🚨✨Senior Spotlight- Meet Sally! 👋🏼
When Sally first came to Healthy Seniors for Physical Therapy, she was recovering from injuries that led her to being on bed rest for 3 years. 😱 She required use of a cane to walk, help with her ADLs (activities of daily living), and was unable to drive. Despite her obstacles, she regularly attended her PT sessions, kept up with her home exercise program (HEP), and worked so hard to improve. Her dedication definitely has paid off! 👏🏼 Sally is now walking over a mile without a cane 🚶🏻‍♀️, has returned to driving herself 🚙, and has achieved independence with all her household tasks! 🙌🏼 She even purchased some exercise equipment at home to continue her new active lifestyle. 💪🏼 Way to go Sally on working so hard to achieve your goals and return to your prior level! We are so proud of you, and it has been a pleasure to witness your accomplishments! 👍🏼😁 I think her smile says it all- what do you think?

If you’re having difficulty with mobility or balance, or are having trouble recovering from an illness, condition, or surgery, don’t let another day go by! Talk to your primary care provider about a referral to Physical Therapy to help get your life back! Give us a call at (910)444-0020. ☎️

Ross and Christina had a great time with the Del Webb community last week discussing Physical Therapy’s role in Healthy Aging! They appreciated everyone’s time and attention as they spread awareness of how PT’s can help treat conditions related to those in this population, to help them continue to do the things they love. They also discussed Physical Activity recommendations and the benefits it has in overall health. Thank you for the warm welcome!

Christina and Karen had a great time yesterday with the Cape Fear Fall Prevention Coalition spreading awareness for FALL PREVENTION AWARENESS DAY! 🤩

Did you know that more than 1 out of 4 older adults fall each year? And falling once doubles your chance of falling again? 1 out of 5 falls causes a serious injury such as a broken bone or a head injury. 😱
Some preventable risk factors for falls include:
🔴 Vitamin D deficiency
🔴 Certain medications
🔴 Vision problems
🔴 Foot pain or poor footwear
🔴 Home hazards such as uneven steps or throw rugs or clutter
🔵 Lower body weakness
🔵 Difficulty with balance or walking

Physical Therapy can help with 🔵 lower body weakness, balance, and mobility! By assessing your fall risk through use of standardized tests, PTs can see if you are at an increased risk for falls, and if so they can create an individualized treatment plan to help decrease your risk! Don’t be a victim of the “Fall Cycle” or suffer an injury from a preventable fall- Call us today at (910)444-0020 to schedule your FREE fall risk screen!

📣Meet the two newest members of the Healthy Seniors PT team, our Patient Care Coordinators- Niki (left) and Wanda (right)! 🎉

We are so excited to have them and their background, knowledge, and experience, but most of all their smiling faces, positive attitudes, helpful natures, and kind, compassionate spirits.

When you see these two ladies behind the front desk- please give them a warm welcome! 👋🏼🤗

Please help us wish these 2 future Doctors of Physical Therapy well wishes as they prepapre to embark on their journey next month at Western Carolina University! 📚🏫📋 (which sadly means they will be leaving our team 😭)

Julianna (right) has been our Patient Care Coordinator for the past 2 years and as one our patients once put it best, she has been “the captain who makes sure the ship is always ready for its passengers”. We hope she won’t mind when we call her over the next couple months to ask her where something is, or how to do something, but hopefully it will just remind her how much we miss her!

Isabelle (left) has worked part time at our front desk for over a year now, and our Wednesday afternoons just won’t be the same without her around!

Isabelle’s last day was last month, and Julianna’s last day is this Friday. If you are in the clinic this week, please fill out one of our “advice and well wishes” cards for her to help us send her on her way!

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to them both for all of their hard work, dedication, and compassion they have provided as part of our team. We will miss you both, we are proud of you for getting into PT school, and we wish you nothing but the best! 👏🏼🎉🫶🏼

Wishing everyone a safe holiday! 🎆🇺🇸We are OPEN today as we were closed yesterday in observance of Independence Day.

Ross and Christina were able to make it out to a Wilmington Senior Softball Association game today, and boy they were impressed! 🥎 Not only did they get to meet the company sponsored team and talk some shop with other participants about Physical Therapy, but they got to witness some true athletes- running faster than they could run out there and hitting home runs! It was great to see the fun and camaraderie out there, all while getting in some physical activity. 💪🏼🏃
We are so happy to be a part of this organization- keep it up team! 👍🏼

Find something you enjoy doing to help keep you healthy and moving! If you have pain, balance, weakness, or mobility issues holding you back, please call us today at (910)444-0020 to see if we can help!

Please help welcome our new Physical Therapist- Dr. Evan Hairr, PT, DPT! 👋🏼🎉

Evan first started at Healthy Seniors Physical Therapy and Wellness back in February in a temporary position to cover a maternity leave of one of our PTs.

Welcome Evan, we are so happy to have you! 😁

🗣📣 SENIOR SPOTLIGHT! 🌟✨
We are so proud of Carmen! 👏🏼 We first met Carmen in September after an extensive back surgery, where she was using a walker and her back pain was limiting all that she did. Carmen has been a dedicated, all-star patient with her home exercise program, and she has worked her way up to walking over 1.5 miles on her treadmill! 🚶🏻‍♀️💪🏼 Today, she is walking without an assistive device, moving better with more strength and balance, and her pain is much improved. Keep up the great work Carmen, we can’t wait to see how much more you can do! 🙌🏼😁👍🏼

If you are having back pain, or maybe even have an upcoming back surgery, we would love to help you get moving again! Call us at (910)444-0020 for more information! ☎️
