Geriatric physiotherapy is a specialized form of physiotherapy that primarily caters to the needs of older adults. It addresses a range of age-related conditions that individuals may face as they age. The therapy can be used to treat various issues such as osteoporosis, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, joint replacement, balance and gait disorders, neurological disorders, and incontinence.
The therapy involves a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s physical capabilities and functional limitations. Based on the evaluation, a personalized treatment plan is developed that includes exercises and techniques to improve strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance.
Geriatric physiotherapy also involves education on the importance of exercise, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle habits for seniors. Next Step Physio understands the importance of staying fit at all ages. Hence, we provide a comprehensive treatment plan with geriatric physiotherapy for the older people in your house.
Geriatric physiotherapy is a non-invasive and cost-effective alternative to surgery or medication for many age-related conditions. It can help seniors maintain their independence and quality of life, while also reducing the risk of hospitalization and long-term care.
Geriatric physiotherapy can be approached in various ways, depending on the patient’s specific needs and conditions.
In association with the treatment plans already mentioned, we tend to opt for a few more highly effective approaches based on the needs and health conditions of a patient.
