Exercise Workshop You're Doctor has prescribed Exercise, Now What?!

Menopause Ohio

About This Workshop

Your doctor recommended you start exercising to improve your health- SO WHAT NOW???

Whether it was your primary care provider, endocrinologist, orthopedic surgeon, cardiologist, or internal medicine provider- the message you received may be the same: “You need to start exercising or your health is at risk!”

Unfortunately, that can mean many different things, and there is not always a lot of information to go on. What kind of exercise should I do? How much is enough? Where do I begin?

At Radect we have put together a 1-day workshop to learn how you can safely and effectively start adding exercise to your life. Our workshop is a combination of education and exercise instruction for a hands-on approach to improving your activity level. Our objectives include:

  1. Understand the benefits of exercise in chronic disease prevention

  2. What are the different types of exercises

  3. How to establish a personal exercise routine

Sign up to join us for our workshop and start your wellness journey TODAY!

About The Instructor

Shelly Paulson, Physical Therapist & 200-RYT - Yoga Instructor.

Shelly has been a Physical Therapist for 24 years in a variety of settings, ranging from home care to an outpatient clinic, a TCU, and most recently, an acute psychiatric hospital. She has experience in treating joint issues resulting from injuries or degenerative diseases especially rotator cuff and low back dysfunction, muscle re-education following a neurological event, aquatic therapy, and chronic pain management.

Shelly began practicing yoga 15 years ago after sustaining a running injury and found it so effective she began incorporating the basic principles into treatments for her patients of all diagnoses. Since then she has obtained her yoga teaching certification and has attended hundreds of hours of Therapeutic Yoga and Yoga/Pilates for Rehab seminars.  She has been teaching classes for hospital staff and patients since 2020 and individualized yoga programs are also a large part of her practice as a PT.

More recently Shelly has shifted to a prevention mindset and using yoga principles to treat the whole patient. She uses breathwork, meditation, biofeedback, and mindfulness with her patients of all diagnoses along with individualized exercise plans to promote healing. She has seen firsthand how mental health issues affect physical health and you cannot treat one without addressing the other.

Aside from yoga, Shelly enjoys hiking, traveling, reading, and spending time at her cabin with her husband and three children. She is looking forward to collaborating with the Radect team and using the Radect Health system to partner with clients in their health journey.
