It is easy to become discouraged when faced with reduced flexibility, balance, strength, and endurance. It is common to feel that you are "too old" or that it's "too risky" to pursue a fitness routine especially for those whom fitness has never been a focus in their lives. This is where the physical therapist who specializes in senior exercise programming is important. The worry about the risk of injury is well-founded because as we age our bodies don't bounce back as quickly, and minor injury can lead to bigger problems. A Physical Therapist (PT) promotes optimal physical function, helps individuals maintain, restore, and improve movement, activity, and functioning, thereby enabling your highest possible performance and enhancing health, well-being and quality of life. Physical Therapy focuses on improving client's ability to perform movement of the human body and managing pain. A Physical Therapist will consult with you to learn about your physical condition and symptoms, diagnose movement dysfunction and develop a treatment plan. PT will teach you how to properly use therapeutic exercise techniques, advise you on in-home treatment options and group fitness classes available and online appropriate for you!
An Occupational Therapist (OT) treats the whole person. OT helps people engage in daily life. For example, if you recently can no longer participate in your morning social coffee hour, your group fitness class nor play Rumikub with your neighbors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you could contact our OT to teach you essential ways to accomplish your goals, such as learning how to use platforms, such as zoom, to access your usual social activities. Start OT today to prevent social isolation, cognitive and physical decline. Occupational Therapy focuses on improving a client's ability to perform activities of daily living (ADL) whether you are recovering from injuries or cognitive disabilities, affecting your motor skills, emotions or behavior. OT is unique in that it uses an essential holistic approach to look not only at the reason's a client's participation in activities has been impacted, but also at the client's roles and environment. Your OT will help you to get to the root of why you look forward to social activities each week. What activities are important to you? Is it engaging with the people in your social groups? What obstacles do you need help to overcome together and participate in what is most important to you? Your Occupational Therapist will help you find the resources you need, and trains you and your family in techniques and strategies to ensure your ongoing success.
