Geriatric Physiotherapy

Geriatric Physiotherapy also known as Geriatric rehabilitation it is a branch of physiotherapy that studies rehabilitation and physical therapy issues in elderly.           

Physical therapy for the geriatric population focuses on optimizing function for the aging adult.  As we age, our bodies undergo wear and tear.  Although this process is normal it sometimes leads to pain and disability, causing patients to limit their activity or all together stop doing what they enjoy.  Geriatric physical therapy has been found effective in improving strength, mobility and balance to help the aging individual build confidence in staying active.  There are many reasons to consult your doctor about the benefits of physical therapy.

Treatment will focus on a patient’s specific goals. Research shows that individual treatment programs at any age can help restore mobility, reduce pain, increase strength and improve fitness levels.
