People sometimes associate physical therapy (PT) with pain and discomfort after surgery or an injury, but PT can be fun and a key ingredient to successful aging. Hear about a variety of common problems that physical therapists work with every day. Meet three area board-certified specialists in geriatric physical therapy to learn about this profession and how it can benefit you, whether you are interested in working to stay active, healthy and independent or are already experiencing physical challenges. Participants will learn about PT in Nebraska, current joint replacement rehabilitation recommendations, how therapy can assist in the treatment of vertigo and dizziness and the importance of maintaining the ability to walk confidently and safely. Each session will include balance tests and active participation. This course will conclude with a comprehensive balance assessment for each participant. Instructors: Mark Sunderman, director of rehabilitation, Eastmont Towers; Barbara Leymaster, staff physical therapist, Seward Memorial Hospital; Marlys Freese, staff physical therapist, CHI St. Elizabeth’s Hospital Facilitator: Kim Osmond
