The best medicine is that which helps the body help itself.
Gallatin, TN (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Most people suffering from arthritis are used to taking medication to get on with their day. SuperSlow Zone, a premier personal wellness and exercise studio, is excited to share research that states how physical activity helps provide relief to those with arthritic pain. “Physical activity is just as important for arthritis sufferers as it is for all children and adults,” says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Dr. Robert Ladd, of SuperSlow Zone in Gallatin, Tennessee is excited to be bringing this tried and true method of exercise to Tennessee. “The best medicine is that which helps the body help itself. I have always been interested in preventive medicine and in fact had a Doctorate in Public Health before I obtained a Medical Degree but I found it difficult to do while practicing medicine because, unfortunately, what people usually want is a quick fix. I feel that with SuperSlow Zone I will be dealing with people who are truly interested in maintaining and improving their health. I am very excited to blend the best of my medical degree, and years of work with patients/clients, with the knowledge and practice brought to me by SuperSlow Zone. I have an exceptional staff that has the same commitment I do to proactive health, wellness and exercise…as a team, we afford our clients the greatest gift of wealth…which is their heath and a vibrant life. We invite our neighbors in our surrounding towns to join us in this through SuperSlow Zone,” says Dr. Ladd, owner and Certified SuperSlow Zone® Instructor.
"Arthritis Today," published by the US Arthritis Foundation, featured the SuperSlow Zone® personal strength training system stating, “It can help manage your arthritis pain, strengthen the muscles around your joints, alleviate swelling and lubricate your joints. Strength training, and specifically weight lifting, has been known to decrease the pain and discomfort associated with arthritis.” Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control [CDC] stated that strength training reduced arthritis pain by 43 percent and is as effective, or better than, medications.
“People with stiff or impaired joints who need extra protection when they exercise are the ones who benefit the most from SuperSlow Zone exercise,” says David Fisher, MD, a rheumatologist in Palo Alto, California. At the heart of the SuperSlow Zone® system is an exercise method that best fits the definition of complete exercise by properly and safely building muscle and increasing the resting metabolism, allowing the body to burn more calories even while at rest. SuperSlow Zone® is beneficial for clients with minor to major medical challenges, post- rehabilitation, bodybuilding, weight loss, arthritis and general exercise. SuperSlow Zone® exercise method has a distinguished 30 year history as it was invented during a $3.2 million Osteoporosis Study at the University Of Florida School Of Medicine.
As with all forms of exercise, talk to a physician before beginning a new program. Sections of this article were also published by The Arthritis Foundation. The SuperSlow Zone featured article in Arthritis Today, “Build Twice The Muscle in Half The Time.”
