Physiotherapy at Home for Elderly People

As the years go by, our bodies slow down and we find ourselves lagging physically, unable to move as nimbly as we used to in our prime years. Whether it be climbing upstairs, walking longer distances, or even getting out of bed, the effects of aging are certainly there. We believe that with the right care for the elderly people and physiotherapy at home, the effects of aging can be slowed down.

The Problem

As our bodies gain age, we lose muscle mass, bone density, and balancing capability. As our joints begin to stiffen, and we can no longer move like we used to and this can have unsafe implications. Injury from falling is an incredibly dangerous yet common complication for the elderly. This can often lead to permanent damage and increased risk of subsequent falls.

Many elderly people at home have several conditions that heighten the need for Physiotherapy, such as:

  • Fractures
  • Previous falls
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cardiovascular conditions
  • Neurological conditions

There is an increased need for Physiotherapy in these situations. This is why physiotherapy is becoming the norm for maintaining the health of the elderly. It is essential to slow down the effects of aging and nip other complications in the bud.

How we help using Physiotherapy at Home

Our professionals will visit elderly people at home and perform an extensive evaluation with their input: complications, problems will be discussed and objectives, routines, exercises will be implemented. The root of the problem is inactivity, where joints stiffen, and muscles weaken, leading not just to loss of mobility but other difficulties as well. Physiotherapy at Home remedies this and goes further. Here are some of the benefits of Physiotherapy:

  • Improves cardiovascular function, reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases
  • Decreases risk of developing Diabetes
  • Decreases risk of dangerous falls
  • Improves general mobility, making it easier to perform the regular daily function
  • Lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • Helps in managing conditions such as Osteoporosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Dementia
