A physiotherapy workshop was organized at our Great Times Club for seniors last week. The workshop started with demonstration of chair exercises which can be easily done by seniors sitting on a chair. Our physiotherapy team of Dr. Lamba and Dr. Vivek talked about the importance of walking, swimming and exercises to stay fit and lead a healthy life.
This was followed by demonstration of resistance exercises using a stretch band to improve muscle strength. Exercises for arthritis were also demonstrated with volunteers from the audience. The doctors then answered specific queries and demonstrated exercised related to back, shoulder and cervical spondylitis issues. The doctors also took one-on-one consultation, and guided seniors on their specific ailments and case histories. Overall the session was highly interactive and lots of queries from the audience were answered for the benefit of everyone.
Seniors can consult our in-house physiotherapist Dr Vikas Lamba (at a subsidized cost) by appointment, at Great Times Club. Please call 9818421446, 0124-4229659.
