Physical Therapy can help maintain bone mineral density through effective exercise, as well as prevent fall occurrences (which have been shown to shorten the human lifespan by several years)
Weekend Warriors – A person who participates in a usually physically strenuous activity on an inconsistent basis: on weekends or part-time. This can lead to increased susceptibility to injury because the physical demand is often higher than the physical condition of the person.
Aging Athletes – With age, the human body undergoes several physiological changes, beginning at the age of 45. It becomes more challenging for our bodies to maintain muscle mass and for our joints to withstand forces of impact. Therefore, it is not surprising that the aging athlete is unable to perform at the same activity level that he/she was once able to. For this population, it is vital to undergo training and conditioning to prevent injuries and preserve joint integrity.
Spine/Lumbar Core Stabilization Programs – The “core” consists of several muscles groups, including the abdominals and back that help to stabilize the length of the spine and pelvis. This stabilization is important to provide a strong foundation for the upper and lower extremities to be able to move and produce force. Additionally, core stability is essential for maintaining a healthy back. Core stabilization program will train patients to only activate these stabilization muscles, but also to use these muscles in functional and athletic activities.
