Although the benefits of physiotherapy for older adults are well researched and documented, many people still believe physio is for athletes recovering from injury. In truth, physical therapy is just as focused on injury prevention, strength training, improving flexibility, increasing mobility and enhancing functional movement.

As we age, our bodies change. Seniors often suffer from issues such as back and joint pain, vertigo, arthritis, osteoporosis, limited mobility and weakened muscular strength. Fortunately, physiotherapy can help and can be an important component of your health and wellness plan.

Physiotherapy supports healthy aging in a wide variety of ways:

  1. Restored functionality

  2. Reduced pain

  3. Improved balance, strength, coordination, motor control, flexibility and endurance

  4. Reduced risk of falls

  5. Improved posture

  6. Improved endurance

At Advanced Physiotherapy, we carefully assess your movement patterns and create an individualized plan to help you move better. Whether you feel nervous on stairs or strive to improve your pickleball game, our team will work with you to help you achieve your goals. Ready to schedule your physiotherapy appointment?
