Bridging the Gap Between Fitness & Geriatrics

The APTA said in their report, Choosing Wisely, "Don't prescribe under-dosed strength training programs for older adults." So how should we go about getting our older patients stronger?

Much can be learned from current fitness methods that are helping people become strong and robust human beings. Barbells, kettlebells, and prowlers are the tools being used to change the lives of young people. These same tools can change the lives of our older patients as well.

In this course, learn how to bridge the gap between fitness and geriatrics so you can promote adaptation in your older patients in a safe, yet effective manner.
