For many of the older adults you see in your practice, growing older seems to involve an inevitable loss of strength, energy, and vitality. You feel helpless and frustrated as you watch your older patients suffer from a loss of muscle mass and subsequent weakness, knowing these things predispose them to increased risk for injury. You want to see your patients increase their functional capacity, maintain their independence, and decrease their co-morbidities. But what can you do in therapy to help your patients help themselves live a better, more independent life? Get them on a strength training routine! Strength training for this population has been proven to improve muscle strength and coordination, helping to maintain functional capacity and independence. By including the appropriate strength training programs in your therapy plan, you can reverse and prevent decreases in strength and energy your patients are experiencing.
Jamie Miner, PT, DPT, GCS, has implemented strength training for older adults into her practice, and wants to share her strategies and outcomes with you. Through case studies and hands-on activities, you will learn strategies to easily design safe and effective strength programs for every adult, even those with orthopedic and metabolic diseases. Get the information you need to help the most challenging patients - those patients with co-morbidities - successfully reach new levels of strength and vitality. Reduce the symptoms of metabolic diseases and arthritis in your patients through strength training, and keep your patients in their homes!
