Physical Therapy with Geriatric Patient

"If exercise could be packed into a pill, It would be the single most Prescribed and beneficial Medication in the nation." - Robert Butler

"People, who can't find the time for exercise, will most certainly find the time for illness." - Anonymous

Aging: It's better to wear out, than rust out!
Ponce de Leone, the Spanish explorer credited with the discovery of Florida, was searching for the Fountain of Youth. Today, research is showing that the fountain of youth isn't a place but a process. The most important thing about the pursuit of the fountain of Youth isn't the Fountain…It's the pursuit!

What do I mean? The key to youthfulness isn't a pill or a product. The key to a productive, enjoyable lifestyle is to go after it vigorously. Pursue your dreams Chase your rainbow Fight the good fight, finish the course.
