APTA's Move Forward campaign will host a Fit for Life Livestream event with Grandparents.com on May 16, 3:00 pm ET. During this live, online event, a panel of physical therapists will answer questions about the importance of staying fit as people age. Topics will include the importance of physical activity, what to expect in terms of age-related mobility, how physical therapists can tailor exercises for the individual, and how to manage pain.
APTA members Patrice Winter, PT, MPT, Richard Jackson, PT, OCS, and Kathy Oravetz, PT, GCS, will share their stories, give advice, and demonstrate proper techniques for exercise in response to questions submitted via Livestream, @MoveForwardPT on Twitter, or the Move Forward PT Facebook Page.
