Preventative Health Care is all about actions that an individual takes voluntarily to help their overall health.
There are many different ways that people will participate in preventative care: nutrition, gym membership, yoga classes, Zumba, Piyo, cross-fit, running club, dancing hula, member of a paddling halau, softball league, basketball league, volleyball league, triathlete, etc… Which ever is your fancy, there are always things that people do to want to get healthy, stay healthy, or better themselves in some way.
For the most part, there are more people out in our community that are afraid to start something because of fear of injury. Or, they tell themselves:
“I just have to lose 5 pounds first before I get started.”
“I have to fix my knee pain before I can go back to playing soccer.”
“I’m not strong enough to do that.”
If you’re telling yourself something that sounds similar or exactly one of those examples, consider consulting with your local physical therapist. Think of Ke Ola Kino Physical Therapy as place where you can utilize a “coach” to help guide you in the right direction. Physical Therapy for so long as been stigmatized:
“The house of Pain”
But, the truth of the matter is that physical therapists are the experts in the musculoskeletal system. I, Dr. Malia Tallett, PT, DPT, am more than just a physical therapist. I ask for you to consider me as your “coach.” If there is something that you want to do for the first time in your life, let me help you get there. I can be your personal trainer, physical therapist, and inspirational leader.
