Your diet strongly affects the ways in which your body functions, and eating the right foods can significantly improve your health and wellness.

Lifestyle changes can help tremendously when trying to reach your physical goals, and nutrition management is one that our registered dietician can help you achieve.
In fact, we typically recommend dietary changes alongside exercises and other natural techniques as part of a holistic physical therapy program. Contact our Toronto physical therapy clinic today to learn more!
Physical therapy and diet – how are they related?
If your nutrients aren’t properly balanced, your physical function can be impaired. For example, neglecting to eat carbs before participating in strenuous physical activity will cause your body to burn fat as a substitute for fueling your energy.
Your body may even start burning protein, which can deprive your muscles of the strength they normally have. Comparatively, if you have an overload of calcium intakes, but you’re lacking Vitamin D, the calcium won’t make its way to your bones or tissues.
Consulting with our registered dietician can help you understand how much you should be ingesting of each nutrient, and when more or fewer intakes of a certain nutrient may be beneficial.
A healthy balance of nutrients can help enhance healing, function, and overall comfort. For example, omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin C both help in reducing inflammation, which promotes faster healing.
Certain amino acids can also aid your body in synthesizing proteins. Eating the right amount of carbohydrates at the right times can help give you the energy you need to improve your physical performance.
Additionally, our registered dietician can help you achieve weight loss goals and help you to live a healthier lifestyle overall. Whatever your nutritional goals may be, our registered dietician can help you through every step along the way!
