October is National Physical Therapy Month and the perfect time to focus on physical activity and all the benefits it brings. According to the American Physical Therapy Association, inadequate levels of physical activity result in an added $117 billion in health care costs in the U.S. and leads to a reduced quality of life for millions of Americans. Movement is crucial to independence, and regular physical activity benefits your physical, mental, and social health. For those recovering from injury or learning to live with physical limitations, physical therapists can help identify, diagnose, and treat movement problems. Seeing a physical therapist can help you:
Improve & restore movement & function
Manage pain & other chronic conditions
Recover from injury
Prevent & reduce the risk of future injury
The Therapy Department at Snyder Village offers not only physical therapy, but occupational and speech therapy as well. Out-patient services are offered to the Snyder Village campus and the surrounding community, and in-patient services are available if needed. “Call us if you need help with new pain, weakness, balance deficits, frequent falls, post-surgery rehab, memory loss, difficulty speaking or swallowing, and/or difficulty with performing daily tasks,” says Barb Ramage, Therapy Department Lead at Snyder Village. “It gives us great pleasure to assist the Snyder Village campus and surrounding communities to regain function and age gracefully in place.”
