Exercise

Geriatric physiotherapy consist of active activities such as stretching, balance exercises, weight bearing, strength straining, and specific exercises that are geared towards a particular injury or physical limitation.

Manual

Manual therapy is most often applied with the goal of improving a patient’s range of motion they may have lost due to an injury or lack of use therefore improving their mobility.

Education

Education is quite possibly the most important aspect to the success and effectiveness of a geriatric physiotherapy treatment plan.

Our physiotherapist designed a treatment plan that includes exercises that will increase a senior’s mobility and decrease their chance of injury through falling.
