Individuals suffering from chronic illness, such as chronic pain, obesity, or diabetes, need to progress along a series of steps to achieve their health and fitness goals.
A chronic condition is a human health condition or disease that is persistent or otherwise long-lasting in its effects or a disease that comes with time. The term chronic is often applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months.
At MDX Academy, we have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide preventive care through all stages of chronic illness including orthopedic injuries, metabolic syndrome, pulmonary and cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.
After experiencing a chronic illness, the first thing you need to do is become functional again.
The five functional movements are rotation (twisting), pushing, pulling, squatting, and single leg movements (lunges and walking). Once you are functional and can perform these motions without difficulty, you are essentially at zero, and have achieved a foundation on which you build a healthy and fit body.
Physical activity or exercise can improve your health and reduce the risk of developing several diseases like type 2 diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Physical activity and exercise can have immediate and long-term health benefits. Most importantly, regular activity can improve your quality of life.
A person who is fit is capable of living life to its fullest extent.
Physical and mental fitness play very important roles in your lives and people who are both, physically and mentally fit are less prone to medical conditions as well.
Once you are healthy and fit, then you can reach new levels of health and fitness by continuing to exercise, eat right, and follow the lessons that have gotten you to this point.
If your goal is getting better at using your body when you had experienced a chronic illness, then MDX Academy can help. Run faster, jump higher… Achieve your goals!
The body mass index, or BMI, is a calculation used to determine your level of body fat. It can help a doctor determine your overall fitness and your risk of developing chronic diseases.
