Experience the Difference
To transform lives by linking physical therapy with fitness and wellness, so that all individuals can improve health and mobility and optimize the human experience.
A world in which every person is empowered to achieve maximal health and wellness.
GroupHab® is an innovative, cost-effective, and pioneering delivery of medical fitness wellness care designed by a physical therapist incorporating PT treatment concepts, principles, and theory into group wellness classes specifically for individuals managing chronic conditions. It is an Alternative Model of Individual Therapy Wellness Care.
The idea for this novel delivery of individual therapy designed wellness care originated from frustration with the current PT medical model-- expensive short term individual therapy does not KEEP patients managing chronic conditions well. Physical therapy is effective, but expensive and short term, yet patients need to continue to exercise or they will lose the gains they made in physical therapy. It was very discouraging discharging patients from PT treatment knowing they would be back in a few months because they were not exercising effectively at home or in their community.
Believing something more should be done, Dr. Patrice Hazan opened GroupHab®, where, she created a wide variety of rehabilitative group wellness classes for seniors managing chronic conditions. Combining physical therapy treatment concepts, principles, and theory with music, a system of rehabilitative wellness care was crafted that is safely allowing seniors to move and feel better.
Physicians and physical therapists can refer patients to our medically targeted, evidence-based, PT designed programs.
Patients can attend our programming knowing that the classes are safe, rehabilitative, medically based and designed to keep patients healthy and well in addition to preventing and managing chronic conditions.
To have the greatest impact, truly making a profound difference in the health and wellness of our communities, GroupHab® programs have been researched and standardized so they can be delivered by GroupHab® certified medical fitness instructors in other communities.
GroupHab® has innovatively created post-rehab and wellness solutions for patients to continue to improve in their communities.
