Geriatric Massage & Manual Therapy
Promote Functional Outcomes through Touch

By: Theresa A. Schmidt, DPT,MS,OCS,LMT,CEAS

Course Description
As the elderly population grows, there is an increasing need for skilled hands-on care to address the challenges of aging. Therapeutic massage has proven to be beneficial in reducing some of the symptoms of medical conditions associated with aging, improving quality of life in the golden years.
This program discusses age-related changes in health and physiology. Intervention approaches for specific problems such as circulatory deficits, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, arthritis, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, balance issues, and chronic pain are discussed. A review of the evidence indicates the efficacy of therapeutic massage for common health conditions in seniors. Research reveals how therapeutic massage may be readily implemented as part of a treatment program to achieve better functional outcomes in elders. Therapeutic massage is an essential component of a treatment plan for seniors, with proven efficacy in the literature for improving function
