On July 16, Theradynamics in Bay Plaza held its Senior Fitness Friday event. Bronx senior residents were invited to Theradynamics at Bay Plaza to participate in The Fall Prevention Program. The Fall Prevention Program helps to reduce fall risk and injury.
Seniors who attended were trained by Theradynamics specialists utilizing state-of-the-art technology. The program helps seniors to maintain their sharpness — psychologically and physically — while improving balance, flexibility, posture and more. It’s also an opportunity for them to be around other like-minded seniors.
Those who have special needs from conditions such as Parkinson’s, back pain, knee or hip replacements, and strokes can check with their doctor to see if this is a fit for them. Seniors like Gloria Hazelton, who suffers from Multiple sclerosis, was there to learn to be as healthy and safe as possible. This event was also online for those who could not attend in-person.
