Physical Therapy and Physical Fitness to Overcome Alcohol Addiction

Today in the United States, most alcohol rehab centers rely exclusively on group therapy as their primary treatment method, often neglecting other very important components of healing.  Physical therapy and physical fitness training is a crucial part of the recovery process and is often left out of most 12-step traditional rehab programs.

If you’re dealing with back pain, muscle pain or other body ailments from years of prolonged alcohol abuse, physical therapy can be a great way to start reversing these effects. Exercise releases endorphins supply vital blood flow through the muscular system, promotes good sleep, and improves bone density. All too often, individuals who have been abusing alcohol feel tired, fatigued, and weak.

When these individuals check into treatment, they have very low energy, which is a clear sign that they need to boost their energy system through exercises that challenge their muscular and cardiovascular systems.  Although it may seem difficult to start working out at first, individuals notice an almost immediate increase in energy and mood and begin to slowly but surely feel stronger and more confident.  Another important component that should also be added to an alcohol recovery program is stretching, which has numerous benefits. It heightens and maintains the range of motion in joints, increases circulation, decreases muscle tension, reduces muscle cramping, tightness, and pain, and increases the overall recovery process.  At Passages, our clients receive physical therapy and physical fitness sessions from professionally trained and certified instructors regularly to ensure total recovery.
