What is Geriatric Physiotherapy?
Why doing Geriatric Physiotherapy?
Benefits of doing with a Geriatric Physiotherapy:
1. Safe exercise
Exercising is important for anyone, but can be risky for seniors and older adults, especially if you already have a condition. Physio is the best way to workout with directions and carefully, with the help of a professional physiotherapist.
2. Build strength and stability
Avoiding slips and falls are important, especially if you are a senior. And Physiotherapy can help you to prevent them, by building the strength and stability you need.
3. Treat pain
We know that inactivity can cause a lot of tightness, spreading to the neck, back and other joints. And to get rid of pain and get your muscles strong again, Physiotherapy is essential for older adults.
4. Mental health benefits
Did you know exercises can also improve your mental health? By releasing endorphins, you can reduce anxiety and other signs of depression, regardless of your age.
5. Pre and post-surgery
Physiotherapy can help you to avoid surgeries, though sometimes it’s unavoidable. And to make sure you’re prepared to recover faster, you can do treatments before and after them.
All those benefits are vital for a senior’s life but being independent might be the greatest one. Getting out of a wheelchair, having social interactions, moving without limitations, enjoying your family, Geriatric Physiotherapy can help you to make it possible again.
