A variety of medical conditions, including chronic pain, consistently plague the everyday lives of Americans. Dr. Robert Jason Yong, the author of a new National Health Interview Survey study says that chronic pain “is the No. 1 reason why patients see a doctor” — and that this study “has come closer than any other to understanding just how common and devastating chronic pain is in America.”
LIT’s mission is to change the way people approach fitness, and to ultimately counter this pervasive problem with a sustainable, low impact way of life. We spent years prototyping a machine designed to address the full life cycle of pain and to be the ultimate companion for those suffering from chronic injury — which, as it turns out, is at least 1 in 5 of us.
Dr. Yong says, “Given the overall scale and impact of pain on Americans, we see that a multimodal, multidisciplinary approach to treating pain is even more important than what we have been emphasizing over the past few decades.”
We couldn’t agree more and accordingly, we have introduced he LIT Strength Machine as not just a helpful tool for recovery and rehabilitation, but an all-in-one setup for a variety of Low Impact Training exercise programs that offer pain prevention management during every stage of a person’s life and provide a long term strategy for strengthening your body.

IRS MEDICAL TAX DEDUCTION
Your physician may recommend exercise for intermittent or ongoing treatment of a variety of medical conditions.
