Time after time, individuals see their physician and are told their blood pressure is too high, their good cholesterol is too low and bad cholesterol is too high, and/or they are borderline diabetic. They are then advised to “lose weight” and “start watching what you eat”. This vague advice often leaves individuals feeling lost. Most people do not know what exercise is best or how to change their diet to improve their health. Others may feel overwhelmed with these recommendations because of health issues that make it difficult or painful to exercise.
What is the Solution?
MetabolicRx Therapy is the answer to this problem and is offered exclusively at Revolution Physical Therapy.
What is MetabolicRx Therapy?
It is a comprehensive nutrition and fitness assessment and program. MetabolicRx Therapy is a combination of physical therapy, nutrition, fitness and weight loss conducted by a licensed physical therapist. MetabolicRx therapy also offers a registered dietician for nutrition consultation.
To date, the community has not been provided with a service to address its needs. There is no program that helps with compliance and provides accountability. There is also no program that is supervised by healthcare professionals and is potentially covered by insurance.
How Does the Program Work?
First there is a complete assessment. The fitness assessment includes body fat composition, flexibility, upper and lower body strength, and a submaximal endurance test to estimate aerobic capacity which determines optimal target heart rate zone.
Then the information is entered into The MetabolicRx Therapy software program. This allows us to take the assessment information and create a program specifically tailored for each person. Individuals are then guided by our staff and their unique online program to properly nourish their bodies and exercise while losing body fat and increasing lean muscle.
How Long is the Program?
It is an 8-12 week program that requires 2-3 visits a week for maximum results. Most individuals lose 2-3 pounds per week for permanent fat loss. Patients can expect 60-90 minutes per visit which includes physical activity, stretching, pain management if needed and treatment for any inflammation for a successful plan to reach their goals.
What is the goal?
Our goal is lifestyle change through education for long term results. Offered exclusively at Revolution Physical Therapy.
