What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy, also referred to as physical therapy, is a health care profession concentrated on the prevention and restoration of physical movement in the body.  It is a common form of treatment for various conditions and diseases which occur throughout the lifespan, and can also be used to improve body movement following an operation or accident.  Physiotherapists have a clear understanding of how the body moves, can diagnose why a particular part of the body is not moving properly, and will know how to fix it.

Physiotherapy for Seniors


Physiotherapy for seniors has become increasingly common in recent years, given the speedy growth of our aging population and the latest proven benefits of seniors’ physiotherapy.
  
Physiotherapy treatment for seniors is particularly beneficial since as we age it is quite common for joints to become stiffened, muscles to become inflexible, and overall bodily movement to become more difficult.
Seniors’ physical therapy is highly recommended for specific older-age conditions and diseases such as:
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Orthopaedics
  • Arthritis
  • Neurological issues following a heart attack

Maintaining Mobility and Independence

Physiotherapy can help seniors remain healthy and active for as long as possible.  It is the key to restoring and maintaining a high level of physical function so that you can live and maintain a fully independent life at home.  General benefits of seniors’ physiotherapy include:
  • Decreasing pain
  • Increasing strength and mobility
  • Improving coordination
  • Improving cardiorespiratory function
Common forms of treatment performed by seniors’ physiotherapists include:
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Manual therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Electrical modality (Ex. Ultrasound)
If you feel physically limited due to body stiffness, pain or inflexibility, a seniors’ physiotherapist may be able to help you restore your joints and muscles to a more functional state.  Have a look at the physiotherapists in your area and inquire about their treatments, techniques and recommended plan for you.
