In 2018, Northern Iowa Therapy rebranded as NIT but has still kept the same vision of providing exceptional therapy services to rural communities. We pride ourselves on the care we give and the services that we offer, so if you are looking for a company that provides exceptional services to seniors, you’re in the right place!

One of the most common injuries among older individuals results from falling. In fact, one in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year as a result of a chronic health condition. There are numerous things that can affect their balance including chronic health conditions, vision impairment or muscle weakness, and certain illnesses. That’s why NIT is so proud to offer fall prevention programs designed to help seniors feel confident in doing things independently by improving their balance and increasing their strength.
Strength and Mobility Programs
While seniors require additional assistance in completing daily tasks, such as bathing, getting dressed, cooking, and housekeeping, they still may want to maintain their independence. As we age, we tend to lose muscle mass and the rate at which we lose it increases significantly when we enter our 60s. In addition to that, weak joints are more vulnerable to injury, so by moving their bodies regularly, they are improving both their balance and body movement. NIT provides hands-on therapy techniques with pain management and strengthening and stretching programs, as well as soft tissue mobilization and electric muscle stimulation. We also offer a variety of range of motion programs so that your residents can feel comfortable even as they age.
Many seniors are unable to drive as a result of vision problems, certain medications, or physical restrictions. NIT recognizes this and in order to fulfill this need, we provide in-home care services for those who need it. If traveling to one of our partnering clinics is a challenge for you, allow us to come to your assisted living home! NIT has trained and qualified professionals that are knowledgeable and highly capable of making sure that your residents’ needs are met.
