Do you want to be happy, healthy and functionally fit well into your coming years?
Have you noticed that it is getting more and more challenging to stay physically active as your life gets busier?
Unfortunately, even though many people manage to push themselves exercising, it often turns out to be the wrong sort of exercise – either hurting them, or not getting the results they desire.
Getting the right guidance
Instead of just ticking off exercises like a list of chores, a better way to go about it is getting some guidance to help you do the right exercise in the right way at the right time.
This will help get better results. This is especially the case if you are recovering from injury and wanting to get back into activity.
At Canberra Spine Centre, our chiropractors utilize the most up-to-date rehabilitation protocols to help get our patients back to being active as quickly as possible.
One of the tools we use is called Physitrack. When used by a professional, this helps to provide you with an effective program to help you to achieve your rehab and fitness goals.
What is Physitrack?
Physitrack is web-based exercise and rehabilitation program that your chiropractor can use to create a specifically tailored exercise program for your individual needs.
As well as clear videos and instructions to help you get it right, the online interactive system helps you track your progress as well as communicate with your chiropractor.
The benefits of expert guidance
1. Better and faster results
When people are left to their own devices, many of them wind up on cardio machines or just moving aimlessly from one piece of exercise equipment to another in the gym.
With a targeted exercise program, your chiropractor can ensure that you spend your time performing the right exercises with the proper equipment.
In this way, you can achieve better results while minimizing wasted time on things that can either cause harm or won’t work for you.
2. Avoid Injury
Without proper guidance, it’s easy to do the wrong kind of exercises, or do them with incorrect form, contributing to injuries.
An example would be lifting weights with poor form – recipe for potential injury.
Your chiropractor, using a program like Physitrack can teach you the right way to perform an exercise, reducing the risk of injury.
3. Long-term motivation
As we get older and other commitments compete for our time, it gets harder to stay motivated towards exercise.
Your chiropractor can use Physitrack to send daily reminders to his or her clients and also track their adherence to the program online.
They can provide structure, plan for you and adapt the program to your changing needs to help keep you motivated with your exercise program.
It is easy to fall off the wagon when you have no one to hold you accountable.
At Canberra Spine Centre, we use the Physitrack online tracking system to keep track of clients and help them adhere to their exercise regime.
When you know you’re being tracked, you’ll feel more accountable and less likely to talk yourself of doing your exercises.
5. Establish lifelong exercise habits
Using Physitrack, your chiropractor can not only help you achieve your fitness goals, but also re-evaluate your attitude toward health and wellbeing.
Expert guidance can help build an attitude of wellbeing and fitness as a priority in your life, helping you live a longer and healthier life.
