Happy Monday, friends!
I’m no stranger to pain, that’s I wanted to take today to tell Arizona local friends about an excellent new opportunity! If you aren’t local but know someone who is, please pass this information along. Otherwise, I’ll be back to our regularly scheduled program this week!
I’ve recently partnered with Petersen Physical Therapy Clinics to run a metabolic therapy or “healthy weight loss program.” The program is designed to fight inflammation and pain through an anti-inflammatory diet.
What Is The Healthy Weight Loss Program?
We know that inflammation contributes to pain, and that food choices and extra weight contribute to inflammation. So that means, my job is to help support our patient’s physical therapy program by working with them to implement an anti-inflammatory diet and facilitate weight loss.
The healthy weight loss program is a series of 6 weekly challenges and weekly anti-inflammatory meal plans. Participants can also take advantage of virtual coaching, facebook group benefits, and optional one on one appointments.
What Are The Goals of the Petersen HWL Program?
Petersen Physical Therapy has a commitment to their patients “to meet you where you are and help you move forward.” This commitment also applies to the HWL program, the goal of the program is to help you move forward and out of pain.
A few other goals of the program are:
- Increase your awareness of an anti-inflammatory eating pattern
- Decrease body weight by 10% or more
- Connect you to a community of likeminded individuals who are following your same journey
How Long Is The Petersen HWL Program?
The program is designed to be a six-week program and to coincide with your physical therapy treatment plan. Participants will have lifetime access to our facebook group, where I jump on for live Q & A’s and hold pop up challenges for current and past participants.
Who Can Join the Petersen HWL Program?
Any patient of Petersen Physical Therapy is eligible to join the program. Petersen Physical Therapy takes all major insurance carriers, and they have five offices located in the valley, including Tempe, East Mesa, Mesa, Gilbert, and Maricopa.
Where Is the Petersen HWL Program Located?
Patients enrolled in the program will check in with their physical therapist 2-3 times a week, depending on their needs at the location most convenient to them. At their physical therapy appointments, measurements will be taken to track progress.
All other aspects of the program happen virtually. Seminars, challenges, and weekly meal plans are sent via email. Virtual coaching with me happens through WhatsApp or Facebook. For eligible participants who feel they could benefit from more one on one support, they can arrange to meet with me at the Tempe location.
How Much Does The Program Cost?
Participation in the program is no additional cost to Petersen Physical Therapy patients. Sessions with your physical therapist are likely at least partially covered under insurance otherwise a cash payment option will be provided to you.
How Do I Sign Up For the Petersen HWL Program?
You must be a current patient of Petersen Physical Therapy to be eligible to enroll in the program. Once you meet with your physical therapist, they will enroll you in the HWL program. To make an appointment at a Petersen Physical Therapy Clinic, head to their website and book an appointment at the location closest to you. The receptionist can help you verify insurance benefits over the phone.
