Nutrition and Lifestyle
FitCare connects rehabilitation and fitness in the continuum of care. Most patients who maximize the benefit of physical therapy need to continue to exercise on their own after being released by their physical therapist.
MedGem is a simple, accurate test that measures your individual “Metabolic Fingerprint.” Your metabolic fingerprint is unique to you and a crucial factor when creating an individual calorie budget and exercise plan that will let you reach your goals. The results of MedGem testing will help you reach your healthy lifestyle goals without hitting any frustrating plateaus. The appointment takes approximately 30 minutes. Call HealthPoint in Cape at 986-4440 or HealthPoint in Jackson at 755-2301 to schedule your appointment.
