Health & Wellness Q&A
What is Health and Wellness:
This can be defined as a patient’s choice to take action towards reaching an optimal state of health, both mentally and physically. Dr. Lloydine Jacobs ensures that her patients achieve this through incorporating complimentary personal training sessions, massages, and IV vitamin infusions to their post-operative plan of care.
Included in patients’ treatment plan, a personal trainer will evaluate and assist the patient in executing necessary exercises to build strength in the areas Dr. Lloydine Jacobs deems necessary. Patients will receive quality assistance in working towards a stronger and healthier body. This process helps to ensure a successful recovery.
Benefits of Personal Training:
Personal trainers guide patients to perform the correct exercises, helping build endurance and power in the areas most needed, while monitoring if the exercise is being performed in proper form. Improper form can lead to muscle strain and further damage of an injured area. The use of a personal trainer minimizes the likelihood of injury or increased pain due to incorrect movement.
Massage therapy is essential in releasing muscle tension and pain. Dr. Lloydine Jacobs will provide complimentary massages to her patients when they receive treatment. A trained massage therapist will work with her patients to manipulate muscles and other soft body tissues to relieve pain, improve circulation, increase relaxation and contribute to the patients healing process.
Benefits of Massage Therapy:
Massage therapy helps patients reach a place of relaxation while physically contributing to the reduction of their body pain. Through massage therapy the tissue in the treatment site is calmed and blood flow is increased, resulting in minimized discomfort.
IV Hydration Therapy
Patients will receive hydration through a miniscule tube inserted into a vein. Hydration therapy allows beneficial nutrients to bypass the digestive system, allowing for a more direct shot of vitality to the body. Infusions can be tailored to what Dr. Jacobs feels will be most advantageous to your post-operative recovery. This treatment is performed in the office by a licensed medical professional.
Benefits of Hydration Therapy
It has been found that IV hydration infusions have led to increased levels of energy, hydration, proper sleep, and an overall improved mood. Vitamins taken by the mouth are only absorbed at a rate of 50% where vitamins given through an IV have a higher absorption rate of 90%, leading to a higher rate of health benefits with more direct results.
