Medical Fitness

Jupiter Medical Center’s Rehab and Wellness Services Medical Fitness Program bridges the gap between health care and fitness. In addition to transitioning you from prescribed therapy our program can help you manage chronic diseases and conditions including:

  • Cancer survivors (post treatment less than five years)
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Cardiac rehab phase three

Research has proven that exercise plays a major role in treating and preventing many chronic diseases. Some benefits include lower stress, lower blood pressure, maintaining a healthy body weight, higher cardiac output, maintaining lean muscle mass, less dependence on medications for diabetes and more.

Attention is paid to each person’s underlying medical health and interventions are implemented to help each achieve a positive physical outcome. Our goal is to support you with a carefully developed, customized personal plan. In addition to medical fitness, we offer aquatic classes for patients with arthritis and/or fibromyalgia.

If you have completed a prescribed therapy program for any of the conditions listed above please complete the medical fitness form.
