Nursing Homes

Being in a nursing home doesn’t have to mean you give up fitness, health and strength. Isometric exercises can be performed daily even from a wheelchair, while sitting or in bed without any equipment or special devices. A study done at Tufts University found older men and women with moderate to severe osteoarthritis of the knee who participated in a 16-week strength training program had as much pain relief from exercise as from medication while increasing strength and decreasing disability.
