With the cost of healthcare on the rise, I help proactive adults of all ages to understand how to safely self-treat and manage common musculoskeletal, neurological, and mobility related conditions in a timely manner so they can reach their optimal health.
I am old enough to remember the days without the Internet, and I attended higher education during the transition to the Internet. I can attest that it is much easier to perform research with the Internet than without! However, online research can be confusing and it may be difficult to find reputable information. Most of the time, my research is geared toward scientific journals and peer reviewed articles, but the average non-medical person doesn’t typically have the time or training to fully synthesize the information.
This is most evident within the popular news media today. In an attempt to rush to publish new medical research, the data is often misinterpreted from the true meaning, if any, from the scientific research. This leads to misinformation and confusion. My desire is to filter the research and present it to you in a logical, useful and practical way so you may implement it into YOUR life!
The Physical Therapy Advisor web site is a respected resource for individuals who are searching for advice regarding:
- Physical Therapy
- Physical Fitness & Performance
- Health & Nutrition
- Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation
- Successful Aging & Elder Care
I provide useful and practical types of “how to” information, including methods to safely self-treat and manage common musculoskeletal, neurological, and mobility related conditions.
The information, from a physical therapist’s perspective, is geared toward the adult and geriatric population. In addition to the physical therapy related topics mentioned above, successful aging, elder care, and life topics are also featured. As the population ages in the United States, I desire to see the most physically fit and active seniors in history. I hope over the next ten to twenty years that the paradigm of successful aging is re-written and that old stereotypes of the elderly, the aged, and seniors will be lost in the dust of a new healthier, long lived population.
Health care costs in the United States continue to increase without actual positive change in health status. It is imperative that we all take a leadership role in our own health care by continuing to be proactive.
Most importantly, I want to hear from YOU! What are your pains? What questions do you have? I look forward to providing YOU with useful and practical types of “how to” information and to answer your health related questions. You CAN achieve optimal health! Let’s get started!
