SENIORS are prone to these health risks since aging can limit their movements and prevent them from engaging in physical activities. It is also the same for people with underlying chronic illnesses who need
Sante Fitness Labs (SFL), a premier one-stop fitness center that offers holistic training programs, provides an online physical therapy consultation and an online nutrition consultation for the elderly amid the current health crisis.
Physical therapy (PT) plays a vital role for seniors by helping them recover from potentially debilitating conditions and also as a priceless preventive measurement that encourages independent living for as long as possible.
It also encourages “Healthy Aging” among people, who are approaching their senior years and are starting to experience limitations in functionality due to age or post-injury. PT can also help avoid these five instances where seniors can also become prone to that can potentially endanger their lives:
Aging or post-recovery from injuries/illnesses become prone to imbalances that lead to falling which can injure or re-injure them. PT can influence the body’s strength and endurance level.
Doing PT teaches its patients more efficient ways of completing daily activities, which can help improve both physical and mental health and quality of life. It also helps improve mobility and flexibility which can alleviate stiff joints, which people are prone to during the current quarantine. Decreased mobility leads to more pain.
Without active movement and the prevention that could have been offered by PT, there can be an increased risk for pneumonia, which is one of the main effects of COVID-19, and an increased potential of developing skin problems like ulcers.
Combining PT with proper nutritional advice can also improve preventive measures to specific existing chronic illnesses like heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, allergies, diabetes, and pre-diabetic conditions, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Celiac disease, and Obesity.
SFL is living up to its tagline, “Home of Champions,” as they continue to encourage people to live a healthy active lifestyle. Through their online fitness, PT and Nutritional consultations, they can help people begin or continue their healthy lifestyles even in quarantine
