Geriatric Care: How Physical Therapy Helps Older Adults

Geriatric Care: How Physical Therapy Helps Older Adults

Although recovering from illness or injury can be challenging at any age, it is even harder for older adults. With age comes a decline in strength and coordination, as well as chronic health conditions that make it difficult to perform everyday tasks. Hence, Physical Therapy (PT) has become an integral part of senior care in Brevard County.

Aside from hiring a pediatric nurse in West Palm Beach, Florida from your home care provider, you also have the option to hire a physical therapist for your senior loved one. Doing so increases their strength to support their joints and enhances their mobility to increase independence.

Here, we take a look at how physical therapy helps seniors:

  • Manage chronic conditions.
    Using physical therapy to manage chronic conditions is highly effective, particularly for conditions like arthritis. Through physical therapy, seniors can preserve the ability to perform daily activities with little assistance and restore the use of affected joints.
  • Reduce the risk of falls.
    According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), 1 in 4 seniors in the U.S. experience falls each year. Falls can cause fatal injuries and non-fatal, trauma-related hospital admissions in seniors. Through PT, seniors can enhance their flexibility, strength, and gait to reduce their risk of falls.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle.
    Exercising is a key factor in maintaining your health as we age. Through physical therapy provided by a provider of home care in Melbourne, Florida, your senior loved one can perform exercises to lead a more active and healthier lifestyle.
