These health risks range widely in terms of effects and seriousness. Some of the most common health issues that seniors suffer from during the summer include:
- heat stroke
- heat exhaustion
- food poisoning
- over exposure to the sun
- diseases caused by parasites and bacteria
These tips can help you avoid getting sick during the summer, but physical therapy can also be useful in preventing some of the health risks mentioned above. Physical therapists can teach you different breathing exercises that will help you breathe better in the higher temperatures. Muscle strength and control can also be improved through physical therapy which will allow you to keep up an active lifestyle with fellow seniors and grandchildren during the summer.
