Even Those Who Know Better Don’t Always Do Better
May is mental health awareness month, and as we’ve discussed, mental health and overall physical wellness are closely linked. We asked each member of our team to share their biggest…
Our primary goal is to bring health, wellness, and happiness to as many people as we can. We know that online resources are often more convenient due to distance from a facility, work/life schedules, or simply comfort of being at home. Based on patient feedback and in support of our goal, we have worked diligently to create a way to share the knowledge and care of our staff with online patients. Our Guided Online Weight Loss Program has been created with you in mind.
With so much information readily available to you at any hour of the day, it makes sense to have someone in your corner who can help you not only sift through the options, but create a wellness strategy that works for YOU. Online weight loss results require work. They require commitment. But, it doesn't have to be something you do alone. We're here to help.
Prior to our first online meeting, all paperwork must be completed to help our providers get the best understanding of your needs. You must also send us a recent photo of yourself (not for advertising) to help us track your progress!
Your first online meeting will be with a physician assistant trained in wellness, weight loss, and obesity medicine. We will get an understanding of your goals and what you need to accomplish them. Your second online visit will be with a registered dietitian who will develop an individualized meal plan for you. Your third online meeting will be with a licensed athletic trainer who will help you develop a workout program specific to your schedule and goals.
We recommend and encourage weekly discussions either via telephone or Skype during the first 3 months.
Once weekly the patient will e-mail three (3) items to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. These items are as follows:
1) a photo of your scale from a weigh in,
2) a photo of your blood pressure reading and
3) a 1-day photo of your diet journal.
Every week the patient will have a scheduled telephone call with a provider at Inspire Wellness & Physical Therapy.
