Did you know that in the case of osteoporosis, exercise is believed to increase bone mineral density and muscle strength, potentially also increasing coordination and balance?
We can work with you to develop an individual exercise program for combating osteoporosis.
#osteoporosis #fallprevention #strengthbuilding
On this Patriot Day, we remember and honor the victims and survivors of this tragic event. We will never forget.
Fall prevention physical therapy conditioning programs offered by physical therapists are designed to increase independence with functional activities, functional mobility, and safety awareness while decreasing fall risk. If you or someone you know are over the age of 65, ask your doctor about a fall risk assessment. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of a cure. https://ptandme.com/fall-prevention-programs-can-keep-seniors-at-home-longer/

As gyms reopen don’t try to go back too fast. Slowly ramp back up to where you were previously. Here are some ways to get back into your workout routine or sport safely:
1. Focus on being purposeful with your movements. Warm-up really well and focus on technique and skill training.
2. Use a journal to assess how well you feel post-workout. How are you sleeping and what are your energy levels like? If you find yourself not recovering well you need to take a few rest days or more of an active recovery day.
3. Address any acute pain early on. Don't wait to see if it will go away.
If you need help getting back to your previous fitness levels please give us a call. We can help you return to your sport safely and reduce the risk of injury.
