Physical therapy is one of the best ways for people to get the exercise they need at a pace that works for their body. If you’re a senior citizen, a good physical therapy regimen can vastly improve your quality of life in a number of ways.
Gentle, routine activity can help with the stiffness that elderly people feel in so many joints:
The pain that makes it hard to move can actually be dealt with through the right type of movement.
While surgical procedures can be used to cure many ailments, there are side effects that lead to other sources of discomfort. It’s always best to try and improve your health naturally instead of going through surgery.
By increasing your mobility and becoming more active, you can help overcome balance issues and decrease your risk of falling. The fear of injury is something that keeps so many seniors from being active, so why not take the necessary steps to abate that fear and get back to moving freely?
For people who feel trapped inside their bodies and unable to get around, physical therapy is often the perfect solution. To learn more about how rehab and controlled movement can improve your life, contact Oakridge Gardens Rehabilitation & Memory Center at 920-739-0111.
