Exercise and physical activity are essential to both a healthy body and mind. Just ask Kerry Schofield, a Vietnam Veteran who’s making the most of VA’s MOVE! Weight Management Program. He and his wife do gym sessions three times a week with one of our many physiotherapists, and it’s had positive effects on his mental health.
“If you can get the body feeling better, the head follows,” said Mr. Schofield.
People with issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can benefit from the program, even though it’s focused on helping Veterans lose and maintain weight. Through increased physical activity, healthy eating and other behavior change approaches, participants activate chemicals in their brains that promote happiness. It’s truly a win-win situation.
An important aspect of this effort is our physical therapists, who use the latest advances in rehabilitative treatment to help patients regain mobility and functional independence. This kind of career comes with matchless fulfillment, as you’re giving back to men and women who’ve given so much for our country. Plus, our physical therapists enjoy outstanding benefits, including generous paid time off and other perks that support a healthy work-life balance. It’s all part of serving America’s Veterans.
