Geriatric Physical Therapy

Geriatric rehabilitation involves helping the elderly population with improving their strength, cardiovascular endurance, functional mobility and balance to help them maintain their independence through movement.

 

Exercises: From simple walking and cycling to resistance training, the benefits are plentiful. It helps with increased deposition of glycosaminoglycans to make the joint cartilage strong, improved posture for better respiration and oxygen transport, improved heart health, decrease in cerebrovascular diseases and improvements with cognitive functioning and confidence levels.

 

Balance re-training: The fear of falling, to non-injurious falls to injurious falls all can be pretty stressful. Also, death resulting from falling has been pretty high as has been the cost of medical intervention. How about the burden of care?

May be it is time for preventive intervention. Why not try physical therapy?

 

Post-op care: There has been an exponential increase, about 150-200% rise in joint replacements. If you had a knee or hip replacement and would like to get moving better and efficiently, we are here to help. Better yet, consider physical therapy care first. You may be surprised.
