Therapeutic Weight Management Program

More Information (PDF)

Testimonial:

Elizabeth Ann began the Therapeutic Weight Management Program. Ms. Ann’s knee pain was limiting her life. She was told by her orthopedic doctor she had to lose 50 lbs before she could have a TKR. She attended therapy twice a week for two months, losing 32 lbs. She still comes 2-3 times a month to weigh in and have her food logs evaluated. At her last visit, she had lost 42 lbs and her knee surgery was scheduled in mid December.

When asked about the program, Ms. Ann has nothing but good things to say. She stated, “Everybody needs help, and everyone here is so nice. You don’t go hungry on this plan and you have someone to watch over you.” Ms. Ann is now able to do her grocery shopping and housework herself.

If you would like to improve your quality of life and health, please call the Physical Therapy department and Graves Gilbert Clinic.
