GERIATRIC REHABILITATION

Geriatric physiotherapy focuses on the unique movement

needs of older adults. There are many conditions that affect people as they grow older such as arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, joint replacements, and balance disorders.

The goal of our geriatric physiotherapy treatments is to help:

  • restore mobility affected by old age

  • reduce pain

  • workaround physical limitations

  • improve physical fitness and overall health
