Optimized Aging

Have you ever found yourself saying:
“Once you hit 40…”
“Oh, it’s just an old injury…”
“I’m just getting older…”

It is a daily conversation with patients/clients at Limitless Physical Therapy that age doesn’t need to be a limit on your life. The main reason that we see people doing less as they age is that they are unaware of the effect of getting weaker on daily activities. As we age, it is true that recovery time slows and this is in part due to the fact that the rate that we make new cells slows down. It is also true that with careful planning of strength training, you can build strength so that you can keep doing the things you love. The best way to rehab an injury as we age is not have it in the first place, which is why the exercise programs that our physical therapist help design for our patients always consider their age, goals and how to best prevent common injuries based on your activities and medical history.

Fall risk is a consideration for everyone and more so every year. There are simple steps you can take to reduce your fall risk by adding simple strength and balance based exercises. Physical Therapy brings an evidence-based approach to assessing what specific activities will benefit you the most. We can also help plan successful management of the increased fall risks associated with diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis (OA) and diabetes (type I and type II). Most people can have these assessments covered by their insurance.

We have a STRENGTH class available for seniors that is directed by our team of physical therapist. We also realize that there are many programs designed for seniors from water aerobics, yoga, silver sneakers, and good old fashioned weight training. We have experience at helping people adapt nearly any sport to the specific needs that you have and with careful consideration. We also are able to take the sports you love and turn them into rehab. If you want to live your life without limits, request an appointment today.
