Exercise and Health

Exercise is life

Many people find it difficult to get enough exercise and do it in a healthy way due to their daily routine at the office and daily chores. But how important is exercise really? Is exercise a basic essential component to compensate one's health?

Regular training of muscles and steady, daily and sufficient exercise are essential if the goal is to stay healthy!


Physical Medicine of Wiener Privatklinik: How important exercise really is for a healthy life 

The musculoskeletal system is made for movement. No movement equals atrophy of the musculoskeletal system!

In addition, circulation as well as metabolism are stimulated, muscles are strengthened by movement and mobility is ensured.

But here comes the crux: How to secure movement? Everyone understands the basic principle, but it is the implementation that causes difficulties.

Because the easiest way to stay fit and the most important is to incorporate exercise into everyday life.

Many people think of it as going to the gym, doing strange workouts in the office and the like, but it's much easier:

In fact, many everyday activities can be easily combined with the perfect movement. These include, for example, simple measures such as: Climbing stairs instead of taking the elevator, walking instead of driving.

Effective, easy to implement even in the current state of exception and incredibly valuable!


Muscle training at the WPK Department of Physical Medicine


Muscle training has a huge importance. Muscle loss begins between the ages of 20 and 30, which means that muscle is constantly diminishing when exercise is absent.

At the same time, it is never too late to exercise muscle training: Muscle and endurance training can be practiced into old age.

Mobility in old age is thus also achieved through that combination of training.

The most important thing is to maintain a level of mobility that allows you to lift or carry one's own weight.

Because in old age, this ability is required in order to maintain independence for as long as possible. Whether it's getting up from the toilet bowl or climbing a flight of stairs, carrying your own weight is the key to mobility.

The weight of one's own body, is not clear to a young person. The training that is necessary depends entirely on how much movement was accomplished as a young person.

A quarter of that amount is needed to stay fit. To actually build muscle mass, three to four sessions of 20 to 25 minutes are necessary, and exercises with a simple Thera-Band are quite sufficient.

The daily trip to the gym can therefore be saved when it comes to exercise and health, which is focused on muscle and endurance training to achieve sustainable mobility.


Professional help at the Wiener Privatklinik 

Consulting trainers or therapists is a must to achieve real success.

This is because incorrect training or incorrect movement patterns in everyday life can lead to muscle shortening as well as poor muscle balance.

Only under the guidance of professional trainers, the perfect mix of training can be achieved and a learning process can take place that can be transferred to everyday life.

The Wiener Privatklinik and our Department of Physical Medicine offers just that professional guidance!
