SPECIALIZED GERIATRIC CARE
Physical therapy is treatment that focuses on improving a person's function, whether it's related to bones, joints, muscles or nerves. Typically, a person's function has been impaired in some manner as a result of an injury, wear and tear, or as part of the aging process. At Active Rehab, when treating geriatric patients we most often treat functional problems such as pain, balance issues, poor endurance, trouble walking and poor muscle strength. We also provide patients with therapeutic programs to retain strength.
If you’re looking for quality geriatric care, then Active Rehab is the Physical Therapy Clinic for you. Our professional team is here to guide our patients and their families every step of the way. Results will include:
Improve Balance (prevent risk from falls)
Neurological Disorders (Stroke, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.)

CARDIAC CARE WITH LEADING TECHNOLOGY
Following a diagnosis of heart attack or heart failure, or after a procedure such as angioplasty, heart valve surgery, coronary artery bypass grafting, percutaneous coronary intervention or heart surgery, your doctor may recommend you participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program. Cardiac rehab involves adopting heart-healthy lifestyle changes to address risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
Medical evaluation. Your health care team will generally perform an initial evaluation to check your physical abilities, medical limitations and other conditions you may have. Ongoing evaluations can help your health care team keep track of your progress over time. During your evaluation, your health care team may look at your risk factors for heart complications, particularly during exercise. This can help your team tailor a cardiac rehabilitation program to meet your individual needs, and the team can make sure it's safe and effective for you.
Physical activity. Cardiac rehabilitation can improve your cardiovascular fitness through physical activity. Your health care team will likely suggest low impact activities that have a lower risk of injury, such as walking, cycling, rowing, jogging and other activities. Your health care team will likely teach you proper exercise techniques, such as warming up and cooling down. You may also do muscle-strengthening exercises, such as lifting weights or other resistance training exercises, two or three times a week to increase your muscular fitness. Don't worry if you've never exercised before, your health care team can make sure the program moves at a comfortable pace and is safe for you.
