Suffering from Chronic Pain? Fleming Fitness can Help!

Chronic pain is pain (mild or excruciating) that lasts longer than 3 months.  It can be hard for someone suffering from chronic pain to start an exercise program, but they need to in order to improve their function and decrease their pain.   The chronic pain patients we see mostly at Fleming Fitness (Injury rehab specialists based out of Ottawa) have been involved in car accidents which has lead them to their chronic pain.  Most of the times our clients’ pain is debilitating which makes activities of daily living difficult.   What we do at Fleming Fitness, leading fitness and injury rehab specialists in Ottawa, is reset that alarm/trigger that goes off in someone’s head that suffers with chronic pain. Our patients with chronic pain have highly sensitized nerves that sounds alarms or triggers in their brain that “this movement is going to hurt.”  The thought of movement hurts them, very similar to phantom pain.  And it is not all in their head as it really hurts because of the highly sensitized nerves.   Our focus for their rehab is improving their confidence in what they can and can’t do and “rewire their brain” when it comes to movement so their tolerance is higher improving their everyday life. We always work within in someones means and also work with other health professionals to give the best service possible for our clients.  For more information call our registered Kinesiologist, Pat Fleming at 613-882-8434.  Fleming Fitness.

Not All Personal Trainers are the same

There are not a lot of qualified personal trainers in Ottawa, but there are enough. So when choosing a personal trainer, make sure to do your due diligence and find out more about your trainer. What qualifications do they have? What education do they have? What certifications do they have? Do they participate in continuing education courses? These are all important questions to find answers to otherwise you may get injured during your sessions. Don’t assume just because they are certified or they look good they are qualified. Anyone can become a certified trainer. Choose someone with an educational background in health and fitness or kinesiology. They would have a more knowledge on the body, body mechanics and exercise physiology. Find out about their certification and how it is obtained. Is it a weekend course cert or something that takes longer to get. Do they have experience with what your goals and injuries are? Do you get along with their personality? Also keep in mind, a good trainer won’t make you sign up for a long term contract. They do that because they know they aren’t very good and the probability of keeping you long term is only possible with a long term contract. For more info on what we do and how we can assist you in your health, fitness or rehabilitation goals, contact licensed Kinesiologist and injury rehab specialist Patrick Fleming in Ottawa at 613-882-8434.

Numbers Can Lie

So what is important in terms of you reaching your fitness goals? Pounds off the scale? How you feel? How you look? So many people set their goals on the pounds they lose and end up getting discouraged after a few months because they aren’t dropping off fast enough. Maybe you lose only 3lbs in 3 months and figure it just isn’t worth it. You ultimately quit your exercise program and end up going down the wrong unhealthy path again. Sound familiar?

I’m sure you’ve heard muscle weights more than fat. That is actually false. 5 lbs of muscle equals 5 lbs of fat. They weight the same! However muscle is denser than fat and therefore takes up less space. So that individual that only lost 3 lbs in 3 months and is now discouraged because of the lack of results could be a lot smaller. It is possible that they gained 3 lbs of muscle and lost 6 lbs of fat (netting a 3lb lose on the scale) however they dropped a pant size, feel better and more energized. Yet they still quit after stepping off the scale because that’s what they rely on.

For your fitness goals do not rely on the scale. Put it away and rely on the inches lost, how you feel and look. Don’t rely on your BMI (Body Mass Index) from the Dr’s office. Get your body fat percentage tested as that is the reliable source for health.
