The complexity of healthcare coverage has created an affordable medical need…
Changes in medical coverage have led to increases in patient deductibles and other cost/treatment restrictions and
cost limitations are not always fully recovered upon discharge by your health insurance provider.
Paper work involved to receive the proper treatment also has increased to the point that the “hassle factor” for patients to go through has also decreased the frequency of needed visits to their health care providers.
GBC’s MedFit Post-Rehab program is helping bridge that gap by providing necessary post-rehabilitation and medical exercise programs. We’re not limited by any specific medical condition, as our professional staff has the education and experience to treat a vast array of conditions and diseases. This also includes exercise for special populations. These groups include some that may have special needs or concerns, which may require extra attention during their rehab/exercise program.
We also work with other special populations who may just need to improve their skill levels and knowledge, or increase awareness of conditioning by participating in a regular exercise program.
The medical conditions listed below will identify who will benefit from our medically supervised post-rehab/exercise program…
Exercise Induced Asthma
Pre and Post Natal
How the MedFit program can benefit those who have had long layoffs from exercise due to disease or injury…
This is especially important if you are looking to start a new exercise program or return to exercise after an injury or a period of inactivity. It is important to make sure you are exercising in a safe and effective way, our MedFit staff can help with that.
Also a great program for our older population…
As we age, there is a natural decline in physical function and independence with daily living. Participating in medical exercise/ post-rehab program has been shown to decrease the functional decline in the aging population. Increased physical performance can lead to a greater independence and satisfaction.
The MedFit Pre-habilitation program is designed for patient’s to begin an exercise program to ensure they are at their strongest and most mobile before surgery. Research shows people who participate in this type of program prior to surgery have significantly better outcomes. Plus, many of the exercises you perform before surgery, you will also perform after surgery.
Benefits of a pre-habilitation program…
- Prevent sever decline in strength & function after surgery
- Improve mental and physical outcomes
- Return home quicker after surgery
- Decrease recovery times
