National Physical Therapy Month Celebrated at Elmwood Hall
Putnam Ridge’s very own Director of Rehabilitation, Vivian Frerking, PT, was a guest speaker at Elmwood Hall in Danbury, CT, on October 17 to talk to a wonderful group of seniors about physical therapy and fall prevention. She demonstrated ways to strengthen muscles, increase range of motion, decrease pain, improve mobility and balance and living more healthy lifestyles. Vivian engaged the audience with questions and a brief demonstration of basic chair exercises, along with demonstrating adaptive equipment. The month-long celebration focuses on the important role physical therapists play in helping people achieve pain relief, maintain mobility and overall functionality, and ultimately, more productive, physically-able lives.
