OSTC, more that Physical Therapy. Welcome to Wellness

Many of our patients are initially unaware of the Wellness/Personal Training programs available at OSTC.  These programs are open to the general public for a low cost membership fee.  As an added bonus, any person who recieves physical therapy at OSTC is eligible for a free month of membership.  We have found that this helps clients transition out of physical therapy and continue their exercises.  During this time, patients can use all the equipment they are accustom to as well as direct access to their physical therapist should any questions arise.  

We also offer a variety of Wellness Programs.

Massage is beneficial for relieving stress, improving circulation and improving sleep, all of which are beneficial for your heart. The therapy boosts the immune system, aids in reducing blood pressure, and is an integral part of stress or anger management plans and smoking cessation programs.

Physical Therapy for Heart Health

Whether an individual wants to improve their heart health or general overal health, a personal trainer can help. The average adult has a heart that beats 72 times per minute, circulating oxygenated blood throughout the body, but without appropriate exercise it weakens.

The heart is an amazing piece of bio-engineering, but a variety of factors can interfere with its proper functioning that includes smoking, alcohol, high cholesterol levels and stress. Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and many of those deaths could be prevented with a properly designed program to keep the heart healthy.

Even patients who have smoked for many years and quit or led a sedentary lifestyle can benefit from cardiovascular exercise.   The heart is a muscle like any other and benefits from exercise and lifestyle changes. Many people have experienced difficulty performing even simple tasks like sitting or standing that can be linked to poor heart health.

 It’s never too late to begin a heart healthy perosnal training program. 

8 Benefits For The Heart

Personal TrainingJust 30 minutes of exercise five days a week can significantly improve heart health. A heart in healthy condition beats easier and with less effort. It’s stronger and better able to meet a variety of additional demands made upon it by its owner. Personal Training can help with:

  • Mobility issues
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Nutritional advice
  • Lower stress
  • Weight control
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Increased endurance

Even a modest amount of exercise is beneficial for the heart. Exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous, boring and leave individuals breathless to be valuable. Swimming, biking and walking are all excellent forms of exercise that can be incorporated into a heart healthy exercise program.

Aerobic activities are especially beneficial to strengthen and reduce the risk of heart-related disease and the potential of a second coronary event for individuals who have already had a heart attack. Not all patients may be good candidates for aerobic exercise and other options will be utilized.

Healthy Heart - Longer Life

Your personal trainer has a wide variety of methods, techniques and modifications that can be incorporated into an exercise program for your heart. Your exercise program will factor in your current fitness level and any chronic conditions or limitations. It will be individualized and be adjustable to accommodate your changing needs.

Weight training, aerobic exercises, and group classes are all beneficial for heart health.   Modifications to an exercise can always be utilized when a particular exercise is too hard for a participant.

Water Aerobics is a method that adds an extra level of enjoyment to exercise sessions. You’ll exercise in water that buoys the body, thereby reducing the weight and gravity that’s placed upon your body for easier movement. It’s particularly effective and beneficial if you also have joint pain. The water acts as mild resistance training and soothes away stress that contributes to heart conditions.

Your personal trainer is an expert in body movement and can create a customized program of exercise and nutrition to strengthen your heart, keep it healthy and build endurance. Lowering your risk of cardiac related problems is just one of the benefits of aerobic exercise and can keep your heart healthy for life.
