Geriatric Physical Therapy Edmonton

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.
