On March 11, 2011, Tom Zirilli, PT of Active Physical Therapy Solutions, attended the educational seminar “Functional Strength Training for the Aging Spine”, which was presented by Cross Country Education. At this seminar, the instructor discussed the effects of degenerative spinal conditions, such as arthritis and osteoporosis that are associated with aging, and also strength training goals for patients with spinal and postural degeneration. The instructor also demonstrated proper techniques for upper, lower and core exercises that enhance posture and spinal health. Overall, this was a great opportunity for Tom to obtain more knowledge in this area and also to bring some great information back to the office. Great work Tom!
