Physical therapist addresses HSV Rotary

HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE -- A leading New Year's resolution for many people is to be healthy, physical therapist Todd Hobson of Harris & Renshaw told the Jan. 3 meeting of Hot Springs Village Rotary Club.

For some, that may require physical therapy, he said, which can be helpful for the restoration of movement and physical function so that the individuals can get back to what they like to do, whether it's golf, tennis or pickleball, or simply standing or sitting comfortably.

Often, Hobson told the Rotarians, physical therapy not only can restore the individual to the physical condition they were before a fall or injury but in some cases can prevent the further progression of certain diseases, such as Parkinson's.

Hobson said that physical therapy might be helpful if a person experiences an increase in pain or a decrease in function. It can also be helpful for a person to regularly go to a gym, such as the one at Coronado Center in the Village, for a personalized program.

Hobson said that if there is one secret to improving quality of health, it is "walking, walking, walking," which he said can help a person in many ways. "Hopefully you feel better and can do your happy dance," he said in a news release from the club.

Guests always welcome at the Hot Springs Village Club, which meets in the Fireside Dining Room at Good Sam's, 121 Cortez Road, Thursdays at 7 a.m. Visitors are welcome to attend the club's informative, entertaining programs as well as learning about the fun and fellowship of Rotary.
