It may be totally obvious but “Physical” by Olivia Newton John is the most popular physical therapy song. Who can forget the video of Olivia jumping around in her spandex and leg warmers singing, “Let’s get physical”? Physical therapy often involves exercise to help improve mobility and strength, and this song can really get you moving.

It’s time to get FYZICAL!

Do you have aches and pains that are slowly starting to creep up? Maybe you’re not as agile as you were in your youth. You notice your waistline has slowly started to expand. Let’s face it, when the body starts to deteriorate and we feel it’s beyond our control, it can be a bit scary. It’s inevitable though; these are all parts of aging, right? Think again! You don’t have to suffer and accept what seem to be the “normal signs of aging”, there’s a way to stop this slow decline and repair and maybe even reverse the damage that has been done.

A unique medical and scientific-based physical therapy organization, called FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers, is providing solutions to what may seem to be unavoidable side effects of getting older. Here, the therapists are offering the distinct and comprehensive approach of, “fixing bodies and changing lives” and are achieving this with world class doctors of physical therapy and high tech orthopedic and balance equipment.

Spine, joint, and soft tissue injuries as well as balance issues, dizziness and vertigo increasingly have better treatment options. FYZICAL delves deeper to get to the root of the problem and customizes a treatment plan. They can show you how to age properly and get solutions to improve ailments that interfere with daily life, so you don’t have to grow-old-gracefully, but rather take control and reverse the signs of aging “So many of the problems we face are not the inevitable consequence of growing older, but rather of inactivity and failing to get the proper professional testing and advice,” states Keefe Fugleberg, cofounder of FYZICAL.

Spokesperson and patient, Olivia Newton-John, age 69 is living proof of the results that take place when treated at a FYZICAL center. Olivia believes that Americans can enjoy optimal health, wellness, and lifelong vitality even as they grow older. “FYZICAL is an innovative group of physical therapists who are bringing prevention and holistic care to people across the United States,” states Olivia Newton-John. “FYZICAL therapists are now using their extensive training to not only heal people after they are injured, but to prevent them from getting injured in the first place.”

FYZICAL not only focuses on orthopedic problems, but has a world-class balance program with an emphasis on improving balance and fall prevention. Not surprisingly, there is a direct correlation between balance and injuries due to a fall. All FYZICAL therapists go through advanced training by Brian Werner, PT, MPT, National Director of Balance Center Programs and a recognized “guru” in the field of vestibular rehabilitation and research. This training allows for a deep knowledge on the diagnosis of patient disorders to determine the ideal treatment method.

Below is a sample of the many scenarios associated with balance disorders. If you can answer yes to any of the questions below, FYZICAL therapy could help:

o Have you fallen more than once in the past year?
o Do you have difficulty sitting down or getting up from a seated or lying position?
o Do you have numbness or loss of sensation in legs and/or feet?
o Do you feel unsteady on uneven surfaces?

FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers

Extensive specialist testing with state-of-the-art equipment and hands-on physical therapy are performed for improving balance and vertigo. In patients with chronic balance problems, only vestibular rehabilitation has shown to improve function and performance when compared to medical therapy or general exercises.
Balance therapy could also be beneficial to you if you:

• Live with vertigo or a balance dysfunction;
• Want to feel better and move better when you are out in the community;
• Need to recover from chronic dizziness;
• Want to overcome a disorder or neurological condition that is causing you to fall or fear falling;
• Have been in an auto accident or injured on the job and are experiencing dizziness;
• Want to improve your strength, endurance, and physical conditioning;
• Would like to prevent a risk of falling.

FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers

The therapists at FYZICAL realize how vitaly important balance is for independent living, as well as for work activities, walking, exercise, sports, and loving life in general. The Safety Overhead System (SOS) is a harness support system with an overhead track and moveable trolly that allows the patient, while in a secure harness, the ability to perform exercises without fear of falling down, which enables the Physical Therapists at Fyzical to gently push for progress.

Other key benefits of the SOS include the following:

• Boosts confidence by reducing fear of falling;
• Allows for natural range of motion;
• Provides a safe atmosphere for balance and gait training;
• Gets you back to full strength in less time;
• It’s comfortable and easy to use;
• The harness can be fastened in a standing or sitting position.

Consider these eye-opening statistics on falls:

• Over 1/3 of the population over 65 years of age will fall down every year;
• 95% of hip fractures are caused by a fall;
• $28.2 billion per year is spent in medical costs due to falls.

FYZICAL also offers a very specialized approach to whole-body fitness and health called BODYQ, which gives a specific health score, from 0 to 100 (Olivia Newton John scored a 90!).

BODYQ is like a check-up at your doctor, but for your muscular-skeletal system. Each patient is given a score as a way to set a baseline and track their fitness levels, strength, movement, function, general health, vision, and hearing. BODYQ is given on an annual or bi-annual basis. This advanced testing protocol uses functional imaging, with full-color graphics and easy-to-read results. BODYQ is used to identify weaknesses and issues that can quickly turn into injuries.

BODYQ wellness programs help you in other ways as well, whether you want to increase your energy level, recover from injury or illness, run your first 5K, lose 10 or 100 pounds, or just feel stronger.

“People are living longer and doing all they can to remain healthy and active for as long as possible. And who is better equipped to be the stewards of a patient’s physical health than a PT? Nobody! PTs are able to enhance a patient’s well-being, regain their freedom, and even save their lives by offering such services as fall-prevention programs, and health and wellness programs to achieve optimum health,” says Jim Abrams, CEO and Co-Founder of FYZICAL.

Meet Your Local FYZICAL Physical Therapists

There is a reason you want to choose to go to FYZICAL instead of the hospital or a therapy clinic. These are some of the most highly-skilled movement specialists in the nation, with well-rounded education and experience, each bringing a unique skill set and philosophy to their practice.

You will receive a comprehensive initial evaluation with a personalized plan of care. Your therapist will not only look at the locations of your pain or impairment, but they will access other systems and body parts that may have an influence on your condition, for example, if you have hip pain, they will also look at your lower back, or your balance system, to fully understand, diagnose, and treat the issue at its core and integrate all the moving parts. During your treatment plan, you receive close attention and your progression expectations are clearly and thoroughly explained through every stage of your recovery. Meet some of the area’s best Physical Therapists that make the FYZICAL experience one that goes above and beyond.

Keefe and his wife Lisa partnered with FYZICAL to help develop the concept and became the first FYZICAL franchisees in the country. A motivating factor for Keefe and Lisa in starting their own practice came from their athletic background where they had a number of injuries and knew that staying healthy and fit was a lifelong endeavor and not a 4-6-week program. Working from the ground up, Keefe and Lisa have created a professional and comfortable environment with a focus on the client.

The team takes on a more holistic approach, looking at each patient as a whole rather than focusing on one part that needs to be “fixed.” They accomplish this by using custom, cutting-edge equipment and innovative techniques that are perfectly matched to the patient’s specific issues and problems.

In starting their FYZICAL practice, Frank and Melanie put the right team in place and have achieved operational and clinical excellence, an important combination to be sustainable in the ever-changing healthcare industry. It is of utmost importance for the team members at their locations to know you and to really know what you want to achieve. The experience of the therapists’ high skill level coupled with genuine care will make a difference that can be life changing.

FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers

It is important that from the first time the patient speaks to one of the customer care specialists (usually referred to as receptionists) fears are set aside and a connection is made. Patients can trust that they are in good hands. This empathetic nature is carried on throughout the treatment. Concerns are addressed with compassion, from being in pain, to not being able to lift your grandchild, to the fear of falling when stepping up onto a curb. When a patient graduates from their injury recovery, there are often happy tears because of the transformation back to their normal lifestyle or better. Word of mouth praise is recognized as the biggest compliment assuring team members they have done a great job and knowing they are responsible for getting patients back to loving their life.

FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers

One of the ways patients rehab back-to-health is through a Therapy Pool Treadmill offered at this state-of-the-art center. Aquatic programs are personalized to fit the needs of each patient. With aquatic therapy, rehabilitation can begin sooner because the water supports joints while providing the resistance needed to assist recovery. The benefits are numerous and include increased stability, decreased pain, reduced joint stiffness, and improved cardiovascular endurance.

FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers

Continuing world-class balance and physical therapy education is provided to all therapists so you can rest assured that every person responsible for your health and wellbeing has the highest level of competency. Each year, they are trained on the latest methods, evidence-based techniques, and principles of physical therapy. While a direct focus is paramount in patient care, team members are encouraged and empowered to reach their full potential and work towards their life goals. It’s a culture that has been created through a set of core values. The result is a clinic that functions harmoniously with passion for the mission and goals of the practice.
