Senior citizens can benefit from physical therapy intervention to improve their quality of life. Whether it be the reduction of risk of injuries from falling, or management of osteoporosis, an appropriately defined intervention program may be of help.
The medical benefits of yoga are well documented, and selected techniques of yoga have good potential in rehabilitation programs. “Yoga therapy” utilizes yoga postures and adapts them to specific musculoskeletal injuries. As some injuries can be aggravated by improper understanding of yoga and physical therapy, it is important that a therapist trained in both yoga and physical therapy manages the individual poses in a personalized yoga rehabilitation program.
At our new facility in Oak Ridge, we have an extensive array of fitness equipment, which we use to help our clients maintain their benefits from physical therapy or simply to stay well by exercising regularly. (More)
