Our case study here provides an example of creating your own future, no matter the cards that have been dealt. Our client, diagnosed with post-polio syndrome, as well as Parkinson’s disease had been discharged from physical therapy when our work began on building functional strength.
Although hindered by chronic conditions, this 80-year old gentleman built a great deal of strength while also improving his mobility and overall physical functioning. A number of fellow residents within the senior living community also mentioned the boost of confidence, describing it as, “through the roof”.
Today, he continues to live with chronic conditions but has taken each and every step towards controlling each of them. We will continue to strive for progress, both large and small, to prevent these conditions from taking over.
Sometimes, aging comes with challenges, it’s up to you to push towards a happier, healthier life.
