Movement is Medicine!

43 years old Tom Brady is now a 7 time Superbowl winner. Even though the NFL has tried to age him out, Brady keeps coming back and showing up stronger than before.

“This has nothing to do with genetics or luck. He must spend an incredible amount of time focusing on this: flexibility, mobility, pliability, and simply put, longevity.”  -Lance Armstrong in reference to Tom Brady

Movement can be the key to our health, our longevity, and our ability to live and play the way we intend to! In an article written by Pedersen & Saltin (2015), movement is used as the prescription for the management of 26 different chronic diseases, from psychiatric and neurological disorders to metabolic and musculoskeletal disorders. The profound effect of movement on our health is undeniable. And absolutely inspiring!

Remember that you have a team of physical therapists and personal trainers that can help you achieve just about anything you want with prescribed movement and focused attention. Maybe you want to get your A1C down, or you’ve been inspired to race a 5k but you have questions! Reach out to to be paired with a provider for a free consultation.
