Surfing over 60?

You can do it! This week on The Kukui Connection, Rep. Marilyn Lee speaks to Ann Frost, president of the Hawaii Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association (HAPTA). The show airs on Sunday, March 21 (repeat April 4) on Oceanic, Olelo Channel 54 at 4 p.m.

Frost works at Queens Medical Center as a director of the physical therapy program at the Women's Health Center. On this episode, she discusses:

*How women and men may have different physical therapy needs based on the types of health issues. For example, women are more prone to osteoporosis, hormone-related conditions, and certain types of cancer.

*How physical therapy is not just for the recuperation from injury. It can help enable you to do activity that will improve the quality of life.

*How physical therapy differs from occupational therapy and massage therapy, although there are overlaps.

*How physical therapy will help you in movement, balance, and exercise - all important elements of good health.
