Physical therapists are doctors highly trained in rehabilitating the body and drastically improving their patients’ quality of life. As partners in care, physical therapists teach their patients how to be active participants in their own recovery and rehabilitation.
Physical therapy isn’t just about fixing the body, it’s about helping grandparents pick up their grandkids, athletes return to the field, mothers and fathers get back to work, and kids get back to play.
Dr. Chapman’s physical therapy programs are individualized to each patient’s distinct needs and goals. Through a blend of manual therapy, strengthening, neuromuscular reeducation and endurance training, you can rest assured that you can not only return to your “baseline”, but that you will redefine what your “normal” can truly be.
For seniors, physical therapy is an invaluable resource to improve strength, balance, mobility, and, most of all, quality of life. As we age, it is natural to lose a small portion of our strength – however, it is not normal to lose our ability to carry groceries, pick items up off the floor, climb stairs or walk without losing our balance. These challenges, which are all too common in seniors, are often the consequence of inactivity or injury rather than simply age. Slowed gait speed, difficulty rising from a chair, and losing one’s balance are all directly associated with an increased risk of disability in years to come. However, the good news is that the majority of these issues can be addressed through physical therapy. They, therefore, are not signs of soon-to-be disability but rather early warning signs that should be addressed.
