Bearing 20% of Body Weight in Water
Why does being in the water help you might ask? When you are in the water, you are only bearing 20% of your body weight on your joints and spine. This allows you to work on core strengthening, balance exercises, arm and leg strengthening, and endurance. When you are bearing 100% of your weight on land, those exercises can be difficult and extremely painful. The desired results will not be reached in extreme pain. Patients can move to the water and get a total body workout. Just call Freedom Rehab Aquatic Therapy, LLC, to schedule an appointment today.
The loss of a driver’s license has an overwhelming impact on the life of senior citizens. seniors that have to give up driving become dependent for transportation to medical appointments. One such appointment is for physical therapy. We feel that the residents of assisted living communities are hardest hit because they can have some physical limitations and can’t drive for rehabilitation. We feel that this population is at risk for hospital and nursing home admittances and that physical therapy can maintain independence, balance and strength keeping them home and reducing their risk for falls. We at Freedom Rehab Aquatic Therapy decided to address this problem and have Purchased a wheelchair accessible bus to bring patients of Assisted Living facilities and some mobile home parks in Venice, Englewood, North Port and Port Charlotte to our pool in North Port. In addition to providing free transportation for a minimum of 3 persons per transport, we are offering a free land-based exercise class specifically designed for seniors and we will be holding it at their facility. Please call us @ 941-400-1505 to get more information and to arrange your ride.
Education and Knowledge Series
We love sharing our knowledge and experience as therapists by presenting our community education series which are lectures on topics such as balance and fall prevention (complete with Balance Screens), reducing back pain, coping with COPD, and more. These sessions are held at area facilities and can be arranged for sessions are your facility.
We feel this community service program will benefit our seniors with physical strength and useful information to keep them happy and healthy. When a person is in chest deep water, they are only 20% weight bearing on their joints and spine which makes exercise pain free and enjoyable. Our seniors that may not have exercised in a while will find it a pleasure and will get a head to toe workout focusing on such things as core strength and balance.
Please call us @ 941-400-1505 to get more information on having us come out for an educational session or to find one locally to attend.
