Episode #36 How To Get Your Fitness Journey Started With Physical Therapy And Exercises

One topic I get a lot of questions about is exercise. You may be just starting out. You may have neglected your routine and want to work on your fitness again. Or you may be just like me someone who had suffered from joint and bone injuries but still wants to pursue a healthier, more active lifestyle. What I’ve learned from my experience is that for most conditions that may be preventing you from exercising, there’s a solution that you can find especially with the help of the right healthcare practitioners and professional trainers.

Also in this podcast, I’m going to share to you my personal story on physical therapy. I learned how it is more than just getting a body massage to relieve stress and pain in your joints and muscles. You actually need to go through a series of workouts using some helpful tools. Get to know more about these tools as I give you some tips on doing specific programs which will help alleviate your injuries.
