Surprising Ailments that Suspension Training Can Help

The positive reputation that suspension training has gained recently has caused medical professionals to take notice, and new studies have been conducted that show that suspension training can benefit not only those who are looking to improve their physiques, but that this specialized form of exercise can also help those suffering from other conditions.

Treatment of Unexpected Disorders with Suspension Training

Resistance training is the basis for most physical therapies that are used to treat those who are recovering from sports injuries, but suspension training can also be used to the advantage of those with illnesses not normally treated with physical rehabilitation.

 

By using redcord suspension therapy, you can alleviate the symptoms and side effects of the following three diseases. Always check with your primary doctor before starting any exercise regimen to ensure that you are healthy enough for physical activity.

PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

PCOS is a hormonal endocrine disorder that causes a myriad of symptoms in women, including weight gain and fatigue. Women who suffer from this disorder, regardless of fitness level, should be looking to start a resistance training program, since PCOS puts those afflicted at a higher risk for insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, as well as high cholesterol and blood pressure.

 

The benefits of suspension training in those who suffer from PCOS include increasing your muscles’ ability to manage glucose, improved loss of belly fat, and reducing risk of other comorbidities.

Cancer

The American Cancer society in conjunction with the American College of Sports Medicine has designed a special practice for cancer patients who have been cleared by their physicians for physical activity, and this protocol includes suspension training.

 

Suspension training can be modified for each patient to fit their diagnosis, treatment, and status of recovery, providing them with the many benefits that the healing body can achieve from exercise, including:

  • Enriched mood and quality of life
  • Weight loss and control
  • Improved health of the heart, muscles, and bones
  • Diminished fatigue
