What is Geriatric Physiotherapy?
Geriatric Physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy that deals with managing physical problems in elderly people. It mainly focuses on people in the process of ageing. As people age, they tend to lose flexibility, strength and often their balance. Loss of these functions could lead to serious conditions or injuries. Geriatric physiotherapy helps aged people or elderly improve physical balance and strength, build confidence and keep them active.
HOW IT WORKS?
- At APEX Physiotherapy we work with senior citizens and design exercise programs specific to their condition upon thorough assessment to treat and prevent joint problems, balance disorders, falls, reduced strength and obesity.
- This reduces the risk of injuries and helps them get back their independence, making their daily tasks easier with a renewed sense of confidence.
- Even General Fitness programs are designed for those who wish to stay active, be stronger and prevent aging related conditions.
Elderly people suffer from a wide range of medical conditions and these may include:
General weakness and reduced ability to do normal tasks
Stroke and Parkinson’s disease
Dementia and frailty
