SHARON, VERMONT OCTOGENARIANS CAROL AND LEON SHELDON SHARE THEIR SECRET TO LONG AND ACTIVE LIVES  In Their Own Words

Carol: “I began coming to Cioffredi & Associates in 1992 with neuro-muscular problems of the lower back. I had met Billy when he volunteered to assist with sports physicals at Hanover High School, where I was the school nurse. After a month of physical therapy, Billy suggested that I begin swimming and doing some deep-water therapy. That was the first of many courses of treatment for spinal cord problems over the years. These treatments included massage, exercise, and innovative dry needling to relieve tightness and pain in order to function in bicycling, aerobics, and activities of daily living. Currently I am receiving PT after 2017 lower back surgery for spinal stenosis. In all instances of my care I found Cioffredi & Associates to be professional and supportive.”

Leon: “I was given care for early symptoms of arthritis and overuse symptoms in 1998. Ruth performed a course of hand PT. On another occasion, kinesiology taping was used for a torn hamstring after a fall. Pain problems have been an ongoing issue in my shoulder. I returned to work after several weeks of PT with a plan of exercises at home. The clinical team at Cioffredi & Associates is certified and trained, always consulting the medical history of their client before beginning treatment.”

Why do they keep coming back?

Carol and Leon tell us that they keep coming back to Cioffredi & Associates because we know their medical and personal history, and have always worked them through their various injuries and setbacks with their goal of increasing their activities of daily living, free of pain and discomfort.

Their Approach to Staying Active?

“If you stay with a program of exercises, you will soon be back to the activities that will help you remain independent and able—as we are—to participate in exercise classes, serve as volunteers in the community, and take vacations. Enjoying life in general is our goal!”

SIMPLE GOLF EXERCISES YOU CAN DO ON THE GREEN TO PREVENT INJURY

Jump to exercises

Sport (n): An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.

Golf commonly has this misconception of not being a sport, but if you’ve ever played, it clearly requires this unique combination of physical exertion and skill. Suffice it to say, golfers are athletes too!

As with any athlete, if the proper preparations aren’t taken, there are injury risks. The average golfer will repeat a swing pattern thousands of times in a season as they attempt to perfect their skills and improve performance. This repetitive activity is a major factor for the most common injuries seen in golfers.

And injury can occur not just during the act of swinging the club, but also everything in-between. For example, did you know that golfers will, on average, walk 5-6 miles (~3mi with a cart) on each course? Add that to the act of bending over and picking up heavy club bags, you have a lot of opportunities to tweak a muscle or two. Continue reading
