If you’ve ever struggled with weight loss or gain, you know what a difficult journey it can be. We were delighted to welcome WZZM, Catherine Behrendt and the crew from My West Michigan to our Grant clinic to talk about how physical therapy can help people who are struggling with weight loss. We not only showed them a bit of our clinic, but also our state-of-the-art pool, which we use for aquatic therapy and pool classes.

Janis shared part of her weight loss journey and touched on how physical therapy has helped her along the way. She explained that it can be difficult to exercise when you’re overweight because you tend to feel pain in your joints. There are ways to alleviate that pain and some certain exercises that are more beneficial than others. Physical therapy can help with those concerns.
See the entire weight loss segment below. If you have questions for Janis, she’ll be the featured speaker at our weight loss support group on March 29 at 6pm in our Grant clinic. If you’re interested in learning more about how physical therapy can help you on your weight loss journey, feel free to contact any of our clinics for more information.
