Physical Therapy for Seniors
For seniors recovering from injury or illness and for those experiencing chronic pain, physical therapy can help relieve pain and restore physical functions such as flexibility, strength, balance and coordination.
Elderly physical therapy combines a combination of approaches including stretching, walking, massage, hydrotherapy, and electrical stimulation among others.
The goal of physical therapy for seniors is to make daily tasks and activities easier. And to make seniors as independent as possible.
Among the circumstances where physical therapy can be valuable are for those who have:
- Injuries such as a broken hip that they are recovering from
- Pain in all parts of the body such as knee, back, shoulder, wrist, etc.
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Cerebral Palsy
- And many other conditions
