Agape Physical Therapy

9 Reasons to have a regular exercise program

Physical therapists are movement specialists and experts at helping you get back to the activities you love. Seeing a physical therapist can help reduce your pain allowing you to be more physically active and to help you start a regular exercise program. Why is a regular exercise program so important? Look at some of the scientifically proven benefits to regular exercise: 

  1. Improved sleep
  2. Increased interest in sex
  3. Better endurance
  4. Stress relief
  5. Improvement in mood
  6. Increased energy and stamina
  7. Reduced tiredness that can increase mental alertness
  8. Weight reduction
  9. Reduced cholesterol and improved cardiovascular fitness

Looks like a pretty good list to me! Starting an exercise program can seem daunting, especially if you are experiencing pain or haven't been active in a while. Seeing a physical therapist here at Agape will help you feel energized and better prepared to maintain an active lifestyle.

Agape Physical Therapy has several locations in and around the Rochester area. If you're tired of dealing with the constant pain and are ready to get back to the activities you love, contact us today to learn more.

I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and earned my doctor of physical therapy degree from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. I worked in Scottsdale, Arizona for four years before relocating to Rochester in 2016. I have worked for Agape since Spring 2018 and enjoy connecting with my patients, finding out what motivates them, and helping them get back to the activities they love. I enjoy treating all conditions and am especially passionate about helping people recover after knee and shoulder surgeries. In my free time I love being outdoors with my wife and son.
