Our mission is to provide a dynamic approach to successful aging. You may not be experiencing any movement problems right now, but what if you are developing tendencies or deficits that, if uncorrected, could lead to future problems? Healthy living is a moving target, so it’s important to periodically check your status. Just as you see your Primary Care Physician yearly for a check-up, we recommend a yearly evaluation of the key aspects of physical fitness to achieve optimal aging. It isn’t news that the solution to many chronic diseases and conditions facing our aging population is exercise. We are told that exercise is essential, but what kind of exercise do YOU specifically need? An exercise program that is incorrectly applied and not individualized can result in injury, lack of motivation, or lack of results. At Fagan Rehab, we offer a yearly physical fitness check-up called The Adult Functional Independence Test. We assess the five key aspects of healthy physical fitness: posture, flexibility, endurance, balance, and strength. We then provide specific suggestions regarding your current exercise program or assist you in beginning a new exercise program tailored to YOUR needs. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for a one-on-one assessment.
Physical Therapy is the key to recovering function after a serious illness or injury. Dr. Carole Lewis said, “If exercise could be packed into a pill, it would be the single most widely prescribed and beneficial medicine in the nation.” However, physical therapy only accounts for approximately 2% of the Medicare dollars spent for geriatric care in this country every year, while medications and surgical intervention account for over 50%. At Fagan Rehab, we believe that number should be flipped. Research has shown that Physical Therapy is as effective, and often more effective, in treating acute and chronic conditions facing our aging population. We want to be the first stop in your journey to recovery. Kathy and Mike have extensive experience treating clients after surgeries, fractures, car accidents, strokes, brain injuries, falls, and other traumatic events. We also have extensive experience working with clients with chronic conditions such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, vertigo, incontinence, chronic pain syndromes, dementia, diabetes, osteoporosis, and many others. So, whether you have a new diagnosis, are living with a chronic diagnosis, or are just de-conditioned after a long period of inactivity, contact us today to schedule an appointment to begin your journey to recovery.
Are you or a loved one experiencing falls in your home? Are you moving into a new home and are uncertain if the environment is safe and functional? Fagan Rehab can provide an evaluation of the home or living space and make recommendations to remove fall hazards and/or change configurations related to fall risks. An on-site assessment is conducted by a team member, and an extensive home safety checklist is completed. The assessment is then reviewed with the client and/or caregiver and highlighted to emphasize specific areas of increased fall risk and settings and/or situations likely to result in injurious falls. Falls are the leading cause of injury, disability, nursing home placement and death in adults over the age of sixty-five years. In the US, one in every three older adults falls each year. Our goal is to assist you in reducing the occurrence of falls in YOUR home space. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our clinicians to evaluate your home.
