Are You Looking to Improve Your Strength and Balance?

The Synergy Power Hour is a new balance and strength training program for older adults (55 and up) at Synergy Health and Wellness.  Individuals with medical conditions that require modification of the typical exercise programs offered in community gyms will find this program extremely beneficial.  We originally developed this program for our clients that had exhausted their Medicare outpatient therapy benefits (Medicare Part B) and Medicare would longer pay for physical therapy services.  The Synergy Power Hour is an economical way to continue the training that you started in our Medicare and insurance based physical therapy programs.  We also created this balance and strength training program to fill a void that exists in our community.   We believe that our Doctors of Physical Therapy possess the training, knowledge, and expertise  that is not currently possessed by most community gyms and personal trainers  Lastly, this is not a one-size-fits-all program like you may have experienced at a Silver Sneakers program, yoga class, or zumba class.  The Synergy Power Hour is an individualized program that is tailored to your abilities and designed to meet your goals.

Individualized Balance and Strength Training Programs

The Synergy Power Hour is designed by our Doctors of Physical Therapy and utilizes the state of the art equipment available in our facility.    Local gyms and personal trainers often lack the knowledge and training to modify exercise programs for patients with osteoporosis, back conditions, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and numerous other conditions.  Our Doctors of Physical Therapy are experts in creating exercise programs for these individuals.  Our programs include strength training using traditional weight machines or resistance bands, Corestix, TRX, and Pilates machines.  In addition, we provide guarded balance training to ensure your safety when performing many dynamically challenging tasks.  Cardiovascular endurance is challenged with use of the Nustep, treadmill, stationary bike, and upper body ergometer.   Lastly, we improve your ability to walk with the Alter G treadmill.   The Alter G treadmill is a unique device that allows us to reduce the amount of body you experience while walking.  In essence, think of the buoyancy you experience while walking in water.  The Alter G treadmill creates a similar experience but with the added benefit of not getting wet.

Doctors of Physical Therapy Are Experts in Safe Exercise

The Synergy Power Hour is individually designed by our Doctors of Physical Therapy.  If you are new to Synergy, we do require an individual consultation with one of our physical therapists to review your medical history, assess your physical abilities, establish your level of safety, and determine whether our program is appropriate for you.  In some cases, we may request you to obtain medical clearance from your physician to participate in the Synergy Power Hour.   Each balance and strength training session is up to 55 minutes long and can be scheduled at a time that works best for you.  Our talented Physical Therapist Assistants, Alex Gaboury and Amy Godes Gibson, are here to assist you during each session.
