New wellness program at Wayne Medical Center aims to improve health and quality of life


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — The Wayne Medical Center (WMC) Therapy Center has announced a new therapy-based wellness program that is designed to meet the individual needs of those whose physical condition impacts their overall health.

The new Wellness One-On-One program focuses on increasing an individual’s strength and mobility, while promoting physical activity, improving functional ability and quality of life. Dietitians will provide consultation on suggested dietary modifications and program coordinators will motivate participants to continue progress in their wellness journey. While results will vary by patient, long-term benefits of the program could include:

  • Increased mobility
  • Weight loss
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Decreased insulin dependence
  • Improvements to breathing and sleeping patterns
  • Reduced joint inflammation
  • Improved posture and balance

“A variety of health-related factors can contribute to an individual losing strength and being unable to perform the physical activities that they once enjoyed. Whether this is a result of obesity or another chronic condition such as diabetes, fibromyalgia or arthritis, our new program is designed to help individuals regain strength and function, while improving their overall health,” said WMC Physical Therapy Director Chris Mayott.

A physician referral is required for participation in the Wellness One-on-One program. Following an evaluation conducted by a WMC Therapy Center staff member, the therapist will work with the patient’s primary care physician to develop a customized program with the individual’s unique needs in mind. WMC will also coordinate with insurance providers for those who qualify.

The WMC Therapy Center is located at 308 Highway 64 East in Waynesboro. For more information about Wellness One-on-One or other therapy services, call 931.722.2063.
