Physical limitations due to past injuries are one of the primary blockers we see when it comes to patients enjoying the full spectrum of weight loss.
SAN MATEO, Calif. (PRWEB) August 03, 2020
Enara Health, a technology-powered personalized weight loss program focused on sustainable results, today announced that it is expanding its patient services with the addition of a physical therapy program. The new offering rounds out Enara Health’s multi-faceted program by helping patients to address physical limitations that can prevent weight loss.
“The expertise of physical therapists in preventing and treating obesity is currently underrecognized and underused,” said Dr. Rami Bailony, Co-Founder and CEO of Enara Health. “Physical limitations due to past injuries are one of the primary blockers we see when it comes to patients enjoying the full spectrum of weight loss. Without the proper approach, those limitations can lead to additional injuries later, and that subsequently exacerbates weight gain. Many clients stop exercising after suffering an injury from moving improperly.”
Systematic involvement of physical therapists in the treatment of obesity enables a more comprehensive evaluation of patient needs and, ultimately, improved care. Given the complex and personalized nature of obesity as a disease, multidisciplinary interventions are important for addressing the specific needs of patients and giving them a better chance of maintaining their weight loss over the long term.
“By incorporating physical therapy into our program, we are placing the building blocks for optimized physical health,” added Michael Shelver, Enara’s fitness program manager. “Even small improvements in risk factors for physical injury have positive lasting effects in improving one’s overall BMI and health.”
Enara’s physical therapy program is launching initially in California and will be added to the company’s Illinois and Texas locations in mid-2021.
Enara’s goal is to become the leader in developing personalized physical therapy pathways for people struggling with obesity. To do this, the company is building one of the deepest data sets available to help personalize medical weight loss in the United States. The company, which recently initiated a national rollout of its telehealth platform, is using its data set to explore the complicated interplay of multiple lifestyle modifications, as well as the use of medication, when it comes to effectively and sustainably treating obesity.
Residents across California, Texas and Illinois can now enroll in the Enara Health program. Learn more at http://www.enarahealth.com.
