The Importance of Physical Therapy for Seniors

Physical therapy can help seniors retain their independence, whether they are managing a long-term illness or just want to improve their general health and mobility.

The goal of physical therapy is to help restore and improve functionality, reduce pain and increase mobility for better strength and balance.

Falls are the major reason seniors require physical therapy.

As people age, they tend to lose flexibility, strength and often their balance, so maintaining the desired level of fitness becomes increasingly challenging.  Loss of these functions could lead to a fall that could cause serious injury. Physical therapy helps improve these functions.

Osteoporosis, which is a progressive bone disease characterized by a decrease in bone mass and density, can lead to an increased risk for fractures.  It is often the cause of many falls. Physical therapy and a regular exercise program help control the effects of this condition.

Strength training and exercise provided in physical therapy can also help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis.  People with arthritis can benefit from physical therapy because it provides exercises to help preserve the strength and use of the joints.   Physical therapy also teaches therapeutic methods to relieve discomfort through both physical techniques and activity modifications.

Physical therapy is prescribed in many cases following a hospital stay.  Skimping on post hospitalization therapy can cause serious repercussions.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

As mentioned before, when people age, the body can naturally lose flexibility, mobility, strength and even balance. Because of this, staying active is of utmost importance for seniors. Physical therapy can help the elderly improve their general health as well as help rehabilitate those with an injury or condition. As with any other type of therapy, however, the individual should first visit a healthcare professional to receive an appropriate exercise regimen. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
