Onsite & Remote Tobacco Cessation Counseling
About 20% of U.S. adults currently smoke according to the CDC. When including smokeless tobacco products, the rate of use is even higher. Smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the U.S. and more than 16 million Americans live with a smoking-related disease as of 2013. Tobacco use is a very real, but treatable problem. Physical addiction is behavioral-based with physiological, mental, and emotional components which all must be addressed. Level of dependency is tested, assessed, and identified. Individual-specific intervention includes behavioral therapy, counseling, accountability measures, and nicotine replacement products. It is widely confirmed that when these treatments are used together, patient outcomes are more permanent than when any are utilized alone. In order to achieve our goal of healthy, life-long change for entire organizations one person at a time, we comprehensively treat all areas that lead to chronic disease, including those areas that may seem hardest to change.
Onsite & Remote Stress Management Counseling
Workplace stress can be defined as 'the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them at work'. Stress is a state of being that has mental and physical consequences when excessive and persistent. It is directly linked to high levels of absenteeism, presenteeism, and staff turnover. Types of stress include physical, mental, and emotional which although unescapable can be properly mitigated so as to reduce or eliminate the negative consequences on body and mind. For productive and profitable work output, employees must be able to manage the inherent stress associated with workplace responsibility and expectation. Demand, control, support, relationships, role, and change are the six aspects of primary stress origination which must be evaluated. The many common warning signs which include fatigue, exhaustion, headache, aches/pain, mental malaise, muscle tension, and continual sleeping difficulties are to be identified and assessed on a case by case basis. A questionnaire, interview, and clinical review are utilized and individual-specific lifestyle change and counseling are administered. Sadly the treatment of stress is often overlooked and progressive, preventable illness is a consequence.
Onsite & Live-Video Nutrition
A knowledge of proper and science-based nutrition is required in order to understand the reliable pathway to weight loss and health eating. 'Diets' and 'programs' are empty catch phrases used to 'sell' to today's society where sadly more than 2 out of every 3 adults are considered overweight or obese and a third of all children and adolescents ages 6 to 19 are as well. Change does not occur overnight; noticeable, effective, and permanent change happens over a sustained and consistent period of time as old habits pass and a new lifestyle is established. Changing ones lifestyle is fundamental and paramount in not only losing weight and eating well, but accomplishing a stable and enduring way of life that keeps the weight off and your body healthy. Our comprehensive screening and assessment includes a history, questionnaires, and dynamic body composition analysis such as circumference measurements, wist-hip ratio targeting, and more. Because people are unique and infinitely variable, only the most concentrated plan of treatment, education, and counseling brings about the core goal of lasting transformations and a new life. Consistent with YHN LLC's operating procedure of absolute patient convenience, services are on-site and live-video.
Onsite & Live-Video Fitness
There are few things more injurious than a 'one-size-fits-all' approach when teaching and training individuals that inherently differ in a multitude of ways including goals, function, orthopedic limitations, medical concerns, pre & post-training nutrition, medications, age, background, and so on. Fitness instruction can and should be intelligent, specific, research-based, and biomechanically sound. What good is fitness development or rehabilitation if it is hurting someone in the same and/or other way? Could that at all be considered health or wellness? What if a client had surgery or an old sports injury limiting range of motion, how does he/she even begin to start to safely exercise? Did you know that without proper core musculature and hip muscle flexibility, one can injure themselves simply by bending over improperly? Did you know that over 230 muscles fire simultaneously while squatting which is a functional and daily activity? There is rightly principled exercise for each individual which can only be accomplished through a comprehensive plan which we derive from a history, interview, cardiorespiratory and muscle testing, range of motion and functional strength assessment, postural analysis, biomechanical evaluation, and more. With foundational information evaluated, goal-specific periodization principles are applied in exercise plan formulation. Services are on-site and live-video.
Small and Mid-Size Business Group Health & Wellness Specialists
Our Spine is the foundation upon which we are built allowing us to move, walk, bend, twist, and turn. When the joints in our spine and body incur repetitive physical stress, especially in our work environments where roughly 110,000 hours of our lives are spent, they get 'stuck' and move improperly progressively promoting arthritis, inflammation, tight muscles, bad posture, and acute/chronic pain. The spine also houses the nervous system which is the organ that controls and coordinates every single function in our body. When our spine and peripheral joints are negatively effected, our nervous system is as well. Chiropractic care requires time and repetition to effectively mitigate and reverse musculoskeletal symptomatology in a permanent way. Our services also advise on environmental workplace ergonomics including desks, phones, computers, chairs so that activities of daily workplace living will facilitate postural health instead of contributing to acute and chronic pain. A targeted and all-encompassing physical exam gives an overall biomechanical, neurological, and musculoskeletal determination from which treatment begins. Imaging is ordered where appropriate and is an important tool providing visual baseline and follow-up comparisons. Individualized chiropractic care and ergonomic redevelopment are critical aspects of workforce pain reversal and improved quality of life.
