Encompass Health & Wellness is proud to introduce a new program designed to help men and women achieve functional fitness. Their 8 Weeks of Health & Wellness begins with an initial consultation to determine current body composition, eating habits and stressors contributing to an unhealthy lifestyle. Dr. Kris Pollack and his team will create an individualized plan for each patient.
Each Monday evening new patients will meet at the Encompass Health & Wellness Studio for a 30 minute orientation. After registering, each patient is given a Wellness Score, determined by a 14 point exam, including blood work, body composition testing to ensure the most accurate information. Parameters include: core flexibility, core strength, fat mass, muscle endurance, step test, CRP-High Sensitivity, HbA1C, Triglyceride/HDL Ratio, Diastolic BP, Resting HR, Revelar, Cervical Lordosis, NDI-Neck Disability Index and an X-ray analysis.
Then a 30 minute workout is designed to help get patients’ heart rate up, while strengthening and conditioning the entire body, all in the comfort of their own home. Twice a week, the Encompass staff will supervise the workouts, making adjustments as clients’ conditioning improves.
The Encompass on-site nutritionist Michael Enlow, CNS will develop a meal plan, grocery list, recipes and a smart phone app designed to correct vitamin and mineral deficiencies and offer menu options that are easy to create and enjoy. The key to success is the education to continue healthy eating and developing a DIET (Daily Intake of Energy Treats), which will allow patients to succeed for a lifetime.
Included in the 8 Weeks of Health & Wellness is chiropractic care each week. Chiropractic is great at treating injuries and pain, but it is intended to provide preventative healthcare throughout each patients’ life. Most misalignments and malfunctions in patients’ spines can be present for years before they ever cause a symptom. The vertebrae slowly wear down the joints and interfere with the nervous system.
If you’re tried everything and you weren’t able to make a permanent change in your diet and fitness, this may be the right solution for you. Schedule your consultation today 503-635-4656. Visit www.8-WOW.com.
