Care of the Elderly

Vicky non banner

At PhysioExtra we understand that the physiological and mental side effects of old age are never as fun as the life journey preceding it. Sadly with old age, gradual loss of strength through weakening and stiffening muscles can reduce mobility and function, which can eventually lead to disability.

Physiotherapy and rehabilitation for the older person provides specialist care and management of a wide range of conditions associated with ageing.

We aim to improve quality of life and promote independence to allow the older person to remain at home and enjoy life to the full. Sessions can be at our clinic, or for the housebound, we can visit you in the safety of your own home or in your residential home; where ever is more appropriate or more comfortable for you.

Physiotherapy is an interactive process, which relies upon client participation to help to manage a condition. We offer bespoke, individualised treatment plans with manageable goals set up to build up muscles and increase confidence with everyday activities.

Conditions we can help and problems we can solve (not exhaustive):

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Pre and Post Operative
    • Joint Replacements
    • Fractures
    • Recovery Following Hospital Stays
  • Falls Prevention
  • Strokes and Other Neurological Conditions
  • Poor Balance and Mobility.

As well as providing treatment for ailments we can also give advice on aids to make moving easier in and outside the home. We can make day-to-day activities easier. For example we can help you to improve your walking, climbing stairs or getting in and out of bed.
