Health Information

 

Fort Myers / Cape Coral

Reclaim your overall health...

Our programs and service lines are available for patients or members with a prescribed medical condition. We can help you with medical issues such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and more. Lee Memorial's wellness centers are members of the Medical Fitness Association. Medical fitness is about maintaining health and preventing disease.

A safe and healthy lifestyle is an ongoing daily effort, sometimes unfortunately interrupted by a medical problem or hospital stay. Once you have completed any inpatient or outpatient therapies, returning to a follow-up, professionally-prescribed exercise program can also assist in the prevention of further problems.

As part of the Lee Memorial Health System continuum of care, the Nationally certified and degreed exercise professionals at the wellness centers will teach you progressive exercises that improve flexibility and strengthen the body. Focus is on preventative and rehabilitation techniques for proper body movement and posture at work and at home.

Body Composition: Measure body fat, girth measurement and body mass index.

Fitness Assessment: Resting blood pressure and heart rate, height and weight, flexibility test, body composition, sub-maximal treadmill test, and muscular strength and endurance. 

Personal Training:  A personal trainer can help you achieve your fitness goals in a variety of ways:

- Knowledge.  All of our personal trainers hold professional certifications.

- Safety.  Proper form reduces the likelihood of injury.  Our personal trainers are very conscious of your safety and will instruct you on proper form, technique and use of equipment.

- Efficiency.  Save time by having a thorough workout preplanned by your trainer.

- Accurate exercise program progression.  To maximize your results, our personal trainers keep your workouts fresh and interesting.

- Motivation and supervision.  Personal trainers make sure you get the most out of your workout.  Their attention to detail can make a big difference in your performance and help you meet your fitness goals.

Polar Body Age Assessments: Resting blood pressure and heart rate, height and weight, flexibility test, body composition, estimated VO2 test, and muscular strength and endurance. Professional printout with results provided along with your own "body age".

Balance Clinic: This 4-6 week program provides participants with a detailed balance proficiency evaluation using the state-of-the-art Smart Equitest computerized machine. This technology assesses deficiencies of sensory impairment, motor impairment and functional limitations. Professional staff will design a comprehensive home exercise program along with suggestions on how to make their home safer and strategies to prevent future falls.

Pre-employment Fitness Screening: Applicants for certified positions (law enforcement and corrections) are required to complete an agility test (fitness evaluation). Screening includes a resting blood pressure and heart rate, body composition, flexibility, muscular strength, muscular endurance and sub-maximal treadmill test using age related normalized standards.

Driver Evaluation: Lee Memorial Health System's Driver Evaluation and Training program provides a comprehensive evaluation conducted by a licensed Occupational Therapist who is a certified driving rehabilitation specialist. The evaluation looks at an individual's skills related to driving such as reaction time, decision making and ability to multitask.

Rehabilitation Services: Lee Center for Rehabilitation and Wellness offers physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy to meet all of your rehabilitation needs. Our therapists are licensed by the State of Florida and are certified in many specialty areas. Rehab conditions treated but not limited to include:

  • Muscle and bone injuries (sprains/strains, fracture, back/neck disorders)
  • Post-operative care
  • Arthritic conditions
  • Balance disorders
  • Strokes and other neurological disorders
  • Spinal cord injuries

Cardio Maintenance: This program is designed for those who have specific cardiovascular or pulmonary conditions, including coronary artery disease, open heart surgery, angioplasty, congestive heart failure and asthma. If you have just finished cardiac rehabilitation, this is a great follow-up program. This program allows you to keep active to help prevent a future occurrence. If you have a family history that makes you more susceptible to the conditions listed above (or other cardiovascular or pulmonary condition), this program may also help you prevent a future occurrence.

Polar Body Age Assessments: Resting blood pressure and heart rate, height and weight, flexibility test, body composition, estimated VO2 test, and muscular strength and endurance. Professional printout with results provided along with your own "body age".

- Muscular strength and endurance

- Flexibility

- Cardiovascular endurance

- Body composition
