"Drown out all the noise. Distill down to the things most important to you. Inhale. Exhale. All is good."
~ DRESHER P.T.
Tip of the Month
"Overwhelmed by the thought of starting a new exercise program? Think you just can’t find the time? Commit to just 30 minutes, 3x/week of something - ANYTHING - related to moving your body. Take a brisk walk; roll out the exercise mat and do some stretching; perhaps try some push-ups and abdominal crunches. Start with small but consistent chunks of time and see how much better you feel physically and mentally."

Are You Well-Balanced?

balanceAccording to the CDC, over 1/3 of adults over the age of 65 fall each year in the United States. Of these adults, 20-30% suffer moderate to severe injuries. Poor balance increases your fall risk, causes longer hospitalizations, permanent injury, and fatality. The positive news is that balance can improve with the right training.

CAUSES OF BALANCE PROBLEMS

  • Leg weakness
  • Musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis
  • Difficulty walking
  • Ear infections
  • Vestibular problems such as BPPV, vestibular hypofunction, and Meniere’s Disease
  • Low blood pressure
  • Certain medical conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis
  • Visual problems
  • Certain medications
  • Conditions that cause confusion such as dementia

HOW PHYSICAL THERAPY CAN HELP
Physical therapists are trained to evaluate multiple systems of the body including the musculoskeletal system, sensation, positional awareness (also known as proprioception), inner ear functioning, and eye tracking. After the physical therapist evaluates your condition, they can prescribe exercises and activities that will improve your particular problem.

DON’T WAIT TO FALL BEFORE SEEKING TREATMENT
If you are noticing a decline in your steadiness, now is the time to be evaluated by a physical therapist. CALL ONE OF OUR OFFICES TODAY to schedule an evaluation with one of our therapists. You will be on your way to a safer, active life.

Dresher PT's PAPER Newsletter

Many of our patients tell us how much they enjoy the valuable information received in our Agility Online electronic newsletter. However, others admit to feeling overwhelmed by the avalanche of email coming into the inbox every day. Personally, I have often missed important messages simply because of the volume of JUNK email I must sift through daily. Based on this and other feedback from our patients, we have decided to reinstitute the paper version of our Agility newsletter, while continuing to offer our electronic version, Agility Online. We believe this will allow us to communicate more effectively with ALL our loyal customers. Thank you for all your feedback!

Best Regards, Matt Seabrook, Director & Owner
