To many, getting older means a gradual ease into a more sedentary way of life, simply because you cannot do what you were once able to. But that couldn’t be further from the truth, because our idea of aging is completely wrong. Dr. Vonda Wright MS, MD, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Author, Speaker and “The Mobility Doc,” is an internationally recognized authority on active aging and sports medicine. She is an advocate for older adults to be more involved in acts of movement.
Dr. Vonda has had exceptional experience working with athletes and even the senior Olympics. Many athletes report experiencing a chronic illness to smaller and larger degrees. Exercise can replace many of the treatments required by those who suffer from diabetes, hypertension, dementia, depression, and arthritis.
Vonda has developed “Facing Your Future” method with F.A.C.E acronym; flexibility, aerobic, carrying, and equilibrium. Vonda also voices concern over the current state of the health system in the US, as she has experienced its fundamental flaws and gaps, as well, she presents sound solutions for each. Looking to the future Vonda believes health and technology innovations have much to offer the health care model.
