The most recent exercise guidelines issued by the U.S. government recommend that adults should try to get two-and-a-half hours of exercise a week, and children should run and play for at least an hour a day.

These guidelines are based on studies that show that clear health benefits are derived from regular moderate exercise. Many studies have shown that regular exercise lowers the risk of heart disease, many cancers, osteoporosis, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, depression, and other diseases. In children and adolescents, physical activity promotes cardiovascular and respiratory fitness and contributes to bone health. Anyone who wishes to begin an exercise regimen that addresses limitations should consult with a physical therapist about a plan that is most appropriate.

Of course, proper exercise isn't just important in preventing diseases. It's also vital to recovering from illness or injuries. If you're considering beginning an exercise regimen, or if you need to start therapy for an injury, contact our facility today. Our professional therapists will create a program just for you, whether you're getting into shape or recovering from an accident or injury.

P.S. Weight-bearing exercises (such as walking and running) increase bone strength by placing stresses on bones that force them to become stronger.
