Starting in March 2018, Mind Body will offer Bridge to Fitness, a new program for our PT clients that will assist in achieving PT goals. Bridge to Fitness is a supervised exercise program that will focus on technique and the mechanics of the home exercise program. It will also assist with progressing each clients’ program, as tolerated, and in consultation with a therapist. The program will be coached by Paula Johnson, BS in Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Maryland, Eastern Shore.
Please ask your therapist for more information on how to sign up.
