100 and Counting: PT Helps Centenarians

Bernadette “Dette” Martin, of Delray Beach, Fla., was 100 years old when she asked her physician to prescribe a walker. A recent fall and her plans to go on cruises in the following months fueled the centenarian’s concerns about being able to get around. But the physician refused. “When I was leaving [the appointment], I said, ‘Doctor, are you going to give me a prescription to get that walker?’” Martin says. “He said, ‘I have no intention of it. You go to therapy, and you won’t need a walker.’” Martin took part in PT for 2 1/2 months and says she is stronger and ready for the first of her cruises to the Caribbean in January.
