Metabolism is the process by which your body uses “fuel” (like glucose) and turns it into energy for your muscles and other tissues. With Metabolic Rehabilitation, people with Diabetes can re-educate their bodies to utilize the excess glucose in their blood.
According to peer-reviewed studies, supervised programs like the one we offer are far more effective than programs that offer exercise counseling alone. We understand that simply managing your condition with just medication, or trying to attempt a lifestyle change on your own, can be a huge undertaking. Each person’s body has an optimal exercise level that enables them to control their glucose levels. It may be different for each person, and that’s why supervision by a Doctor of Physical Therapy is so important. Metabolic Rehabilitation can help people with Diabetes take control of their condition — without medication’s side effects, and with a trusted guide at your side.
