle is a great strength and conditioning coach and leader in the field.  He has said that the easiest way to justify spending money on personal training or coaching services is that you will spend the time and money doing something you enjoy vs. spending money being treated for a painful problem.  You can spend the time training with a coach / trainer / therapist or you can spend the time waiting in doctor’s offices for evaluations and xrays / MRIs.  I know which one I would choose.

Come see me for Preventative Physical Therapy and we’ll avoid spending those healthcare dollars and avoid waiting at doctor’s offices.




Preventative Exercise Service

I’m providing a new service which is based on one of my favorite things about Physical Therapy – Preventative Exercise.  Many of the leaders in the PT world have talked about how our model of service is off – only getting involved when people are injured, not getting to people to prevent injury.  I strongly agree with this, especially since many people fall into the same patterns that contribute to their injuries.  Certain muscles are weak, some muscles have shortened, some have high tone, and lastly, but most importantly, many movement patterns have changed.

I will provide this service in your home.  We will work together through any goals you may have and then use assessments to determine what is needed.  This could run the gamut from basic corrective exercises that you can do most days of the week to a full blown exercise program for strength and conditioning.  I think you’ll enjoy this service and really gain a lot from it.

Since Physical Therapy still falls under the model of treating injured individuals, this service leans toward personal training.  While I need a referral from your physician in the State of Illinois for Physical Therapy, I do not for this service as I technically label it Personal Training delivered by a Physical Therapist.
