Rehabilitative Exercise Therapy

caregiver assisting patient in walkingRehabilitation is most often associated with an injury or surgical procedure. Rehabilitation exercise is also concerned with recovering from chronic health problems and/or mobility challenges due to aging that is greatly overlooked. Restorative exercise is usually taught by a personal trainer one-on-one to an individual with a personal health challenge. As people age, they become more and more sedentary, finding fewer and fewer ways of keeping their bodies, minds and spirits healthy, strong and truly alive. As they stop moving they become feeble and stiffer and lose muscle tone, strength and confidence developing the fear of falling, which makes them more likely to fall. Falls are leading cause of injury-related deaths in seniors and also the cause of morbidity and disability, head injuries and concussions, dislocations, fractures and replacements. As older people develop chronic diseases like Parkinson’s, arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiac and respiratory problem or other health challenges they tend to dismiss the importance of exercise in helping them to cope. The truth is an exercise is what they need most. No matter what challenges a senior may have our fitness professionals can design an enjoyable exercise program that can help restore strength, vitality and the ability to move safely.
