Your aging patient

Without exercise, aging is accompanied by a slippery slope of decreased vigor and well being. As PTs, there is much we can do to halt this decline and to help ourselves and our patients.

In this blog entry, we’d like to take the pulse of our community with a series of quick questions — for fun and for learning. Check them out and participate! We’ll share the responses (and correct answers!) in a follow up soon.

How much do you know about aging and exercise? Quiz yourself!




How did you do? We will publish the combined responses in the next few days. In the meantime, if you are treating older patients, you owe it to yourself to check out EDUCATA’s Functional Assessment and Exercise for the Aging Adult course by Drs. Avers & VanBeveren. They cover this topic with great expertise in a series of engaging lectures.

During February, we are offering this course at 25% off its regular price. That means that the cost of the 7-hour course is now only $157.41. The lectures include:

This offer will be good until February 28, 2013. To take advantage of the offer, click here and enroll. The discount will be automatically applied.

In the meantime, stay tuned for next week’s post with the results of the above quizzes. And, as always, we’d love to hear your questions and comments, so feel free!
