PHYSICAL THERAPY

Optimal Health allows people to live an Optimal Life at any age. An Optimal Life meaning that you can live the life that you desire, which varies from person to person.​

However, what I learned throughout my 30+ years working as a Physical Therapist is that people’s greatest fear is not only that they are unable to do the things they want to do (like playing golf, travel, volunteer, play with their grandkids, etc.) but even more that they end up losing their independence.

Thus, Optimal Health Solutions focus is to optimize each client’s functional independence whether this is at the level that they can do the activities they love, like playing sports, travel, enjoying activities with friends /family / grandkids, etc. or the ability to continue living independently in their own home.

So, Optimal Health Solutions focus is basically 2 groups of clients.

First group are those clients that have been hospitalized which may include non-elective surgery. Some of these clients had a wake-up call and are motivated to prevent that this may happen again in the future by improving their lifestyle and reach a level of health that they have not experienced before.

Also part of this first group are the clients that have undergone elective surgery like a knee- or hip- replacement or back surgery, but they have as a goal to optimize their health and recovery beyond what the mainstream therapy services often provide.

At Optimal Health solutions we focus on the totality of the client, addressing all aspects of their life and thus allowing optimal healing and recovery of not only the post-op area (knee/hip/back, etc.) but the body as a whole.

The second group Optimal Health Solutions specializes in are those clients that are on the verge of losing their independence.

This often starts with that they are not allowed to drive anymore and thus they lose a big part of their freedom. They then become more dependent on others which can be very traumatic. On top of that many do not have the caregivers (family/friends/paid) as to assist them with their daily activities and needs.

This then often leads to being less active resulting in a gradual decline in functional strength and mobility which then eventually leads to an increased risk for falls and injury.

If one is “lucky” and no severe injury occurs, like a fractured hip, but the reason of why the fall occurred in the first place is never addressed, then the chance is high that the person becomes an even higher fall risk.

Some “solutions” that the person often implements leads to becoming even more sedentary. The result is that at a certain point, they are not safe in their own home and may even need 24/7 care .

 

Many cannot afford this 24/7 private care, and thus the only choice left is an assisted living facility or even a nursing home.

Of course, prevention is the answer and the sooner the better.

For both groups, Optimal Health Solutions provides Integrative Physical Therapy. This means that we look at ALL 7 aspects and identify what needs to be addressed in each of these 7 aspects as to optimize a person health, functional mobility, functional strength, and thus allowing them optimal independence so they can live an Optimal Life.
