Physical Therapy for Aging

Every skin care company’s goal is to find out what creams, ointments, or products can help fight aging. Well here at OSR we may not have a cream, but we have Physical Therapy. Physical Therapy is one of the best ways to fight aging because keeping your body healthy and in tune is one of the best ways to slow down the aging process. Not only does being active reduce your stress levels, but it also keeps your body mobile.

Some of the benefits of Physical Therapy are:

-Relieving Pain

-Increasing Mobility

-Reducing the potential for Alzheimer’s

-Aids in Nutritional Deficiencies

-Promotes Better sleeps

-Stress Relieving

Along with many of these, stress and chronic pain can both lead to obesity. Being overweight is one of the biggest causes of early-aging in your joints and bones. Because your joints are carrying more weight, you are more likely to get injured when you are young than if you were at a healthy weight. Here in Kailua, we can help you with ergonomics as well as showing you the best ways to move on a day to day basis to avoid injury.

Most of our patients are suffering with two or more of the conditions listed above. This is because chronic pain goes hand in hand with tons of other conditions. A high percentage of chronic pain patients are also suffering from lack of sleep or stress. Stress is one of the biggest factors in why people go through cosmetic and physical signs of aging. Luckily, at our integrated health center we offer many stress-relieving modalities like trigger point therapy, electronic stimulation, spinal traction and 60 minute therapeutic massages all along with our physical therapy.

If you are suffering from chronic pain, give us a call at 488-5555 to make an appointment! Also, don’t forget that OSR is now offering BOTOX at our Kailua office.
