October 15, 2015: Throughout October, National Physical Therapy Month, the American Physical Therapy Association is providing resources to help people learn how to #AgeWell.
One of the things the #AgeWell campaign makes clear is that you shouldn’t wait until you’re feeling the effects of aging to start thinking about your long-term health.
In this episode of Move Forward Radio, a physical therapist talks about trends he sees in the clinic and provides age-specific advice for healthy aging.

As you look towards your golden years are you anticipating a life of leisure? While that can be a good thing, if balanced with activity, it can be highly counter-productive; producing life-threatening results. While daily activity can provide strategic defense against disease, the contrary will tend to advance it.
It's never too late to start an exercise program. If you are afraid of falling or hurting yourself, talk with your health care provider or insurance company. Many provide resources to address these concerns and may even offer personal training. Another great resource is Go4Life.
According to Dr. Richard Hodes, director of the National Institute on Aging at the National Institute of Health, "Exercise is the best-demonstrated way to maintain health, fitness, and independence."
Our human body is a beautiful, intricate system that functions at its best when WE INVEST in OURSELVES! When we INVEST IN OURSELVES, when we consciously care for each part of the whole: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self. If we neglect even just one seemingly small part of our body's system, our whole body tends not to function at its highest potential.
To enjoy a long, healthy and vibrant life, embrace these ten key areas: Love yourself..keep learning...laugh...exercise..eat well and healthy.
Floss your teeth...etc.
Treat and Heal depression...etc.
De-mess to De-stress...etc,
Connect with your spiritual self...etc.
