Siskin Hospital NeuroWellness Specialists promote new program
New exercise program designed specifically for those with neurological disorders.
Travis Byous, BSEP and Kathleen Landelius, PT lead the new NeuroWellness Program at Siskin Hospital. They recently appeared on NewsChannel 9's "This N That" show to talk about the new exercise program, which is especially designed for those with neurological disorders - although anyone can benefit.
This nine-week program teaches individuals the essentials of exercise: introduction to exercise equipment use; stretching; core; balance; walking; and seated group training. The program will also show individuals how to establish an effective routine that works for them. The program is structured to support many different needs when it comes to exercise, from getting an exercise routine in place before surgery to maintaining an effective exercise program after discharge from outpatient physical rehabilitation therapy.
NeuroWellness specialists oversee each patient's program. For more information, call 634-1385.
