Exercise is important at all times – especially now. Participating in regular exercise improves cardiovascular health, improves strength in muscles and bones making it easier to get out of chairs and step onto curbs, and also has benefits for cognitive health (improved memory!) and mental health.

Group exercise classes have the added benefit of socialization, accountability, and motivation. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, this might look a little different, but you can get the same benefits by participating in a virtual exercise class over zoom.

Join Heidi Batchelder, DPT from Midtown Physical therapy in an exercise class for seniors hosted over zoom on April 23, 2021, at 2:30 EST. Exercises will focus on strength, balance, endurance, and flexibility to keep you active in your life and improve your daily function.

Why you should participate:

  • Physical Therapist led means that there is a strong emphasis on proper form with exercises and explanation on the benefits of each exercise.
  • Regressions and progressions are suggested for exercises making the class individualized to your needs.
  • No need for fancy equipment – we recommend having a sturdy chair (preferably not a chair on wheels!) and some water for hydration.
  • It’s fun!
  • It’s a safe way to be part of a community.
  • If you’ve been wondering if virtual Physical Therapy (telehealth) is for you, it’s a good chance to see what it’s like.

Winter-wise Your Walk

It’s that time of year again. The days are short, it’s cold outside, and snow and icy streets are on the horizon. Many people fear the winter because surfaces outside can get slippery from cold rain and snow. With these changes come increased chances of slip and falls. Freezing temperatures also introduce the possibility of running into black ice – a slippery surface that you often don’t realize is there until you are on it. It can all make you want to…
