Elderly

The aging process is natural and affects everyone in different ways.

With age the body naturally becomes weaker, less flexible and less resistant to illness and injury. There are a large number of conditions that are common in the elderly because of this.

Physiotherapy is very important in treating these conditions by reducing symptoms, adapting function and maintaining quality of life.

Conditions that are common in the elderly include:

  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • General Deterioration
  • Heart Disease
  • Lung Disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
