Keeping Seniors Healthy, Happy, and Mobile
Strength training, yoga, and Pilates are great ways to build muscles and enhance endurance. How effective are they for older adults? Many experts agree that these are among the best methods for older adults to stay fit during the aging process. Now, some are even using this method as an effective option for rehabilitation and post rehabilitation. From joint replacements to osteoporosis to TBI – these therapeutic techniques can improve core stabilization, neuromuscular re-education, and postural correction, which in turn leads to improved carryover after discharge.
Enable your patients to address and overcome a wide range of challenges they face with strength training techniques, yoga, and Pilates exercises tailor-made for the aging population. Let Deanna Lesmeister, PT, DPT, CWT, STS, CPI, CYI, a seasoned Physical Therapist and Pilates and yoga instructor for 25 years, will guide you through the hands-on labs geared toward those with weakened core strength, reduced musculature, and other unique limitations and/or injuries. Active demonstrations and case studies will provide you with a unique toolbox that can improve quality of life and increase independence for older clients.
