[FREE Guide] Shows You A Different Solution To Aging Well And Managing Chronic Illness Without Relying On Medications
A Personal Message From Specialist Physical Therapist,
Specialist Physical Therapist
I know my balance is worsening. I know I need to do some exercise to help my heart or lung condition but I don’t know how. I know exercise is a critical part in aging well but I don’t want to go to some fancy gym and look at all those “fit” or “skinny” or “younger” people. I will just exercise on my own. Walking is good enough…
Is that how you’re feeling right now?
If so, you’re not alone. In fact, everyday at The Medical Fitness Center we help people in Eagle, Meridian and Boise who feel this way.
You see, everyone asks us the same questions…
Can exercise really improve my …..balance….or bone density…...or diabetes…..or heart disease?
Is exercise safe for someone like me with balance issues…….or diabetes…..or arthritis….or cardiovascular issues?
Will exercise make my knee pain….or my foot pain or my “whatever” pain worse?
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of inappropriate exercise styles and programs out there that causes people to avoid taking the important and positive steps to help manage chronic health conditions. But we know that an “Exercise as Medicine” approach is the critical step in managing a person’s health. Here are the most common mistakes we see the people of Eagle, Meridian and Boise making....
Mistake #1: Thinking your chronic health condition will just improve with rest.
Mistake #2: Believing that your health will improve with more medications.
Mistake #3: Assuming loss of function and pain is a “normal” part of getting older…
Mistake #4: Believing that since you tried other healthcare professionals (maybe even Physical Therapy) in the past means that it won’t work now.
Mistake #5: Relying on “Dr. Google” or YouTube for exercise advice.
Mistake #6: Believing you will just walk or exercise on your own.
Mistake #7: Trying to figure out which exercises or activities to do at one of those giant fancy gyms, even if they claim it’s only “$10 a month”.
Mistake #8: Believing you can’t safely exercise without increased pain or risk of falling.
Have you been making these mistakes?
If any of this has happened to you, we want to say “we are sorry”...but remind you that you’re not alone.
In fact, we see people just like you every day.
And that’s why we’ve created a free guide for you. It goes over A Different Solution to Aging Well and Managing Chronic Illness Without Relying On More Medications (and you can click on the button above to download it).
But maybe you feel like you’ve read a lot of free information on the internet, and really just want to talk to someone about your problem.
Is that you?
If so, then we have a special opportunity for you (one that VERY FEW clinics offer).
We save a limited number of spots each week for time for people who are not sure what to do or how they could help manage their own health through exercise.
That way, you can tell a professional your story, and get your question answered first, before ever making a commitment to book an appointment.
Does that sound like something you would like to do?
Here’s the most important thing…
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next.
They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
The one thing we can guarantee is that by doing nothing, your health won’t get better.
So the next important thing is to take action.

Specialty Treatment From The Medical Fitness Center...
(and how happy they are now...)
“Ben helped make my 400 mile walk (Camino) in Europe a success! I have Parkinson's Disease and Osteoporosis and wasn't sure I'd be able to achieve my goal. His attentive and thorough exercise program dealt with my balance, core strength and joint issues. He is always so upbeat and willing to share his wealth of knowledge. I love the concept of The Medical Fitness Center - maximize your life and age well!!”
“I am a senior client with arthritis and joint issues. My fitness goals are to remain in the best physical condition possible. Before I found The Medical Fitness Center, I had been going to the gym and participating in a exercise routine which proved to be strenuous for me. My wrist in particular became an issue and required medical care. My Dr. recommended Dr. Ben Shatto P.T. to me. I have been very impressed from the first visit by Ben’s knowledge and professionalism. His staff is very helpful and courteous as well. He listens and is insightful and creative in adapting exercises to my individual needs. I have experienced decreased pain while increasing my strength and balance. Ben is easy to talk to and takes the time to explain things. The exercise time passes quickly, and I’m motivated to work towards healthy aging.My husband is also a client, and his sciatica and back pain has become almost nonexistent in just a few weeks with the exercise plan laid out for him by Ben.We have recommended Ben to others and will continue to do so in the future.”
“Ben's physical therapy methods have relieved my back pain completely. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I have suffered with lower back pain from sports injuries off on and off for 17 years, most seriously 18 months ago, and four years of near constant sciatica. After two sessions, I could feel significant relief. After almost two months, I have no sciatica and my lower back feels like it is getting stronger! The exercises must be done consistently, but they work! Prior to Ben, I sought help from a sports medicine MD, another physical therapist, and paid too much money for 3 months of intensive chiropractic care. These other methods helped relieve pain for an hour or two. Ben's exercises have completely removed the pain now for 7 weeks. Ben is intuitive and cautious, and sees related issues you might overlook. He also motivates and pushes you in the right way. Ben Shatto is the best PT I have ever worked with. I am in my 50s and hope to be working out when I am in my 70s. With the help from Ben Shatto, I now believe I can keep improving my strength and flexibility without injuring my lower back or suffering sciatica. Amazing!”
