GroupHab® was created out of frustration with the medical model of providing PT treatment, seeing a patient progress, and then discharging them with a home exercise program, only to have the patient come back in a few months because they are not exercising effectively at home or in their community.
It is a medical model that does not work to keep many older adults and individuals managing chronic conditions healthy and well.
Believing something more should be done, Dr. Patrice Hazan opened GroupHab® Physical Therapy and Wellness, where she created a wide variety of specialized wellness and fitness exercise classes for older adults managing chronic conditions and specialized populations.
By combining physical therapy treatment concepts, principles, and theory with music, a system of wellness and fitness care was crafted that is safely allowing individuals to move and feel better.
Individuals can attend our programming knowing that the classes are safe, evidence-based, and medically designed to keep individuals 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 professionals.
To transform lives by linking physical therapy with wellness and fitness so that all individuals can improve health, mobility and optimize the human experience.
A world in which every person is empowered to achieve maximal health and wellness.
