Description

For many of your older adult patients aging 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. Strength training for this population has been proven to improve muscle strength and coordination, helping to maintain functional capacity and independence. By including appropriate strength training programs in your therapy plan, you can reverse and prevent the decreases in strength and energy your patients are experiencing.

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 with co-morbidities - successfully reach new levels of strength and vitality. Reduce the symptoms of metabolic diseases and arthritis in your patients using strength training, and keep them in their homes!
