The benefits of non-traditional physical therapy plans for seniors

from Duluth Patch

As seniors age, remaining active becomes increasingly important. Senior living communities and caregivers should consider looking beyond traditional physical therapy options to keep seniors engaged and active.

Integrating modified, low-impact activities, like gardening or yoga, into seniors' exercise plans increases the likelihood that they will commit to a new, healthy lifestyle and keep it up. more
