For the physical therapist
Find creative balance

Falls are such a common event for older people that it is easy to overlook their often very serious consequences and overall health.
Patty Scheets, PT, and Patrick Hennessy, PT, bring evidence-based interventions to improve dynamic balance in older adults. Dive deep into how to assess, intervene, educate, and decrease falls in your patient population through physical therapy techniques at Symposium 2020.
Discover how to decrease incontinence
Susan Churchill, PT
The pelvic floor consists of a group of muscles that work to provide visceral organ support, provide resistance intra-abdominal pressure, and maintain urinary and fecal continence. To improve incontinence, this muscle group must undergo retraining. Discover the importance of retraining the pelvic floor using physical therapy in order to decrease incontinence frequency and amount by Area Regional Director Susan Churchill, PT.
