[laughter] >> guest: that would be a challenge. >> kelly: why do we lose balance? >> guest: as we age, the nerve endings in our joint that tells our brain where the joint is in space, starts to slow down. so we have to work harder at keeping everything going the way it needs to go. and this standing on one foot exercise is a great way to do both strengthening the ankle and improving the firing of the nerves. >> kelly: this could be improved? >> guest: yes. >> jeremy: does it burn calo calori calories? >> guest: i'm afraid not! [laughter] >> jeremy: tell us, what is bring it home therapy. you go to people's houses >> it's bring it home physical therapy and fitness training. i'm board certified in physical therapy and exercise for the older adults. i go into my client's homes and i will assess their strength, their balance. i'll look at how they move. and what their posture looks like. and i'll test for muscle imbalances. >> jeremy: how long should i be doing this? my foot is really hurting now? >> guest: you really need to do it up to 30 seconds. >> jeremy: i'm done yet. >> kelly: you don't have anything to prove, you won. >> jeremy: i thought if the did it the whole interview, it would be better. >> guest: you can do up to a minute. >> kelly: [inaudible] >> guest: no, not necessarily. probably the people in their 20s and 30s, might be able to do a minute. 20s for sure. >> jeremy: what about in your teens? >> guest: i would say a minute in your teens. as we get older, our abilities to do that decrease. if i have a client that can do it for ten seconds. >> kelly: that's a good thing. >> guest: yes. >> kelly: how long have you been doing this? >> guest: well, i've been doing the bring it home business for about two years now. >> kelly: okay. >> guest: i've been a physical therapist since 1990. >> jeremy: i like the idea about going to people's home. there's two things i want to get out there. first of all, you go to their homes. and you don't have to be what you call sick to need your services. >> guest: no. this is for anyone. anyone. because again, what will happen is for somebody that's sedentary, that sits more than they should, they're not physically active, they're going to develop weakness in their muscles. so that's where the muscle imbalance comes in. that you have muscles on the front of your hips that are stronger than the muscles in the back. if you're not doing the right exercise for your weaknesses, then you tend to run the risk of strengthening what is already strong, and then, the weaker muscles just get weaker. >> kelly: that's so interesting. >> guest: that's why i said one exercise does not fit everyone. >> kelly: your website covers a lot of things. there's lots of things that can happen. osteoporos osteoporosis. would they do different exercises than what somebody does with alzheimer's? >> guest: well, it's important to identify each person's specific weak areas. that's how you know the exercises and how to develop their fitness strength. >> kelly: can you do one quick assessment? >> guest: it takes a long time to do a thorough assessment. my first visit is an hour and a half. now, all of that is not spent doing assessment. >> jeremy: what does it benefit from going to their house? >> guest: i go into their home. and i can work with them on the problems that they're having right there. for their having their difficulties. and i can assess their home for safety concerns. >> jeremy: if we were to do another exercise, a squat, what does that help? >> guest: well, it helps you get up and down from your chair. it helps you get up and down from the toilet. it's a very good exercise to do. >> jeremy: are you supposed to pulse or hold it? >> guest: no. go down and hold. jeremy, shift your weight back a little bit. >> jeremy: i'm going to fall! >> guest: stand back up. and act like there's a chair behind you you're getting ready today sit in. >> kelly: oh! that throws your body down. >> jeremy: do that again. >> guest: jeremy, you need to keep your knees out from in front of your toes. >> jeremy: oh, like you're sticking your booty out. >> guest: yes. >> jeremy: i was trying to keep my back up right. >> guest: right. but when you're getting ready to sit, that's what you do. and you're already in that seated position. and then, you push yourself back up to standing. >> jeremy: can i do this on one foot? >> kelly: i doubt it. [laughter] >> kelly: i'm sure this is so helpful for people. tell people how to get more information. you have a facebook page >> i have a facebook page and all together. 818-4693. >> jeremy: call her! this has been so fun. >> kelly: jeremy and i might need to make an appointment. >> guest: thank you. >> kelly:
