Your Body was Made to Move!

Your body was made to move

THERE IS ONE FUNDAMENTAL RULE OF THE HUMAN BODY:  IT WAS MADE TO MOVE!

There are several reasons why people may not want to participate in physical activity. Perhaps your body simply doesn’t move the way it used to, or perhaps painful areas of your body make it difficult to move in the ways you’d like. Whatever the case may be, the truth is that restriction in movement has the potential to lead to harmful health problems.

1. Decide to get up and get moving.
2. Get up from your chair every 20 minutes and walk around, even if it is just for a few seconds.
3. Walk or exercise at least 30 minutes every day.
4. Drink plenty of water.
5. Stretch your legs, hips, spine, and neck for 10 minutes every day.
6. Don’t push yourself too far if you feel pain.
7. Make sure you are sitting properly at your desk or computer.
8. Take frequent breaks for breathing exercises. Inhale and exhale deeply.
9. Stretch your arms overhead frequently throughout the day.
10. Do strengthening exercises 2-3 times per week.

In order to be healthy, there needs to be a large emphasis on movement. When your body is flexible, strong, well-balanced, and fueled by a nutritious diet, it is able to perform at its optimal levels.

At Reddy Care Physical & Occupational Therapy, we are dedicated to helping you live the best life you can, and our movement experts would be more than happy to help you relieve your pain, re-align
your body, and get moving once again.
