At Persistent Therapy & Wellness, we take a unique perspective on wellness & conservative care: instead of restriction, we focus on resilience. We want to change the conversation around healthcare from reaction to prevention of injuries and diseases.
Fact: the human body is a living organism that can adapt to an appropriate amount of stresses placed on it throughout the entire lifespan. Arthritis and small tears in our bodies over time are actually a normal part of aging. This means that low impact activities and resting too much can eventually do more harm than good. Research has consistently shown that in appropriate doses, resistance training and high impact activities act as a protective factor for our backs, joints, bones, and muscles; so instead of suggesting the avoidance of certain activities, we concentrate on guiding individuals through a movement-centered approach to build on the body’s natural resilience.
