Physiotherapy for Seniors

As we age, our bodies naturally undergo a variety of changes that can affect our physical abilities. While some changes can be positive, such as increased wisdom and life experience, other changes may have a less desirable impact. For instance, many older adults may experience a reduction in muscle and bone density, making it more challenging to carry out daily activities. Age-related conditions like arthritis and a reduction in the bodies natural ability to heal, can restrict mobility and limit independence, leading some seniors to require additional support from caregivers. 

However, it’s important to remember that there are ways to mitigate these changes and maintain a high quality of life as we age. Physiotherapy is one such solution that can help address, and even reverse, some of the physical challenges associated with aging. Through specialized exercise programs, physiotherapy can help seniors maintain their strength, mobility, and independence, enabling them to live full and active lives.

We offer a range of services designed specifically for seniors. Our medical exercise programs are catered to those with multiple co-morbidities, ensuring that each patient receives personalized care tailored to their unique needs. These programs are designed to improve cardiovascular health, balance, and mobility, while also managing chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and osteoporosis.

We also offer strength and mobility exercise programs that help seniors maintain their independence by improving their overall physical function. These programs focus on building muscle mass, improving flexibility and balance, and reducing the risk of falls and other injuries.

Our physiotherapists are experts in offering the following interventions:

  • Exercise programs for older adults to maintain strength and mobility
  • Balance programs for older adults to improve safety and independence
  • Physiotherapy for older adults who have recently suffered a fall
  • Physiotherapy for older adults who have recently had a hospital stay and are returning home
  • Physiotherapy for older adults who have recently had a fracture or surgery

We offer an easy to use appointment management system which can allows individuals to quickly and efficiently set up in-home physiotherapy for themselves or a loved one.

Did you know that an average of one to two in-home physiotherapy sessions per week can help lower the risk of re-hospitalization by up to 82 percent in older adults?
